I am blown away by the Canadian Federal Election results which were as follows:

Conservatives 167 seats
New Democratic Party 102
Liberals 34
Bloc Quebecois 4
Greens 1

No one would have predicted these results when the election campaign started five weeks ago.

I am happy to see that the Conservatives have finally gotten a majority.  Preston Manning would be proud to see old Reformer Steven Harper as Prime Minister.

I am stunned by the NDP's incredible showing.

Ha ha to the Liberals!  The party of Trudeau had a schmuck for a leader this election.  Iggy didn't even win his seat.

And as for the Bloc Quebecois, this joke of a party, a party dedicated to breakup of Canada, deserve a fate similar to that of Bin Laden -- extinction, though not physical but electoral.

In the next four years, I expect a few Wisconsin's happening -- Harper going to be demonized in the way that Mulroney was when he was prime minister.  The Left in Canada has shifted far leftwards.
