SAM TANENHAUS BETTER GET CRACKING ON HIS SEQUEL, "THE DEATH OF LIBERALISM":

Tories lead in Toronto. Sun rises in West (Kelly McParland, 10/09/09, National Post)

[T]his Ekos poll is so striking I can't help it. Forget the general collapse of Liberal support, now trailing the Conservatives in every region of the country (and third to the NDP in British Columbia). Also nevermind the apparent popularity of the Greens in Alberta -- 12.5%, a virtual tie with the Liberals and NDP -- which suggests the few Albertans who don't support the Tories are so distraught they've given up trying.

What's really astonishing are the figures suggesting the Conservatives are 10 points ahead of the Liberals in Toronto, and four times as popular as the NDP. If the poll is accurate, the Liberals' last redoubt, its ability to pull votes in big cities, has all but disappeared. In all of Canada, only the island of Montreal continues to cling desperately to its faith in the party. And not by much.
