I borrowed that phrase but it’s true. After almost a decade of steering this country off-course, Stephen Harper and his band of misfits has finally been cast off by my fellow Canadians. Following disappointments in 2006 and 2011, I was worried that Canadians had forgotten what made this country so great. Today was a sign that you can only push them so far before they reject the perverted vision Harper had for this nation. I lost $100 tonight but I would say it was the best way to rid myself of $100 in recent memory.
Over the course of the next few days, I will lap up the tears of those puzzling Harper supporters, who somehow drank the Conservative Kool-Aid with such mind-numbing vigour. If Schadenfreude could sustain a person, I might not have to eat for weeks.
