    Elizabeth May is in to an early lead.

    Iggy is going to lose his own riding.

    Me and my friend just lost our job starting 2012. Literally. This is what happens when you work in science related fields under Tories.

    Prisons we don't need, I wonder how long until they try and reverse gay marriage laws. Back in time we go! Stupid android harper. At least the NPD is currently leading in my riding :D

    Looks like Layton gets to keep his job for a while longer. Iggy is going to get tossed faster then PC in 93 but at least hes going to have Duceppe and Dion to break his fall. Guess were now left with Rae to lead the Liberals.

    Now taking all bets on when the NDP and Liberals will merge.

    On the upside, Jack will be the strongest leader of the opposition we've had since Harper first took power.

    I am a proud liberal and its time to unite with the bloody NDP. Never thought it would come to this. No, the Liberals will not recover on their own.

    The only question left to be answered on the night, will Elizabeth May hold on and bring the Greens into the House?

    Edit: looking good... she's widening the gap.

    Too little too late. Should have been done before.

    I'm still not so sure it will happen, at least not anytime soon. I think the Libs will wait a couple of years to see if the national mood has changed before they do so.

    At least May winning a seat would be a small piece of good news on a night full of bad news

    Duceppe officially beaten. The disintegration of the Bloc is done.

    And he may be tempted to hint at an interest for PQ leadership... My thought. If he does that... ROC may be surprised.

    I'm surprised that Charest has held on as long as he has.

    Funny thing about Duceppe is that he was actually well respected in the rest of Canada outside of the separatist thing.

    If he switches to PQ, we have a PQ majority. Duceppe is still immensely popular.

    This is why I'm saying the Bloc downfall may be misleading for ROC as to the sentiment in the province. And combine this with this Tory ROC...
