Somewhat shocked by the results in Ottawa-Orleans:

Galipeau (Purgs) 44.5% (-0.4)
Bertschi (Lib) 38.5% (-0.3)
Cenatus (NDP) 14.1% (+4.2)
Maillet (Grn) 2.9% (-3.4%)

A testament of our strong campaign and our excellent candidate, a terrible useless MP (who I saw yesterday. He looks like an angry old man who can't even be bothered to be polite to poll workers). But taken out by the NDP surge for a useless 20some Haitian student.

Try to find EKOS' last poll, which had a breakdown of 2nd prefs in it.

random factoid: the Tory vote dropped (in most cases marginally or very marginally) in all Ottawa ridings.

John Baird as Foreign Minister. What a joke.

I don't see how that's worrying; there are a lot of total morons in cabinet.

I was considering writing something like "actually intellectually challenged as opposed to just disliked on partisan grounds", but that would be long and you'd still probably think there were some.
Indeed I do.

The Purgs were underestimated in 2008, so there's also a definite 'shy Tory' or something element in there.

Interesting that none of the above ridings are in Quebec. There's the perception that the Green Party is one of upper-middle-class WASPs who can afford to eat organic and buy fair trade (but then again that's true with all Green Parties).

The Greeens already did awfully in Quebec in 2008. Most of their weak support is concentrated in the West Island.

Also, the Greenies are pretty much an overwhelmingly English party.

Quebec is quite European, actually in their democracy. OK, they use FPTP, but... look at their election signs. Totally different than the rest of Canada. It's all about the leader. There was probably more outrage about Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the rest of Canada than in Quebec. In fact, she's quite popular in  her riding.

No insult to the people of my native region of Lanaudiere, but the people there are often quite shallow. They fall in love with shallow people so easily, especially if they're hot and cute.
