- Few will go as far as Mainstreet’s boss did last night (see here), but something happened over Thanksgiving. Clearly. The election had turned into a referendum on Stephen Harper, and folks gathered over the weekend to talk about what to do about that. The NDP wasn’t an option anymore – the niqab, plus this stuff, is likely why – so the ABC folks started moving towards the Grits. And they’re still moving.
- Quebec voters could consolidate still, behind the CPC. But with the NDP down to single digits in Ontario, just about, la belle province may be the Tories’ last hope. It feels like folks have settled in. They don’t seem to be in a mood to change their minds, after such a long campaign. And their mood is clearly not terribly favourable towards the incumbent.
- Anyway, here’s three predictive things about all that. First, my prediction (and that of three senior Liberal friends) back in February, which now may just come true. Second, last night’s prediction, suggesting that the LPC is the only party that stands to “win.” Third, the first Adler-Kinsella get together on Canada Talks on SiriusXM last night. Have a great one.
