Conservatives no longer expect to win majority: party source

NDP’s rise in Quebec, B.C. hampers campaign

by

Senior members of the federal Conservatives have privately admitted to the Toronto Star that the party is unlikely to win a majority in Monday’s election. The NDP’s late-campaign surge is expected to cost the Tories seats in both Quebec and B.C., according to party sources. As a result, they estimate the Conservatives would need an extra 23 seats in Ontario to get the 155 seats they need for a majority, which they now say is out of reach. “It all comes down to Ontario and we’re just not there,” an unidentified source told the Star.
