Canada’s never-to-be-majority government

This may end up being premature, but I’ll call it anyway: Harper will never lead a majority Conservative government in Canada. He’s lost all the seats in the Atlantic provinces, most if not all of the 12 Saskatchewan seats, isn’t gaining ground in Ontario, and $700 million can’t buy Quebec, according to today’s Decima poll:

The poll also put the Liberals ahead in Ontario, 39-33, and had the Bloc rebounding in Quebec to 38 per cent, followed by the Liberals at 23 and the Conservatives at 16 per cent.
