And now for the bad news. The CPC has swept Saskatchewan as a result of the Child Porn slur. Proctor and Nystrom lost by a handful of votes each.
They go down as heros.

Barring any reversals on recount, 155+ for the LPC/NDP combination looks firm.  The CBC website shows 154 firm ridingsright now and at least one of the others, Western Arctcic is a firm tossup between the LPC and the NDP.  Still this is a parliament that could be brought down by a by-election or two even if the LPC and NDP don't want it.
Actually the NDP/LPC Coalition is exactly at 155 seats because the Liberals need to nominate a speaker of the house who does not vote unless there is a tie. Also, if martin is implicated in the Adscam and sponsorship scandals when the report is released we may see the NDP rethink it's posistion on an informal government. I don't think even then the NDP would stand in the way of a no confidence vote.

Does the speaker need to be a sitting member of the house though?

In the US house, techicnally he does not...remember something about this when dingell gave up his seat.

I think the Speaker of the House is the senior member of the Party in power.

Don't forget that the Conservatives and the other parties might wear down the liberals already tenuous hold on the Commons if they can win any By-elections that might result between now and the next election.

Nathen Cullen has taken Skeena-Bulkley Valley! Yeeesssssss!!!!!!!!!

There's a really, really tight race in Vancouver Island North: incumbent CPC MP John Duncan (who had been expected to walk re-election) is leading by just 26 votes with 4 polls to come in.

And in New Westminster-Coquitlam where a Dipper challenger leads the CPC incumbent by 75 votes with a few polls left to close

Would have liked to have seen the PC proportion of elected CPC members be larger.

Oh well.

And technically as long as he reaches 155, it doesn't matter
 
308/2=154
Since 155 is 50% +1 seat

The Opposition tops out at 153

so the speaker doesn't vote.

Straight coalition line votes...
154-153, 1 present.

But things could change if the Sponsorship Scandal actually implicates Paul Martin. If it does, All bets are off as the Conservatives and the Bloc would introduce a motion of no confidence. Such a measure would make Jack Layton think twice about supporting Martin.

As a general point I still think that the Dippers should have picked Blaikie as leader.

The Liberals may be Center-Left but they also want to govern, they'll work with the NDP.

And Canada has only gotten better since the 1970s. Outside of those dark days of Mulrooney. Besides, I'm Canadian, I think I'd know, and so would my family if things had become terrible.

Yes. By 702 votes. In a race she was expected by the media to walk.

Even odds she's the conservative leader in the next federal election?

Depends when it's called... if Martin calls another one soon and wins a majority it'll be bye-bye Harper.
