Actually the 3 non-progressive right-wing parties, the Libs, the Cons, and the Greens, are polling 67% of the vote in Durham.

There is no story in Alberta as the Cons are now pulling away from the pack, and no one expected much for the NDP in Alberta

But the big story tonite is why have the Liberals crashed and burned in Ontario?

Dear me, are you suggesting...the Liberal results...might be a pyrrhic victory?

Or perhaps an old NDP favourite; a moral victory?

So glad to see the Liberals' tender embrace of their third party status Laughing

Debater

Looks like the Conservatives are 20 points ahead in Durham.

If that stays like that, it may get called soon.

NorthReport

There is no contest in Calgary Centre, except in the minds of party spin doctors.

Conservative Joan Crockett is walking away with it now in Alberta.

Harper will sleep well tonite.

Keep telling yourself that, North Report.

The big story of the night is that whereas the NDP didn't even come close to the Conservatives in Durham, the Liberals are likely going to finish a very close 2nd to the Conservatives in the heart of Western Canada.  Meanwhile the NDP is down in the single digits in Calgary Centre.

Too soon to say for sure what it means for the next election, but it appears that the Liberals are back in the game and that Mulcair has not caught on fire yet.

Arthur, you should apologize for that.  That is name-calling, and really worthy of a moderator to tell you.  I haven't called you names.  And it's 'losing', by the way.

And if the Liberals finish a close 2nd to the CPC, that's almost as good as a win.  It will be the NDP who have lost.  Let's look at this objectively.

The NDP is going to lose Durham. It's going to lose Durham  badly. Yet with what's been learned (and achieved) in this byelection (the NDP vote went up by 10% for the second election in a row), the NDP is going to run much more effective campaign in dozens and dozens of previously Liberal-Conservative ridings. The NDP is literally going to push the Liberals off the (Ontario) electoral map. Just like they've done in much of Western Canada. The Liberals will be clinging to a few urban and suburban Ontario enclaves by the very skin of their teeth, while their poll numbers drop through the basement. Tonight the Liberals had their fun in Calgary but they will have hemorraghed even worse than the 2011pocalyse everywhere else.

People in glass house much Debater?

NorthReport

In the real world Alberta belongs to the Cons.

And in the real world Ontario is required to defeat Harper and so far tonite the Liberals have failed miserably in that regard, as the NDP vote is almost double that of the Liberals in Durham, even with their next coronated leader Trudeau having visited the riding. 

I would say so far it is a very bad nite for the Liberals.

If Justin Trudeau becomes Liberal leader, he has the potential to do well.  I'm not saying he will become Prime Minister yet, but Mulcair is unlikely to do so either.  The Conservatives know Trudeau is a threat - that's why they released an old interview last week before the Calgary by-election.  They've seen his rising poll numbers.

"Tories target Trudeau as poll suggests his popularity keeps growing"

Conservatives have launched their first concerted attack on Justin Trudeau — and a new poll may explain why.

The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey suggests the Liberal leadership front-runner's popularity is not the fleeting celebrity phenomenon that the skeptics had assumed.

It's actually increasing and has the potential to siphon off votes from all parties, including the Tories.

The poll was released Thursday just as the Conservatives pounced on a two-year-old television interview to accuse Trudeau of being anti-Alberta.

Forty-two per cent of respondents said they'd be certain or likely to vote Liberal in the next election if Trudeau was at the helm — enough to form a comfortable Liberal majority government.

Spin it all you like but there is no evidence of any resurgence for the Liberals who are third or fourth in Ontario, losing in Alberta, and are getting absolutely crushed in BC. So much for the "Trudeau" mythology.

Calgary Centre is the story of the night.

Btw, I think the Liberals have moved back into the lead in Calgary Centre.  I'm getting some ground reports from the riding.

Nope, unlike Karl Rove, I don't make things up.  The people calling in data from polling stations are getting it before it goes on the Elections Canada website.  So you should see the Conservative numbers narrow soon.

Simple question: Why have the Trudeau Liberals failed so miserably in Ontario? And BC?

Debater

NDP numbers have shrunk somewhat in Durham, and Liberal numbers have grown slightly.  Not particularly significant, but will affect the overall numbers.  Conservatives over 50% there.

DURHAM  [190/236]

Conservative - 50.6%

NDP - 26.7%

Liberal - 16.8%

Greens doing better than expected in VICTORIA - now Tied with the NDP.

Liz May must be happy tonight!

GREENS narrowly ahead in VICTORIA !

Maybe Elizabeth May is going to be more successful than we previously thought.  And the Greens are running a strong 3rd in Calgary Centre (and probably the reason Crockatt is narrowly ahead).

It'd be sickening if the Greens took Victoria.  It would be a massive swing to the right and a mandate to do nothing about the sewage system.  As far as I can see, the Greens made no positive promises in that riding at all. 

Who knew Victoria residents would be this big on doing nothing about raw sewage?

GREENS are having a big night - no doubt about it.  Not in DURHAM, no, but they are having a major effect in both CALGARY CENTRE and VICTORIA.  They are tied with the NDP in VICTORIA and may be throwing the election to the Conservatives in CALGARY CENTRE.

They may be emerging as a player whether the Liberals & NDP like it or not.

(on edit)

newest results put the NDP 1 vote ahead.  Hopefully, that trend will hold and accelerate.  The Greens are only running this close, I think, because the local Liberals voted for them strategically just to mess over the NDP.

GREENS are having a big night - no doubt about it.  Not in DURHAM, no, but they are having a major effect in both CALGARY CENTRE and VICTORIA.  They are tied with the NDP in VICTORIA and may be throwing the election to the Conservatives in CALGARY CENTRE.

They may be emerging as a player whether the Liberals & NDP like it or not.

<p>Not looking at all good for the Liberals as their vote has droped more than 50% in BC and is down in Ontatio as well.</p>
