A view from abroad

Rebuke from Canadians as Liberals lose majority - World - www.smh.com.au

I stayed up way too late last night, watching the returns from the Canadian election. In so many ways, I am a border-straddler. We live about 25 miles from the Canadian border. The radio is permanently tuned to CBC. I am a proud Canadian citizen, but I am no longer a Canadian resident. It felt very strange for me to not vote in yesterday's election. I could only watch from a distance .. and that distance might as well have been from Australia.
