No Spring Election?

I read this encouraging piece by Darrel Bricker of Ipsos-Reid this morning and was struck by this part of the final paragraph.

" means that, unless Dion and the Liberals see a major dip in support, a spring election is off. Why? Because, given their current prospects, the NDP and Bloc are unlikely to agree to bring the government down."

The reason this struck me was because I'd been wondering yesterday just how far Layton and the NDP were willing to go in supporting the Harper Conservatives.

The blatant electoral triangulation that led Layton and the NDP to jettison support for the national childcare program in favour of bums on chairs makes me think we ain't seen nuthin' yet.
