Well, there we have it. The Conservatives can't win in Metro TO, and lost again in Vancouver. Sure the Vancouver contest was closer than one would think, but in the end... well... just look up at the scoreboard. Some will say that these ridings were the Liberals' to lose, BUT one can also argue that these were fresh contests, with NO INCUMBENT - so really "brand new" seats.
Is this night a clear message for anyone? You would have to say that the Cons' hopes of a breakthrough in Metro Toronto are dashed. The Liberals bring a couple of high-profile stars to Ottawa - which cannot be too good for the "One-man Party of Canada". In Quadra, a loss is still a loss. The Cons got a little lucky, and the Liberal campaign wasn't what it could have been.
Is it time to pull the plug on this angry, corrupt government? Well, as a Liberal, things SURE DO FEEL GOOD tonight! Like the man said, "vive la Canada"!
