Conservative Canada

Canada just ousted the Liberal government in favor of Conservatives. (Technically, both were minority governments, but....) Canadian Conservatism isn't nearly as limbaugh as American Conservatism, but the Conservative candidate's platform sounded mighty familiar...

Lower taxes and increase defense spending.

Now, it doesn't really surprise me that the "lower taxes" line works north of the border, but "increase defense spending?" First, I've never talked with a Canadian who's even near that ballpark. And second, is their military notably lacking in some pertinent respect?

Is North Korea sneering at them, too? Are there thousands of migrant Americans illegally crossing their border to do jobs that Canadians just won't do? Are they embarrassed by the paltry number of warrantless wiretaps they perform? Do they want Iran?
