The results are in, eh?

Canada today elected a minority government controlled by the Conservative Party, not so much because Canadian voters have drifted rightward as because the ruling Liberal Party was beset by scandal that disgusted many in the country.

Conservatives will need to round up 30 other politicians from outside their party to get anything done, so it'll be interesting to see what policy changes, if any, they will bring to our northern neighbor. Incoming Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a one-time Iraq hawk who surely reads opinion polls, already has pledged not to send the Canadian military to help American forces in Iraq, though he does want Parliament to repeal gay marriage.
