Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion is taking his federal election campaign to his stomping grounds in Montreal to build support in key ridings in a province where the party is struggling.

A poll released Monday suggests the Liberals trailing the Conservatives and the Bloc Québécois in Quebec by a significant margin.

The Segma poll, published in La Presse, reports the Liberals at 17 per cent of the total vote, down from 21 per cent in the 2006 election, with the Bloc Québécois at 35 per cent of the vote, edging out the Conservatives, at 30 per cent.
