I was too busy at the Vancouver party to put together a substantial election post (you should be expecting another video soon, you lucky readers), but here are some thoughts:
Linda Duncan. Wow. I will be smiling for a long time over that. You made me proud today, Edmonton.
I'm excited about Don Davies in Vancouver-Kingsway. Don is just a hell of a guy and supremely principled and qualified for the job. It's nice when the good guys win.
In terms of the overall picture, I would say that the big losers in this election are Harper and Dion. Harper called this election to get a majority government. As bad as things looked for him at one point, he can't be that thrilled with the outcome. Dion is in trouble. The popular vote for the Liberals was the worst in history. Somewhere, John Turner is relieved to be handing over that record.
