OTTAWA — The election is finally over. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals lost their majority and are set to return to Ottawa with a minority government.
Despite its sleepy start, the last weeks of the 40-day campaign turned into one of the “dirtiest, nastiest” campaigns, according to Trudeau. Party leaders and voters alike complained about the panicked, partisan free-for-all after some parties resorted to slinging lies to consolidate votes.
Our bleary-eyed election team paid attention to it all. And there are some silver linings to consider.
