On this site, we critiqued Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin’s anti-American rhetoric and Canada’s anti-Americanism manifested even in hockey competition.
We’re glad to see, however, that in yesterday’s Canadian elections, our neighbors to the north have finally seen the light. They said no to Martin’s anti-U.S. rants and shooed him out of office, electing conservative Stephen Harper as their new Prime Minister. Conservatives now dominate Canada’s Parliament with 124 seats.
We hope this means they have turned the corner and that the days of anti-U.S. Canuckistan are thawing.
