What happened last night?

The conservatives were defeated by a party lead by the dumbest Prime Minister Canada will ever have.

That’s what happened.

I don’t know why for certain, others may, but that won’t stop me from taking a stab at it anyway.

The ususal suspects certainly played a role.

When you promise the national broadcaster a truckload of money you can be assured of favourable campaign coverage, complete with eye watering double standards.

Canada’s media is like an incestuous family with the CBC as MotherCorp, they’re all in on it.

All parties, all leaders have a shelf life.

The CPC lost its populist appeal, they became as all governing parties must, “the government”.

My personal tipping point was the TFW scandal, a fiasco which continues to this day. (Note I did vote for them last night just the same.)

Outsourcing immigration to corporate interests allowing them to suppress wages was probably a bad idea in retrospect.

I am surprised that the TFW failed to register as an election issue.

This is likely because it touched on the 3rd rail, well one of the multiple 3rd rails that criss-cross Canada’s political landscape; immigration.

Elections and the business of governance are all about divide and conquer and in Canada that’s achieved by official multiculturalism.

All the parties use this con-game to pay off their designated ethnic strongmen in return for votes, except they call it outreach not bribery.

They will claim that such “diversity” makes us stronger.

That same “diversity” has made Great Britain so “strong” that the government has launched a program to root out Muslim extremists who have infiltrated the public sphere.

Others trace their loss of faith and the CPC demise to their treatment of the military, as valid a reason as any, each one personal.

There are as many reasons as there are Liberal MP’s I imagine.

    Brian Mulroney probably summed it up as good as anyone last night when he said Justin won, because he’s not Harper.

    Just like Mulroney said he won, because he wasn’t Pierre Trudeau.

    It’s all about change and the short attention span of most voters.

    I have full confidence in Justin making the voters sick of him.

    • I do as well, he is an embarrassment.

      • Barry Thornton

        I don’t think so, in six months the Censorship Bureau of Canada will be playing the “Blame Harper” game and Canadians being Canadians most will go along with it.

    • Martin B

      Yup, change & short attention spans. Bear in mind that Harper had won 3 elections in a row, winning 4 in a row would be a superhuman feat under the best of circumstances.

      • Clink9

        Ya, we can analyze it to death but most people voting really don’t follow the issues. If it feels good, they just do it like eating a candy.

        And Turdo is the master of image and fell goodness.

      • Alain

        Have you forgot the era of the Liberal dynasty?

        • Clausewitz

          You mean Canada’s “Natural” governing party? I try to forget that era as much as possible.

      • Alain

        A change in leadership prior to the last minute could have made a difference, of course depending on who took over.

  • 2maxpower

    you underestimate the left/socialists/communists. the obama administration, the UN and the Canadian media installed justine.

    justines platform consisted of 2 things. legalizing marijuana and full access to abortions. other then that he said only a few things which should have shown people what we will get.

    more government, more muslim “refugees” more money to CBC for his propaganda and more spending (which really means more taxing).

    yet people voted for him and that is the really scary part that so many of the people you pass on the street actually voted for a retard.

    • Exile1981

      Which begs the question: who is dumber Turdeau with his double digit IQ or the people who voted for him because they wanted legalized pot?

      • 2maxpower

        the people who voted for him …one would need to be stupider than justine to vote for him.

    • “more government, more muslim “refugees” more money to CBC for his propaganda and more spending (which really means more taxing).”

      All of those things will come to pass, I am under no illusions.

      • Clausewitz

        I expect the first things done in their first budget will be; 8% GST, 10 cent per liter Carbon Tax on Oil and Gas both for transportation and home heating, full taxation on all tax free savings accounts, the cancellation of income sharing, and the raising of the yearly immigration quota’s for his political base the middle eastern Canada hating Jihadi sympathizers. We’re screwed. Next up, Agenda 21.

      • Millie_Woods

        The next conservative prime minister HAS to get rid of the CBC.

    • Waffle

      We’re Canadian. We have proved time and time again that we like being conned by stylish snake-oil salesmen (and women) and we just love being taxed.

  • canminuteman

    Because he is cute and we let women vote. In Canada we don’t have the sort of exit polls they do in the US so I can’t prove it but I suspect that if only men who owned property and were over 30 could vote, this is not the government would have.

    To paraphrase Marx, the contradictions within democracy will kill democracy.

    • There was I suspect a bit of the Rob Ford appeal in Justin.

      We voted for Rob because he pissed off the establishment.

      Let’s face it Harper became the “establishment”.

      • 2maxpower

        Harper’s mistake was not to frame justine as a loser and an idiot.

        the conservatives attacked justine in the wrong manner. he didn’t make the obvious conclusion that he was unfit now and in th4e future. instead they kept putting justine in their ads saying he wasn’t ready. justine will never be ready and it is because he is an idiot and that should have been the campaign.

        Harper could have done much more on the conservative front but I do think he is also a puppet of the NWO either by force or willingly.

        mainly he should have sold the CBC the day he got the majority.

      • Clausewitz

        But in reality the Shiny Pony is the epitome of establishment. People are so stupid.

        • The downside to winning an election is that you become the Gub’ment.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Yes, women tend to vote for the candidate they would rather sleep ,with.

      • 2maxpower

        women tend to vote socialist, it is their nature due to natural selection. they want to be taken care of and anyone who offers to do that will get their vote. (yes I know that doesn’t mean all of them but it does mean most)

  • Millie_Woods

    He may turn out to be the most destructive PM in Canadian history but Joke Lark will probably keep his title as the dumbest, followed by Jim Prentiss.

    • As Xavier noted, he does not hate Canada, unlike Obama who actively despises the USA.

      • Millie_Woods

        I guess we’ve got that going for us.

  • New Centurion

    The media will allow the TFWP scandal to die a quiet death as long as JT is in. Any criticism would force JT to make some hard choices between the majority of Canadians who think it’s a complete scam (which it is), and immigrants/ cheapskate business owners who use it as a means to supress wages and to bring relatives over from the old country. Of course the Liberals, like the Conservatives, will take full advantage of the political capital they get from the program to garnish support from both the immigrant community and business interests yet you’ll hear nary a peep about it in the MSM because it would hurt their man.

    A bit of topic, but that is an awsome photo.
