Conservatives win big in Canada
Well, as I said yesterday, Michael Moore's influence is not as big as his head. Canada has gone to the right. They elected a pro-life, pro-business, pro-privatization, capitalist, with a foriegn policy more in-lined with Dubya than Chirac.
Canadian Television has more:
Canadians awarded Conservative Leader Stephen Harper with a minority government Monday, putting an end to more than 12 years of Liberal rule.
With 94 per cent of the vote counted nationally, the Conservatives were at 36 per cent support, compared with 30 for the Liberals, 17 for the NDP, 11 for the Bloc, and four for the Green party.
It's not all good news for conservatives though. Because the conservatives won a minority, they will have to form a collition to hold on to power. With a broad long-lasting collition unlikely, a new election may be called within a couple of years.
This is a small victory for our conservative friends to the north. What is more important is that Moore backed the wrong horse again.
