The Tories, led by David Alward, will form a majority government as results more than two hours after the polls closed showed the Progressive Conservative were leading or elected in 40 of the province’s 55 ridings.
The Liberals were leading or elected in 15 ridings.
“I’m humbled and honoured,” Alward told supporters at his party headquarters in Woodstock.
“What a monumental moment in our province’s history,” he added.
Yikes! Are all the lefties going the same way? Into the garbage dump? Is Ontario next? I think that PM Harper surveying the damage in Newfoundland with Danny Williams will win back some of those riding's. Dalton is dead meat on the political scale, so is Campbell. Manitoba is looking to elect a Conservative government, and shock of all shocks, Toronto might elect Ford, a can do candidate.
The Liberals are running for cover, but they can't find it. Promises are easy to make, but not so easy to keep.
Polls tell us that the Conservatives can't form a majority government, but I wonder if ads during an election, targeting Iggy's desire to increase the GST, and provide free abortions in Muslim countries, might not just give the Conservatives the majority they need to get things done.
Conservatives need to engage more with bloggers. If the MSM is Liberal biased, then MP's need to counteract it with bloggers. Many bloggers have driven the MSM agenda, they have created the news, that the MSM reluctantly covers. Conservatives need to use the blogging army better than they have.
Unfortunately, many MP's look at us as a threat. They think our opinions will reflect badly on them. Chickens. We are a front line defense of Conservatism. Didn't they get elected because they were supposedly Conservative? Shouldn't they support our efforts to blast Conservatism to all Canadians?
They have a taste of power, and they want to keep it, so they sweep out all the reformers and true Conservatives. They reduce Conservatism to a backward fringe group. They ignore the social Conservatives in their march towards a majority. They cater to the Red Tories. This will lose them the next election. They need to get back to Conservative thinking. Smaller government and tax reductions.
Canadians might be rejecting the Liberals, for now. The Conservatives should not be too cocky about the results. One province flipping is not an indication of how the federal vote will go.
