So, the Conservative party's share of the popular vote rocketed from 36.27% to 37.65, with all other parties and somehow Canada goes from a Conservative minority government to a Conservative majority government? That makes Bush v. Gore look like a triumph of democracy.
Anyway, I think the major lesson from yesterday's Candian election is that choosing an ex-pat as your party leader is a really bad move, something that I don't think applies in many cases. I'm not exactly sure how Michael Ignatieff managed to works is way to the top of the Liberal party, but whoever thought it was a bright idea to let him stay there ought to do themselves a favor quit politics altogether.
