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. . . .

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
