Canada Never Left

The only part of the orderly transition that has caused me concern is the apparent return of the hubris of the Liberal Party. The day after winning the election, Prime Minister Trudeau proclaimed to the world that 35 million Canadians were now "back" and the team behind him seemed to revel in that line. Such a bold claim within hours of an election win deserves some scrutiny to find out where Canada had been if we were now back.
