Yet more notes

The Tories ripped eight seats from the grasp of the Bloc Quebecois. That's remarkable.

Gloria Macarenko just shut her male counterpart up with some on-air flirting. Ian Hanomansing was worse than speechless when she said how seeing him on the big screen did things for her. Whoever was deciding what would show up on the screen was kind and changed the view before he could further embarass himself.

Quebec turned out to 51 Bloc, 13 Liberal, 10 Tory, 1 Independent. My feelings were that the province would end up something like 57 Bloc, 15 Liberal and 3 Tory. The Tories actually took 24% of the popular vote in Quebec.

The Bloc dropped by three seats and 6% of the popular vote. As an aside, the NDP took 7.4% of the popular vote. Not enough to win a seat but interesting nonetheless.

Some MPs who I would have like to see defeated but weren't: Maria Minna, my own MP; Joe Volpe, the former Labour Minister; Belinda Stronach, Scott Brison, Mario Silva, Hedy Fry. Oh well, can't have everything.
