Tory MP Says They Are Ready For Election

Conservative Member of Parliament, Garth Turner, says the Federal tories are ready for an election and better prepared then the other political camps. However, news late last week that the Conservatives were down 9 points in Quebec may dilute Mr. Turner's enthusiasm.

Since both the New Democrats and Liberals have indicated that they will likely vote against the Softwood Lumber deal, will Harper continue his unholy alliance with the separatists? With a leap in their polling numbers, will the Bloc let the Tories fall?

The Hill Times investigates the Tory claim in an article dated August 28th, 2006.

Poll Story

I got called for that poll...first time ever...

Cool! How detailed were the questions?

Quebec was the only place the Cons were down, up in Ont & Maritimes. That was mostly because of the ME.

I think the Cons keep the election rumors flying to panic the Libs, and PMSH wants to go down in history as the PM with the longest running minority in history.

right of centre has his own therories.


It is interesting that right on the heels of Harper making the softwood lumber deal a matter of confidence in the House, a Tory MP starts bragging that they are ready for an election. It feels like posturing to me and the two events are not exclusive of each other. Likely just part of the Tory strategy to pass the deal.
