Don't Stay Up Tonight
If the predictions are right and this election turns out to be a nail-biter, save those nails for tomorrow.
Elections Canada says the 1.2 million mail-in votes it received won't be counted until Tuesday. Unless the Liberals or Conservatives score a breakaway victory tonight the winner won't be known until tomorrow.
Suffice to say this election has not gone smoothly. There have been reports of frustrated voters waiting in long lineups at the polls. Elections Canada's website has had glitches that can leave some voters confused about where to go to vote.
First results from the Globe have the Libs with a 4 ridings to 1 lead. NatPo has it 4 to 2. That's Atlantic Canada, a Liberal bastion.
All of this in the middle of the deadliest wave of the pandemic and we will probably still not know the winner until tomorrow.
