Outstanding! Maybe the folks to the north got a little tired of that ass Martin. Not wanting to be led by the nose is one thing, being an absolute shmuck to your friends in this world on everything you can is another.

Maybe the course will change a bit up there.

1. rightwing; 123. Leftwing; 103+51+30 = 184.
And the minute Harper pulls his rightwingnut shit -and he will- out the Torries will go. Again. For another decade-plus.

He has a point.

There is some speculation that many of the extreme-lefties abandoned their own candidates, just to keep the conservatives from winning.

Anyway, it's a pretty good bet that the $2.5B national gun registry will now be scrapped.

Yup, but I'm sure the bashing on here will continue nonetheless.

A Canadian! Git 'em, boys!

So who are the Conservatives going to form a coalition with? BQ? Or is BQ too lefty for that?

Well, we may have to go easy on the Frogs for a while, since it appears that Quebec saved your sorry asses tonight...

Looks like a minority Conservative government.

Don't know who they would form a coalition government with though if they half to. The NDPers pissed everyone off, and no one likes the BQ (Bloc Quebecois aka the block heads) .

Harper will have a tough job ahead of him.

BQ is too lefty, they don't even want to swear allegiance to Canada. The NDPers pissed off everyone during the election. If Harper can avoid screwing up, and not let the Liberals sabotage his efforts, his job is to work for a majority government next time.

First Germany, now Canada...wow, this world is turning around.

I think liberalism has taken a huge hit the past couple of years, I bet our libs must be freaking out.

Go Harper! It looks like Canada is free of the Libertard yoke. I do hope that Harper makes good on his promises and makes the Liberals look even more foolish.

While I understand why the conservatives disagree with BQ on most of their domestic agenda, I don't quite understand why the conservatives don't ally with BQ on BQ's sovereignty theme. A seperate Quebec would vastly decrease the Canadian liberal population,possibly even giving the conservative Canadian Shield provinces a majority over Ontario's huge block of liberal moderates. Toss the Quebecois out,and you get a far more conservative Canada.
Reading the Conservative party's platform in Canada is just depressing. They'd be moderate Democrats here in the US.

Not all is rosey in the great north...NPR (National Propaganda Radio) was focusing on BC voting down the "christians" who ran... (BC = Kalifornia north?). I'll wait & see if conservitive government will actualy be able to change the laws of the land...BUT, what a welcome turn! YOU GO CANADA!
