Trudeau lost the popular vote, he couldn't even get 1/3 of Canadians to vote for him.

 Greens were down to two.

This is the untold story here, in 2019 the Greens had 1,189,607 votes, but in 2021 they only got 372,966. They lost over 800,000 votes.

Meanwhile the PPC went from 294,000 in 2019 to a whopping 818,000 in 2021.

What the Greens lost the PPC gained.

The numbers may change a little in the days to come. Mail counting starts in earnest on Wednesday.

Currently, Trudeau and the Liberals are leading in 158 seats across the country, most of those are settled, but in eight ridings the party is leading by a thin margin, with thousands of votes from mail-in ballots still needing to be counted.

O’Toole advertised himself a year ago as a “true-blue Conservative.” He became Conservative Party leader with a pledge to “take back Canada,”

And, in proving himself to be a true Canadian, accepted the results of the democratic election.

Pretty cool to see right-wing posters in this topic suddenly pivot from "that's the system, it's what it is, don't complain" to "actually only the popular vote should matter". I'm glad to see that they've come around.

Pretty cool to see right-wing posters in this topic suddenly pivot from "that's the system, it's what it is, don't complain" to "actually only the popular vote should matter". I'm glad to see that they've come around.

Until they swing back, obviously.

O'Toole the fool, neither fish nor fowl. If you stand in the middle of the road you get knocked down by traffic in both directions. You need to differentiate yourself. If you are just a weak imitation of Trudeau people will vote for the original, not the copy.

Canadian conservatives need a leader like Trump to energize their party against Trudeau’s globalist fascism.

Canadian conservatives need a leader like Trump to energize their party against Trudeau’s globalist fascism.

But Trump ended in objective disaster. He served one term and got thrashed in the election, losing the house and senate along the way.

This can’t be the model to follow.

It failed. Canada’s conservatives need a winning model.

Trudeau won three elections, Trump just one.

Heh, the rhetoric makes my ears bleed!

Trump never won the popular vote - so that one they have in common
