The Cobags Won


I'm too upset to breakdown the election, but it's a very sad day for me and for all Canadians with a social conscience. With only about 36% of the popular vote, giant cobag Stephen Harper is now the Canadian Prime Minister. This is a defeat for everything that I love about Canada. It's a defeat for social justice. It's a defeat for women's rights. It's a defeat for unity. It's a defeat for ethnic groups. It's a defeat for gay men and women. It's a defeat for health care. It's a defeat for education. It's a defeat for a balanced budget. It's a defeat for keeping a voice independent of America. It's a defeat for the poor. Canada is f***ed. Really royally f***ed. Pretty sad that about half the country voted for our two socially liberal party, The Liberals and New Democrats, yet we are now going to be run by the neo-cons. Thank goodness for the one voice of sanity in North America ...... Mexico. Sigh. I'm going to get drunk now.
