We asked on the AM640 Facebook page “why do you think the Liberals scored a majority government in Canada last night? Was it Harper’s attack on the niqab? Trudeau’s promise to confront Russia?”
Here’s what you had to say:
Chris: It’s all about weed! All for it as long as they tax it like my smokes and booze.
Amanda: Young naive voters were promised legalized marijuana. Instead of being concerned with real issues like tax hikes, the threat of losing CPP & CCB or seeing that this man actually wants to run Canada on a deficit. Nope…the young vote was more concerned with pot than our parents security or our own future securities. Bad move guy. Bad move!
Sean: Because people are still stupid enough to fall for that ‘I’m only gonna tax the rich’ bullshit. Trudeau IS the rich.
Matt: It doesn’t help when our “unbiased” media is donating to the Liberals. Not to mention the cash injection our state broadcaster is about to get from electing the Liberals.
Will: NDP collapse nationwide, and ability to win suburban ridings that went Conservative last time.
Paolo: His speech was great. “Conservatives are not our enemies they are our neighbours..” also he proved that American style attack ads do not work in canada. This guy has class to spare in comparison
Andy: Voter fatigue. Canadian voters at the federal level are very fickle and few parties last are elected for a fourth term.
Chris: Social media won this election. The Liberals could have ran with a cheese sandwich as their leader and won.
Victoria: He won on great hair and promises of pot. The conservatives lost on Harper. More people voted against Harper than for anything.
Laurel: For me it was the childish attack ads that PCs had all their candidates rehash as sound bites over and over out of context….the hijab controversy over and over…lost me there they dug own grave
Lella: It’s a familiar name.
Catherine: It was Harper’s hanging out with Rob and Doug Ford in the final days. Sealed the deal.
