I would be a lot happier if the NDP and Liberal seats were switched. I’m glad for the majority so we can finally have an effective government.. I would not be happy if I had to go to the polls again in another year. With that said I really hope the Liberals bounce back from this next election.

And I’m glad it looks like the end of the Bloc.

I’m excited that NDP moved up further than most expected and I wonder how well they will come through now that they are the major opposition. I was surprised by the number of Liberal seats and all I have to say about the Conservatives is blahh (sorry I’m not really interested).

I’m speechless and still trying to figure out what to think of these results. I’m very excited about the NDP’s results, but I think I would have preferred another minority government than a conservative majority.

LOL @MissShork: for the political eye candy…Here’s for you!

I’m so happy the Conservatives finally got their majority. It makes me miss home! 

I have to say we’ve had some pretty wild Parliaments lately and by the looks of things, that won’t be changing anytime soon. At this point, I can’t begin to imagine the dynamics of the Commons for the 41st. I just can’t believe an NDP Opposition.

Political leanings aside, it was pretty interesting to see some of the lost seats, definitely lost some notable figures.

Horray for Jack being official opposition, and a super big happy face for Elizabeth May.  This is a historic election for both of these reasons. 

I am very concerned about things going backwards with the Conservatives having a majority.  My first act of protest is to write “bring back the long form census” in the ‘comments’ section of my census paper.

Harper just makes my skin crawl…he’s the kind of person who’d sell his own mother for the right price…

@ScarletBegonia: That is ridiculous and not really helping the “don’t let it get to heated”. What are you even basing those ridiculous statements on? There is nothing factual in those words… Maybe try a more intelligent argument!

I am happy we (yes, I am a Conservative and not afraid to say it!!) finally got our majority. I think it will be good for Canada to have political stability for 4 years. Harper has no plans to touch any social conservative issues, which I think is great, and will allow me to continue supporting him. I am glad the long-gun registry will be abolished, along with the voter subsidy. 

Also super pleased with the collapse of the Bloc. Don’t let it fool you though, Quebec is on their way to a Parti Quebecois provincial government.

I register my car. I have to register my dog. You should have to register your long gun.

@cvbee: You have your opinion, I can have mine. I don’t actually own a gun, by the way :). It wastes so much taxpayer dollars every year, and in my opinion, does absolutely nothing to prevent gun crimes. How many gunshot murders are the result of a rifle? Most are hand guns, and they legally have to be licensed, which I totally agree with.

@cvbee: Agreed!

While there are several things that pleased me with the election last night-a Conservative majority government is not one of them. I still can’t wrap my head around it.?

@OttawaBride2011: um……what else could i base a statement like “he makes my skin crawl” on, besides personal feeling?  Don’t people ever give you the heebie jeebies?  I wasn’t aware that we had to back up our personal feelings with evidence, or that we weren’t allowed to express them here.

And the selling his mother comment is based on the fact that he and his political mentors (George W and John Howard) are well known for supportint the selling off vast amounts of valuable land and animal’s natural habitats for extraction of natural resources, to the highest bidder and regardless of the effect on the environment.   

Also, if you’re going to shit on me for being factual, perhaps you should avoid statements like “Harper has no plans to touch any social conservative issues” – polititians campaign promises are rarely looked back on as factual!

Harper is full of beans, he says he won’t reopen the abortion debate, well of course he doesn’t have to now that he cut funding to Planned Parenthood. He’s a sneaky SOB and I don’t trust him as far as I could throw him,
