2. K/R

He should not have called this election. The risk was too high and the Cons were playing with the far right.
This is a worldwide crisis.

As always: All Conservatives Are Bastards.

4. Yes we will have to see the final count. But certainly a sigh of relief for us.

7. It'll be a minority government. Not as bad as it could have been but not good.

 

Basically called for an election and nothing changed. They spent millions of dollars on a campaign during a pandemic to end up right back where they started. I don't think this will end in his resignation but it wouldn't shock me if it did.

9. A few seats swung to the Liberals or NDP because of the far right People's Party (like the Teaparty)

They siphoned enough votes from the Conservatives that kept them from winning some seats. Tomorrow, the mail in ballots get counted after they compare them with the in person lists to make sure people didn't vote twice. The last I heard, there were less than a million cast by mail which is fewer than the original expectation of 3 to 5 million. These votes could be crucial. Also, even though polls closed hours ago, some places still have people in line (University of BC, for instance). People know the importance of the election and aren't going home, even though the Liberals have been declared minority winners.
