OTTAWA, Oct 17 (Reuters) A key official in Canada's opposition Liberals signaled the party would keep the minority Conservative government in power in a series of confidence tests over the coming days.

The official said there was nothing in the government's policy speech, delivered yesterday, that would prevent the Liberals from supporting it. The Liberals have enough votes to keep the Conservatives, elected in January 2006, in power.

''There's no poison pill in that speech at all,'' the official said. ''I can see something that I think caucus would support.'' REUTERS CS BST0527
