You’re definition of “winning Quebec” is rather odd.  The Cons (Harper) won 5 seats in Quebec when they last got a majority government. 

You should take more of a dive into the numbers…. I love numbers….  They don’t lie.  My takeaway is that the NDP did so well that they siphoned away Liberal seats allowing the Cons (Harper) to win a majority of seats due to the vote splitting.

I don’t think you can look at that election and come away with the conclusion that it was because Harper was “broadly electable”.

Your claim is that Harper was only marginally more popular than this losing lot. I'm claiming that Harper was more electable in the areas that mattered.

Harper did well in Suburban Toronto. This is where I live, so I may think highly of my demographic, but the "905" is the ultimately bell weather region.

This gives Brown a distinct advantage in a National election being a politician who currently represents part of this region.
