Liberals dominate Ontario, the North, and the Atlantic
The Atlantic provinces may have more Liberal MPs, but provincially they all have conservative (PC) governments.

A few weeks ago a story broke about a huge oil discovery in the Yukon and Northwest Territories, and how the Canadian government is in the process of negotiating agreements with various Indian (and one Inuit) nations to construct a massive pipeline through their land.

If this can be done quickly, we can finally give the Arabs the bird and get out of the Middle East - but then again, this may lead to an even more strident pro-Israel policy if we no longer have to worry about buying Middle Eastern oil.

Look for the American and Canadian Left to fight any move to get to that oil - TOOTH AND NAIL, using any tactics they feel to be necessary to nip any and all such plans in the bud. And if that don't work, they'll encourage Canada to place a permanent oil embargo on the US.

And now we're going to make Canadian citizens show passports before they can enter the U.S. - which isn't exactly going to go over big in Ottawa.

The neocons are dumb - supremely dumb.

Is this pattern found mainly in urban areas, like Toronto, or is it widespread across much of Canada?

"Francis Devandra Raj, Timothy Woo, Jonathan Valenzuela" - sounds like a properly multicultural criminal gang. They probably had a grant from some level of government or other.

If Denmark turns to the rest of the EU for support in this matter, might their doing so eventually force Canada to renew the alliance with us?

Actually, we're OK on this. Our government has just announced that we'll be placing cameras around our shores. That should scare them off.

(I wish to god I was joking about this.)

It looks like Harper will take the Prime Ministership and the Conservatives will hold a sizeable minority.

From the banter about the Canadian elections I've been seeing over the net, many appear to bemoan this as a lousy result and a return to the dark ages.
Right-Wing liberal, slow progressive, and other contradictions straddling both the past and future, but out of touch with the present . . .

The only reason liberal Canada wasn't especially fond of the idea of dissolving the country, or at least radically devolving power to provinces and localities was because they were still in power. That may change now.

Does the United States now "pick up the pieces" - as in Patrick Buchanan's late-'80s dream of the four Atlantic Provinces applying for admission to the U.S. as American states?
But maybe if the putative Robin Hoods stopped trying to take from law-abiding citizens and give to criminals, take from men and give to women, take from believers and give to anti-believers, take from citizens and give to "undocumented" immigrants, and take from heterosexuals and give to homosexuals, they might have a lot more success in taking from the rich and giving to everyone else.

Don't blame me - I'm a Baby Buster!

Global Warming allows the Northwest Passage

The US and Canada, together with Denmark, Norway and Russia, have competing claims on parts of the Arctic and the economic bounty they may yield, including trade routes, fishing rights, and oil and gas.

Canada may in a forthturning with the demise of the corrupt Liberal party after 12 years in power as even though Harper only has a minority government. The question now is what vision for Canada does he have and will Canadians embrace his plans....
