Good News From Canada
However, the best thing isn't really that the Conservative Party won, but that the left-wing New Democratic Party lost. It's policy of broad based tax increases would have hurted the Canadian economy, as would its environmentalist limitations on oil extraction. In a time of high oil prices, the latter would have been especially harmful for those of us who aren't Canadians.
I note BTW that support for the New Democratic Party to a disproportionate extent came from French speaking Quebec. For decades there has been a movement in Quebec to declare it independent from Canada. Perhaps the time has come for the rest of Canada should declare itself independet from Quebec.
