  1. Not that I agree that's the likely end result for the NDP. But I would think the possibility is worth keeping in mind as leverage in negotiating over amendments to the registry: might the Cons have some incentive to cut a deal to both preserve the registry for their own fund-raising purposes (with due posturing about having no choice due to the big bad opposition parties ganging up on them) and avoid the danger of strengthening the Libs?

  2. Sadly, I think the trains have left the station.
