Our Deputy PM, Anne McLellan is behind in her riding, looks safe to say she's gone.

Liberals in Calgary are as low as 4th in some ridings.

At this point, your prediction looks pretty good Umbrax.

CBC reports that there are 15 different political parties represented in this election, plus independents.

Now that's diversity.


To bad it doesn't mean anything with our current voting regime. If we had Proportional Representation then it would be a different story.

THE GREENS ARE LEADING IN THEIR FIRST RIDING EVER!

If I remember correct Anne McLellan is the only Liberal in Edmonton. It is amazing she has the seat at all.

Not surprised at that at all. My Hood is technically a NDP stronghold afterall.

Well they are not leading anymore. That was short lived

Yeah I just seen them fall off the map too. I think they can take 12% off the popular vote though.

Conservatives are killing in Calgary...no suprise. Harper is a head in his riding by like 2000 votes.

Anne was one of two Liberals in Alberta, she's got back to 17 behind. All seats here are currently Tory blue, still a couple over 80%.

The greens are actually showing a small gain in Calgary to about 9%, Global is now trying to substantiate that a Green candidate is now declared elected.

It was while they were on the local feed, it could be someone jumping the gun though. I've got 2 indy's showing now.

EDIT: Quite right, I'm looking at elections Canada site, and I just don't see it.

Conservatives seem to hold 122 seats. They say with the liberals at 103 it is a bare minority needed weaker than even the past liberal minority gov.

Well it looks like we are going to have a interesting, yet short lived minority government.
We are going to have a lot of crazy posts on PTS now.

See y'all in 9 months for the next election

Notice how the Bloc has about 8.8% of the national popular vote and the Greens have arounf 4.5%. The Bloc has about 50 seats, the Greens 0.

There's something to be said for some type of proportional representation.

I'm glad the NDP has made some headway too and at least we have a viable alternative on the non-sovereignty side of the equation here in Quebec.

The Conservatives have picked up their support in the rural areas while the cities stayed Liberal.

So if you were Paul Martin would you stick around as leader of the Official Opposition??
