Hard for me to do the math.  10 Eastern, which is 3 London Time and 4 Central European Time, I think.

Better question... rather than specific time zones, in how many minutes/hours will we start to see confirmed results?

49 minutes.

"Jfd888" on Twitter said that "Exit polls show NDP gains in the Toronto suburbs failed to materialize. Big CON Margins."

Saw it on CBC. The account is now terminated.

Uh... were big CON margins in the Toronto suburbs ever in doubt?

Yeah, I have a hard time believing that. NDP won Acadie in NB with nearly 60% last time.

These Tories seat counts are getting scary. Especially because the Prairies are still out...

So what makes Kenora so different from all the rural NDP provinces surrounding it?

So now the Liberal Party is gone and Stephen Harper has a majority all because of a self-inflicted wound. Way to go Michael Ignatieff. You are the biggest loser in Canadian political history.

At least with his seat lost he'll have no excuse not to move back to the United States ASAP.

As a leftist, the demise of the Liberals and Bloc should be good news.

In the long-run, hopefully. In the short-term, as a leftist, I'm worried about what unrestricted Tory government will do to the Canadian social safety net.

Liberals below 20% now, while the NDP are inching up and the Tories are about to fall below 40%.

NDP is at 32% in Saskatchewan with 0 seats. Liberals are at 9% with 1 seat. FPTP is gross.

So it looks to me, assuming the polls were correct, right-wing Liberals jumped ship at the last minute and voted Tory. Left-wing Liberals did not.
