No majority government again. CBC is projecting the following seat distribution for the House of Commons:
Conservatives 143 Liberals 71 BLQ 47 NDP 30 Other 2
I think the Conservatives needed to get a majority if they were to have any chance of becoming a dynasty like the Liberals were in previous decades. The Liberals are now likely to replace Mr. Dion with someone who might be more of a vote getter. And as the economy sinks, the Conservatives will decline in popularity, opening the door to a Liberal governmentwithin two years or so.
