Canadian General Election, Live Thread (UPDATE: Conservatives Win!)
Elections Canada ^ | N/A

Posted on 01/23/2006 8:03:44 AM PST by GreenLanternCorps

If JimRob, etc. approve this is the Live Thread for the Canadian General Election, on January 23rd, 2005.

We have a while to go before the returns start coming in, but I thought the thread needed to get up and running.

As a former Canadian, now U.S. citizen many years, you have my attention. Conservatives need to win big ... good luck.

Are results usually known for Canadian Parlimentary elections the same day?

Any exit polls?  Any conducted in a manner that heavily skews towards women and urban areas?  'Cause that's the only accurate way to judge the will of the people (Damn that DIEBOLD!!!)

Thanks me too. I'd love to see the look on Michael Moore's face when Canada becomes a "Red State".

Harper, the Conservative, is poised for a win. :)

Does anyone in the States know if C-SPAN will have any coverage? I know they have covered Canadian elections before, and this is such an important one, that I hope they'll do something.

My cable provider offers an international news channel, so I'll check that too.

I answered my own question -- at C-SPAN's website, they will have live coverage on C-SPAN 1 at 9:30 Eastern.

Thanks for the thread.

For anyone else who, like me, was curious, from this link:

The term Grit comes from the phrase Clear Grit. Clear grit was a prime type of sand used by the Scots in Upper Canada to make mortar, and the term was adopted as a description of the type of character required for members of the pre-Confederation reform movement in the Province of Canada. After Confederation, the term Grits was applied to Liberals and the Liberal Party, and has stuck.

If the Conservatives win will the US liberals who moved north go to Greenland next?

Yes, we should know by the end of the night. It will be a long night though as the country spans 5&1/2 hrs worth of time zones.
