I'm all for vote splitting

When it is the far-right vote that might be split.

This past weekend hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to Washington for a rally about taking back their country. They came to hear speakers such as Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, and although not explicitly a Tea Party event, the crowd drew many from the movement that calls for government to get government off the backs of hard working people.

Andrew Lawton wants to bring that spirit to Canada.

Lawton, a conservative-leaning activist from London, Ont., is one of the organizers behind an online attempt to start a Tea Party movement in Canada.

Mr. Lawton, I wish you nothing but the best. Go ahead, tear apart Mr. Angry's tenuous coalition.  The rise of the Reform Party and disillusionment with a Conservative government was a key factor in the collapse of the Progressive Conservative Party.  May history repeat itself.  This time as a farce.

If there's going to be a Tea Party movement in Canada, it can only come from the left. The right is holding all the cards and then some. They have the money, the media and most of the power. They have little to whine about and no reason to protest. Not gonna happen. It will have to be religious deal like Beck's got going for him. And that could happen.
