Politics can be unpredictable.
Polls sometimes suggest wildly different things about the mood of the electorate. Politicians whose careers seem to be on the rocks can bounce back, while other one-time stars fade into obscurity. And as we saw in Alberta earlier this month, when the leader of the official Opposition crossed the floor to the government benches, just about anything can happen.
So, as we head into 2015, we here at The Huffington Post Canada thought for fun we'd reach out to some psychics to see what the stars could have in store for us.
But please keep in mind: this is just a bit of merriment to be enjoyed with your leftover egg nog.
HuffPost sent along some political questions to three professional soothsayers: Ottawa-based psychic Colleen McIntosh, the owner of Angel Divinations, medium psychic Michele from Metcalfe, Ont., and Toronto-based Amanda from Psychic Amanda Studio.
They don't all agree on how things will play out next year but there are some interesting similarities.
And as we head into an election year, two of the three tell us that while federal Liberals may want Canadians to embrace hope and change next year, another Conservative government is in the cards for 2015.
So, let's have a look at what could be coming and we'll check back in a year's time to see who was most accurate.
Will Julian Fantino be replaced at Veterans Affairs before the next federal election?
Michele: I do not predict that Julian Fantino will be replaced.
Amanda: So looking into this... yes, it does show Mr. Fantino will be replaced. I do see a change of position for him. It also shows here he is not performing the best or is not best-suited right now for the position he is in. He will be replaced and soon.
Will Leona Aglukkaq be replaced as minister of the environment before the next election?
Michele: Leona Aglukkaq will not be acting minister of the environment, the replacement will come before next election.
Colleen: No, not likely.
Amanda: No, not at all. Looking into the cards, it shows me that she is performing to the standards and expectations of her superiors and those she is providing her services for. As well, it also shows me she has great passion and enjoys what she is doing and she did get elected for a good reasons. Not only was she greatly qualified, her good intention led her to this position.
Will the federal election be earlier than Oct. 19, 2015?
Michele: The federal election will be announced earlier than Oct. 19 2015
Amanda: No, I do not see that this event will be hosted on another day. It shows me here that it will remain like this.
Which party will win the next federal election?
Michele: The Conservatives will win, but by a very slight margin
Colleen: The Conservatives, by a landslide.
Amanda: I see this will be a close one between Conservatives and Liberals, but for this upcoming election it shows me here the Liberals will be victorious.
Will it be a minority or majority government?
Michele: It will definitely be minority
Colleen: It will be a clear majority.
Amanda: It shows here that this will be a majority .
Will Stephen Harper still be the leader of the Conservative Party this time next year?
Michele: Stephen Harper will step down as leader of Conservative party.
Colleen: Harper stays on.
Amanda: Yes, I do see him assuming the same position for this time. After this election, this will be it for Mr. Harper. I do see him focusing his energies in different directions. It shows he did many things he intended and will set his sights to new goals and objectives.
Will Thomas Mulcair still be leader of the NDP this time next year?
Michele: Thomas Mulcair will still lead the NDP.
Colleen: Thomas Mulcair... no. I get that he steps down (after the election).
Amanda: No, it shows here Mr. Mulcair will remain in this position next year. It shows me here that he enjoys what he is doing as well and has not yet finished what he intends to accomplish. And his intents are good.
Will Trudeau still be leader of the Liberals this time next year?
Michele: Trudeau will definitely be leader of the Liberals with his party backing him stronger
Colleen: Yes. The campaign is going to (be about) hope and change because "hope and change" kept coming in. I’m assuming it’s going to be their little byline.
Amanda: Yes, he will. He is very passionate about where he is right now and what he wants to do and I see him being very successful.
Will Senator Mike Duffy be found guilty (on any or all of the charges)?
Michele: Senator Mike Duffy will be found guilty.
Colleen: Mike Duffy... no. (She says she ‘heard’ something about the bank. “Maybe there was an irregularity at the bank? I don’t know. That’s all I got.”)
Amanda: I do see here many blockages in his pathways and much negativity surrounding him. I do see many allegations will be proven. He will be found guilty on almost all his charges.
Will Obama approve the Keystone pipeline project?
Michele: Obama will not OK the Keystone project
Amanda: No, I see he has mixed emotions about this situation and for many different reasons. And he has double-guessed this project a lot. It shows me he does not want to do this project.
Will Greg Selinger still be Manitoba premier this time next year?
Michele: Manitoba will replace Greg Selinger as premier
Amanda: It shows me here his heart is in the right spot but unfortunately right now he’s dealing with many different issues which is making it harder for him to focus on the goal of upholding his current position. But I do see him winning, but just barely
Who will win the Ontario PC leadership race?
Michele: It will be Christine Elliott.
Colleen: Patrick Brown.
Amanda: It will be close between a few candidates but I see Christine Elliott being elected.
Who will win the P.E.I. Liberal leadership race?
Michele: The Liberal leadership in P.E.I., I predict, will be (won by) Wade Maclauchlan
Colleen: Didn't get anything.
Amanda: Honestly, there are not many candidates right now for me to look into this. Looking into the names of potential candidates and current candidates, it shows me here the (one with the) highest potential of being elected right now is Wade MacLauchlan
Will Alberta's Wildrose party cease to exist in 2015?
Michele: The Wildrose Party will keep going and continue to exist in 2015.
Colleen: Out. I think they are going to be literally gone.
Amanda: No, I see it will remain. I don’t see any change of position. I see this party upholding it usual status.
Any other unexpected event we should be on the look out for?
Michele: I predict that the election in 2015 will be the closest in history.
Colleen: British Columbia votes for the Green party in a big way.
