By-Election Fever

The blogosphere seems to have been hit with a case of by-election fever. Why? I'm not really sure. The most compelling race out there is the one (SK) that no one is covering. If Bob Rae or Martha Hall Findlay don't win it's a disaster. Joyce Murray losing would be equally disastrous considering we've won that riding the last two times out. The last won might be a toss-up. However, Saskatchewan is a province that Liberals need to do well in if we are going to retake government. The natives (and non-natives) are restless on the prairie, just ask Lorne Calvert. Federal angst is compounded over Conservative plans for the Wheat Board (compulsory I know nothing about the wheat board parenthetical) The Liberals have a chance to tap into that natural gas induced unease. Desneth√©—Missinippi—Churchill River is a swing riding. We need to win in swing ridings in order to get back into government. Is a loss there disastrous? No. However, it won't bode well for our ability to form a government in the next election.

Nothing more, nothing less

It is a huge IF
