151 Votes From the Brink

Liberals are trying to spin this morning that all is quiet on the western front, but the reality is that they came within 151 votes of an unprecedented disaster. At least Outremont was close in 2006. Vancouver Quadra was the SAFEST LIBERAL RIDING WEST OF TORONTO. As long as Stephen Harper stays away from killing kittens on live television, I don’t see a federal election in the near future…

Anyone notice that our votes have been slipping everywhere in the country ever since the "Quebec is a nation" vote?

I mean, supporting it got us nothing in any of the Quebec byelections, and clearly isn't working for us in SK or BC for that matter.

I'm not spinning, we were two busloads from complete and utter disaster. One thing to remember too, no one could accuse the leadership of not taking this race seriously, there was multiple visits.

Yes. They have. Except here.
Funny. That's a pattern. Was the same in 2000, 2004, and even 2006. I must be a lucky charm of sorts.

I'm flattered that you'd suggest such a correlation, but I ain't going back. I'm retired.

Antonio,

I guess you forgot about Winnipeg-South Centre (Fort Garry) whatever you called it. Regina Wascana is pretty safe too. Who is going to challenge Hedy with her popularity in Van Centre?

Quadra was important because it was a beacon for the Grits in the dark days of the John Napier Turner era. That we fell asleep on the wheel and merely avoided driving head-on into a bus showed the Grits are still not getting it.
