The Greens managed to win seats in parliament. People like Andrew Lewis, David Chernushenko, Shane Jolley, Adrienne Carr, and Mike Nagy. They did not manage to get status however.

Nagy would resign within a year due to personal problems, and Elizabeth May would win a by-election in the riding.

Martin resigned as Liberal leader, and would be replaced with Michael Ignatieff.

The NDP had their best election ever, and the Liberals did awful, with many Liberal votes flowing to the Greens. The Green Party managed official status. Many say that Dion's presence in the debates was important, even if many had difficulty understand what the heck he was saying. Dion came across as a Whip and a Weakling; something that Green Party voters were more than fine with. Iggy would resign as leader.

During the winter, Dion, Duceppe, and Layton held a press conference saying they'd support Iggy as PM in a coalition. This was termed the "coalition crisis", and not only failed to work, but caused the government's poll support to rise. The Liberals also got a small boost due to their lukewarm support for the idea.

As the term of Parliament continues on, none of the opposition parties seem to be able to break though ahead of the pack. By the time the 2011 election came around, people expected the next Parliament to look quite a bit like the last


However, they missed the Orange Surge...


Layton would go on to sweep Quebec and destroy the Bloc. Liberal Leader, Gerrard Kennedy could not gain traction, anywhere, and the Greens even began to outpoll the Liberals. Liberal flubs in the Debates did not help matters. By election day, people were worried the Liberals were done for.

The Liberals were all but destroyed. Polls would later show that 61% of Green voters had considered themselves "liberal" in political philosophy. In addition to Urban voters and Suburban; the Greens were able to pick up the votes of Rural Canadians concerned with the Conservatives being too right-wing for their own good.

Dion would retire in 2012 and remain an MP until the 2015 election. Elizebeth May would win a leadership contest to replace him. The Greens would gobble up many Liberal supporters, and many other Liberals would head for the NDP.
