the truth is, we never left you! (cue Andrew Lloyd Weber)
Interesting, but not entirely unexpected. Elements of the US media have been spinning the Harper victory as a repudiation of progressive principles.
Well this well-written piece (aside from the irritating use of the incorrect 'Progressive Conservative' label) gives some advice and solace to US progressives alarmed at 'Canada's lurch to the right', and urges them not to 'cry for Canada'.
