goodbye harper government

This is a day I've been waiting and hoping for, for what seems like a very long time. Goodbye Harper Government™, hello election. Bring it!

Now to glue myself to CPAC.

I watch CPAC on TV, but if you go online, be sure to type dot-CA. If you type CPAC dot-org, it's very scary!

I'm utterly terrified by this. The polls do not look all that good and I have to contemplate the possibility of a King Hubris I *majority*. If this guy is that bad with a minority, can you imagine what he'd be like with complete control?

I don't see that happening. If he couldn't get a majority against Dion, I don't see him getting one now. He may get more votes in ridings that are already Conservative, but I think overall the Cons will lose seats.

I don't fear this election, I wholeheartedly welcome it. It's about fucking time.

Plus a little commentary that supports my view.

Public opinion can turn when you least expect it

Poll shows increasing voter skepticism about Harper govt

Tories pedaling furiously, going nowhere

When Harper thought he could win a majority, he called an unnecessary election himself. If he thought he could win one now, he'd be doing it again - but he's done just the opposite.

One of only five times in Canadian history for a government to be brought down by the opposition. It generally did not end to well for the previous governments that this happened. It won't for this one either. Especially since it was the first one brought down on contempt.
