“We as Conservatives are not focused on an election,” he said. “But, friends, when an election does come, Canadians are going to face a pretty stark choice. The next election will be a choice between a Parliament with a majority made up of a Liberal-NDP-Bloc Quebecois coalition, or it will be a stable majority for our Conservative government.”Read more at the National Post.

Give me a Majority or suffer the Coalition!
Harper today has gone into attack the coalition mode again, just like late 2008. Except this time the coalition doesn't exist. But, once again Harper doesn't focus on facts, rather trying to use the world of make-believe to lower Liberal support. The truth is that there is no coalition being planned. The new Harris-Decima poll gives the Conservatives only a ten seat lead (117). There is every possibility that the Liberals could gain a government on their own during an election. After the election, then there might be talks. But right now, no party is focused on a coalition, just getting its own support up, which so far, has worked for the Liberals. We'll see if Stephen Harper can scare Canadians into saying no to the Liberals.
