An Ipsos Reid poll shows the Conservative government has jumped into an 11 point lead over the Liberals.
This almost puts the Tories into the hallowed territory of Majority Land.
Reactions are predictable: Liberal partisans suggest it's the biased work of Canwest News, which sponsored the poll, while Conservative partisans are already planning the victory parade.
Yet there is something both sides should keep in mind -- opinion polls conducted in the heart of August are virtually meaningless.
Canadians these days are more focused on cottage parties than on political parties.
