Winnipeg Wants In

Forget about The West Wants In. Winnipeg Wants In. For as long as I've been old enough to follow politics, the Liberals were never stingy on cabinet seats for Winnipeg. You get accustomed to a certain level of representation, y'know? Well here we are. Sure, only 35% of us voted Conservative, but they still got the plurality of seats in Winnipeg (tied with the NDP). I've never seen that happen before. Granted, my political memories go back only as far as 1993, but still, it's noteworthy. What do we get in return from Stephen Harper? Zero cabinet seats. Outrageous!
