Conservatives Projected To Win In Canada

OTTAWA - Canada’s major media predicted victory for Conservative leader Stephen Harper in national elections Monday night, an outcome that was expected to push Canada to the right on social and economic issues and lead to improved ties with the United States.
Maybe the new Conservative government will mean less of this sort of ignorant political pandering:
TORONTO, Ontario (AP) -- Canadian officials, seeking to make sense of another fatal shooting in what has been a record year for gun-related deaths, said Tuesday that along with a host of social ills, part of the problem stemmed from what they said was the United States exporting its violence.
Canadian Liberals have a tendency to jerk their knees and kick Uncle Sam in the ass to posture for their constituents. There should be a bit less of that, now.

Perhaps the change in government to the north will also mean a more willing partner to help keep al Qaeda terrorists out of North America - and root out the ones who have already settled in.
