With a new Liberal government heading to Parliament Hill, Justin Trudeau is Canada’s next Prime Minister.

“Canadians have chosen change, a real change,” Trudeau said in his victory speech. “This is what positive politics can do.”

“For three years we had a very old fashioned strategy,” he said. “We met with and talked with as many Canadians as we could — and we listened.”

“Know that we can make anything happen if we set our minds to it and work hard.”

“I didn’t make history tonight — you did,” exclaimed Trudeau to a sea of supporters in his Papineau riding in Montreal.

Trudeau thanked Stephen Harper for ten years of dedication to Canada.

“The Conservatives are not our enemies, they’re our neighbours,” he said.

Trudeau also hinted at possible cooperation with the NDP.

Trudeau’s plan includes ending the campaign in Iraq and Syria while boosting humanitarian aid, amending Bill C-51, cutting the middle class tax bracket to 20.5%, restoring door to door mail delivery, and reinstating the long form census.

The party also plans to legalize marijuana and allow it to be sold and taxed at approved locations.
