A Cold but Enthusiastic Rally for Canada

I voted Conservative last time, probably will next time. But I vote Liberal just as often. Either way seems okay. But one good thing out of all this is that the federal government is almost certain to bring a budget that will spend us out of the economic mess. I'm not sure that would have happened before. We need to spend like Obama plans to and the Europeans already are. And I think Harper has learned his lesson and will bring a budget like this now.

Great pictures and great for democracy. If nothing else comes of this, politics in Canada has become more important to all Canadians.

I'm not sure if this will help. I've uncovered some written evidence of a letter writing campaign by Stephan Dion to enlist US aid for his campaign. He may bury us Barack Obama style with mountains of online American fundraising.
