15.5 million votes and counting. Probably going to be well over 20 million, I'd imagine.

Liberal majority, here's to hoping Trudeau doesn't fuck it up.

omg, how can a party win with just 39% of the vote. this is so unfair! if you add up the next two parties, it's over 50%!!!111


j/k. I'm glad they got a majority -- now he can govern without any handcuffs. this is a huge benefit to fptp -- a gov't can actually get shit done. whether people agree with it or not, will be decided on the next election.

I'm happy harper is resigning -- PLEASE CONSERVATIVES DON'T FUCK IT UP BY VOTING FOR SOMEONE IN THE OLD BOYS CLUB.

i am being 100% cynical here, but from what I gather on social media, the message was "Harper out", "anyone but Harper", etc.

So, Harper is out - but do people genuinely want Trudeau? In the context of the choices had, perhaps it was the least bad choice, but are people genuinely seeing this as the beginning of a new, positive chapter, or just "Harper out"?

edit: economically, this is a negative from the FX view. In last 24 hrs CAD has weakened against USD. Not surprising purely from Cons vs. Liberal economic policy standpoint

Do these have to be mutually exclusive?

absolutely not, but from what I see, hear, etc. it seems to be that people are far more concerned with the latter than the former.

i would always want it weighted way more heavily to the former, with the latter being icing on the cake

And after all the "he's just not ready" ads, I'm imagining this will be PM Trudeau on his first day

Agreed with 4444. If people were mostly concerned with the political platform and what they mean for the future of Canada, there wouldn't be the need for the social media hype train for "team lets get rid of Harper".

I am happy that a lot more people exercised their right to vote, but view this election as a dud in terms of voting based on platform and vision.

A question off-topic - what is the actual benefit of running for/starting a fringe (yet official) political party?

There was a candidate from "the Lennnist-Marxist Party of Canada" - in New Westminster, of all places lol.

Is there some sort of "perk" that being a part of an official (and mildly hilarious) political party? There's the pirate party, the rhino party, the work-less party, etc.
Or do these people just believe so strongly in one thing that no other established party has, and they just start their own?

hopefully Liberals will change this flawed system, but seems unlikely

This is like asking by CiC insists on posting on this forum despite very little positive encouragement.

Perhaps it's because they have the time? Perhaps it's because they're exercising their rights and freedoms? Perhaps it's because they actually believe what they're saying?

And somewhere in between that, is what makes this country of ours great. The ability to do it for all those reasons and more.

fixed that to show perspective.

Is the left getting what it wants with Trudeau? When you pool all the votes for the left-leaning parties, they represent the majority of voters. Even when Harper won a majority, the majority of voters were not being represented. So he may not be who the majority of voters want, but he is at least closer to what they want than Harper was.

That's what he has always been good at, even when he was in his early 20's. However, many criticizes that while he has a very good sense on the emotional appeal side, he lacks the raw capabilities to follow through with real, concrete, and practical actions.

In other words, people are saying he is all talk. I do not support Trudeau even though I voted Liberals this time. But for Canada's sake, I hope he will prove them wrong.

(But I seriously question whether he can / will...)

I wonder about the exact same thing as well. I was under the impression that to even register as a candidate, you need to post a deposit of some sort, and if you don't get enough votes, the deposit gets confiscated, so to speak.

So if you know you have zero chance of even making the minimal cut, why even bother? It's cold, hard cash we're talking about here.

It's not about votes.

Elections Canada Online | Political Financing Handbook for Candidates and Official Agents (EC$20155) – July$2015

Quote:
Returning the candidate's nomination deposit

Chapter 1 of this handbook discusses how to become a candidate. Among the requirements in the candidate's nomination process is the payment of a $1,000 nomination deposit when the candidate's nomination paper is filed with the local returning officer.

To receive a refund of the nomination deposit after the election, the candidate or the candidate's official agent has to:

return all unused or cancelled tax receipts as well as a copy of each used tax receipt to Elections Canada within one month after election day, and
fulfill the reporting requirements set out in the Canada Elections Act and Chapter 4 of this handbook

I guess you could say my family is fairly for the Conservatives, but at the same time we do know a few candidates quite personally as well.

I hope Mr. Trudeau does make a positive change.
