Tories on cusp of Majority

The Tories have dropped a few seats since the last projection. This now puts them at 154, which is right on the borderline of a majority. The opposition would have a total of 154 seat in this instance, leaving the two sides tied. Considering that both Independents lean to the right, this would give the Conservative and effective majority, but not a solid one.

Who is on my list?

In order to keep this site up to date, I need to look at information from many sources. The two most well known websites I visit are Democratic Space run by Greg Morrow, and Election Prediction run by a team headed by Milton Chan. I've mentioned both of these before, but where else do I look for information? I often find myself going to a specific wikipedia page to find out the most recent polls. I also check out Polling Report and NoDice for the same reasons. I also check out LISPOP and the Paulitics blog as well as the election website for our two major media networks, the CBC and CTV Finally I use the UBC election forecaster to project all results.
