The once great country of Canada is a joke. They have once again elected Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister of Canada. Expect Canada to go into decline in the years to come, as Justin Trudeau will continue to enact his far-Left agenda. What a tragedy.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberals win most seats in 2021 federal election
By CityNews, September 20th, 2021
OTTAWA (CityNews) ─ Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau secured enough votes during Canada’s pandemic election to earn his third term as prime minister, CityNews has projected.
With results still trickling in Monday night, it is unclear if the Liberals will form a majority or minority government.
The Liberals would need to win 170 seats in the 338-seat House of Commons to have a majority.
At dissolution, the Liberals had 155 seats, the Conservatives 119, the Bloc Quebecois 32, the NDP 24 and the Greens two. There were also five independents and one vacancy.
Trudeau pulled the plug on his minority government on Aug. 15 − two years after the Liberals were reduced to a minority.
The Liberal leader’s night began with a weaker performance compared to the 2019 election. The Liberals were down three seats in Atlantic Canada while the Conservatives won nine − more than doubling the four they won in 2019.
The Liberals held 27 of those Atlantic Canada seats heading into the election.
But results from Quebec and Ontario were enough to give Trudeau’s Liberals a win in the 2021 federal election.
By late Monday night, the Liberals led in 148 ridings, the Conservatives in 103, the Bloc Quebecois in 28 and the NDP in 22.
Election results slow to come in, long lineups
Results were slow to trickle in as polls closed across the country.
Part of that was due to a larger number of mail-in ballots. Elections Canada said nearly 6.8 million people voted early, most of them at advance polls more than a week ago, and the rest through special ballots cast by mail or at Elections Canada offices.
There were also several reports of long lineups at polling stations. Fewer polling stations were open overall since many schools were not used as voting locations due to the pandemic.
Trudeau cast his ballot in his riding of Papineau, Que., Monday morning with his three children at his side. His wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, who already voted, waited by the entrance of the polling station.
Trudeau’s youngest son, Hadrien, 7, held his father’s hand and accompanied him to the voting booth before the two pushed the ballot into the box together.
When Trudeau called the election on Aug. 15 − two years after the Liberals were reduced to a minority − he asked Canadians to decide who was best suited to finish the fight against COVID-19 and lead the country’s recovery.
But mixed results in polls over the 38-day campaign quickly showed the Liberals’ hope of turning a minority government into a majority was not a fait accompli.
Opposition leaders relentlessly pounded away at Trudeau’s “selfish” choice to put his quest for a majority ahead of the interests of Canadians in the middle of a deadly pandemic.
With Afghanistan falling to the Taliban the very day Trudeau called the election − leaving thousands of Canadians and Afghans who had helped Canada’s military mission stranded in the country − only exacerbated anger over his timing.
Battling the Conservatives for votes
As Liberal support slumped, O’Toole’s Conservatives picked up some momentum. Trudeau attempted to drive a wedge over issues like abortion, private health care and mandatory vaccinations for federal workers.
The Liberal platform logged new spending at $78 billion over the next five years with no plan to balance the budget.
One of the new promises was to establish regulations under the Canadian Health Act to govern the accessibility for sexual and reproductive health, such as abortion.
The platform also included a plan for a ban on assault weapons, making a gun buyback program mandatory, and $1 billion will be given to provinces to help ban handguns in their jurisdictions.
The Liberal plan also included $10-a-day childcare and sick leave.
When it comes to the ongoing battle against COVID-19, Trudeau said his party supports proof-of-vaccination credentials and mandatory vaccines for people travelling on planes and trains.
The victory puts Trudeau back in a position he has held since the 2015 federal election, which saw the Liberals win a 184-seat majority.
