With less than five months to the next federal election (October 19 is the election date fixed by law), polling by EKOS Research confirms a tight three-way race is underway.

Current EOKS projections show the Conservatives losing their majority in the House of Commons, but winning the most seats.

There are enough Canadian voters who want to "heave Steve" to ensure a Conservative defeat … except that the Canadian electoral system makes votes for winning candidates efficient votes, and consigns votes for losing parties to the dustbin.
