Warren Kinsella wants people to name 130 seats where the Liberals can win, in order to get on that stepping stone towards a majority. I have decided to name them below, generally from West to East. Pay attention now.

Phew. That is at least 130 ridings, plus a few more. Where did I get those numbers? I just plugged in our regional numbers from the 2004 election, where we won a minority government (with changes to Quebec for obvious, orange-tinted reasons) into my projection system. This was based off the 2011 numbers too, so the swings are from those numbers, and doesn't even take into account ridings like Victoria or Sudbury, where we traditionally do very well when we are on an upswing.
That was easy. Do I get a prize or anything?
