Ooooh, a Canadian election, how exciting. The Conservatives won one, which is a new thing. The Liberals have been in power for the last 12 years. The Liberals had themselves a big kick-back scandal and the thinking is that voters just got tired and wanted somebody new. Don't go thinking that Canada is moving to the right in a big way. Conservatives can only get into power by promising not to back the Iraq war and to never touch the Canadian health care system. So desperate American liberals can still flee to safety.
