If NS serves as any kind of example (it rarely does),there are three viable parties. The Liberals
and PCs gathered some baggage of incompetence and minor corruption over the years, so when
the NDP moved gently toward Red Tory territory they were rewarded with a majority ... and ,as is a

about it.
In the meantime, a little frothy gloating is to be expected .... and tolerated.
