Canada's longest-ever election campaign resulted in a Liberal majority, significant losses of NDP seats, and the Conservatives as the Official Opposition. At the same time, Alberta elected an NDP government.

In the lead-up to the aforementioned longest election campaign ever we saw what is now our former government drawing on racist rhetoric and action and fiscal showmanship in an attempt to retain power. No luck for them.
