It was a brutal campaign. The Cons and their bought media did all they could to destroy Justin Trudeau.
They smeared him over and over again. They whipped up hatred against him and encouraged violent mobs to attack him.
It was grotesque, it was criminal, it was totally un-Canadian.
But when the smoke cleared, he was still here.
And still the Prime Minister of Canada.
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has won enough seats in this 44th general election to form another minority government — with voters signalling Monday they trust the incumbent to lead Canada through the next phase of the pandemic fight by handing him a third mandate with a strong plurality.
Leaving the ugly Con Erin O'Toole, with his foul mouth as wide open as a bat cave, attacking Trudeau yet again.
Claiming Trudeau wants another election in eighteen months. Right.
While no doubt wondering whether he will still be around in eighteen months, and which Con will be the first to stick a knife in his back.
As for the hapless Jagmeet Singh, who also smeared Justin Trudeau and lied like a Con, he must be wondering why his desperate last minute appeal to 12-year-old girls failed so miserably.

And left him and his party still stuck in fourth place, and still going NOWHERE.
As for the sordid Con media, they are still trying to diminish the Liberal victory, by questioning why we had to have an election.
Even if that means ignoring the reason Trudeau was forced to call one.

Erm, was anyone paying attention to the five months of procedural warfare that ground the Commons to a halt this spring? #CBCNN
And by making a strong minority sound like a loss.
When a win, is a win, is a WIN.
But beyond the survival of our decent Prime Minister, and his wonderful thrashing of his grubby Con rivals, is the survival of his progressive agenda.
For his victory guarantees that a great plan for a national childcare program won't be killed by Erin O'Toole...
It will protect the rights of women and LGBT Canadians, from the sinister SoCons who would roll their rights back.
It will keep O'Toole and his filthy AmeriCons from flooding our cities with guns.
And most importantly it will ensure that the battle against climate change will continue, for the Liberal plan is by far the best plan.
Hailed by one expert after the other.
The Liberal plan isn’t perfect and it too has some unanswered questions in terms of policy implementation, but the answer to the biggest question in Canadian climate policy has already been answered. We know that Justin Trudeau and those around him are willing to fight for these policies, and that they understand the roles of the provinces while also embracing the role of the federal government in legislating for the country as a whole.
If climate change is your issue, you should vote for the party that understands both the challenge of climate change and the path to a solution. In this election, that’s the Liberals.
And even enthusiastically endorsed by the former leader of BC's Green Party.
Thrilled to see so many of my climate/ocean science colleagues in Canada stepping up to speak out in support of the @liberal_party climate plan. The climate crisis is front & centre in #elxn44. Only @JustinTrudeau has a plan that recognizes the scale of the crisis #cdnpoli— Andrew Weaver (@AJWVictoriaBC) September 20, 2021
As for me, I'm especially delighted that the toxic Trudeau haters have taken a boot in the face.
So that sweaty Cons like the Disaffected Lib, who has done so much damage to Progressive Bloggers with his tiresome toxic Trudeau hate...
Can look even more ridiculous, or look even more like a loser, if that's possible.
The other day he called me and my readers "Liberal zealots," in his usual vulgar manner, for trying to prevent the Cons from getting a majority. Can you believe that?
It's outrageous, and I'm not going to let him or anyone else stir up hatred against me and my readers. Not in a country which is rapidly becoming a sewer of bigotry.
But right now I just want to invite him, and any other dirty old Cons he knows, especially those who are suffering a lot, to join the celebrations.
So I can tell them.
We won, you lost.
Hey Kookarachas let's party!!!
