The Conservatives face an uphill battle with some polls still showing them at less than 30% of the vote. They had 29.6% of the vote last election day.
Still, Harper sounds like he gets it when he says "It's never enough to show the country what we are against. We will offer them a positive vision for the future of this country." Let's see how well he does that.
We all know the Bloq Quebecois will do well. But, I really wonder how they will react if it starts to look like Stephen Harper will win. Will some of those voters act like NDPers and vote Liberal to avoid a Conservative win? On one hand, the Conservatives support policies that decentralize the country. On the other hand, Quebec is the most left-leaning province in the country.
Olivia Chow has quit her City Council seat to run once more against Tony Ianno in Trinity-Spadina. She may have her best chance yet of beating him, and joining hubby Layton in Ottawa. Sounds like she is trying to make the Toronto Port Authority a major issue. Someone claiming to be a former candidate in the riding suggests that she doesn't have the organizational skills to win.
Re: Michael Ignatieff... One would think that actually living in the country during one's adulthood might count for something.
