I'm voting tomorrow but I'm undecided still. Voted NDP last time but they lost in my riding (as they did in many ridings!). But they seem to be in better shape now and should make some gains. I'm thinking the Greens will gain as well. The conservatives, bloc, and ppc are not very competitive in my area. I wouldn't mind the liberals too much but trudeau burnt too many bridges. If I had to predict, it will be a minority conservative or liberal government. A coalition isn't out of the question either but we haven't seen one on a long time.

Going Conservative even if Andy isn’t who I would have chose to be PM, they had several other better contenders with some strong women that I found better suited then Andy. Liberals, NDP will destroy the economy and think more tax will fix everything. They are financial disasters who will push business and tech further out of our country. greens are crazy with grand ideas and no real plan to implement them.



Trudeau needs to go, but the replacements aren't exactly compelling no matter how you slice them. It'll be Scheer or Bernier for me. Probably Scheer because Ontario already has Conservative Gov and more get's done if the party is the same throughout. Mind you allowing that for too long isn't good either. I also think Trump will be much more friendly to a Conservative Federal Gov here.

I'd guess the Conservatives will take power. Don't think it will be a landslide but also don't think it'll be a close call. The Ontario poles for Ford didn't make it look like he was going to run away with it, yet he steamrolled Liberal Premier Wynne, who unlike her name, lost. Horwath's New Democrats did ok in that election surprisingly, but I don't see the NDP having that sort of backing in this Federal election.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Trudeau has to go.



I think the same thing's going to happen as happened with Trudeau's father - he'll lose his majority, but be able to fall back on the NDP (and/or the Greens, if they win enough seats to make any difference) to stay in power. Scheer might get close to, even slightly ahead of him in seat counts, but the Bloc aren't going to prop up a Conservative government, and unless the polls are hilariously wrong the People's Party won't win enough seats, if they even win any at all, to be of any help.

It's OK, Canada! Your country won't collapse under a minority government; this happens regularly in normal countries.

Besides, it shouldn't be anything new for you guys, Justin Trudeau has been dressing like a minority for years now.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Bang on!



Is it the usual populist left establishment versus the comically evil and incompetent right? If not, I might as well follow the boring German elections.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

While the Conservatives were probably hurt by things outside of their control - Doug Ford tanking their popularity in Ontario, the Bloc's unexpected comeback - I think Andrew Scheer really screwed this campaign up. It often felt like he was more concerned with neutralizing the People's Party than tackling the Liberals head-on.

Gotta feel for the NDP as well. When you look past the fact that they're now able to prop up Trudeau and probably demand the odd concession from him, they're basically back to where they were pre-Jack Layton.



I was glad to at least be part of the election process since I worked for them this year (nice to try something new for once !)

Anyway, best outcome has happen with a minority Liberal government which means they'll have to work in coalition with other to make anything pass thus, forcing their hands to make better laws for us.
As for my home province, lol. The Bloc came back strong as the 2nd opposition now. Not surprised since the rise of nationatlistic values always happen after those in power have nothing to care about us.
