A couple of Conservatives say they almost felt sorry for Ignatieff, who led the Liberals to the worst showing ever
“The Conservatives won 166 seats, a comfortable majority of 11 seats, and secured about 40% of the popular vote.
Monday was a historic win for the Tories. Harper is only the third Conservative Leader since Confederation to win three successive governments. John Diefenbaker did it in the late 50s and in 1962 and Sir John A. MacDonald won four in the 1880s.
Harpers majority is the first Conservative one since Brian Mulroneys in 1988”
Thanks for posting. With the Trump issue and then the Bin Laden story, this very important (and positive) development has been largely missed.
Thanks for posting this news!
But...but...what about Harper’s birth certificate? Has he released his birth certificate?
Oops, wrong country. :)
The fly in the ointment is that the party that made the biggest gains is the NDP, a full-throated socialist party that is further left than the liberals. This would appear to point to greater polarization in Canadian political life.
Bloc Quebecois also continued its downward slide, with most of their lost votes going to the NDP.
NDP+Liberal+Bloc Quebecois+Greens = about 56% of the vote. That part is not so good.

That’s great. I was only paying half attention to this, but I heard last week that the libs were surging. Glad to hear it didn’t pan out.
Good news. At least maybe we can still buy oil from them since we can’t get our own.
