Coalition of the Thrilling

Some thrilling (and maybe disturbing) news in Canada. We asked for a more representative Canadian government (and more exciting Canadian election news) and we might just get it. Have the prayers and hopes of progressives been answered? Are we doomed to neo-liberal policies no matter what? The sky might not be falling but Harper is - the question is what will mean for progressives. Keith and Matt break down the basics for the Americans and then break down Harper's hopes (slim). We wonder how it might all go down, and what we can hope for. And Matt is off to the coalition rally. . . .
