    Default Ramifications of a Minority Government

    Well ,neither party will support a minority Conservative govt. Mulclair hates Trudeau so unlikely Mulclair will support Trudeau if the Liberals get a minority. I see another election.

    No need to worry Sharon, the Conservitives will eke out a small majority and all will be well for 4 years. October 19 is my birthday and I asked for a con majority, so it will be a con majority. Lol.

    I'm reminded by the UK general election where all the media had posted polls showing terrible disatisfaction with their government,villifying them at every turn in an attempt to drive the leftist agenda. They had them down and out and the labor opposition were having a hay day glad-handing and backslapping right up until election day evening. When the results from the polls came in,Prime Minister David Cameron had not only won the election,but,with a landslide majority diametrically against all the polling hype. Could the same thing happen,here? It may be quite possible.

    Mulcair hates everybody. Really,he's your typical opportunist,saying anything,doing anything that he thinks will garner crdibility and votes. He says he isn't interested in working with either party,so,a minority government may have a possibility of short term survivability if he choses to sit tight and pout (actually,it could be a good thing). The only downside would be the Bloc (if they land any seats) which could give them a balance of power to some extent,but,again,that would be very short lived. I believe that any minority government,no matter which party forms it,will not survive the first "confidence vote",likely to be a budget.
