Canadian Election Results Thread

Follow the results here, starting at 7pm EST. For background, read Jerome's recent post about it here. Expect either Jerome or I to present updates in this space (probably Jerome). Personally, I am going to go try and finally see Fahrenheit 911. It's only playing at four theaters in the entire Philadelphia area (5M+ people), and has consistently been sold out everywhere.

Update (Chris): The Liberals survive, but they will need the NDP--a little piece of Europe right here in North America. The future is uncertain. If only minority governments in America were viewed in the same manner. Sorry I did not post more--I could not possibly begin to explain why tonight was so difficult for me.

early returns
They come out staggared tonight, iirc, i hope to report them, but from what I've read, it won't be until BC comes in that its going to break.  

On 911, I tried to get in last night in Burlington VT, and both shows were sold out, I figure it'll be a week or longer, given this town's persuasion. I'm off to DC tomorrow to join Markos & Matt Stoller for some presentations, so maybe we'll see it there in the evening.

Staggered to keep Westerns in the game and not giving up on voting based on released information from the east...although this year, I agree, BC will decide quite a bit.

The stars have to do with Saskatchewan, which doesn't observe daylight savings, and are thus an hour earlier to stay in line.

Results flow in quickly and usually things are resolved within three or four hours.  The simplicity of Xs on paper, gotta love it.

Re: Canadian Election Results Thread
Sounds like the conservatives were way overpolled, or that liberal voters came out in droves due to the fear of a potential Bush-like manifestation in CA, thanks for the update.

Re: Canadian Election Results Thread
I guess the marker to hold the CRAP/PC alliance to is what they would have won in the last election, had they not been separated.  That would have been 137 seats for liberals, and 115 seats for conservatives. That's 35 less for the liberals, and 27 more for the conservatives.

Where are the results?
The linked page is all zeros at 7:25 PDT.  Am I too early?
