*UPDATE* Canadian Election Night – Open Discussion Thread – Trudeau Wins Reelection…

UPDATE – RESULTS: Everyone Declared Victory.

Justin Trudeau celebrated an overwhelming victory following the results of the Canadian election – SEE RESULTS HERE –  The Liberal party lost 21 seats but remained the majority parliamentary winner albeit without a majority. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a “solid mandate from the election results.”  The Conservative party gained 27 seats and the most national votes, but remain the losing party.  The New Democrat Party lost 15 seats and declared the 2019 election a major success for their agenda.

It’s all weird.

During their post election speeches the Liberals (Trudeau), Conservatives (Sheer), New Democrat Party (Singh) and the Green Party (May), all declared victory.  It seemed like a hot mess of political messaging; but hey, that’s Canada.

Congratulations, I guess.

Liberals (RED), Conservatives (BLUE), New Democrats (Orange)

 

Tonight the results of the Canadian election will start to be announced.  Canada is a parliamentary system and therefore voters do not vote for a national candidate, instead they vote for a local representative, MP’s, who belong to a national party.

There are 338 separate district races called ‘federal ridings’ from coast to coast.  In order for a party to win outright they need to win 170 district seats.

If a party doesn’t win 170 seats they need to form a government in combination with one, or more, of the other parties.  Whichever party wins the majority of the seats elects a leader to become Prime Minister.

Currently there are 177 Liberal seats; 95 Conservative seats; 39 New Democratic Party seats; 10 Bloc Quebecois seats; 2 Green seats; 1 People’s Party of Canada seats; and 8 Independent seats.  Early results should start coming in around 7:00pm Eastern.

        When I lived in Detroit we would occasionally head across the river to Windsor for dinner and a night out. We always felt like we were stepping back in time ten years whenever we were their. You may be right about Canadians, dufrst.

        The consensus at the election headquarters desk was that Trudeau and the liberals answered the voters’ doubts about their record with, “If you think we’re so bad, consider the (conservative) alternative.” This seems to be the democrats’ current strategy here at home.

        For a snapshot of how well that’s going check out this RedState post.

        The 2016 census returned a result of 22% of the Canadian population as foreign born.
        5% of that alone were people that identified as Chinese. That number will increase dramatically given the number of HK Chinese that hold “Safety passports” they paid for in cash at the turnover but didn’t take up Canadian residency, and that does not take into account the mainland Chinese that have a foothold through purchase of “entrepreneu visas” or the express train of muslim refugees that have been permanently resettled in Canada by the Trudeau government.

        The 22% from 2016 – that percentage is significantly higher now, and centered in the urban centers, which control how the votes go. The situation in Canada is much different than the US. Trump is trying to prevent the US from becoming Canada in that respect. Scheer tried to run on a “Canada First” immigration policy, but it was half-hearted at best. I think the 2021 census is going to be a shocker for Conservative Canadians, but the Progressives (Liberals, NDP, Greens) will cheer.

        Yep. Even the “Conservatives” are left by US standards. Scheer was going to keep the dairy subsidies “supply management”, Paris climate accord, wanted to raise the age Canadians could start collecting Old Age Supplement (which is an extra payment in addition to their Canada Pension which is their Social Security), and reverse hikes to the CPP which would mean less money for future retirees.

        Canadians voted to keep the illusion of the good times going. They voted for things they don’t have the money to pay for. Canadian households have the highest household debt ratio of any developed country, by a significant margin, and home to two of the biggest global real estate bubbles fueled by illegal foreign money (Vancouver and Toronto).

        This isn’t going to end well.

        I doubt it. Immigrants hostile to whites and the “founding nations” have too strong a foothold in the urban centers now. The current Liberal Cabinet Minister for Immigration and Refugees is a Somali “refugee” who is a “social justice activist” from Regent Park (Toronto’s version of the “projects”) who went on to become a lawyer and quickly learned the ropes of lawfare in the pursuit of “social justice”. He has no interest in reforming immigration policy or closing the loopholes that allow anyone to take a taxi to the Canadian border, cross illegally, and be allowed to stay while their claim works its way through an overburdened system, at the expense of actual Canadian taxpayers.

        The leader of the NDP party, a Sikh, declared Canada a racist country. So racist that they opened their doors to people from all over the globe, with and without skills and a way to support themselves. Studies have shown that second generation immigrants continue to draw on the welfare system at a far higher rate than native born Canadians in spite of being given opportunities denied to native born Canadians in the interest of “fairness”. The die has been cast, I don’t see how true Conservatives, in the American sense, can ever gain a foothold on power again on the federal level.

      Trudeau’s father won big in ’68, fell back to a minority in ’72, but returned to a majority in ’74. The big cities in Canada, like the USA, much prefer the liberal parties. Government workers in both countries will always support the big-government party. Competence is not a concern; bad governance means wasteful governance means good times for bureaucrats.

      Canada desperately needs to build oil pipelines to get our product to world markets. Guess what? We just re-elected a Prime Minister and his government opposed to oil pipelines. They are committed to fighting climate change, on the backs of the Albertans who hate them. Where’s the downside for Trudeau? This dichotomy has existed in Canada for 50 years. Would Americans like to accept Alberta as a 51st state?

        Alberta voted all Conservative and it’s not enough. Trudeau wants the oil industry to die. He wants the auto industry to leave. He wants a post-industrial society. Only when people fully grasp what he has in mind, will they turn on him: if they’re allowed.

        What people want, even in Canada, is the post-second world war two American model: a house in the suburbs and a big car. Foreign vacations. Justin and Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg and Macron and on and on, have something very different planned. You will live in a tiny space, and you will ride the bus, and you will very carefully monitor your energy consumption because the price is very high. If Ocasio-Cortez had her way, you would need a permit to leave your city of residence. Travel is done. So is eating meat, by the way.

        These rules, of course, will not apply to the elite. The pleasure of space and movement, the pleasure of privacy and free thought, will no longer be allowed. Many of your fellow citizens will support this, if the welfare state is supplied, in return. That’s what’s intended with the guaranteed annual income. You exist, and you obey.

          All the above is happening in my neck of the woods in Australia. Houses are completely overpriced, look it up, you will be shocked. Electric and gas prices are ridiculously high (thanks to the environmentalists who had numerous power stations demolished, yes, demolished) which forces people to watch their energy consumption. Also in my area, where once nice 2 lane roads have all been changed to 1 lane roads to make way for brand new bicycle lanes. Its madness. Traffic congestion is rife now, and no one, and I mean no one is on bicycles using these new lanes. Its almost like they want to force people onto public transport. Option #1 use your motor vehicle and you will sit in traffic for hours, or Option #2 you can take public transport. The “environmental” bike lanes (which no one uses) are simply a means to congest traffic and force people to ditch their vehicle.

            Interesting take on the bike lanes, Raptor.
            After Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was hit with an influx of “hipsters” from out West and these people have instigated the creation of bike lanes all over the city. (They also fueled the fire to remove our Confederate monuments under the previous mayor).

            Pictures of bikes were just painted onto the right lanes, so people still drive cars in those lanes.
            Every now and then someone will get run over and the bicycle activists are all over the media whining about how drivers have to stay out of the bike lanes.

      Not necessarily. I can only guess something so stupid is Gerald Butt’s idea. Trudeau is going to govern as a minority and “canvass” for votes on an issue by issue basis, rather than form a minority coalition. The chance of a non-confidence vote and dissolution of Parliament in the near term is not zero. Far higher than this current clown rodeo lasting four years. That’s before Trump brings the pain for poor choices. If the team at 1600 are smart and understand even a smidgen of the internal dynamics, they can leverage this greatly to their advantage. My vote is with Team MAGA. Trump will no longer feel any restraint to go after ALL their auto sector jobs and more.

    Without his majority, Trudeau will have to reach out to other parties in order to prop up his Liberal party— and how they will cobble together the 170 votes needed. Rather than create a formal coalition, the prime minister will likely use a process known as confidence and supply, in which the Liberals reach out to different parties in order to secure votes for legislation.

    The results open the door to the leftwing New Democratic Party and Bloc Québécois to the balance of power a minority government.

    The star of the evening was Yves-François Blanchet, leader of the separatist Bloc which managed to more than triple its seat count over the 2015 election.

    Jagmeet Singh of the leftwing NDP, who surged in the polls in the final weeks of the campaign with the aid of viral social media videos, wasn’t able to convert the popularity into electoral wins. The party’s 44 seats were nearly cut in half.

      – The Liberals are not going to form a coalition government with the NDP. There are many reasons, but the underlying reason is principally the snobbery of the Laurentian Elite, and the fears that forming a coalition government will further legitimize the NDP as a federal party capable of running a government on its own, thereby further eroding the Liberal immigrant strongholds.

      – The Conservatives gained 25 seats but overall the NDP has been steadily increasing its base and its influence, mostly at the expense of the Liberals, but most of Ontario which could be counted on a solidly blue (Conservative) has been shifting to the NDP and Liberals. The shift to the NDP is mostly due to the enthusiasm for socialism for the minority communities from India, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. Historically, the NDP was the party of the unions/working class, but no more. Think of the NDP as the SDS wing of the Democrat party (The AOC +3 block) and who their ideology appeals to.

      -Yes, the BQ doubled their seats at the expense of the Liberals. The only places the BQ did not do well in Quebec are the immigrant neighborhoods of greater Montreal. However, what many people are ignoring is that the Eastern townships of Quebec went Conservative. Those are the farming communities to the south of the Saint Lawrence river, and most impacted by the “walk through traffic” of the taxi taking “asylum seekers” Trudeau welcomed with a tweet that the border is open to all. I found it interesting that those ridings went Conservative rather than BQ.

      There will be a lot to tease out when the results are certified.

          More likely the BQ is peeling votes away from the Liberals in Quebec, bringing down their overall share of the vote, but not by enough to win the riding, so it’s still a “win” in the Liberal column.

          BQ has no desire to work with a Trudeau government, so they will be working to force a non-confidence vote when the opportunity presents itself.

          The old school Liberals won’t want to work with the NDP, who they still see as upstarts, and thereby, give them legitimacy as a viable government party. Liberals rightly assess that forming a formal coalition with the NDP will erode their own power base over the long term. Both parties are slavishly courting the immigrant/non-founding peoples vote.

      Because the election is won riding by riding.

      The Prime Minister will be the leader of whichever of the 7 parties running have won the most ridings by a majority vote, not the most votes overall. Someone could theoretically win a seat with less than 30% of the votes, with 7 choices on the ballot.

      Canadians do not get to vote for their Prime Minister directly. The fact that there are 7 parties on the ballot is splitting votes in ridings. This “should” have worked to the Conservatives’ advantage, but Scheer’s team couldn’t get their act together.

      Any party that wins 170+ seats gets a clear majority in Parliament and can set the agenda and just basically do whatever they want. Anything under 170 seats, they have to try and form a “coalition” government with one of the other parties. It does not have to be the party with the next most votes, just enough seats (votes) to get them to 170.

      The news is reporting that the Liberals do not intend to seek a coalition government, they are going to set the agenda and just whip votes for each issue (“canvass Parliament”) Good luck with that. The NDP and BQ are at loggerheads for core beliefs about the direction of the country, and the Liberals will need votes from either to pass anything.

      It’s just going to be a giant Clown rodeo.

      a friend from the North had this to say…

      “In a nutshell, the PM is neutered, any big bold moves and the other parties can cause a ‘vote of non-confidence’ and the govt. falls. Then we have another election.

      You need 170 seats to form a majority govt. Turday-O will only have about 157. He can partner up with the NDP or Block as a coalition, but he has to toe the line with them or they remove support and the govt. fails.

      It’s a pretty lousy system, but sometimes a minority govt. can be a good thing, no major changes to the country. The Block is a Quebec separatist party so there is very little chance that they will will work with the PM. So this is going to be a Liberal/NDP thing if they can agree on enough things.

      We need a better Conservative leader as Andrew was a limp noodle. How could he NOT win against the drama teacher?”

      Re-reading that, I see I wasn’t very clear.
      In each riding (“district”) there can be up to 7 names on each ballot this election cycle.
      Whoever wins the most VOTES in each riding wins that “seat”.
      In some ridings, there will be a clear major winner with an overwhelming majority of the vote.
      In other ridings, the vote will be really split. So someone could win that seat with 25% of the votes cast, but have the most votes of anyone on the ballot.
      In Quebec, I am guessing that the BQ are splitting off a signficant number of votes from the Liberals, lowering the Liberal’s overall % of the country-wide vote won, but in ridings they are competing with the BQ, they are winning more votes in each riding, allowing them to pick up seats in Quebec, even if the vote totals are close. Therefore, they will win more seats, but with a lower overall percentage of all votes cast.
      I hope that makes more sense. The election is won by the number of ridings (seats) each party wins, the vote percentage being reported are for all votes cast (“popular vote”).
      The problem is, the urban areas have many more ridings than the rural ones, so overwhelm them. All of northern Sask has one riding for example.

    Dramatic upsets as cabinet ministers, deputy Conservative leader, and opposition party leader lose their seats

    Leyland Cecco reports on the upsets in tonight’s results:

    Despite maintaining power, Trudeau has lost a number of cabinet ministers. The most stunning defeat was veteran lawmaker and public safety minister Ralph Goodale, who has represented Saskatchewan since 1993.

    In Alberta, both Amarjeet Sohi, the natural resource minister and Randy Boissonnault lost their seats, a result that means the neither Alberta nor Saskatchewan will have representation in Trudeau’s federal government as frustration in the western region of the country continues to amplify.

    The Conservative party also took a heavy loss, with deputy party leader Lisa Raitt losing her race to former Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden.

    Maxime Bernier, leader of the populist People’s Party of Canada, which critics have called xenophobic and racist, has lost his seat. Without Bernier’s much-needed win, the former Conservative minister’s newly-formed party will have no presence in the house of commons – making its future unclear.“

    At this stage the Liberal Party will finish with a lower share of the national vote than the Conservatives, but win around 35 more seats. But it will be the lowest overall share for the combined traditional parties with both on around 34% each.

                However, the Trudeau government’s refusal to acknowledge the extremism in some quarters of the Sikh community are troublesome. If a “white” homegrown extremist group had successfully carried out a mass casualty event that was the largest mass killing in Canadian history, we would never hear the end of it. Instead, extremist elements within the Sikh community are never talked about, and references to them are even expunged from official government documents discussing terrorism. People have a right to be concerned IMO.

                  Yes, Canada has a basic, light identity over the whole country. This is more heavily influenced by regional identity, dependent upon which ethnicities populated that region, and how long ago.

                  For example, my region in northern Ontario is heavily influenced by native, French (going back about 400 years), Finn, and Ukranian, and Italian ethnicities (going back about 100 years). The prairie provinces have strong Ukranian and American (homesteading act after 1900) influences. Southern Ontario has strong Brit, especially Scot, influences dating back about 200 years, but the more recent influences have come from southeast Asia and Jamaica. The maritime provinces are heavily Celtic, going back about 300-400 years. BC’s southern coastal area are heavily Asian and southeast Asian, with coastal native thrown in. Quebec…French/native going back about 500 years. Most areas 300 miles north of the US border (outside of BC and Ontario) are native/First Nations.

                  And that’s also how the electoral map generally looks, as well, including the urban vote.

        Yes. The problem is, the Liberals have been in charge of deciding who gets to immigrate and who gets granted asylum.

        Our church sponsored a Vietnamese family back in the day, and the majority of Vietnamese I have met are vehemently anti-communism, anti-socialism.

        If you look at the immigrant communities the Liberals are embracing, they are selecting communities that are historically more “community” based, tribal based, and will choose the security of socialism over individual freedom and responsibility. That deliberate shift does not bode well for the Conservatives, who have a huge hurdle to convince those communities that their philosophy and outlook is better. These groups also have a much higher fertility rate than native-born Canadians. Much higher. And they intend to win the demography wars.

        If you have been in Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa or Montreal lately for any extended period of time, you will quickly become aware that not only do these more recent groups of immigrants chosen by the Liberals elect to not integrate, they vote as a bloc and they vote overwhelmingly for socialist policies, expansion of government and government benefits, and for patronage perqs. It’s the Dem/Socialist splitter strategy.

        Do you really think the mainland Chinese that are coming your way are going to vote for Conservatives? They are aware the only reason they are getting “back door” “entrepreneur” and “student (aka tech spy)” visas is through the corrupt Liberals and the Chinese PRC want a foothold in Canada so are totally okay with this – for their elite and middle class.

        The immigrants of the past who came from the middle East/Levant were highly educated and independent thinkers who wanted to escape the tribalism and class structure. The Liberals are deliberately sourcing immigrants from the mid-East and sub Saharan Africa that are very tribal in outlook. Think of a million Ilhan Omars being brought to Canada over the objection of native born Canadians the Liberals label as “racists” for wanting to protect their own communities and opportunities for their own children. Do you really think you are ever going to get the Ilhan Omars and the Rashid Talibs of the world to vote “Conservative” ??

        Don’t count the BQ out just yet. They are separatists, but they are not on board with this plan. If anything, they have given those who lean Conservative a second chance to regroup and get their act together in what may be your last shot. You should thank them.

    Victorious Bloc Québécois leader addresses supporters

    The leader of Bloc Québécois Yves-François Blanchet is addressing supporters now.

    It has been a good day for his party, which is set to win 32 seats, more than tripling the party’s seat count compared to the 2015 election, making it the largest party after the Liberals and Conservatives.

    He praises his fellow candidates, saying “Three or four months ago when we were just crazy people, some crazy people said yes, and now some crazy people are going to the House of Commons.”

    “Those people set aside their professional life and they won with a solemn commitment to Quebecois.”

    He says: “No party will control the House of Commons.

    The Bloc Québécois does not want to form a government or participate in a government. However, if what is proposed will help Quebec, you can count on us. But if it hurts Quebec, the bloc will stand up and block it.”

    He says the party will talk with government about policies “except if we’re talking about putting more oil across Quebec,” to huge cheers, or if it means compromising Quebec’s language, values, and commitment to secular institutions.

    He adds that he does not think that the people of Canada voted for a minority government because they want to go back to the polls in 18 months.

    Blanchet says the desire for Quebec sovereignty runs deep within him but he does not go to parliament to undermine federalism. But Blanchet says he will not be servile and the future of Quebec may be “partners, but equals, and free”, “while we wait for Quebecois to choose another path”.

    To date Lib 155 – Conservative 122 – BQ 32 (nationalist anti open borders) Independant 1
    122+32+1 vs Lib 155 not that simple – Trudeau will not be up to the task of leading this.

    “ Jagmeet Singh of the leftwing NDP is addressing supporters.

    He says it has been an incredible night and an incredible journey, despite the fact his party’s 44 seats look set to be cut nearly in half (they are currently projected to win 25 seats).

    He congratulates Justin Trudeau, whom he said he had called earlier in the evening. He says he told Trudeau that the NDP would be working hard to deliver on the promises they had campaigned on.

    Singh says he was honoured to lead a team that was the “most diverse and most caring”, which represented women and LGBTQ people.

    He spends a lot of time thanking his team and talking about the people he met throughout the campaign who inspired him to campaign for affordable healthcare and medication and the rights of indigenous Canadians.

    The speech started in English, before moving to French as he addressed supporters in Quebec.

    He said through the campaign he had met a lot of people in Canada who are doing it tough and his message to them was: “New Democrats are going to Ottawa to fight for you.

    “The real winner of this election is not a leader or a party, the real leader of any election should be the people and that is Canadians,” he said.

    “Canadians have sent a clear message tonight that they want a government that works for them, not the rich and powerful, not for the well-connected.”

    “ Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer speak at the same time

    Andrew Scheer is giving a speech to supporters, thanking them. But just as he has started his speech, Trudeau has taken to the stage, cutting into Scheer’s speech, forcing news networks to cut from Scheer’s speech to Trudeau, with news reporters on CTV saying “a nasty campaign has bled into election night”, suggesting the unusual timing of the speech was deliberate from Trudeau’s campaign.”

      It’s a wrap. Trudeau is giving one of those anodyne liberal progressive speeches that are all to familiar.

      I’m done.
      Interesting election. Trudeau just inherited a herd of cats. Bonne chance. You will need it. 🤣🤣🤣
