    And Mike....totally agree...although he did assure us he was gonna call Putin a "bully" to his face. I feel better knowing he's not about to take any guff from some ex KGB pussy! In fact, I'm sure he's quaking in his boots in anticipation of the day he officially receives that severe tongue lashing.

    I guess the GQ/Kennedy factor came into play here. His admiration of Red China? Lets hope for the best to our northern allies but I'm thinking its going to be a bumpy ride I mean how much more social can yall get?

    Canadian Left Sweeps Election, Trudeau to Become First Liberal PM in Nearly a Decade


    All news channels are predicting that Justin Trudeau will become the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada and form a majority government. The Liberals are projected to win at least 191 seats as of this writing, exceeding the minimum 170-seat threshold for a majority government.

    The Conservatives are currently projected to win 104 seats, the NDP 32 seats, and Bloc Quebecois 10 seats.

    Beginning with a sweep of virtually all Atlantic Canada’s ridings – 32 of the 338 total seats in the House of Commons – the wave seemed to continue going west across the country as polling stations closed and votes were counted.

    Trudeau’s victory ushers in a new era for the Liberal Party of Canada, which has been plagued with unappealing leadership since at least Paul Martin’s ascendance in 2003. Under Martin’s leadership, the Liberals lost their previous majority government, and then lost power in 2006. Subsequent leadership was equally poor in attempting to rebuild the party’s support; first with a leader who struggled to speak English, then with an aloof part-time Canadian who lived most of his adult life in America.

    Justin Trudeau’s father Pierre served as Canada’s 15th Prime Minister between 1968 and 1984, showing that America is not alone in manifestation of what appear as familial political dynasties.

    Both Stephen Harper and Thomas Mulcair will resign from the leadership positions of the CPC and NDP, respectively.

    Trudeau’s campaign channeled rhetoric reminiscent of President Obama’s presidential reelection campaign in 2012, as well as that of his 2008 campaign while still a senator. His campaign promised “real change,” spoke regularly about the nebulous “middle class,” and framed the consensus of the United Nations as representative of Canada’s international reputation. His campaign also focused on reaching out to young voters. Perhaps most importantly, Trudeau’s campaign has incorporated sophisticated technology for hi-tech GOTV efforts used and proven successful by the Obama campaigns.

    Both the Liberals and NDP hired advisors who were alumni of President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. Cross-pollination of left-wing political strategy across the Canada/U.S. border is not entirely new; David Axelrod advised failed former Ontario Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty. McGuinty is now a lobbyist.

    Trudeau has pledged support to a wide range of left-wing causes. While supporting the Keystone XL Pipeline (while fully aware of President Obama’s opposition to it), Trudeau opposes other pipeline projects to bring crude oil to market to the west and east of Canada. He has promised to ease family reunification of refugees in addition to bringing in another 25,000 from Syria. Canada’s state-broadcaster – the CBC – is likely glad to have been promised even greater funding above and beyond the over $1 billion currently flowing into its coffers annually.

    the admiration of red china was the press taking a quote completely out of context.

    Truth be told, the vast majority of people won't notice a difference up here. The differences between their platforms was so small you'd need a telescope to find them. But damn if the press didn't make it seem like they were complete opposites.

    We'll see how she goes...Like Mike said, despite all the press, and typical political campaign sniping, the actual day to day differences will be marginal. I am sure we will end up paying more taxes, and this is not my personal opinion, but I think he's gonna have a pretty tough go Federally legalizing pot. Sure there are a few States that have, and many that have turned a fairly blind eye to it, but Federally, it's still a huge issue.

    There could be some very heated and not so veiled trade threats associated with the issue, and let's face it...the States ain't just gonna roll over and let it's longest border legalize pot, and either step up their enforcement further, or at least try to take advantage in a strong arming fashion.

    I'm just glad the election is finally over...Nothing compared to the US process, but for Canada, it was a doozy....and the commentary gets real stale early on.

    Biggest issue for me is the gap between mainstream and First Nations. Their voices were heard last night and this could be the start of a huge change in relations. If we don't honour the Treaties and work Nation to Nation now...

    ...I shudder to think about what is to come. Idle No More is as alive and strong as ever, even though you don't see them on mainstream media anymore. Correction. You don't see us...

    i really hope you're right about there being a positive change in relations. The conditions seen in so many First Nation communities is deplorable. I don't think all of the blame for this falls on the federal govt but they need to do better.

    Well it worked so well here...

    Good luck with that.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
