Woke up at 4 am and couldn't get back to sleep so I of course did the obvious thing and spent several hours reading about canadian politics. I've been trying to figure out how the economy and the shift in american politics is effecting them. Canada is an odd reflection of american culture, it echos so much of our society but on a different structure and with it's own quirks (i.e. quebec).

The conservative revolution in america had a canadian counterpart, though slightly less nasty and willfully stupid. But as the american conservatives have collapsed the canadians seem to be hanging on by their fingernails. They probably would not have ever gotten into power if it weren't for a political scandal and I kind of doubt they'll survive the economic turmoil.
