It bloweth Left, at least in Canada.
While some wonder whether the latest EU result portends anything for Canada, surely the fact that Nova Scotia will wake up Wednesday morning with an NDP majority government is more indicative of the state of our national politics.
And the NS result will be a good one, too. A party can only ensure its long-term viability by governing successful in some jurisdiction. The next generation of federal NDPers (post Jack Layton, may that day come soon) will soon be able draw from a broader pool of pols with experience in actually working the levers of power, rather than standing on the sidelines and kibbitzing interminably.
