Canadian Federal Election on January 23rd

For all of my American friends - an important event will take place next Monday, and it will have nothing to do with the USA! Most of you, I'm sure, did not know that there will be a federal election in Canada on January 23rd, determining who will be the new party in power, and subsequently, the new Prime Minister.

For once, the election is kind of thrilling for me, since because of the pervasive corruption of the Liberal party, the Conservative party actually has a chance to form a majority government! At this point, Canadians are so desperate for change, that they'll take anyone but the Liberals. And that's just fine with me.

For information on the Conservative Party of Canada, go here. For polling results, go here, and here.

It apparently looks like a Conservative government, but a poll today shows some gains back by the Liberals in Ontario and Quebec, suggesting the Conservatives may not get their majority. At least, that's what the Globe and Mail says (hopes for?).

Becky,
GO BLOC!!! I miss home. got some questions for ya:

1. best politician in Canada.
2. best party and why.
3. what is the vatican saying about immigration and legal documentation? can you clarify? some guy on CNN yesterday said that the vatican should take them if they are so pro-illegal immigrants... them seems like fightin' words.

Brad,

Best politician: Cheryl Gallant, from my riding

Best party: there isn't really a best one, but there's a better of many evils - the conservative party for sure

I'll have to look into the stuff about immigration and the vatican. I've heard the rumblings, but haven't paid too much attention. Also, be careful to distinguish between what the "vatican" is saying and what the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is saying. One is more vocal than the other typically about immigration (the USCCB).
