Already? Jesus. I've been watching CBC all night, they're being very cautious about results - waiting a while before calling seats. I think it'll be closer than most people think in the end, but still a Con minority.

Yeah, I flipped to CBC just after that, and they're not saying anything yet.

I thought it was kind of early - most seats only have a couple of polls in at this point.

I've heard their best shot to get one is in BC. Elizabeth May never really had a chance.

Not so far. There are a hell of a lot of Green lawn signs around here. NDP too, but more Green.

Shit!! I looked away from my tv for 2 seconds, and I missed my local results. Now I'll have to wait till they go through every riding in the entire province in alphabetical order again.

I'd be shocked if they dont get one in BC, however I thought they'd made some headway this direction. Kinda disappointed for them.

BC just joined.

CBC projects Conservative government, but won't say majority or minority yet.

Could get very close to a majority....not sure why CTV jumped the gun like that.

The Greens are a rather conservative party while their voters are much more leftist. I always found it quite odd.

Conservatives need 29 seats of the 31 seats left to come.

It's a minority, folks.

Congrats taxpayers you just bought yourself a $330 million bill to have the same government you had yesterday.

Harper miscalculated in his haste to get this sucker done before November.

It better be a minority. It's typical of us Canadians to illogically go against the grain...here we are on the precipice of an Obama Presidency and we go and fuck with our country and bring BUSH II in a majority government. I'll never figure this out. Damn Ontario and Quebec. Bastards.
