The Possibiltiy of A Coalition of the Losers

The outcome of the election will be either a Conservative Majority or a Coalition of the losers.  John Ivison points out his article the very real possibility of a coalition if the Conservatives don't achieve a majority vote.
It is majority government or bust for the Conservatives in the coming election. The more the leaders of the Liberal party, the NDP and the Bloc Québécois talk, the more it becomes apparent that they are prepared to form a coalition of losers, in the event the House of Commons returns in something approximating its current form.

Jack Layton has been fairly open. We know where he stands. A coalition would be the NDP's only chance with power.
The NDP leader explicitly endorsed a coalition with the Liberals and the Bloc Québécois in his scrum in the foyer of the House of Commons Wednesday. “I have said I will work to ensure the ideas we campaigned on have the best possible chance of being implemented in Parliament. I will reach out to other parties who are willing to work with us,” he said.
Gilles Dueceppe would will do what is best for Quebec.  If it means getting into bed with the Libs and Dippers, he will do it.  

Roy Green asks the question coalition, yes or no.   He is asking the Liberal leader to fess up.
Answer the question Mr. Ignatieff. In the event of a minority Conservative Party election result might Canadians be treated to a rebirth of the Liberal, NDP, BQ coalition?
An on the record “yes” or “no” would be preferred. “Maybe” would be acceptable.
Instead you chatter about voters having the choice to walk through a “blue door” or “red door.” By the way, did you, did any of your associates take note that not once, but twice the first option you offered in front of national microphones and cameras was the “blue door”? Still having the bus towed to Harper Diesel are we?
Can you imagine Jack Layton, Pat Martin, Thomas Mulcair, Libby Davies, Scotty Brison in cabinet?  Gilles Duceppe as defacto Prime Minister?   Heaven help us! That would be the end of Canada as we know it!  That's exactly what will happen if we don't elect a Conservative Majority folks!
