The conservatives would still win the vast majority of Alberta and Saskatchewan's seats even if the candidate was a literal flaming bag of garbage. Like actually. They don't need to worry about pissing off the base here. People here don't give a fuck about putting actual thought into their ballot.

This election seems to be won by the shy liberal vote in Ontario. Seems a lot of them toyed with the idea of voting NDP but when push came to shove they went Liberal to keep the Tories out.

But if CPC implicitly requires that their leader come from Western Canada, yea it's a lost cause.

True but at the same time they might go stupid and create reform party 2.0 which means another decade in opposition

And now the Liberals with the NDP owe nothing to the prairie provinces.

Oh absolutely. I believe Rona Ambrose was mentioned here recently, she would have been a great choice for leader. I'm not sure where she's from, but she was likeable and wasn't an overly partisan hack like most of the rest of them are on the hill.

I would laugh my damn ass off for days if that happened. They'd have to change the provincial motto to "Shooting ourselves in the foot since 1905 "






In other news.... the Greens may have just took Winnipeg Centre... woah.

Voted Conservative, was hoping for a weak Conservative minority government and a new Liberal leader that I could support in a few years. Too bad.

Well now thats all said and done there are definite party winner and losers.

The 2 biggest winners are the Bloc and the Greens. The Bloc tripled their seat count and the Greens have elected more MPs than ever before but probably most importantly, they got Fredricton. They can no longer be viewed as just a bunch of granola eaters on Vancouver Island but a real party with a strong national base.

For the NDP and Liberals it was a mixed blessing. The NDP lost more seats but conversely have a lot more power in Ottawa by having the balance of power. The Liberals lost their majority which is bad news but they got a much more significant win over the Conservatives than almost anyone thought they would. They can also govern with the help of just one party instead of two and it won't have to be with the Bloc. Also, by the Liberals winning by 35 seats and not the razor thin edge many had predicted, any party trying to pull down the government too early will face voter wrath at the next election.

The big loser tonight was the Tories and Sheer. After SNC & blackface, the Tories could have had this election and at least made it a much closer call but they didn't. Not only was Sheer's performance mediocre at best but he and the Tories seem bound and determined to play to their Western base.

I dont get it. Why such a herd mentality in Alberta/Sask? Do Conservative values run that deep and wide?

There are other alternative parties even if they have such a hate on for the Liberals.

I have no idea, I was born and raised in Ontario. Though conservative values/herd mentality run extremely deep in most of that place too, it is worse here. At only 28, I've voted for three different parties throughout my voteable elections... so I just can't understand that mentality.



Also, my post earlier about Winnipeg Centre looks like it was a polling error. That would have been so cool though.

Disappointed to see Jody Wilson-Raybould running a close third in my riding, with the Tories now possibly taking the seat!

It's the exact other way around: now that JT is damaged goods, the Tories will be the ones getting a higher quality leader for when the minority govt will fall.

Big plus for the Liberals not having to deal with the Bloc.

Kenora is at 31-31-31 % at the moment. One example where the NDP surge actually may defeat the Liberals, one way or another.

Kind of have to see how it turns out ... there are a lot of close seats and he does seem to have won the popular vote. It's not great but is it really immediate-resignation-worthy if he gets up around 130 seats and 35%?

Aside from the particular parties themselves, there are also some clear winners and losers. There are 2 clear winners and one clear loser:

1} Canadians in general are the biggest winner. The Liberals got the wrapping on the knuckles that they deserved after SNC and the FPTP and now will have to govern in more balanced manner with the NDP. Minority governments are always the most proactive, reasonable, least ideologically driven.

2 } Second big winner.......the environment. It is clear that the environment played a big role on how people voted and it is also clear that any party from this election onwards must have a comphrehensive environmental and climate change policy if they hope to govern. The days of writing their environmental policy on the back of a napkin 20 minutes before the press release like the Tories did, are over.

3} The big loser.........Alberta. This is just about as bad as it gets for Albertans. They now don't have a single person representing them at the Cabinet table or even at caucus. Alberta's energy sector economy will now be completely determined by Toronto and Montreal politicians and Ottawa bureaucrats. Trudeau went to bat for TMX and has absolutely nothing to show for it and with the NDP dead set against it, he will not expend any more political capitol on it and certainly never risk his government. Alberta, the nation's 4th most populace province with the 3rd largest economy and a huge net contributor to equalization is now completely politically impotent.

Now Alberta really wants out. For once I'm gonna drop the word "probably" from my sentence.
