It has been one form of Tory or another for eons, '93 excepted, though. Personally I expect another Calgary Centre.

Forgot to post these CROP from a couple of days ago. 36-28-16-13 topline federally, 31 apiece among Francophones with a 57-19 Liberal lead over the Tories among non-Francophones. 308 projects that as 42-32-4, with the BQ being wiped out. Never seen the latter in a poll, don't recall last time I saw the first. Still happy results for me.

Provincially a 37-32-17 race, with a 39-27 PQ lead among Francophones. CROP projects a Liberal minority with those numbers. 308 60-57 PLQ.

So Harper takes Heritage? That would leave a nice safe seat open in Calgary Shepard

Odd that a Canadian riding has a Bengali name.

The riding doesn't exist yet, but it's named after this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnapore,_Calgary

Personally, I would've called the riding "Calgary - Acadia - Spruce Meadows" or perhaps just "Acadia - Spruce Meadows", but perhaps Calgary hasn't graduated to the point of being able to have ridings that don't have the city name in it (like Toronto, Montreal or... Winnipeg)

Heck, even Halifax has Dartmouth-Cole Harbour and Sackville-Eastern Shore. Tongue

(Recent) Amalgamations don't count, which is why I didn't include Ottawa. Although, contradicting this rule is Ottawa-Orleans which never included any part of Ottawa before amalgamation in 2001. For this reason, I'd just drop "Ottawa" from the name, and possibly add "Gloucester" after ("Orleans-Gloucester").

Gagnon unintentionally hilariously summarizes Couillard's tenure as PLQ leader thus far. Flip-flop, refuse to impose caucus discipline and hide from the media. Oh, and get interviewed by police. PRODIGAL SON RETURNS!!! This isn't the Couillard I remember from last time.

On another subject, Hastman interview.

Calandra trolled real hard today: calling Mulcair a corrupt Liberal who accepted that bribe and saying 3/4 of Grits have fraud convictions in their past.

Unfortunately that's an all-party consensus in Ontario now, even for the severely conservative Tories. Pity.

Coal is disgusting. Why shouldn't we ban it?

Conservatives are continuing to well-manage the public money, as they apparently appointed a friend of Flaherty as President of the Royal Mint.

Through, he apparently ran a tax-dodging scheme in the past. Another dubious appointment by Tories, we are getting used to it.

National Ipsos: 35 LPC, 29 CPC, 26 NDP. 37-30-29 in Ontario, 37L/30N/29C in BC, 33/27/27/12 in QC. Among highly motivated voters 37L. This said, I love me some comparative vote efficiency, among other things.

Parts of Quebec City could be a legit 4 way race like Gatineau in 08.

Yeah, that's projected as 126 Liberals, 121 Tories, 60 NDP and 30 BQ. Needless to say Harper would quit after a decent interval if the Tories were reduced to a minority. I find the Quebec numbers most interesting, given that they're very different from CROP which shows a BQ shutout (!). I'd believe CROP and Leger over Ipsos for QC myself.

Another thing is that a weak Liberal minority in 2015 could be bad for them long-term. Rookie PM has to form a government from aging (and not so aging, like Brison) veterans, many of whom I expect to retire soon, and newcomers not only to Parliament, but in many cases elected office and guide it to an early election against Kenney and Cullen/Leslie/? That's probably one reason why they've leaked a 2-election strategy before.
