    in the person of Stephen Harper, is scary. I liked it when relations between Washington and Ottawa were tepid. How could this happen to the most polite people on the planet?

    •  Liberal Party corruption (4+ / 0-)

      That's what did it. They had to be voted out and sent to the corner with a dunce cap on for a bit of a time out. Harper would have been the only really viable alternative on a national scale, and we made sure to only give him a short leash (i.e. minority government).

      What would be truly scary is if he gets a majority government the next time around.

      Unfortunately for the Liberals they are a quite broken down party at the moment. They are not particularly strongly united and the AdScam scandal will not be soon forgotten or forgiven, particularly in Quebec. The Conservatives also currently have a 'war chest' twice the size of the Liberals.

      While I more naturally lean towards the NDP and Greens then do not stand a real chance of forming a government anytime soon.

      So, unless or until the Liberals reinvent themselves and are far enough removed from the previous corruption the best we can hope for is minority governments, likely Conservative.

      If they move away from pen and paper ballots up here then we'll know the fix is in.
