    The leadership battle should be very interesting. The result could tell us a lot about whether a coalition or merger on the left is something that is a real possibility (as opposed to being the Canadian equivalent of "Beltway gossip") or something that is a pie in the sky.

    As others have pointed out, though, a splintered left wing and a unified right wing in a FPTP parliamentary system is a recipe for Conservative dominance in both the short and long term, even in a country that is naturally left-of-center. Reminds me of the old Franklin cartoon a bit.
