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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
