Neck and neck with the Liberals in the Prairies, since it includes Alberta the Conservative majority is an anomaly, and neck and neck with the Conservatives in the Maritimes. The messaging that real change means voting NDP looks like it is hitting home even this early. And in B.C. that means coming up the middle between the Conservatives and Liberals.

So if we have another minority parliment that will be the time to push for real change; reform the electoral system to Proportional Representation.

Proportional representation is great, if you want constant instability like in Israel, for example. If you want constant minorities and endless replays of the last year and a half, you'll get it with PR.

You get more done with a minority that a majority. The latter just guarantees a culture of entitlement
