OTTAWA (NEWS 1130) – If you’ve been calling for change on Parliamant Hill, it appears that’s what you’ll get. New numbers suggest the leader of one major party could even lose his own seat next week!

On the campaign trail, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair is still urging people to vote for a New Democrat government. But the poll aggregator threehundredeight.com shows what may be a tight race in his home riding of Outremont.

The website, which combines several polls and takes into account other factors, is estimating that Mulcair may only have a slim lead, with the Liberal candidate close behind.

Speaking with our Halifax station News 95.7, Mulcair says his numbers tell a different story. “I’m in a very solid position there. Thanks for the concern, but we’re well ahead and we’re doing fine.”

“We’re doing really well in Outremont. I’m in a very solid position there,” he adds.

The website also estimates Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe is in a tight race with the NDP candidate, and as many as 10 Conservative cabinet ministers are at risk, including Associate Minister of Defence Julian Fantino, Finance Minister Joe Oliver and Environment Minister Leona Agglukaq.
