If the Conservatives don't win a majority...

We might look for the explanation in Ontario, particularly Toronto. The city is the place where the Conservatives have the furthest to go to win seats.

Perhaps it because at least some in Ontario and Toronto remember the Harris-Eves years, which brought us Walkerton and Ipperwash, the Hydro and Highway 407 privatization fiascos, forced municipal amalgamations, the hollowing out of public transit, shambolic education “reforms”, eroding public health care, concealed fiscal deficits accompanied by pious, hypocritical sermons of fiscal rectitude, and all finished off in April 2003 by Ernie Eves speaking out in favour of George Bush’s war of empire in Iraq. And that is not a complete list.
