Cape Breton seats in play?

The old saw says they should let Cape Bretoners vote the next day, so we get it right. Until now, there has been a widespread assumption that of the 10 nine Cape Breton seats, only Victoria-The Lakes, held by PC Keith Bain, is in play. Today’s CRA poll gives no reason to challenge that assumption. CRA’s Don Mills says the NDP are merely holding their own on the island, where they currently hold but two seats.

This bears watching. If Cape Bretoners get a sniff of a majority NDP government, things could change quickly.
