If Trudeau can't make this minority work I'd be really interested in seeing her run for the leadership if she even wanted to go back in the fold.

Unfortunately a coalition doesn't make a lot of sense right now. The Liberals won enough seats that they can just form a government and negotiate with multiple parties to pass legislation as it's needed. Want a new pipeline? Ask the Tories for support. Better stuff for Quebec? Bribe the Bloc. Progressive Social agenda? The NDP will vote for it.

The Bloc obtaining more seats than the NDP.  Don’t think anyone in this country is too happy about that.  Blanchet in his speech mentioned the Quebec Nation, hints of separatist talk if it could be interpreted that way.

That blackface/brownface scandal was truly the last straw for Justin Trudeau.  It crystallized people’s opinion of him no matter how he explained it.  In Alberta & the prairies, they were probably going to vote Conservative anyways, but that scandal furthered the nail in the coffin, so to speak.

According to the media, no one is happy with the new political map.  Trepidation is more like it at the moment.

At least, Justin Trudeau is still our PM, albeit in a minority government.  Looks like it’s time to roll up the sleeves and tackle the outstanding issues & grievances a Mari Usque ad Mare.
