The election is over and it looks like fear loses, at least for now. Our former Conservative government, led by Stephen Harper, went down in flames to the Liberals, led by Justin Trudeau. Thus ends a decade of Conservative rule that was slowly turning Canada into the US. One of Trudeau's campaign promises was to replace Canada's first-past-the-post electoral system with some sort of proportional voting. This would prevent what has so frequently happened - a splitting of the left/central vote between the Liberals and the NDP (social democrats) allowing the Conservatives to win (sometimes big) with less than 50% of the votes. There were other promises but this is the one I want to see fulfilled first.
