Blue Canada

In five days' time I'll be heading back to a country much colder, much larger, and now much more conservative. From an academic standing point, it will be interesting, but I feel sorry for Canadians, who no doubt will subject themselves to another election in about a year's time when they remember how much they hate Stephen Harper.

Still, I don't feel too sorry for the Liberals, who have done a royal job of shooting themselves in their corrupt little feet (see: Adscam). They've been punished, which is kind of a nice indication that democracy can work from time to time.

And now, because of time constraints and an impending game of touch rugby in the rain, I have to suddenly stop writing.
