Write about: victory.
Thank you, Canada. Thank you very much.
Oh, and the Blue Jays won tonight as well.
Good day all around.
Free at last, free at last. Oh my goodness does it ever feel good to be free at last.
Listen. I know I'm not going to love everything Trudeau and the Liberals do in office. I know he's going to make mistakes. I know his time as Prime Minister will not go exactly as planned.
But, right now? I am grateful for a change in leadership. I am thankful that my country has given him a chance to see what he can do for us. I am excited about the possibilities. I am proud of the man who is about to become the international face of Canada.
Most of all, though, I am just so friggin' glad to see the end of Harper and his Conservative government. I was going to say 'and the Conservatives' but I'm aware that they're not going anywhere. And I suspect that I will dislike their next leader as much as I did this one (despise is the better word but I'm in a generous mood).
It has been nearly a decade since we've had a different man in this role. That is a long time to not be proud of your country's leader. No, I should be more honest. That is a long time to be embarrassed by my country's leader.
That changed tonight. Not only am I proud, not only am I no longer embarrassed, I am actually excited about the man who is about to become my Prime Minister. What a breath of fresh air his speech was tonight. What a total change in direction from the personality and politics of the man he shall replace. Unity over division, positivity over negativity.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring in Canadian politics. But tonight... tonight I am happy.
