While nobody was looking (apparently), Canada had a federal parliamentary election on Monday, 2011-05-02 and put a Conservative-majority government (under Prime Minister Stephen Harper) into place. Since this time they have a clear majority of the seats, it will likely be there for a full term (now four years, IIRC). How can we reasonably expect things to go in the land of Red Green?
Any harbinger for us here in the USofA next year?
One item of contention in some Canadian circles was that a number of the local Conservative seats were won with only pluralities of the vote, with two or more left-wing party candidates splitting the vote on their side.
