Is Canada Seeing The Light!?

It appears that the 12 year liberal experiment known as Canada is about to come crushing down! Michael Moore even has to weigh in: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/060121/1/3y2rn.html

"Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, ... but this is no longer funny," Moore complained in a commentary on his website.
Maybe that whole concept of government-run healthcare isn't such a good idea after all, yah know.

I saw that the conservative candidate is ahead of the liberal Paul Martin by 7-12 points.

The Conservatives appear to be on track to win. But there's not a lot of dissatisfaction with the National Healthcare System. I expect that would be the last to go. Most Canadians are appalled by what we have here. I've even talked to physicians in Canada who think their system is just dandy.

The conservative party in Canada is more liberal than the Democratic party here.

I like the title of the article: "US filmmaker Michael Moore weighs in on Canada's election"

Willis is correct (OK, I said it - it won't happen very often) in that one can't equate Canadian "conservatism" with Republican "conservatism" and especially not with Virginia "conservatism." Labels are pretty flimsy devices and can be downright misleading when applied across national boundaries (compare British or German "conservatives" with their american counterparts and you get the same disconnect). Canadian conservative are similar to what we used to think of as "conservatives" in america in their willingness to re-examine assumptions about state involvement in the economy and their snese that the tax structure could be improved to stimulate economic growth.

All true about conservatism in Canada - but all movements have to start somewhere!

And tomorrow Canadians will wake up with a better government then they had today.
