Justin Trudeau, Liberals Win Landslide in Canada
Justin Trudeau ousted Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, when his Liberal Party won a landslide victory Monday night. The Liberal victory means a likely reevaluation of the controversial anti-terrorism act which we discussed on CLBR in June with Jim Hedger.
Mark Jeftovic, easyDNS.com CEO and Libertarian candidate, received only one percent of the vote in his district.
Trudeau’s landslide is yet another feather in the cap for HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver who defied Canadian law to urge Canadians to vote against Harper, whom he called a “dick head.”
Thanks to co-panelists Francine Ward and Heather Antoine and all those who attended our social media panel at the State Bar Annual Meeting in Anaheim.
Ken Mason, a friend of the show, was seriously injured when hit by a car while training for the Long Beach Marathon. Friends have organized a CrowdRise campaign to help defray his medical expenses.
