Meanwhile in Canada

The Conservative Party of Canada has elected it's new leader, Pierre Poilievre, whom I would describe to Americans as the Ron DeSantis of Canada - not from a resume perspective but from a platform and style perspective.  He will look to unseat Justin Trudeau in Canada's next election.  The Conservative Party of Canada is in good hands.

Via CTV news:

Pierre Poilievre is the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, securing victory on the first ballot after a record-setting and divisive leadership campaign. After a seven-month campaign, the long-time MP and former cabinet minister from Ontario won the election decisively, securing 22,993 of the just under 33,800 electoral points up for grabs. Poilievre secured support across the country, coming in as members' first choice in almost every riding.
“Tonight begins the journey to replace an old government that costs you more and delivers you less, with a new government that puts you first, your paycheck, your retirement, your home, your country,” Poilievre said in his first speech as leader on Saturday evening from the Ottawa convention centre floor where the leadership announcement was held on Saturday night.
Receiving 68.15 per cent of the vote, Poilievre far outpaced his progressive Conservative rival and runner up Jean Charest's 16.07 per cent of the vote.
Social conservative and MP Leslyn Lewis placed third, with 9.69 per cent of the vote.

Full disclosure, I joined the Conservative Party of Canada and voted in the leadership race, for  Poilievre.
