Interesting Globe Article

I seldom write anything on Canadian politics on this blog, but this article in today's Globe is very insightful and explains why, if I were a betting man, I would wager that there will be a Conservative majority government in Canada this time next year (unless the Liberals can come up some truly helpful and creative ideas and do so quickly, which I think is unlikely).

It all feels like a case of déjà vu.

The simplistic lesson to be learned from all this?

The combination of
(1) Liberty Party = Green Party
(2) Conservative Party = Old Liberal Party
(3) Conservative Party = Governing Party.

Can the Liberals come up with some new ideas to give the Conservatives a real run for their money? Only time will tell.
