Tory Top 30 -- All Hits All The Time

John Ibbitson said in the Globe and Mail over the weekend that the Tories had a list of 30 seats they could win. I decided to sit down and start analyzing things and come up with my own list of seats, with help in finding the last few (and identifying one good one I missed) from someone more knowledgeable about these things than me. In fact we're now up to 31! (All hits all the time! 31 straight hits with no commercials!)

Many of these seats are implausible given the current polls, but anyway....

NWFD Avalon, St. John's East, St. John's South-Mount Pearl

NB Madawaska-Restigouche, Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe

PEI Malpeque

QUE Chicoutimi-Le Fjord, Lac-Saint-Louis, Louis Hebert, Mount Royal, Richmond-Arthabaska

ONT Ajax-Pickering, Bramalea-Gore-Malton, Brampton Springdale, Brampton West, Eglinton-Lawrence, Guelph, Kingston and the Islands, London North Centre, Mississauga South, Sault Ste Marie, Welland, York Centre

MAN Elmwood-Transcona

ALB Edmonton-Strathcona

BC Burnaby-Douglas, Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca, New Westminster-Coquitlam, Vancouver South

NWT Western Arctic

YUK Yukon

Now if anybody wants to order them for me by likelihood....

Next task is to pick the most likely seats that would get us to a majority....

The Real Scandal

How 'bout the Auditor General says "I am outraged that drafts of my reports are being stolen and leaked for political purposes. These acts endanger the very important political neutrality of this office, both the perceived neutrality and possibly the real neutrality, depending on the identity of the perpetrators. I have asked the RCMP to investigate and find the perpetrators tout de suite (as we say here in Ottawa)"?
