Now, let's get this right. Justin Trudeau's Liberals got 30 per cent of the vote, slightly less in total numbers than Andrew Scheer's Tories. Because of FPTP that translates into a minority win for the Libs.
Yet you would never know it from Trudeau's victory speech last night in which he spoke about some grand 'mandate' he had received from the Canadian people. If seven of ten voters don't support you where do you find this mandate, how far up?
It was like Sports Day at the pre-school. Everybody got a blue ribbon last night for participating and, to hear them tell it, everybody was a winner.
No wonder Canada is so screwed up. I'm with Suzuki and Stephen Lewis on that score.
