    Last ditch ectoral reform now? Honestly I don’t see another way to keep pipsqueak from getting a majority.

    The fact that the Liberals are losing isn’t that surprising, but the fact that a no-plan, know-nothing dipshit like PP seems to be winning is.

    Not paying attention to housing costs is really really going to have fucked this country over if he gets into power.

        Yeah I think the problem with the previous conservative leaders was that they tried to speak to conservative rationality. PP just goes for conservative emotionality.

    The last time this riding was held by a non-Liberal was 1993. (If you exclude the highly affluent areas of Toronto and the suburbs [both of which lean Conservative], Torontonians do not elect many Conservatives.) This is indeed worrying vis-a-vis the likelihood of a Conservative (majority) government in 2025

      Wait, was the any doubt about a conservative majority even before this result?

      Welp… It’s the CBC after all. They’re pretty much a mouthpiece for the Liberals. So I’m not surprised they picked that kind of response to publish in their article.

      Edit: Wait… You said Global?

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Conservative candidate Don Stewart has won the longtime federal Liberal stronghold of Toronto-St. Paul’s, a stunning result that raises questions about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s future.

    The Liberals’ poor showing in a stronghold like this could prompt some soul-searching for Trudeau, who has seen his popularity plummet as inflation, the cost of living crisis, high home prices and surging immigration levels drive voter discontent.

    David Coletto, chair and CEO of Abacus Data, said he believes the Liberals need to win by 10 points or more to give Trudeau a credible path forward.

    Speaking to CBC News from Stewart’s election night party before any results were released, Byrne said Toronto-St. Paul’s “will probably stay on the Liberal side of things.”

    The NDP candidate, Amrit Parhar, struggled to make much of a mark with about 11 per cent of the vote in Toronto-St. Paul’s — a worse performance than what the party achieved in the last general election.

    The agency said it was bogged down because there were dozens of candidates on the unwieldy, nearly metre-long ballot — some of whom are proportional-representation activists running as a protest to the country’s first-past-the-post voting system.
