Current situation predicted by RCAF

For further evidence that the 38th Parliament has descended into farce, let me recall a Royal Canadian Air Farce episode from a good long time ago. This was back when they were on the radio. One week, it must have been during the 1979 election, they had one of their show-long sketches. The election had been held. The Liberals and NDP on one side, and the Tories and Social Credit (yes, that's how long ago this was) on the other had exactly the same number of seats. The balance of power was held by the Independant Member for Kicking Horse Pass. Hilarity results. No, the Governor-General did not have to intervence.
