2 Cents

Well, now I've read one account that says the Liberal party achieved the results it did in this election because it was too far to the right, that we were "Blue light" which obviously couldn't succeed when the choice for those so inclined would obviously be "Blue."

I've read another account that says that we were too close to the NDP on the left, and seemed to suggest, a disingenuous version of them which failed in the face of their perceived sincerity over ours regarding those positions which we shared.

Perhaps, just maybe, what we are seeing is more of a polarization of Canadian politics, moving slightly away from that centre ground that we have done so well to occupy in the past.

In such a scenario, you would see more of the kind of results that materialized for the Conservatives and the NDP.
