…and we can’t say we’re not pleased with the results.
We will have more indepth commentary this evening, but for now we can say that seat wise, this is probably one of the best senarios we were hoping for:
– a small Conservative minority = change in government.
– a large Liberal official opposition = time for the Liberals to rejuvenate themselves and get some perspective outside of governing.
– a larger NDP caucus = more seats, but could also equal less influence in the House of Commons is now divided.
– a smaller Bloc caucus = from what we hear, the Bloc dropped in popular support as well. This is good (though we’re surprised the Tories picked up 10 seats in Quebec. wow).
We should have more time this evening to write up a summary of our thoughts. See you then.
