The Prime Minister

     I am afraid I am way out of touch when it comes to Canadian politics, but not totally out of touch. :) Yesterday was the Prime Ministerial elections and Stephen Harper was reelected. This elections has historical significance....It is only the third time in Canadian history that the Conservatives have won three successive elections and the first time the Conservatives have won a majority since 1988.
   In 2004 Stephen Harper helped unit two Conservative parties into one, making their forces stronger. Then in 2006 He was elected Prime Minister, but up until now has been running the country with "his hands tied" because his party has been the minority. Hopefully then next four years will be good ones, as from what I hear, he has done a descent job and getting the country through this recession. Maybe now he will have power to make some good changes.....
