#rsrh Conservatives win majority in Canada.

Apparently Canada has this thing where you don’t actually get told how many seats flipped nationwide, but the word is that current Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party of Canada will have an outright majority, which is not something that can be counted on in parliamentary proceedings.

Entertainingly, this election came about because the opposition parties forced a no-confidence vote.  Oops?

PS: Yes, I know that ‘Conservative’ in Canada means something a bit different up there than it does down here.  Still a neighbor and a major trading partner, eh?  Worth reporting on, and all that.

    Yay! Michael Ignatieff defeated in his home district after trying so hard to be the next Canuck PM…! Couldn’t be sweeter than that. MI used to pollute the environment on the professional left down here in God’s country, then went North and found out that in his personal case, that meant SOUTH!

    The Conservative Party of Canada is what Republicans can be if ObamaCare is allowed to go forward.

    Funniest part is TPM was predicting a Socialist Party majority just last week.

    Well, the opposition party that forced the election was the NDP, and they won huge, so it actually was a good strategy for them.

    The Liberals, though, should have propted up Harper when they had the chance, but hubris is one of those things that is hard to shake.

    Harper won big which makes me happy, but I do feel odd knowing how many people in my country will vote for a communist (the NDP).
