Post-election meanderings

So conservatives are still in power here in Canada, with a minority government. So, uh, after all that fuss, nothing has changed. Now, can we get some awesome politicians with personality who actually have platforms to stand on instead of just relying on the old "insult the other guys so I look like the lesser of two evils" strategy? That'd be awesome, and might even make people care enough to bother showing up at the poll booths. Just sayin'.

Oh, and note for Mr Harper: calling it a "strong minority" does not change anything. No matter how you spin it, the other three parties (y'know, those guys who don't like you) can still take you out. Deal with it.

Not that healthcare is the only thing we have going for us by any means. Here is a list of just some of things for Canadians should be proud of...
