Harper lost 4 cabinet members tonight.  All from Quebec.  The NDP surge there ended up hurting the Conservatives, and that's the one dark spot in an otherwise great night for the Conservatives.

Gary Lunn, Minister for Sports also lost in Saanich-Gulf Islands.

Separatism is still an issue, but it will be fought on the provincial scene from now, I think.

The BQ experiment failed, finally.

These  results in LaSalle-Emard are considered validated!
So did Marx-Leninist won a seat? (Its the NDP-Marx had there votes traded)


I suppose than, if there is a legal problem, they will ask to the NDP candidate to ask a recount.

A final story that has been missed is how the Tories could, at least in theory, pursue a F%$K Quebec strategy if they wanted to.

Well, there is a problem in that story.

Bloc collapse doesn't mean the death of the Quebec nationalism.
Moreover, the forces will stop being split on fighting on two levels at the same time.
That could allow them to focus on the provincial scene.

And if Harper decided to screw Quebec, a referendum could pass, I think.
Recent polls give a 42-58 result, but, in case of that strategy, that could move.

Harper is very smart. He doesn't want to be remembered as the Prime Minister which was in power when Quebec left.

According to Radio-Canada, the NDP won the recount in Montmagny--L'Islet--Kamouraska--Rivière-du-Loup by 9 votes.

It was won by 105 votes by the Conservatives on election day (but 110 NDP votes were wrongfully added to the Greens). After that correction, NDP lead by 5, leading to a recount.

Also, a elector asked a recount in Winnipeg-North.

Lamoureux, a Liberal, won it by only 45 votes over the NDP.

Believe it or not, some of the Quebec Tory MPs of the 80s were quite left wing. Look at current BQ MP Louis Plamondon who got his start with the Tories of the 80s.

No. I don't think so.
Louis Plamondon is on the right-wing of the BQ, I think.

As the former right-wing Bloc MPs, I can cite Pierre Brien, MP for Témiscamingue for 1993 to 2003, when he resigned to run for the ADQ in Rouyn-Noranda--Témiscamingue, before leaving in 2008, because he thought than ADQ was a dead end.

He was hired as a special councillor to Christian Paradis, the "leader" of Quebec CPC in 2009, and resigned after three months.

He returned to BQ and PQ after that and recently wrote in the newspapers than the only solution, no matter if we are on the left or on the right is BQ/PQ, because Ontario is ruling all Canada, in short.

Well, the OVR are out... just  not online.  We had a meeting today, and the NDP candidate in Ottawa South showed me the poll by poll results, and we won 3 polls and tied 2 others! Cheesy (that's big news for that riding)

Any idea when they will be online.  I went to do the county by county results as well as municipality by municipality as I did for the 2008 election

Usually, it is 90 days after the election, on Internet. Numbers are already avaliable for the candidates and the media.

And according to Wikipedia, Miller left NDP in 2007.

It is fair to say that for most of the past 5 years - the Liberals as opposition tended to be in the high-20s. The NDP seems to be in the low 30s now - and that is when the Tories may still be enjoying a bit of a honeymoon - what happens when they bring in their first really draconian budget next year?

Either the Liberals have a revival, or NDP takes the lead, depending of events durng the honeymoon, I suppose.

If nothing change, I think than the NDP takes the lead, for now. Liberals seems to be on a bad way with their very long interim.

Wow at the Liberal map.

They are pretty much dead outside of Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, PEI and Newfoundland.
The slope to come back will be very rough.

The NDP map is the inverse of the Liberal map, too.

Funny facts about MPs names:

There is 4 "Morin" (all NDPers, from Quebec)
3 "Moore" (one NDP, two Conservatives)
3 "Brown" (all Conservatives)
3 "Harris" (one NDP, two Conservatives)
3 "Duncan" (one NDP, one Conservative, one Liberal)

There is 2 "Davies", both NDPers from Vancouver (East and Kingsway).

Aren't there two Harris for the NDP and one for Conservatives?  Also there is a McKay in the Liberals and MacKay in Conservatives.  I think McKay is the Irish spelling and while MacKay is the Scottish if I am not mistaken.  Also two with the surname Weston both from the Conservatives. 

True for "Harris". I didn't listed all times two names are the same, it happens quite often.

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).

I think it perhaps has more to do with the catastrophic French of May.
And I suppose than voters which could have leaned Green are exactly the kind of voters which started the NDP surge.

Quebec is very easy to spot on NDP map.

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.

Good news, Harper isn't cute.

Wow, the riding is small. I would be surprised if there was more than 100 precincts.
And Ignatieff got badly defeated, according to the map.

Polarised. Gore and Malton voted NDP, Bramalea voted Conservative.

The seat is way over populated, too, so I suppose than one of the three will be removed before next election.

I knew than Yvon Godin is very popular in his riding, but not to that point.

He got 88% in a few precincts.

NDP got very good results in all Coastal Northern New Brunswick, too.
