We have a tie!

As of 11:30 PM in B.C., there's a last minute fly in the ointment for the NDP and Liberals.

In New Westminster-Coquitlam, Tory Paul Forseth has won a squeaker!

That leaves these numbers:

Liberals 135
NDP 19

Tories 99
Bloc 54
Chuck Cadman (until yesterday a Tory MP) 1

Despite this, David Anderson was quoted as saying, earlier this evening, "We will govern as if we have a majority."

Did Anderson really say that? Surely he's old enough to remember Clark saying that in 1979.

I recall David Anderson saying something like that on TV late last night in B.C..

Here's a direct quote from Mr. Anderson in this morning's Province. If I paraphrased him above, he seems to certainly think along these lines:

"...we've got a very solid minority and Mr. Martin can govern without any by-your-leave to any of the other parties."

Hope this helps. Where are the Creditistes when you need them? :)
