Conservative Leader Stephen Harper will become Canada's next prime minister, as Canadians have elected a Tory minority government and ended a 12-year reign of Liberal rule.
Nationwide, the Tories are currently leading or elected in 122 ridings, the Liberals in 104, the Bloc in 50 and 30 for the NDP.
The Tories appeared to make significant gains in Ontario and Quebec, leading or elected in at least two dozen seats in Central Canada.
The NDP also made major gains, up 11 from the 2004 vote.
In Quebec, where they were shut out in 2004, the Tories made major inroads, leading or elected in 10 ridings, eight from the Bloc and two from the Liberals.
Is there any doubt that without Captain Ed breaking the idiotic publishing ban regarding the Adscam scandal in Canada that Paul Martin wouldn't be crying tonight?
So, let's see... the right-side of the blogosphere has taken down one of the legendary broadcasters in the MSM and helped nudge the Liberal government in Canada out of power.... and the left-side of the blogosphere? All they have is a bunch of papier-mache Bush & Cheney dolls... and John Kerry posting on DailyKos and Howard Dean & OBL stealing their talking points. How pathetic...
And while the Left cheered at the election of a "Leftist" (who is better described as a drug kingpin), asking "Can we finally call it a trend?" - there's no word from them on the "trend" up north.
