The Election

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on October 17, 2008

was Tuesday.  Yup.  Canada’s government is new(ish?) again.  It was the 40th election in Canadian history.  And, the third in four years. 

Crazy, I know.  Anyways, Mr. Harper failed to receive his goal of a majority government, but he did get a lot more seats.  I hate it when people give him all the credit.  He obviously didn’t do it all alone… (and he only can get One seat.)  Anyways, the Liberals got a lot less seats, and sadly the Green Party failed to get even a single seat.  by the way, for those of you that don’t know, there are 308 seats in the House of Commons (the part that we elect).  
Oh, and this was the worst voter turnout.  I think ever.  59% or something.  Not good.  Nope.

Anyways, I wonder what is going to happen in the American election, because this Canadian election didn’t change all that much.  
Yeah, so thats about it…
