Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will get to form another government based upon Monday night's results of voting for the Canadian Parliament.
Though Trudeau and his Liberal Party failed to reached the massive victory attained back in the 2015 elections, Canadians, in giving him another win at the polls, have contributed some solace to a world currently embroiled in political misconduct, controversy and upheaval from the United States (US), to the United Kingdom (UK), Spain, Syria, Turkey, Bolivia, Chile, Lebanon, Hong Kong and elsewhere.
Despite some controversy surrounding his history and his political dealings from alleged racial depictions to political pressure to effect a desired change, Canadians have bet heavily on Trudeau as the best candidate to lead the relatively safe and peaceful country into tomorrow and beyond.
Results have Trudeau's Liberal Party winning 157 of the 338 seats in the Canadian Parliament, short of the 170 needed for a majority, but enough to facilitate a minority government either with another party or via legislative co-sharing support with another party on the basis of fiscal and social matters. The Conservatives won 121 seats as the main opposition, while the Quebec bloc made gains and the NDP failed to make any large gains.
Trudeau's liberalism outperformed his misgivings and his victory is testimony of the respect he holds in Canada and across the globe, especially after being endorsed by the rational President Barack Obama.
The Prime Minister's return to the leadership of Canada is certainly solace amid a chaotic world of division sparked by the actions of US President Donald Trump; the UK's Boris Johnson and his Brexit scheme; betrayal of the Kurdish people and the unfolding humanitarian crisis; Turkish advancement into Syria; and other upheavals ranging from Chile, to Lebanon, to Hong Kong, to Spain and elsewhere.
I wish the Canadian people and Prime Minister Trudeau the very best of prosperity.
