Manitoba Election Polls?

Canadians have been bombarded with dozens of election polls this year in anticipation of a federal election. But that's not the case in Manitoba. Not a single public opinion poll has been published throughout the election campaign in that province. The last poll, completed by Probe Research, was conducted back in March and had the NDP and Tories tied at 40% each. Surely, the media will release at least one poll before the May 22 vote.

I am puzzled but not surprised. I read a can press article about a radio debate among the 3 leaders, and if I didn't know who is in power, one would have sworn that the con was in power, as most of the quotes were given to him.
No polls, but I would suspect that the NDP is going to get win with a majority again, and the poll guys don't want the public to know.
If it was leaning the other way, they would release it, that way acting as a push poll, and swaying more people.

It's not exactly what you asked for, but it's something.
