Welcome to the vote to decide the 40th Parliament of Canada
We do not have exit polls in Canada.
Official results are expected at 10 p.m., EST.
Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
cp: Con 35% Libs 26% Ndp 18% Bloc 10% Grn 9%
cpac: Con 34% Libs 27% Ndp 21% Bloc 10% Grn 8%
Ctv/g&m: Con 33% Libs 28% NDP 18% Grn 11% Bloc 10%
Ang/Reid: Con 38% Libs 28% NDP 19% Bloc 9%, Grn 6%
Vote early and vote often (that’s the liberal way....)
We will do what we can.
I really need to get my citizenship, so I can vote.
Here’s hoping the Prime Minister gets, at least, a comfortable majority. The Dow Jones rallying yesterday can’t hurt. :)
oops... wishful thinking, I guess.
That would be a comfortable minority. :)
Thanks for the post, fanfan.
We will be watching hopefully.
Even though I get most of my Canadian news from MacLeans, I think it safe to say that the Conservatives are in great shape for a huge win today!
Sometimes I honestly wish we had a qusi-parliamentary system here.
Let’s hope all the ndps and libs can’t be bothered walking to the polling booth today. On second thought, that might give them the idea for a mobile voting unit so they don’t have to budge. A Votemobile - that will be next.
Yes, you do!
Heres hoping the Prime Minister gets, at least, a comfortable majority.
I'll take that one. :-D
Do you know how to link an Mp3?
Just keep thinking.....
LOL. I am the most technically challenged person I know. I can do some links. Where is the thing you want to link?
“I’ll take that one.”
LOL! It’s nice to dream. :)
I would use html but my husband put this on to a French keyboard, so I have all kinds of weird symbols. :)
Anyway, I have to get to work, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed today, and I will check in.
Just got back from The Falls last weekend. Saw Old Fort Erie, Laura Secord House, McFarland House as well. My kids’ first time there. After driving the Niagara Parkway, the kids all wanted to stay. I had to explain to them that not EVERYBODY in Canada lives in houses like those we saw on the scenic route in vineyard country. They think everyone up there is a gajillionaire.
We enjoyed seeing the campaign signs. The kids said something like “look, they have annoying yard signs just like we do”.
In any case, best of luck up there. Here’s hoping conservatism wins the day.
It’s a Mp3 file on a local radio station.
What radio station? I’ll see if I can do it if you tell me how to find it.
