  •  The Canadian left is going through (0+ / 0-)

    what the Canadian right went through in the 90s and early 2000s. The right was split between Reform/Canadian Alliance in the West and the remnants of the Progressive Conservatives in the east. Their mutual competition led to the Liberals sweeping almost all of the Ontario seats (which make up a third of the House) and forming government until the Canadian right was able to unify under the Conservative banner in 2003. The Liberals started going downhill from there and, combined with the sponsorship scandal, saw its government defeated in 2006.

    23, D, pragmatic progressive (-4.50, -5.18), CA-14.
