Dear Canada,

WHY IN THE FUCK DID YOU RE-ELECT HARPER?! >:(

he doesn't give two shits about the arts/culture of Canada. so he is my enemy.

*beats head on wall*

which comes to this question: is there a difference between Canadian conservatives and the American ones? I SURE HOPE SO

no idea.. i sure as hell didn't vote for him.

and yes, there's a difference between canadian conservatives and american ones in my opinion. canadian conservatives are less vocal and have less power (especially since harper is in a minority government -- wiki). for example, when he was originally elected harper promised to revisit the 'gay marriage' bill but once in power his attempt was quickly shot down by the opposition. so, while he's in control, he doesn't wield all the power.

the one good side here is that it's a minority government (because harper didn't win a majority of the votes, he just had the highest percentage of votes) which means the opposition still holds some power and say over what goes on. and minority governments don't usually last the full four-year term, so there's still a chance of getting harper out of there before his full term is up!

Obviously not every Canadian is a Harper supporter or Conservative. It wouldn't be a minority government if we were all Tories. Trust me, that means that alot of us did not vote Conservative. The Opposition will help keep them in line.
