Well, the Canadian Federal Election has ended and...
Not much has changed, but a lot has.
The Liberals now hold a minority, which means they control the most seats of any individual party but lack a majority of seats in the House of Commons. This results in them needing to form a coalition with another party in order to hold enough power to pass bills. If they don't, well, the Opposition can more or less gain control.
The PPC (a brand new populist party) got no seats, to no one's surprise and everyone's (who matters at least) relief. Their views are very much racist and discriminatory and not at all what Canada stands for.
Unfortunately, the NDP didn't get their surge of support they had hoped for, but their left-leaning ways should, if they are willing to - allow them to form a majority coalition with the Liberals.
Here's hoping they push for Electoral Reform, something we needed last
election, let alone this one.
