I won’t pretend to understand Canadian politics, but it seems that you guys have done well. Here’s the Raw Story report:
Canada’s Liberal party led by Justin Trudeau, the son of a popular former prime minister, won the general election, television networks CBC and CTV projected — a victory that ends nine years of Conservative rule.
The 43-year-old Trudeau — the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau, considered the father of modern Canada — is expected to succeed the conservative Stephen Harper as prime minister.
Early results showed the Liberals swept all 32 seats in the country’s Atlantic provinces, doubling their popular support in the region, and scored well in key Ontario and Quebec provinces.
The Liberals came from behind late in the campaign, with Trudeau in a last stump speech promising “not just a change in government but a better government.”
Trudeau was elected Liberal leader only two years ago, coming after two past leaders failed to unseat Harper in 2008 and 2011 and subsequently resigned…
He pledged to raise taxes on the richest and lower rates for middle-income Canadians, while spending billions on new infrastructure in order to give the struggling economy a boost.
National Post liveblogging here:
The Liberal Party cut a dominating swath through the Atlantic region, then stormed into Ontario, Quebec and the Prairies as the first two waves of federal election results flooded in Monday, the beginning of the end of a historic, drawn-out campaign that saw political fortunes fluctuate dramatically.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won a majority government Monday, beating out Stephen Harper’s Conservatives and Thomas Mulcair’s NDP by a wide margin.
As up about 11:45 p.m. ET Monday, the Liberals were elected or leading in 189 ridings — up massively from the 36 seats they held at the start of the campaign. The Conservatives led or were elected in 105 ridings, down 54. The NDP was on track to win 36, which would be a 59-seat drop…
May your good example foreshadow similar progressive triumphs down here in 2016!
If results hold, Politico Magazine and The Atlantic will have more representation on Parliament Hill than the NDP. pic.twitter.com/qExbggyIcp
