Is Ignatieff a total false positive? He was the guy who triggered the whole election in Canada. Now he can't even win his own federal riding? What the heck happened, Ignatieff? A once-proud political party is very fallen from grace. Did it start long before Ignatieff, or was it really all Ignatieff? This is going to require one heck of a post mortem. Heck of a poor decision to trigger this election. No matter what the circumstances, it's difficult to conclude that he was simply a good leader in extremely unfortunate circumstances. After all, he triggered the election, the election wasn't thrust upon him.
As polarizing as a Conservative majority would be, I'm glad we have a majority, and agree with most Conservative policies. So I'm glad we have a Conservative majority. Things get done in majority governments. Perhaps the fact that the opposition is the more-far-left NDP will placate the naysayers a bit. Politics is always messy.
