It looks like the Conservatives were better at getting the vote out. The national picture doesn't support this at all.

Someone just opened the boxes with the Liberal votes (probably a lot of absentee) and it jumped by 500.

I'm assuming that these were both considered "safe" seats for the Liberals?

Playing silly games looks silly to most Canadians. The Conservatives have proposed nothing of substance since March.

All the parties are playing politics here.  No party has any right to play holier than thou.

I know you donít like any politician, but in this case thatís bullshit. The Conservatives are playing politics at a level well beyond normal. It needs to be called out.

Not true.  The leaders of the NDP and Greens signed it.  So I can see Horgan's point of view that a new leader is a bit of a wild card...

It says they were signing on behalf of their caucuses right above their signatures. It wasnít just an agreement between the two of them.

With everything that's happening in US politics I think we can conclude that it's not a good time for Conservative politicians.

Exactly, it's the only occupation where we expect people to lie, even in writing. And we pay them to do it. Sad.

It's part and parcel of the democratic system we choose wilbur. It's not perfect but it's probably still the best.
But it can work reasonably well in a socially responsible society such as Canada. It can't work and isn't working in a greedy capitalist society such as the US.

Trump? Seriously?
