The Conservatives in Canada have rolled back into power, even dumping the Deputy Prime Minister out of parliament and wiping out Liberals in Alberta, though Canada has a way of exaggerating the political fortunes/misfortunes of it parties. Mark Steyn blogged it. Michael Ignatieff takes up a career on the Liberal backbenches, and gives a good outline of how his party lost the election (sound file), rather than how the opposition won it per se. A serious boost for the rising confidence of the Tories in Westminster! See The Agonist for more background!
