My fear is Canada is headed for a recession if the neo cons are elected just like where the US is headed soon.

Harper being a George Bush groupie will not help the Canadian economy.

Recession and deficits: it's a conservative thing!!!

TonyToo the NDP called this election. Blame the right people for a Conservative majority.

Indeed -- if I were right-leaning, I would not be voting for Harper. He's done nothing to demonstrate that he's a "conservative"; the deficit that will result if he's elected will be astronomical.

And the right says WE'RE fiscally irresponsible.

I am not convinced that the Conservatives will win the election at this point, let alone win a majority.

I think is a long way from over as well.

I do think a Lib minority and Con majority are equally unlikely at this stage.

All Martin needs is the polls to move back to 5 per cent, and to catch some break out there with something, and the dominant media line (Harper as PM, Libs in chaos collapsing) will have to be entirely reworked. A couple of days of headlines like The Race Tightens along with making the case that there is a reason to fear Harper and his gang will move loads of folks. There are already some signs of this happening now. Lord knows there is more than enough material to throw at Harper. I mean have they even really flushed him out on his own views on the death penalty or abortion?

As always the media will have the major role in determining this. If the CBC decides to continue to stand in as unpaid (?) Harper flaks (hows about Hebert, Coyne and Murphy for a balanced trio of commentators?) we're looking at the Thatcher years here in Canada.

As for Jack (and I'm a backer) if he goes to the finish line pulling his punches on Harper, he could even make me consider voting strategically for the hated Liberals, which I have never countenanced before.
