A few speed bumps for Mini Bush

Entering the final week of the Quebec campaign, the PQ takes the lead:
"The latest survey conducted by Strategic Council for the Globe and Mail and CTV suggested 32 per cent of respondents supported the Parti Quebecois, 30 per cent favoured the governing Liberals and 26 per cent backed the ADQ.

But the race is to close to call when the margin of error is considered.

The poll surveyed 1,000 voters between March 14 and 15. The results are considered accurate within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times in 20.

Mr. Boisclair said Friday that even with a slim PQ victory, he would seek a referendum. He maintained the PQ will form a majority government.

Campaigning in Quebec City on Saturday, the energized PQ leader said his performance in last week's televised leaders' debate breathed new life into his party's campaign."
What do you think about that, Mr. Harper? Not playing out the way you hoped, has it? If it's a PQ or ADQ minority government, this is a rebuke to Harper, no question. Maybe that's why he appeared angry, pale and sweaty in his speech in Toronto last night. Or is it just me who had that impression...:) (CP)

With the federal budget slated for Monday, it'll be very interesting to see how it plays out this week in the campaign.
