John Ivison: A good night for HarperStephen Harper’s long term strategy has been to break the Liberal brand and drive a stake through the heart of the separatist movement in Quebec. Having won the 41st general election and seen both the Liberals and the Bloc Québécois tumble to humiliating lows, it was a good night for Mr. Harper.But when the majority government was announced in the Telus Convention Centre, it turned into a great and historic night. Mr. Harper said he was humbled by the decisiveness of the result. “Canadians have chosen hope, unity of purpose and a strong Canada,” he said. “We will be the government of all Canadians, including those who did not vote for us.”Photo: Conservative leader Stephen Harper takes the stage at the Conservative Party campaign headquarters in Calgary late Monday evening, May 2, 2011.
