It's been a strange week for Stars singer Torquil Campbell. On Monday he realized the group would be scheduled at this year's Ottawa Blues Fest at the same time Icelandic singer Bjork was performing.

Tuesday morning was spent consoling bassist Evan Cranley on the Toronto Maple Leafs unprecedented playoff collapse to the Boston Bruins.

This morning Campbell is railing against the provincial election results in British Columbia, even creating his own "movingtoamerica" hashtag in protest while stating the country "is going to shit."

Yesterday the singer tweeted the following: "saying a prayer today for the end of the corrupt, incompetent campbell/clark dynasty in my beloved BC today. let's lose the losers people!"

After results yesterday showed the Liberals winning a majority, but Liberal leader Christy Clark losing her own seat, Campbell paraphrased the late writer and journalist H.L. Mencken by saying "nobody ever went broke underestimating the stupidity of the british columbian public."

"the bc election is further proof that if the left in this country don't unite we will not recognize this country in ten years," he added in a series of tweets and replies to others. Fellow musician A.C. Newman replied to Campbell's "movingtoamerica" statements regarding cheap alcohol with "I know! Canadian alcoholics need a good union job just to get by."

Here are other reactions to the British Columbia election from fellow Canadian musicians:
