I think if the Liberals and the NDP had gotten their act together, there could have been a serious drubbing of the harpercons' fortunes in this election. (I say that with apologies to the Evil Scientist who discounts the impact of vote-splitting.)
That ain't going to happen, but at the end of the day I think we're looking at another harpercon minority.
When that happens, the NDP must join hands with the detestable Liberals and put the kibosh on any further assaults on democracy and any further expansions of the power of the executive branch.
And then it's up to Canadians of good will and honesty, to hold them to account and change the overall culture in this country, from one where it's considered self-evident that teenage boys should be tortured for their fathers' sins, and where if you go to the wrong place at the wrong time you DESERVE to have the police club you with your prosthetic limbs, and where stephen harper and Jim "fuck-head" Flaherty are sound economic managers, and where the proper response to First Nations people rising up to claim what is theirs, is, supposedly, to shoot them; and all that other rot and drivel, to one more centred on intelligence and compassion.
