Threehundredeight

I would be remiss if I didn't link to the wonderful Canadian election website, Threehundredeight.  (There are 308 seats in the Canadian parliament, hence the name.) 

In case you didn't already know this, everything comes to Canada a little late.  Tivo, Netflix and Ben and Jerry's all took years to break into the Canadian market - sometimes the delay is caused by companies having to work through a different regulation regime than in the US (one that's no less complex - see Virgin America, e.g.) and sometimes it's a perception that the Canadian market is fundamentally different than the American one.

One more thing that came to Canada very late is quantitative political analysis, trailing Nate Silver's 538 by almost three years.  The modeling is similar, the insights similarly good, and the anger that it inspires among people who just don't understand polling is similarly palpable.  One day, Canada will also understand sampling - perhaps after 308 nails the results of the upcoming election.
