OTTAWA (AP) -- Stephen Harper says Canadians have "voted for change" and he says his Conservative Party will "take the lead in delivering that change."
Harper made the promise in front of some two-thousand cheering supporters at his campaign headquarters in Calgary after Conservatives ended 13 years of Liberal rule.
The Conservatives won't win enough seats to rule outright and will probably be forced into a coalition. That would make it harder to get legislation through Canada's House of Commons.
The results are expected to improve Canada's ties with the U-S since Harper's ideology is more in tune with that of President Bush.
Harper has promised to tighten security along the border with the U-S in an effort to prevent terrorists and guns from crossing.
Hmmm. I wonder if my friends who are considering moving to Canada may now change their minds...
