Harper Woos Immigrants as New Canadians Pulled Toward Incumbent

As Conservative Party candidate Kyle Seeback left Sir William Gage Middle School near Toronto after a campaign event last week, a clutch of black students shouted: “we love you.”

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is counting on the same kind of enthusiasm among voters for Seeback and candidates in nine other districts with immigrant voters who have typically backed the opposition Liberal Party. Victories in those areas tomorrow may give Harper the majority in Parliament that has eluded him for the past five years.
