October 15, 2003, Stephen Harper (then the leader of the Canadian Alliance) and Peter MacKay (then the leader of the Progressive Conservatives) announced the "'Conservative Party Agreement-in-Principle", paving the way for the new, united Conservative Party of Canada. Five years later, we have won our second mandate.

And David Orchard was beaten by the Conservative incumbent in Desnethe Missinippi Churchill. Sweet, sweet justice for that loon.

Also, another person still seeking revenge for the merger, Elizabeth May, was handily defeated by the same Peter MacKay in Central Nova. So super sweet.

Another sweet result is that Dona Cadman, widow of Chuck, won Surrey North by over 1000 votes.

Thanks for the reminder. I wasn't much of a conservative, or a politics watcher in October 2003, but its certainly a significant day. A day that began the transformation of our electoral map.

I guess you could argue the map didn't really change begin to change until the '04 election, but the '04 election wouldn't have changed anything without the merger that preceded it.

And as expected, Mark Holland was also defeated.

My FAVORITE outcome in this entire election is PETER KENT nabbing Thornhill!

He by far had the best showing IMO. Simply by being the candidate closest to breaking 416 ground.

I hope he gets a cabinet position of significance. Hopefully Transport minister since he hopes to get a subway/rail extension out of Toronto to the airport and to his region of Thornhill.

PETER KENT is my hero..... lol
