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.

Since this will be a minority government, will Harper have to include members of the BQ in his cabinet? Or does he get to choose his own people?

Great news.

Alberta is the only place where a 28-0 Conservative rout could possibly be a disappointment.

"28-0 ain't a big enough landslide," is what I expect to hear from a friend of mine who lives out in the foothills near Jasper.

Ah, admit it. She's not too bad looking. Just cause she's nuts doesn't mean she's not easy on the eyes.

I wonder what Martin promised her to get her to flip sides.

He'll have to cut deals with the BQ folks.

This isn't a landscape-changing election by any stretch, but it's a start.

Not exactly -- Alberta is too damn conservative to be "Republican." It's the kind of place where someone like Jesse Helms would come across as a flaming, homosexual Marxist.

Probably but I'm not against you. I used to have it in for Quebec as much as Ontario but I see that Quebecers at least have more brains and know what to do with outright CORRUPTION.

Figured as much. Thanks for the info. And you're right - Canada has to start somewhere and kicking Martin's tail up between his shoulder blades is an excellent start.
