Canada had their 40th General Election last Tuesday, 14 October 2008; and Mr. Stephen Harper managed to secure enough votes to continue ruling the country, a stronger minority government than in the previous term. First world leader to be win an election after the current financial crisis in U.S. and elsewhere.
Can this be a sign of rise of conservatism in Canada? Maybe. If this is true, maybe their Republican counterparts in U.S. that share the same ideologies will continue to hold White House. Or is it because Harper is young? Then Obama might have a greater chance to be the next resident of White House.
