It was one year ago today when Canadian voters took a leap of faith, and elected a deficit-ficed Liberal government to power in Ottawa. Justin Trudeau used his maiden speech as prime minister-elect to start the healing process for wounds torn open during what was a divisive and lengthy election campaign. In particular, Trudeau spoke to supporters in Montreal about cultural diversity, which became a divisive issue during the 78-day marathon. Trudeau said more work will be needed to heal wounds opened by such a debate. (Trudeau's Liberals won a solid majority in the election, ending the Harper Conservative era in the process, and pushing the NDP back to third-party status in the House of Commons.)
