        also, I think this is as good a place as any to start hypothesizing what would happen if Conservatives get a minority victory.

        I think if NDP comes second, conservatives will get to govern. NDP just does not have enough competent bodies to fill government posts (obviously only an opinion, not a fact). If it is the liberals at second or first overall, we will get to experience Ignatieff as PM.

          I think it is very difficult to predict. I expect quite a bit of instability if the opposition party tries to form a government. It would hurt the Conservatives to give up power, but I think it would be suicide for the Liberal party in particular to be involved in any coalition that gives the Bloc the power to take more wealth to Quebec. It just doesn't match the Federalist roots of the Liberal party (not as big a deal for the NDP who are not as Federalist despite their belief in big government).

            Where is the Liberal/NDP joint government - Conservative opposition ?

              ^that can't happen straight away, unless the Liberals or NDP are the minority leader. Grish is right, that might happen if the conservatives form a minority government, then that fails to win enough support.

                that's the discussion I have attempted to initate. At the end of May 2, there might be conservative minority with either Liberals or NDP in second place. If Lib/NDP combine with majority total, they might agree to defeat government on the first confidence measure (i.e. the budget or after the release of the official G8/G20 summit auditor report). If they defeat the government, they might decide to form a government. That could either be an individual 2nd place party or a combination of 2nd and 3rd.

                My opinion is that if Libs are second, they will try to do it alone relying on the NDP to vote with them on confidence motions. If it is the NDP, the libs might refuse to participate and take us down yet another election (that would be a waste, btw), or they will actually form a coalition and we will have a mix of government from the two parties.

                  I'm just glad we're out west... them easterners are going to be up late waiting to see how it plays out. It'll be coming down to the last reporting poll in this one.

                      No predictions. But I will vote NDP.

                      The CPC must go. There are no decent words for them, nor for too many of their supporters.

                      I had thought I'd vote Liberal, but it's hopeless. As regards the NDP... I despise their stand on welfare and their general pretense of compassion. But... their fiscal policy is not socialist (this was a surprise), just a somewhat old-fashioned Keynesianism. God knows, the fake and obscene lying scum that pretend to be free marketeers but are not have not done very well in the end. So with misgivings, NDP it is.

                        ^I would have voted different if I knew the revelations tonight about John Layton were going to come out. Canadians are very prudish about sex, I expect a lot of the NDP support in Catholic Quebec is going to be impacted, the next few days are going to be very interesting.

                          ^My life experience has been that anyone who brings that sort of thing up against someone else is very likely a porn freak drug addict pedophiles. (I speak of course about the source of the smear.)

                          The timing, everything else -- just too good.

                          The massage-parlor crap is just what you would expect from the people who bribe MPs dying of cancer and channel money from the prime minister's office to their favorite whores.

                          Anyway, it's not as though most of the good old boys who are so shocked, shocked at this don't leer obscenely at whatever booty happens to stick in their face. Like, dig the lingerie footballo league, doods!

                            Watching SUN news moahunter??

                            If you cared to check you would see that most reputable news sources have already discredited their "story".

                              Does the NDP have enough candidates running to obtain a minority. I believe they do not even have enough people to fill the ridings
