Unprecedented political ups-and-downs

In Canada: Prime minister suspended parliament from yesterday until January to avoid a vote that would most probably have removed him from government. This is less than two months after his government was re-elected.

In Brazil: President Lula’s approval rates reach a new record: 70%, surpassing the previous record of 64%, which was also his. This is after he lost three presidential elections in 12 years.

Curious, no?
