It is. Basically the longer your government is the more Senators you appoint - much like the US Supreme Court.
The contributors are instructive. Its going to be an interesting night.
” And just imagine a conservative leader for Canada!”
I worked for the Conservative Party in 2005 when Stephen Harper won. After he won in 06’, I moved to America. Good times..
You got to be effen kidding me!!!!????
From what I understand they have some of the same media issues that we have & conservatives (especially POTUS) are portrayed very negatively.
And the Bloc. Canadas politics do lean left.
Forbids just won a seat!
Lol Meant Tories.
Yes, was it predicted for them?
Yes it looks like a minority government. Curious thing though, a new party has sprung up. The Peoples Party of Canada. (PPC). Maxime Bernier is the leader. Claims the status quo is immoral and corrupt. Not much chance of more than ten seats. I voted for his candidate today.
Likely it will be a minority government. However, more stinky stuff involving Liberal corruption will likely come to light once we are back to business as usual and that will continue to damage Justin personally as well as the Liberal brand.
People here should remember that even when Adscam came gift wrapped to Stephen Harper and the voters back in the early 2000s, enough moderate Liberal voters in the Toronto area still gave Paul Martin governments on a couple of occasions.
Looks like a safe riding so dont read anything into it.
Happens down here every time.
Especially ask the folks in the conservative FL panhandle what they think about it.
“Looks like no party is going to be able to win this thing outright.”
Wait until the western provinces come in.
Looks like a transcription error. Riding now listed as Liberal.
Okay, so he is a Sikh and was the NDP leader and Trudeau didn't seem too uncomfortable, but it made me laugh. Also, the Bloc Quebecois guy was always acting up and getting aggressive, like he didn't realize that nobody in the audience was going to vote for his party.
Liberals up to 3. No Blue wave tonight and theyre strongest in Atlantic Canada.
If. Tories dont sweep ON., itll be a Liberal minority government for sure
Liberals now up to 6.
Liberal is a swear word.
