Backstage Manager(inactive) BS: Federal election (Canada) (135* d) RE: BS: Federal election (Canada) 14 Jun 04

Seems to me that it will determine the future of the country for a long time to come.

Probably not. The way it looks now is that the Regressive Conservatives are poised to take power with a minority government. The problem for them is that they have no basis for ideological support from any of the other parties who will be in the parliament. The Liberals, will be wanting to retake their place as the natural governing party. The NDP is the ideological opposite of everything the Tories stand for and the only common front they share with the Bloc Québecois is on the supremacy of provincial jurisdiction.

The Liberals do not like being in opposition. Martin will probably resign, or face the kind of insurrection he laid on Chrétien. They'll regroup under new leadership just in time for the inevitable 2005 election.
