In a sure sign of the Second Coming, Canada's federal Liberal Party not only managed to lose a seat they've maintained for most of the last century -- the riding of Outremont in Montreal -- but they also managed to lose it to the National Democratic Party (NDP). You know the NDP; it's the party where all the former Leninists go after they discover that Marx was a raging PCP addict, have given-up trying to overthrow democracy, and have actually gotten jobs? Yeah, it's those guys! They never get elected in Quebec -- voting for the NDP in Quebec has always been the traditional way of indicating that you think that the democratic process is a joke, but not so much of a joke that you'd risk voting for the Green Party and actually getting them elected for something.

Well, that was the case until now at least. Thanks to the by-election Outremont, protest voters in Quebec will now have to contend with the fact that voting for the NDP might actually be taken seriously by someone. In a queer twist of Fate, it seems that protest voters are now left with only one clear bastion of the ballot box; consider this the call to cast your next protest vote in favour of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada!
