These are all super-safe Liberal seats being discussed anyway.

Most likely New Brunswick.

Leading a party that might actually be able to take power on the provincial level is certainly a step above leading a joke grouping of 2 or 3 people.

So, isn't it a bit odd that Layton and Chow are both MPs?  Clearly they can't have the same "home address" if they're both MPs.

Canada doesn't require one to live in a seat to run for it. I'm not sure if they're even required to live in the province.

Mourani now in the lead in Ahuntsic again. Anyone have any theories as to why she was able to hold on to her vote when every other Bloquiste in Montreal saw their supporters abandon them in droves? Mourani always struck me as a weak candidate when she was campaigning against the Liberals in the past.

That seat is just weird. Still BQ getting 4 seats instead of 3 is kind of disappointing though doesn't mean much longterm.

Jack Layton makes a gaffe as he incorrectly identifies Canada as the greatest country in the world.

Despite this tragic night, that statement is still correct.

I should note that carpetbagging in most non-US countries isn't all that controversial at all, also see George Galloway or Enoch Powell after being kicked out of the UK Tories running in Northern Ireland just because the UUP was the only other real conservative party...

Of course if the US had a parliamentary system it might be the same here.

Why is Abbotsford so hideously right wing? I can see it being right wing but like that, wow.

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?

More like the UK.

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