Rump lost the popular vote bt 2.5 million.
Trudeau by a few thousand..hardly comparable.

The election is over..stop whining and complaining.

B.C. is not interested in Western separatism.
The Libs, NDP, Greens won tons of votes on the prairies.
Separatism talk, anywhere, is a waste of time and money!

Time to move on quickly to actions.

Unless Saskatchewan and Alberta decide to separate. Then BC would be VERY interested.

If Saskatchewan and Alberta ever decided to go it alone, BC would be crazy not to join them. Because being a lone Province isolated from the rest of Canada would definitely not be in our best interest.

Now that the election is over, Kenney has to release the budget he's been hiding. So we'll see how those backwater bumpkins feel about higher electrical rates, higher municipal property taxes, school fees, and health user fees, service cuts . . .

Gotta pay for those $4.5 billion Big Oil tax cuts somehow.

Then we'll see how they feel about separating.

Who's crazier BC or those 2 provinces who choose to truly be landlocked?

Clinton’s final tally came in at 65,844,610, compared to Donald Trump’s 62,979,636, with a difference of 2,864,974.

According to CTV's election results as of early Tuesday morning, the Conservatives took 6,139,185 of Canada's nearly 18 million ballots cast, claiming 34.4 per cent of the popular vote compared to the Liberals' 33.1 per cent -- a difference of more than 243,000 votes.


Considering the US population is approximately 9-10 times that of Canada I'd say the popular vote comparison is actually quite valid.

Actually, being two lone landlocked provinces whose only industries/exports are grain and oil . . . and whose southern neighbour is self-sufficient in both . . .

. . . they would be the crazy ones.

I wish these dullards would stop blaming their problems on 4 years of Trudeau and start blaming it on the 44 years of Conservative rule that failed to diversify their economies and prepare them for the end of oil.

Canada has 5 parties that received significant popular vote and divvied-up 100% of the pie.

Four progressive parties and one regressive party--the CPC.

What matters is nearly 7 out of 10 Canadians voted for a progressive party.

I predict the aggressively progressives here will double down on deriding Albertans, stereotyping them, dismissing their concerns and treating them with contempt, further dividing the country.

I predict the aggressively progressive parties will force the minority Liberals to focus enough of our resources on "climate emergency" related policies to significantly impede Canada's ability to rely on our own agriculture and energy, making us increasingly beholden to other nations whose economies we will support while devaluing our own.

I predict the aggressively progressives will collectively condemn the Conservatives for not cooperating while these so-called progressive parties work together to undermine Canada's economic well-being, and collude to implement policies which, like ethanol, are inhumane and ineffective, and, like solar, rely on resources sourced from countries using child labour and environmentally destructive practices.

I predict the aggressively progressives will, in the following election campaign, blame the Harper government for the growing deficit, insisting he laid the foundation for what happened to the average Canadian's standard of living.

What do you mean by "progressive" exactly? Who decided that packaging a bunch of really really bad ideas together and re-labeling them something supposedly positive makes them less stinky?

I would say what matters is that the popular vote was won by a Party that isn't "regressive", whatever that even means, but has policies that actually make sense, instead of drunken sailor spending pie in the sky fairy tale fear-mongering nonsense. Thank goodness for that! There is still hope for Canada!

I predict that the phrase "progressive" will go the way of the do-do as people figure out that the term "progressive" has been usurped by a bunch of economy-destroying imbeciles. I also predict that you will have 100% accuracy on your predictions!

I predict there will be a lot of sour grapes from the losing Libs, who finally lost their majority, and thank goodness for that. Last night was the election I was hoping for in 2015. Justin and his gang of Tides Foundation people do not deserve a majority.
