And...I'm sure many would disagree that he was a "terrible mpp".
I put in coalition, but I realized right after this is more what I was thinking.I suspect Liberal minority will be the result with close working liaison with NDP - not sure if Libs will accept official coalition - time will tell. NDP has been very emphatic in saying they will not work with Conservatives. Extremely worriesome if Cons get in - but seems like some recent events have been causing significant drops in their polling numbers - fingers crossed.
It's enough to dizzy the sane ... imagine what it does to the wee common folk ... us bean a wee bit insane according to the powers!Just took another (compulsive) peek at the polls. This election should make everyone happy unless you're Green, or just a grumpy sort. Lib's edge too slight to mean much. So minority with ndp. What could go wrong?

Yes, Mr Scheer was playing fast and loose with reality at that point. I heard him say that, too. What scared me is the realization that every time in the last 2 weeks he opened his mouth, to me he sounded more and more like Trump.I heard some interesting commentary the other day - Sheer was claiming that if a minority gov, then the leader of the party with the most votes would become PM. This was stated as INCORRECT. Apparently Trudeau is still the PM until such time as he may resign - which he does not actually have to do even if minority government. Only a vote of non-confidence would remove him from PM office if he chooses not to resign & to continue as PM. Interesting.
Well, for starters, it's most seats, not most votes. Votes only count in the local riding to determines who wins the seat. Once they are elected, it's seats that matter. If Trudeau has one more seat, he's PM even if Scheer wins on popular vote. Similar to how Trump won the electoral vote but not the popular vote. The fun begins if there's a confidence vote, because in a close situation like that, esp. a tie, the G-G could invite the leader of the opposition to try to form a government, which is where coalitions come in.Sheer was claiming that if a minority gov, then the leader of the party with the most votes would become PM.
