Not Quite the Darkest Timeline Yet

The 2019 federal election is over, after the least inspiring campaign I can remember. But the end result isn't so bad; at least there's a chance that the centrist Liberals might have to support some of the NDP's better ideas in exchange for support on the House of Commons. Perhaps more importantly, the alt-right People's Party of Canada took less than 2% of the popular vote and zero seats. Wouldn't it be nice to imagine that the populist tide washing over the world has already crested, and is now receding?

I can dream.
