Canada has a new Prime Minister

So many things have happened since polls closed in BC last night at 7pm. The Conservatives have the most elected seats and will form a minority government. Paul Martin has decided he will step down after his Liberal party lost this election (big surprise there). What’s really interesting to me and very very wrong with our electoral system is that the NDP received 17% of the overall votes, but only 29 seats. Compare this to the Bloc de Quebe Crap or whatever it’s called and they only have 10% of the votes while holding 50 seats in parliament! Wtf? Yeah, I can see that the will of the people was served here. Anyways, change should be good. Let’s see how long this will last. More at CBC.
