selven writes: With the left wing split between the Liberals and a resurgent New Democratic Party (NDP), the Conservative party has won a majority government. The final tally is 167 C, 34 L, 102 NDP, 4 for the separatist Bloc Quebecois (down from 47) and 1 for the Green Party. The Canadian conservative party is known for such things as his attempts to pass highly restrictive copyright laws and their platform for this election intends to increase internet surveillance, a possibility of warrantless disclosure laws and a right to break digital locks, as well as no review for the CRTC, something which all other major parties support.
