“There is no doubt, if given the opportunity, Michael Ignatieff will form a coalition with the NDP and the Bloc Quebecois,” Soudas said in an e-mail.

New Democrat leader Jack Layton said he would not rule out forming a coalition with Ignatieff.

“We’re not closing the door to any possibility there,” Layton said.

Layton also said they would target Harper in the campaign.
