Post One way to conduct a national election
Pheu! It's finally here - after six grueling weeks - federal election day in Canada.

Anyone out there just a little envious? :bananadance:

I see Obama has endorsed Trudeau, I can understand the desire to put an election behind you so in that I am jealous :wink: . Question: I see it’s a close race between Trudeau and Scheer, are the smaller parties going to be good for liberals or conservatives? . Is Canada so evenly split politically that partisanship is paralyzing in the manor that we see happening in the UK with Brexit?.

Canada is not a bellwether for the U.S. but we do share the USMCA, I prefer a more progressive great white north, it may be needed to help keep in check the mess that is swirling around D.C. .

The liberals and Conservatives, based on polls, are in a virtual tie at around 31%. Historically, a party required with a minimum 38.5% to form a majority. The New Democrats are to the left of the Liberals and the Greens are to the left on many issues, although they seem to draw votes from both progressive and moderately conservative voters.

The Bloc is a federal party based only in Quebec. Their purpose is to push the Quebec agenda at the federal level with the ultimate aim of separation from the rest of Canada, although separation wasn't an issue in this election. They're expected to make big gains in this election.

I'm writing this one hour before the results begin pouring in, but the pundits are calling for a Liberal minority government. If that is the case, they would be looking for support from the New Democrats and any Greens that may be elected. I believe the Liberals would rather not be associated with the Quebec party bent on separation. If the Conservatives are in a minority position with the most votes, who knows?
