*Sigh* Oh, Canada

I'm a little ticked at the whole democratic system. We had an election. Conservatives won. Now the opposition is forming a coalition and taking over. They claim Canadians aren't happy with Stephen Harper's economic plan. Well, then why would they vote for him!??! Everyone knows he's a conservative and wasn't going to spur on the economy. Not much has changed in the last couple months. It's "a slap in the face to all who voted in October."

They're leaving the decision up to the political candidates that usually vote with their party anyway. Insane!

Here is a good editorial.

Okay, I'm convinced now.

Don't the Liberals have a deputy leader? What are the rules for leaderless parties? Does the coalition even have any force if Dion isn't the actual leader?

I think he's still the leader, isn't he??? I don't even know! *Throws up hands*
