Could Coderre cross the floor?

You're thinking I mean to the Conservatives, right? Think again. With Coderre possibly on the outs with the Liberal Party this weekend, what if another former prominent Quebec Liberal is able to entice him to make the same switch he did not too long ago... into the open arms of Jack Layton's NDP?

A well connected organizer like Coderre would give Jack that extra credibility he needs in La Belle Province to snag a few more left-leaning seats... and would solidify Mulclair's status as the NDP's next "Leader-in-waiting".

    Wow, you had too much coffee this morning? That's the most interesting piece of fiction that I've read in a long time!

    Still working on my second cup of the day! Wait till you see what I come up with when I'm done with that! ;-)

    Just random speculation... if he gets tossed from the Party he's worked for and loved for over 25 years, who's to say he won't pick the "nuclear" option?

    Yes, the scorched Earth policy.

    A plausible but very unlikely scenario would for him to form a new party with two or three MP's following.

    It would thwart an election grab headlines and embarrass Iggy big time.

    Far-fetched yes but Coderre if nothing else could do it. He must have some loyalists.

    Sure, Coderre could cross the floor to the Dippers,
    as a move in the inevitable uniting of the left in the future coalition of losers.

    I think he's more likely to go to the Bloc than the Dippers.
    Maybe this was his plan all along. This was his chance and he used it by playing the Rosedale card.

    I'd never support Harper again if he ever let Coderre join up with us.

    I think there's a big difference between Coderre and someone like Wajid Khan. Khan was a blatant opportunist who jumped ship the minute Dion became leader, because he thought the winning team would be Harper anyway (he probably thought that even before the Liberals lost government). Coderre although an opportunist also, is also a Liberal with a long history in the party. I would be shocked if someone who spent over 20 years in the party suddenly decided to got to the NDP.

    On McGuire's point, I think I understand. Apparently Harper is the lesser of two evils when compared to Denis Coderre. Shocking.

    Coderre has more in common with the NDP than the Conservatives. Look at his hyeperbole on Canada in Afghanistan and support for terrorist organizations. He's a natural for Jack and the hysterical bombast of the left. Cheers.
