A Harper Majority--A Fractured Country?
Warren's column this morning gives an idea of what we might expect out of a CPoC majority, but I think he's missing something: the next Que. provincial government is likely to be Separatist. Given that the Harperites traffic in divisive rhetoric, and their party platform includes a number of measures (repeal of the gun registry, elimination of the per vote subsidy) that are vastly unpopular in that province...do you really want these guys governing unchecked over the ROC in advance of another referendum? Look what happened last time.
