London's most upscale/conservative riding--PC minister Tom Hockin once held it--and Barnes is the only London Grit without majority mandates in either '93 or '97. And CA'll be spurred by the support of the local MPP, PC right-winger Bob Wood. It's still a bit of a long shot, but it's the one in London to watch...

Politically it is well known that London is a very conservative city - both fiscally and socially. All London ridings except the south tip which lies in a different riding went PC provincially. If you are from London then you would also well aware of the fact that municipally Londoners have welcomed social conservatism in both of the previous elections. The expressed views of Mayor Dianne Haskett and that of CA Leader Stockwell day are strikingly similar. They have even had similar experiences in dealing with accusations from certain groups, and in Mayor Haskett's case this actually polarized the city and ended up giving her a landslide victory a few years back. Of all the ridings in this city, London West and London North Center have the most probability of leaving the Liberal tally, (though West more than North-Centre because Joe Fontata is generally popular) but once again this depends a lot of gains made by the right during the campaign. This is another interesting riding to watch. I make no prediction at this time.

Easy Liberal repeat. Sue has done enough local work to hold those who care about local stuff. The Chretien-Martin agenda is conservative enough for London to keep supporting it. And Bob Wood has coattails like Brian Muroney in 1993. This guy FELL ASLEEP during a committee meeting and the government lost a vote. He held his own seat by less than 100 votes. Fugetaboudit.
