Well, one nice thing to say about the Conservatives tonight is their candidate beat Maxime Bernier.

It is going to be very frustrating as a NDP voter to see a party that gets 1/3rd of their votes have more MPs and 30+ more than the Greens who also outpoll them.

Maybe this result can kick Trudeau into real election reform.

You're an NDP guy?  That explains how, despite our occasional lovers' spats, deep down I love you.

Although I could go for the Greens.  (Not here in the States, mind you.)

So, looking at the ON results maps, the northern areas are NDP/Green-ish?  Interesting.

This is true but it’s possible the NDP side with the Liberals creating a coalition government that will gain some modicum of power. Probably will be able to attain some meaningful concessions.

The NDP started out as a Prairie/Farmer's party and they do have a pretty good rural/agrarian support as well as good support among indigenous voters.

Jody Wilson-Raybauld is looking like she will win as an Independent.
