Who just might become Canada’s next Prime Minister[TheChristians.com] Do not be surprised if, when you wake up on the morning of Tuesday October 23, 2019, that Justin Trudeau is still the prime minister of Canada, meaning that we will have to endure another four years of his dizzy government. “Is this what you hoped to see, Byfield?” somebody will no doubt ask me. No, it certainly was not. “Then what happened?”

Two things, I think. Those responsible for building up the public image of the Tory leader Andrew Scheer tried at first to present him as another lovable mushy haired-brain like Justin. Well, it didn’t work. Scheer is nothing whatever like Justin. He thinks things through before he acts and talks. Justin is all about “feelings.” Second, Justin is an exhibitionist. He has an almost child-like fascination with “dressing up.” Hence, the black-face idiocies, something totally incomprehensible to Scheer and most other males over the age of about twelve.
However, the conditions that hold most heavily against Scheer had nothing to do with the man himself. Canada has long been going through a quiet but seemingly irresistible swing from middle to left, most evident among young people. It did not just happen. It was planned and executed with as efficacy almost admirable, were it not so poisonous. For the last four or five decades it has been worked on our kids through the schools, It has been far more successful than most conservatives realize until they see a tell-tale electoral leftward swing in the youth voting patterns.
Notice too the poll results registered about a week before the election. Ipsos showed 35 per cent of the respondents regarding Justin as making the best prime minister with Scheer polling at 30 per cent. The commentators saw this as an almost even left-right split. Except for one thing. The NDP’s leader Jagmeet Singh came in at an unexpected 15 per cent. Adding that to the Liberal total we have a 50 per cent leftist vote, half the electorate, and well above the 30 per cent on the Tory side. So much for the supposed fifty-fifty split.
Think also of the implications for what was then the on-coming general election, to follow a week later. If the Ipsos poll were to have actually foretold the election outcome, no party would have been able to form a majority government. So the governor general would ask Justin, as the incumbent prime minister, to try to create a coalition. Under Parliamentary rules, if no party achieves a majority — and even if the Tories win more seats — Justin still stays on as prime minister.
In such a situation Justin would, of course, approach Singh, the third man with 15 per cent behind him. No, Singh piously declared last week, he had no interest whatever in joining a coalition with the Liberals. You can bet he hadn’t — until, that is, Justin meets Singh’s price. Which, when fully paid and with Singh as deputy prime minister, will make Canada one of the most socialist countries in the world.
And what will the future hold for the Liberal-NDP coalition? It will last one term, I would expect, much like the late lamented NDP government in Alberta. Its defeat in the following election will no doubt see the end of the reign of Trudeau the Second, and the coronation of Jagmeet the First, who will resign from the dissolving coalition and run for the Liberal leadership. My bet is that he’ll win it. I’ll no doubt be gone from this world by then, of course, but I want you to remember that you read it here first.
