The same characteristics that swept Justin to power will probably lead to his undoing. Little by little, familiarity will breed contempt. His celebrity strengths will wear off, and unlike long-serving Prime Ministers with more depth and scope, he’ll flounder. The Liberal Party as a whole will suffer the same incumbency fatigue that all governments face as time goes on, although perhaps faster, due to their “style-over-substance”nature. MacKay is the antidote to Trudeau’s “Sunny Ways” schtick. People, even non-conservatives, respect MacKay. He’s got a different energy than Harper had and a more open approach.
Only Donald Trump can say he is running a self funded campaign, independent of the Koch Brothers, George Soros, and all the big men with big ties to corporate and international interests. Even though his views don't differ too greatly from Barack Obama's Democrats, Bernie Sanders can also say the same, except that he isn't self funded. Unlike Clinton, Sanders has raised most of his campaign funds through several, small grassroots donors. The rise of both Trump and Sanders has caused an establishment panic in both parties. The donor classes that have controlled every Democratic and Republican primary since 1988 have lost their grip on both sides in 2016.

From failing to meet their target of 25,000 refugees (and then their new target of 10,000) by the end of 2015, to reconsidering an end to Canada's contribution against ISIS, the Liberal Party's list of shattered promises keeps growing. As the months go on, we may see their plan to end FPP voting join that list. Reasons to hope for the destruction of this contentious Liberal promise grow with every new session in the House Of Commons. Any plans made to reform how Canadians vote will be made by the Minister Of Democratic Institutions, Maryam Monsef and a Liberal majority. If you've ever watched Monsef's performances in Question Period, you'll know exactly why Canadians should be concerned.
