The Cons may have 143 seats
but the Coalition represents a portending 44.44% of the popular vote, and if even one Green was appointed to Cabinet most Greens will believe the Coalition represents 51.22% of the electorate if not of parliamentary seats. The House would have to be kept out of the hands of the Tories with the help of the Bloc who represent 9.98% of the Canadian electorate and 49 seats, so that the coalition, supported by the Bloc and with one Green would represent over 61.2% of the electorate and have the majority support of 155 parliamentarians. Without an appointed Green, but with the support of the Bloc they would still represent 54.42% of the electorate and still have more than 60% of the goodwill of the nation. The Coalition could be further strengthened with a progressive Conservative Cabinet member or two to represent voters in the centre right.
