Langley/Abbotsford is basically the Canadian Colorado Springs - Focus on the Family Canada is based in Langley, and Abbotsford has the highest % answering just "Christian" on the census, basically a proxy for Evangelicals.

Plot twist!

Voter turnout still decreased this election. This time, it would be more immigrants not voting than general inactivity, though I think Albertans cared little either. At least my skepticism over high advanced voter turnout was justified.

Not quite - turnout is calculated from counted votes versus the number of eligible voters, even if not all the votes have been counted yet. It's currently at 57% but with a few thousand polling stations still to come I expect it will pass 60%. A rise, but a small one - certainly not the big increase a lot were predicting.

Thanks; CBC is predicting 61% turnout now.


Also realized Conservatives have a seat in every province right now. Couldn't cringe a little when Mansbridge said they were "The true national party".

Since the NDP put a lot of female candidates in Quebec to fulfill a gender quota, their landslide in Quebec means they have greatly changed the balance of the sexes in parliament; ~38% of their caucus, in fact.

anybody see Canada turning into France where the left remains split and is dominated by a leftist/socialist party that cannot seem to win nationally, but cannot move toward the center, while the center-right governs for an eternity?

The Bloc was slaughtered down to 3 or 4 MPs.  The Tories will have a majority, and the NDP will get just over 100 MPs.  The Liberals took a hit, and while Ignatieff hasn't mentioned it, others in the Liberal Party seem to be open to a merger with the NDP.  Ignatieff stressed the importance of remaining a centre party during his speech.  Elizabeth May won her election, making her the first Green MP to be elected.

Harper should be praising Layton.  It's because of Layton and the NDP that the Tories won tonight.

There were a lot of ridings where the NDP and the Liberals split the vote allowing the Conservatives to win.  I guess you could blame Ignatieff, but either way, without both an NDP and a Liberal party, the Conservatives wouldn't have reached a majority.

The Parkdale-High Park rematch wasn't even close. Neither was Davenport.

To conclude the night, remarks against Harper:

-Now that Harper has a four-year mandate, he will be the longest serving PM under the Conservative label since John A. McDonald.
-Always irritated when Conservative spin refers to Harper as "Prime Minister Stephen Harper" or "Rt. Honorable Stephen Harper". If they were as reformist as they claim, they would botch the honorific system altogether.
-"Strong Stable National Conservative Majority Government" should be the Party's slogan in 2015.
-Harper thanked Conservative supporters "for their prayers".
-Surely he must stand up for "all regions", considering he will either lose the stranglehold on Alberta and Ontario if he prefers one too much.
-"Comprehensive measures to make our streets safer"? How comprehensive?
-Harper paid lip service to all politicians except for Ignatieff.
-For all his compliments of Canada, he never mentioned that the nation could be a "leader".


anybody see Canada turning into France where the left remains split and is dominated by a leftist/socialist party that cannot seem to win nationally, but cannot move toward the center, while the center-right governs for an eternity?

Of course. I'm terrified.

EDIT: Well, not "move toward the center" as instead "shoot itself in the foot".

RE: the NDP not moving to the centre... um... that's exactly what they've done under Layton so far. Despite his background. It's worked as well.

Almost as eye-catching as Quebec.

Are elections for the Toronto City Council partisan and if so what is the current composition?

Amusing: Westmount-Ville-Marie may yet hold for the Liberals. This was the NDP's second best seat in Montreal last time, but this isn't maybe so surprising, given that they mostly surged with pure laine voters and Westmount itself is very... you know. Not that.

Nonpartisan, but everyone knows the general leaning of the candidates.

Newton-North Delta has all 213 polls reporting, but CBC has not called it.

The NDP leads 15,413 to the Libs at 14,510, and the Conservatives at 14,434.
