The Harper candidate from Quadra was interviewed over the weekend by CPAC and was asked whether there were any issues that constituents in Quadra were concerned about, more so than others, as follows:
CPAC reporter: “Is there anything that the [Harper] government has done to hurt you?”
“Welllll.....I think there are a lot of people unhappy about the way the income trusts were treated” Harper Candidate Deborah Meredith
Here were the results of that byelection. And to think, Harper overruled the BoC Board to appoint income trust fraud artist Mark Carney as Governor of the Bank of Canada. Proof of fraud? Read the ways and means motion as a start. Or this account of past misdemeanors.
Meanwhile, here's the number that Mark Carney did on Quadra's byelection results"
Conservative Deborah Meredith 7,283
Liberal Joyce Murray 8,141
Swing factor: 429 voters who would have perhaps otherwise voted Con, but voted Liberal.

As for Mark Carney, perhaps there is an alternative explanation, such as the one offered up by Senior Department of Finance Official, Brian Ernewein, who testified before the Income Trust Public Hearings that on the matter of their alleged tax leakage numbers being highly suspect: "I guess if we were incompetent, we would not admit to it."
