A quick post.
Given recent developments, I've decided to present the party standings in the Senate (here in Canada) in a new way.
With the growth of non-partisans, the main dividing lines may become geographic. As the non-partisans have yet to form any sort of crossbench, I've decided to run with the geographic idea.
I've also tried to distinguish the non-partisans based on who appointed them, generally assuming that those appointed by Liberals would lean left, and those by Tories would lean right. I also made a final adjustment for Senators who have expressed their own previous partisan opinions, such as Anne Cools, who had been keen on Harper at one point in time.
As such, I present to you the current party standings in the Senate:
There is still some refinement work to do, but in general, I am happy with how this has turned out.
Brown = Liberal-appointed or leaning, Light Blue = Conservative appointed/leaning?ReplyDelete
Sorry, Dark Blue = Conservative-appointed/leaning?Delete
