It's the Final Countdown ...

I know I shouldn't have used that title. With all due respect to Europe, I'm going to have that awful song in my head all day now. And, just the opening synthesizer part too ...

Anyway, today is expected to be the last full day of work for the minority Liberal government in Ottawa, as they are expected to lose a motion of non-confidence against a united opposition. Mr. Martin will then likely head tomorrow to Rideau Hall and ask the Governor General to dissolve parliament and call for a general election in the new year.

To be honest, I have no idea how this election is going to turn out. I suspect, we'll be in another minority government situation - but who governing, is up for debate.

Depending on your spin, you see a rosey outlook for your party, and I'm largely no different.

I do plan on helping my local Conservative candidate on their campaign, so I'll try to do some posts from the front. Toronto is a near impenetrable Liberal Party stronghold, so it's always interesting the conversations one can find themselves in.

Take a cruise through the 'sphere today, and you'll see other posts and points on the election.
