I would like to take this opportunity to remind Canadians of a silly little thing called math:
Seats in the House of Commons
Liberal + NDP: 114
Bloc Quebecois: 49
The political spin is thick as egg nog this holiday season, but the mathematical reality remains that both the Conservatives and the Liberal-NDP coalition are going to need to depend on the Bloc Quebecois if they wish to survive in this Parliament.
