The True North Strong and Free

Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau celebrates his victory
Last night, Canada overwhelmingly elected Liberals to a majority in Parliament, and as a result Justin Trudeau (left, natch) will replace ultraConservative Stephen Harper as Prime Minister.

South of the 49th parallel, we can only envy Canadians for taking care of their election in a mere 78 days, though they thought even that to be a ghastly long time.

We can also be jealous that they will have a leader who is cover boy material. I dare say that none of the current crop of presidential contenders ought to consider appearing in public without a shirt. (Well, perhaps Jim Webb could still rock that look. Maybe Marco Rubio.)
