Federal election outcomes easy enough to predict

The result of the 2015 federal election will see Stephen Harper remain as prime minister, with a majority Conservative government.

To the Editor,

Re: Nanaimo could be an election battleground, Opinion, March 10.

In the 2015 federal election, Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals will replace Thomas Mulcair and the federal NDP as the Official Opposition party of Canada. Thomas Mulcair will once again take the federal NDP down to the traditional 35 or so seats as is the common case when it comes to the NDP. The result of the 2015 federal election will see Stephen Harper remain as prime minister, with a majority Conservative government.

In the 2019 federal election, both Harper and Mulcair will retire and only Trudeau will remain as one of the leaders. Trudeau is presently in his apprenticeship training and in the 2019 election, he will be 48 years old with a great amount of experience in federal politics.

Watch out taxpayers, this will be the return of the federal Liberals as the government of Canada.
