Christmas campaigning for Canada

The Canadian government today failed a confidence vote, meaning that elections will be called probably 2006-01-23. Although the public may pay little attention to early campaigning, the ads will undoubtedly start before Christmas. The Parti Québécois is expected to take most of Québec's seats, with the Liberals and Conservatives battling for a majority of the other nine provinces, and several smaller parties in the mix. A coalition government is likely.
