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?

So in summary:
Tories: The Tories accomplished something tonight. How on earth did they get to this majority? Was it only because of the NDP surge splitting the vote or was it because of something else? How will they govern? Harper has never seemed to be one of the shining leaders of Canada, but he may now have a dynasty that could continue for a total of 9 years of power. Will he be considered one of the great leaders of Canada, and how will he do that?

Liberals: Fail. The liberals have been limited dramatically to a few seats in the West, a spattering of seats in urban Ontario and Montreal, and Atlantic Canada, (in fact Atlantic Canada is now the largest caucus!). How did this happen? What will the Liberals do now? Merger, disband, continue? Who will lead the liberals now? What message will they cling to? Who will they reach out to?

NDP: Wow, but with so many caveats. To have this party that has traditionally represented left-wing English Canada, to now be largely represented by Francophones is a huge shift. What will this do to this party? Where will the NDP go from here? What will the NDP do as opposition? In the next four years will the NDP continue to lead as opposition and possibly aim for the top post at the next election?

BQ: Another fail. Where does the bloc go from here? Does separatism still matter? Who will lead this party? Will members resign or join another party? What now? How on earth did they collapse so much?

Greens: Wow. She finally won a seat. Is she irrelevant? How can May make the most out of this in the next four years? Will the Greens win more seats in the future? How can the Greens turn this around for their benefit?

Quebec: What happened? Is separatism dead or is it still an issue? How will Quebecers react to this new NDP in control?

What an amazing night! I'm not particularly thrilled by the ultimate result, but it sure has been fascinating.
