Conservative Win in Canada looming

By Aussiegirl

Looks like an upset may be in the works up in Canada. Stay tuned.

Conservative Win in Canada Could Help Repair Ties to U.S. - New York Times

Unless every national poll here is amiss, what has been perhaps the world's winningest political party is heading toward a humiliating defeat on Monday.

Stephen Harper, 46, an economist and social conservative who is writing a history of ice hockey, appears poised to lead his Conservative Party to victory over the Liberal Party of Prime Minister Paul Martin, something that seemed highly improbable just a few weeks ago. The Liberals won the last four national elections, governing Canada for 13 years - as the party did for three-quarters of the past century.

Sure the conservatives will win, except this is half reform and more over the edge than most Canadians will expect.This ends up with a hard swing over to the left next time.The middle is much more desireable....bad news for liberals and Canada in general.Canada doesn't support much of what harper stands for as far as I can determine.This is a media driven reaction vote with people feeling this is there best option.
