You've got to love The Star
The online election feature over at the Toronto Star highlights the seats won by the various political parties. Large type and bright colours. Here’s a skill testing question:
1. Are they in the order of the parties based upon seat count?
2. Are they in the order of the parties based upon electoral vote count?
3. Are they in the order of the parties based upon alphabetical order?
None of the above. What do you suppose is the foundation for this sequence:
Liberal – 76 seats, 26%; Conservative – 144 seats, 38%; NDP – 37 seats, 18%; Bloc – 50 seats, 10%; Green – 0 seats, 7%; Others – 2 seats, 0%.
Could it be predicated upon the recommended political choice of the editorial page?
