Clearly the DISATISFACTION WITH THE PROVINCIAL LIBERALS ALSO IN QUEBEC, ONTARIO AND IN BC HAD HELPED BOTH THE CONSERVATIVES WHO WERE, ARE WILLING TO WIN AT ANY COSTS AND THE NDP
IT WAS ALSO NDP Jack Layton himself now also who had HELPED TO destroy the Bloc Québécois in Quebec AND WHO by splitting the vote with Liberals in Ontario, had also allowed the Conservatives to slip up the middle and win more seats in Central Canada to NOW be able to form a Conservative Majority government. And it was the VOTE anything but the BQ or the Conservatives voters plus NDP Jack Layton directly who had helped to turn Gilles Duceppe into the now removed Progressive Conservative party and the now gone Kim Campbell of the devastated BQ. It was also the NDP Jack Layton himself now who had helped to kick the federal Liberals into third place -the Liberal party’s worst election result ever.
With 99 per cent of polls reporting, the New Conservatives thus had won a majority government with 167 seats, for the first time
followed by the NDP with 102 seats, the NDP is the new official oppostion party are also falsely known as the left leaning evil socialists,
and the Liberals with 34 seats Canada wide, a great wipe out suffered their biggest historic defeat,
and the useless Bloc Québécois with 4 seats, now became an almost a non existent devastated political party but also the CONSERVATIVES IN QUEBEC GOT STILL ONLY 6 SEATS while the Liberals only got only 7 seats in Quebec, compared to the NDP 58 seats in Quebec,
and the Green Party got only 1 seat in Canada.
Any Canadian federal party needs to capture 155 seats to win a majority in the Canadian House of Commons.
The clearly Christian Pretender and even a pretender Conservative Stephen Harper who acts basically as a Liberal even finally getting a majority at any costs, by him clearly ven not keeping his past election promises, by his pork barrreling, by hiring friends, by lying, bullying, and abusing many others in the process still now, was and is one the saddest day in Canada. The Conservatives who only now got 40 percent of the votes and so they didn’t even get 60% of the vote is a reality as to how many Canadians do still dislike them..
Too bad that so little of those Canadian people that voted for him do not even know what potential harm they have done again to their country and their own families. These sadly more money hungry, clearly monetary led misled people of Canada are still just the ordinary sheep who will vote for anyone who tells them the lies they want to hear, and promises them more wealth, and more personal economic prosperity and also thus still will vote for anyone that smells of oil wealth .. even regardless of the actuall unacceptable horrors associated with less gun controls, or that do even now befall the wildlife in the Alberta tar sands, or the related water pollution that was used to extract their oil an own poison. Of course the Conservative spin doctors will point you to other facts, causes..
Even the NDP offical opposition party party might have some difficulties balancing its fresh contingent of MPs from Quebec, who ran also on a program of strong Quebec nationalism, with the NDP grassroots supporters outside of the province. The NDP leader Jack Layton’s will now have to satisfy his Quebec suporters without also upsetting his past support base as the party will have to become somewhat more significantly Quebec-centred,
The NDP will need to work also on how to deliver their promises related to the desires, hopes and aspirations of Quebecers and helping to improve Canada’s troubled medicare, Canada’s health-care system – and the still burgeoning costs that do go with it – is a major concern. Now after five years in office and with the increasing anxiety among a majority of Canadians about our health care, the Conservatives now still have not made a single major policy initiative in an effort to mend it, improve it.
Liberal MP Justin Trudeau said he was pleased to see Quebecers jump ship from the separatist Bloc Quebecois, even if it wasn’t to join the Liberals. “(Quebecers) have stopped saying, ‘OK let’s just sit on the sidelines,’” he said. “I think we’ll look at a very different country in the coming years with Quebec playing a major role.”
The Conservatives gained 23 seats, mostly in Ontario, while the Liberals suffered overall a 43-seat drop. But the NDP, who nearly tripled their seat count, made a major breakthrough and mainly in Quebec, mostly at the expense of the Bloc,by the NDP gaining 67 seats. The unexpected loss of 45 Bloc seats in the province prompted party leader Gilles Duceppe to announce he would resign in days.
No conservatives were elected on the island of Montreal..
1 BQ was elected on the island of Montreal only
7 Liberals were elected on the island of Montreal only
NDP was the dominant choice in Montreal, and in Quebec
Clearly there was a great different voting pattern between the English and French speaking Canadians. The still disappointed majority Conservative government now still does not even have any major foothold in Quebec since they were and are completely out of touch with the needs, and the aspirations of the more socially concious French speaking Quebecers.
“In tough times, we need an honest, trustworthy and transparent government. Mr. Harper and the Conservatives have consistently fallen short on this count, making honesty an expendable virtue more than a few times in the past several years.
More recently, and most disturbingly, Bev Oda thought it perfectly acceptable to alter the intended meaning of a legal document by 180 degrees after it had been signed. Most Canadians know that if they did such a thing while on the job, they would be out of one. Mr. Harper stood by her, effectively condoning such an act. This dishonesty transcends the kind of white lies that people expect of politicians; it suggests hostility toward the truth. Indeed, in some of the government’s stranger moments, the Conservatives appear to have lost touch with reality altogether, blinded by ideology while caught in their own spin cycle. Witness their response to being the first government in Canadian history to be found in contempt of Parliament. To the Tories, this was a mere difference of opinion.
Conservatives often speak of having respect for law and order, an issue that resonates with all Canadians and crosses party lines. Why, then, did Mr. Harper choose to ignore the police report on the long-gun registry, which clearly describes the registry as a crucial weapon in fighting crime and gang violence?
Canada will face serious challenges in the years ahead. Like many Canadians, I’m convinced that Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party are not up to the job. My alternative endorsement echoes the now-famous one by Newfoundland and Labrador’s former premier, Danny Williams, during the last election: Anything But Conservative. Both Michael Ignatieff and Jack Layton have given us far more reason to believe they are trustworthy, honest leaders who have a grip on the reality Canadians face. ” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/anyone-but-harper-a-dissenting-endorsement/article2005395/
