I'd pray if I thought that was a useful option.

Not sure I'm up to sacrificing a chicken.

Interesting.

However much I dislike the man, you can't say he hasn't put a lot of thought into his running of the Conservatives. Given some of the absolute lunatics he's had to drag along, he's kept many of them as muzzled as the scientists he's clamped down on.

And he may just be tired of the responsibility - it's not a simple job. Maybe he's looking forward to being a former PM.

If so, fervently hope he gets his wish.

The three main parties have been running neck and neck since the campaign started. No one gets any sleep election night until the last poll reports on the west coast.

I'm trying to remember when this happened before.

I vaguely recall some very late election nights.

Given the current population distribution among the provinces, and the current silly complicated formula (which is based on silly adjustments to other silly adjustments to other silly adjustments to a fairly basic formula), it just happens that there will be 338 seats altogether in the new configuration of the House of Commons.

It looks like there'll be no formal alliance at all. Canada is weird that way. We apparently don't do coalitions.

I believe Mulcair (NDP) has expressed openness to a coalition with the Libs, but Trudeau (Lib) has said no to that.

Based on recent history (we had a bunch of minority gov'ts last decade), the party with a plurality of seats pretends that they have a majority even though they don't. The opposition can take them down with a non-confidence vote, of course, but they often don't want to.

Assuming the current numbers hold up, we'll most likely have Harper conceding defeat, and Trudeau taking over as PM. With the new Lib government having a minority of seats, it may only be a couple of years before the next election.

Non confidence votes generally piss off Canadians, because elections are expensive. Nevertheless, it has been done before, so it's a viable threat to a minority government. Personally I like minority governments, as it means they have to negotiate with the other parties if they want to stay in power, which they do.
