From the Calgary Sun:
MONTREAL -- A recent poll suggests the Conservatives have a slight lead over the Liberals.
The Leger Marketing survey gives the Tories 38% support, the Liberals 31%, the NDP 14% and the Bloc Quebecois 8%.
In Quebec, the Liberals (32%) and the Bloc (31%) are in a battle and are followed by the Conservatives at 24%.
In Ontario, the Tories are at 40%, compared to the Liberals' 35%.
The poll of 1,500 Canadians was conducted from Jan. 30 to Feb. 4, shortly after the Conservatives unveiled ads critical of Liberal Leader Stephane Dion.
Good Quebec news but, as Paul Wells notes, the infamous anti-Dion ads have not yet run in Quebec. We shall see whether this is a blip or something longer lasting. Baird's performance yesterday suggests the former.
