Conservatives take back Canada…

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!
