The news goes from bad to worse. In a tragic upset, Justin Trudeau, the leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, has unseated the peerless Stephen Harper. Harper was the last man standing — the last true leader of the free world.
The nine-year reign of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative Party came to a sudden and stunning end on Monday night at the hands of Justin Trudeau, the leader of the Liberal Party, according to projections by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and other networks. (NYT)
It is astonishing that the world learned nothing from the election of Obama. Justin Trudeau is to the left of Obama. What were Canadians thinking?
We can expect the following from Justin Trudeau in the short term.
1) Trudeau will almost immediately accept 25,000 Syrian refugees. here
2) Trudeau will almost immediately normalize relations with Iran and end all military operations against ISIS…. here
3) Trudeau will deactivate Bill C-24 that removes the citizenship Canadians who are terrorists…. here
4) Trudeau will repeal part of the anti terrorist legislation Bill C-51…. here
5) Trudeau will give your piece of crap President another avenue to attack Israel via the G8, since Harper will no longer be there to block Obama’s anti Israel policy……here
A recent poll said that 7 out of 10 Canadians want change. Well this is the change that they will get……here

UPDATE: A gloating CBC credited the Obama Ground Team sent to Canada last year to ensure election victory for the Liberals in tonight’s outcome. Members of Obama’s election team—who revolutionized data mining for political campaigns—shared it with Trudeau, and the rest is now history. (more here)
UPDATE 2: Ezra Levant’s Rebel media writes:
ustin Trudeau just won a majority government. Get ready for the pain.
He promised to raise taxes, raise spending and put our country back into debt.
He vowed to kill the Northern Gateway pipeline and to bring in new carbon taxes.
He said he’d abandon our military mission against ISIS terrorists, and take in 25,000 Syrian migrants by Christmas.
Do you doubt he’s going to do it?
His ideas will be a disaster. Government will grow. Personal freedom will shrink. Our national security will be weakened. And our foreign policy will tilt far left. Trudeau is the candidate who said he admires China for its “basic dictatorship”, and promises to normalize relations with Iran.
And who’s going to stop him?
The political left controls most provincial legislatures and the courts. Every university and NGO pushes to the left.
But the worst is the mainstream media. For nine years, they weren’t just watchdogs — they were mad dogs. I called it “Harper Derangement Syndrome”.
Well, after watching the media’s pro-Liberal bias in this campaign, do you doubt that they’re about to become Trudeau’s lapdogs?
So who will hold the Liberal government to account? Who will shine a light of public scrutiny on what Trudeau does — his fan club at the CBC?
The Sun News Network is gone. The National Post is in disarray. The Conservative Party itself will now be consumed with a divisive leadership race.
