Well, after a 12 hour day at the polls, and a stop in at the after-party to hear Gord Miller​, I have a couple things to say (big surprise, right?).

1) Harper is beaten. I think a lot of Canadians are relieved by that fact.

2) We've elected a majority Liberal government... one that has stated it won't repeal C-51, is in favour of pipelines, is on board for the secretive TPP, and is only slightly less likely than the Cons to change the system to Proportional Representation. So what have we gained? We got Harper out. That's really it.

3) Despite the numbers out of Guelph, I think the best man for the job lost. I think the politics of fear won. You might look at Trudeau's win as hopeful, but I don't see it that way. Canada has done what it always does - voted in either Cons or Libs. Maybe I'll be surprised, but we did not vote for real change. We voted for the status quo.

4) I'd do it all again. I had a lot of fun on the campaign, going door-to-door, putting up signs, writing letters and endorsements, and taking part in the video ads. My daughter had a blast coming out with me, and learned a lot about politics. It was, overall, a positive experience, and if Gord decides to run again, I'd be happy to help.

Maybe next time people will vote for hope instead of fear.

OK, I think it's clear that Justin is the next PM. Now we can finally admit to the world what we've been hiding: he's totally, totally adorable. He's 43 but looks 23. His father was Prime Minister way back in the day.
Some background on this video for my non-Canadian friends: Justin's father Pierre Trudeau was Prime Minister from 1968 to 1979. A large part of his term saw "Trudeaumania" and young girls screaming when he appeared, as if he was a rock star. (I remember that, as a little kid.) In 1971 he mouthed the words "fuck off" at the opposition MPs in the House of Commons. When asked, he implied he only said "fuddle duddle". When Justin was born in 1971, we joked that his middle name was "case" or "time". And that his little brother was named "All The Way In". :D
