Byelection brouhaha: The final numbers

  1. Since Wherry likes to dig up old stuff for further comparison, it would be nice if he could dig up some by-election results when the Liberals were in power, say about 10-15 years ago, and to let us have a look at what was being said then. Just for comparison, you know. To set things into the right context.

    • If you back aways, I think there’s a lot of analysis around the time the CPC started it’s “Government always loses byelections” bit.
