It's On : Reports

Several media outlets are reporting that Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff will no longer support the Conservative government and that we're headed for an election campaign starting at the beginning of October.

Of course, we've heard these sort of reports ever since the first minority government was elected in 2004. But with a $2-million ad-campaign about to start, the opportunity to vote down the government in a few weeks, and two other opposition parties extremely unlikely to back down, I'd say the odds are strongly in favour of an election in a few weeks.

When and if an election does take place, I plan to give full coverage with daily projection updates, daily poll reports, and general political coverage.

Ignatieff is expected to speak to the Liberal MPs gathered in Sudbury later today, and we should get a better idea of what he's thinking at that time.
