MOST BORING ELECTION EVER?

Which, overall, isn't a bad thing. I think Ontarians decided that they would just carry on with decent, not particularly rigorous or visionary government. Perhaps we are still rebounding from the tumult of Rae-Harris.

In another victory for the status quo, MMP voting was defeated by a sizeable margin. So much for my prediction of a close 50-50. But I'm happy the result was clear - given the potential ambiguity the super-majority could have caused.

In fact it seems politics at the provincial level is so boring (despite is relevance to actual governance), that the need to frame the results within a federal context is unavoidable.

Did Harper win or lose with McGuinty's Liberals?

My guess is he doesn't care.
