Canada Loses a Moral Compass

Apparently antagonized by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s sometimes-brash leadership style and itching for change after almost a decade of conservative rule, Canadians have delivered Harper a surprising and decisive defeat at the polls. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau will almost certainly reverse a host of domestic Canadian policies, as Trudeau will much more likely pander to various ethnic and identity constituencies in a manner that may win votes, but which will ultimately dampen business development and economic potential as it increases regulation and bloats Canada’s budget.
