Everyone has already said most things I was going to say about the election, so just a short post to fill in the few things I still think are worth mentioning.
With the votes falling the way they did, I predict another election within 16 months. And I hope Chuck Cadman doesn’t flip back to the conservative party. He claims he’s going to let his constituents decide whether he should officially re-join the party, or remain an independent. I hope his riding realizes that he can have just as much, if not more of an impact by remaining independent, and voting as he sees fit, rather than toeing a party line.
I’m quite pleased with the way things turned out over all though. Although I think it would have been nice to see a couple more NDP seats over the Conservatives, it will make the coming months interesting, if nothing else.
I don’t typically post anything too political on here – but I’ll make the same mention a lot of my fellow bloggers are making: if you didn’t vote, you can’t complain. Though honestly, I’ve got a fairly enlightened group of friends, and they all voted, and I just don’t usually converse with people outside that circle with any amount of seriousness about these issues.
