Canadian Politics are Interesting for a Change

Well, I always think Canadian politics are interesting -- I live here, after all, so the outcome tends to matter to me. But it's pretty standard for Canadians to complain that our politics are boring compared to those of the U.S.

Not this week, they're not.

I'm rather amused to see my facebook friends joining "Canadians against a coalition government" and "Canadians for a coalition government", and to notice to what extent their opinions line up with their pre-existing politics. (not to mention "Fire Stephen Harper now!")
