No Big Surprises: Vote on Afghanistan Mission

It's no great surprise that of the Liberal Leadership Candidates, Michael Ignatieff and Scott Brison voted in favour of extending the mission. The vote should hurt Ignatieff in Quebec, where among his caucus supporters on;y one - Raymonde Folco - voted in favour.

The Afghanistan issue is sure to chip away at the Conservatives fragile support in Quebec, as this mission will surely become as unpopular here as the Iraq war was and still is. Brison never had much of a chance in Quebec anyway, but what will this do to Ignatieff?

Prediction: Ignatieff will plummet like a stone and it will be between Dion and Dryden in Quebec.
