Canadian Voters on Quaaludes

See: Quaids in Canada

"The election became something of a referendum on Harper’s approach to government, which, in the view of his critics, has been heavy-handed and often focused on issues important to core Conservative supporters, mostly in the West, rather than to much of the population.

The focus of the campaign fluttered among issues, including a scandal over Conservative senators’ expenses; antiterrorism measures Harper introduced; pensions; the stagnation of the economy brought about by plunging oil prices; the government’s handling of refugees; the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact; and Harper’s attempts to ban the wearing of face veils known as niqabs during citizenship ceremonies....

"The showing was the Liberals’ best in 40 years, and reestablished the party as a national force, rather than one that relied heavily on one province, Ontario, for support.

Looks like the New Democrats were on the wrong side of the fix and the more e$tablished "liberals" benefited from the narrative.

By the looks of it, new Canadian leader is social media’s dream

I'm of the opinion that I'm just not interested in the me$$anger there. Sorry.
