    I believe this deserves its own thread since it has a different focus

    What's worse is that the liberals have no seats in two provinces.

    Leads some credence to the criticism that some provinces have too much power.

    Either way the people have spoken. Looks like another term of identity politics, higher taxes, broken promises from our Prime Minstrel.

    Shouldn't this be part of the Canadian election thread?

    Some credence?

    The elections are decided before they even finish counting votes in the west. We don't have a real democracy.

    We have an eastern liberal mafia that run the country out of Quebec and Ontario.

    But nobody will be running the country soon if we dont shake the leftist diseases.

    Did liberals at least get closer to losing power? Maybe things are headed in the right direction? Canada sounds a lot like California. I feel like it's only a matter of time before people's common experience takes precedence over the bullshit they see on the media 24/7 and they finally kick Democrats out of Power.

    It's gotten too big and it focused on the days leading to election day. This one is about the result and I feel it has a different focus

    Apparently Canadas elections are as much of a sham as ours. Who knew?

    Definitely a sham. More canadians wanted the conservatives to win than any other party

    Although I voted conservative, I can't complain that the popular vote didn't get Scheer in. I didn't think Hillary's popular vote should make her the POTUS so I'd be a hypocrite to think the same for Scheer.

    I actually feel like people's real experience is a lot more positive than the media putting forth negative news all the time.

    Agreed, we knew the system before hand and we can’t whine now. We can only hope for some sense of sanity.

    Theres 30 million people in the worlds 2nd largest country by landmass. The natural resources are limitless by those numbers. The population should have been money free and onto the next level of human existence a long time ago.

    But instead they are mired in the same mythical economic theory that plagues the rest of the world, electing weirdos in a political farce, and sending us anchormen for whatever reason. Curious why that happens.

    I live in California and I think it's worse than our media is reporting. They tend to cover it up or not report on it at all on the Local news outlets. Which is what most casuals watch.

    As long as it forces them to work with the NDP I'm happy.
    I think more Canadians wanted any party BUT Conservative.

    You can be guaranteed that if the roles were reversed, Liberals would be rioting in the streets. Today, Conservatives are disappointed but they get up and go to work and get on with their lives.

    That is the difference between conservatives and liberals. As evidenced by the now three year temper tantrum by Leftists in America.

    I mean more people voted for a left of centre party so 34 percent doesn't mean much
