初步結果顯示﹐保守黨贏得了眾議院至少167個席位﹐遠遠超出了贏得眾議院308個席位的絕對多數所需的155個席位。這是哈珀2006年掌權以來第一次擁有眾議院多數席位﹐還將使他得以不中斷地執政到2015年。

哈珀和保守黨競選時傳達的信息是﹐通過履行有關降低企業和個人所得稅以及削減政府開支的承諾﹐維持加拿大強勁的經濟。加拿大經受住了全球經濟危機的考驗。哈珀在選舉之夜的勝利演講時對記者表示﹐加拿大現在可以翻過過去七年不確定的一頁。他還保證將代表所有加拿大人執政。

星期一的選舉也是左傾的新民主黨歷史性的一個夜晚。新民主黨贏得了102個席位﹐這幾乎是他們原來席位數量的三倍。這使得新民主黨正式成為主要反對黨﹐並改變了自己邊緣政黨的地位。

新民主黨的收穫意味着自由黨付出代價﹐自由黨的席位數從77席減少到34席。自由黨以往不是執政黨就是領先的在野黨﹐這是他們最慘痛的選舉挫敗。

自由黨呢班人好黑人憎, 為反對而反對, 令到好多市民希望通過嘅法案唔可以過.抵撚死.
再加上Michael Ignatiaff係俄羅斯佬, D人表面上唔講出口, 心裡面都會對俄羅斯人有顧忌.
條粉腸又舔美國腳趾, 踩親加拿大人條尾, 乜衰野都炒埋一碟. 呢次唔死都無天理.

不過呢次NDP有咁多個位贏到出來又真係幾驚訝. 又真係估唔到D人憎自由黨憎成咁.
我屋企附近D民居front yard插旗都係一半一半, NDP得兩支. 我都錯估形勢.
好高興好開心 "老千自由黨" 得到報應,死得好. 張近ニ十年的心願達成. 死得好!!!
自由黨及BQ大敗﹐加拿大議會變相的成了兩黨獨大﹔個人認為未必是最好的事。許多兩黨政治的國家﹐社會分化情況都會變得嚴重﹔反而﹐有幾個黨互相抗衡﹐政治工作/發展雖然可能慢了﹐但國家整體發展不會左搖一次﹐右擺一次的。
Minority government 小數政府從來只是過度性, 不是治國的好体制, 政治工作不只是慢了一點, 而是什麽也做不到, 美國實行兩黨制已百幾年, 難道是'左搖一次, 右擺一次' 嗎?

NDP升起是因為Quebec人放棄BQ而轉投NDP, 與憎自由黨無直接關係。

我不認為自由黨是老千黨, 只是經過 Chretien 和Martin的黨爭後, 人材凋零, 無以為繼。

當年PC Brain Mulroney 整咗個 7% GST 攪到全民好憎 PC, 跟著無幾耐大選, 自由黨 (Jean Chretien)當時大大聲拍心口, 如果當選會取消 GST, 當然自由黨以大比數當選 (無記錯177 seats)而PC衰過而家的Bloc (好似得2 Seats).
但班老千當選後一句對唔住就唔取消 GST 連一個%都無減, 當啲選民是傻, 請問我是否可以叫班友做老千自由黨.
The GST Story excerpted from Wikipedia.org.

A strong Liberal Party majority was elected under the leadership of Jean Chrétien in the 1993 election. The Progressive Conservative Party fared very poorly in that election, winning only two seats. Although the party recovered somewhat in subsequent elections, it remained the smallest party in the House of Commons until it disbanded itself permanently in 2004, and merged with the Canadian Alliance to form the Conservative Party of Canada.

During the election campaign, Chrétien promised to repeal the GST, which the Liberals had denounced so vociferously while they were the Official Opposition, and replace it with a different tax. Instead of repeal, the Chrétien government attempted to restructure the tax and merge it with the provincial sales taxes in each province. They intended to call it the "Blended Sales Tax", but opponents quickly came to derisively call this proposal the "B.S. Tax", and the name was changed to Harmonized Sales Tax before its introduction. However, only three Atlantic provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador) agreed to go along with this plan, joined by British Columbia and Ontario, in 2010.

The decision not to abolish or replace the GST caused great controversy, both within the party and out. Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) John Nunziata voted against the Liberal government's first budget and was expelled from the party. Heritage Minister Sheila Copps, who had personally promised to oppose the tax, resigned and sought re-election. She was re-elected with ease in the subsequent by-election, however, as was the Liberal government in the 1997 election.

自由黨唔講信用唔係一次半次. 例如安省PM Dalton McGinty承諾唔加煙稅, 當選後居然可以用計錯數為藉口來加煙稅, 結果我以前公司D同事全民買私煙, 抵制加煙稅. 你話D人有幾火滾.

Premier Dalton McGuinty will be returning early from a holiday break to speak on the latest scandal involving board members of a provincially-controlled organization and how his government intends to rein in such spending.

The entire board of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. (OLG) resigned Monday. They were replaced temporarily by provincial civil servants. Their first act involved the firing of Kelly McDougald, the agency's CEO.
"I am disappointed with what has been brought to my attention," Finance Minister Dwight Duncan told a news conference on Monday. "The expenses are a symptom of a much larger problem."

McDougald was "dismissed with cause," Duncan said and therefore will not receive a severance package. Former board chair Michael Gough said he wasn't asked to quit, but did offer his resignation last Thursday.

The Liberals publicly released two years worth of expenses that were filed by OLG board members. They include:
  • gym memberships worth $250
  • Weight Watchers memberships
  • club link golf fees
  • a $1,500 bar tab at a $3,700 dinner for 38 people
  • a $500 nanny fee so that a vice-president member could attend meetings, an amount since repaid


The OLG acknowledged Monday that the spending was unacceptable for a public agency.
In the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2007, OLG had more than $6 billion in revenues, with net income of about $1.7 billion.

Duncan, who took on responsibility for OLG said the government is launching a province-wide review of accountability procedures for the government's agencies, boards and commissions. He hinted a new "mechanism for accountability" would be able to offer early detection of brewing problems, he suggested.

He also dropped another bombshell -- OLG had been issuing untendered contracts.
Such contracts were a major part of the controversy surround eHealth Ontario, the electronic health records agency that also saw its CEO and board chair depart after revelations of excessive spending and the issuing of sole-source contracts.

McGuinty announced the end of sole-sourced contracts and new restrictions on the types of expenditures for which consultants can seek reimbursement.
"This is the right (step) to take in terms of the public and across government, we need to make sure that we have rigorous accountability for all Crown agencies," Duncan said.

Opposition MPPs say the reason the government is acting now is because Monday was the deadline for releasing the results of Freedom of Information requests made by them months ago.

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said the newest scandal shows the McGuinty government isn't in control.
"Dalton McGuinty said the eHealth scandal was the exception to the rule. What we learned today is that it is the rule," he said.
"They went out and fired the last group and brought in a group to clean it up. And this group seems to be even better at getting into the pork barrel," said the NDP's Michael Prue.
McDougald had joined OLG in 2007.

Controversy plagues OLG
The gaming corporation has been scrutinized for the last two years after questionable insider wins, malfunctioning slot machines, spoiled scratch-and-win tickets and a controversial decision to purchase foreign cars as lottery prizes at a time when the Ontario government agreed to a financial bailout for its struggling auto industry.

An audit of the OLG was completed in February. The corporation had until September to report to the ombudsman about changes it had made to improve accountability.
"We've been trying to create change in this place for some time," Duncan told reporters. "Frankly I'm not satisfied with performance to date at the OLG so we took steps over the course of the last few weeks to ensure that the direction given in the past is followed moving forward."

The temporary board "will work with a mandate to maximize OLG's performance," said Duncan.

He added that he hopes the OLG will operate with "better oversight and better credibility" in order to "enhance taxpayer protection."

The shake-up comes just weeks ahead of a provincial byelection in the midtown Toronto riding of St. Paul's, which has been a Liberal seat since 1999.
