Monday, October 19, 2015 @ 9:26 PM

Prince George, B.C.-  Justin Trudeau  opened his acceptance  speech  quoting  Sir Wilfred Laurier  who said politics could be a positive force and “Today Canadians have  chosen  change, real change.”

Trudeau’s team  rolled over Canada in  tidal wave,  giving  Trudeau’s Liberals a  strong majority  government.

He  said he wanted to first thank his family for their support  “for allowing me to serve”.

He thanked Stephen Harper for his  service to Canada,  and  added “Conservatives are not our enemies, they are our neighbours.”

He also offered  congratulations to Thomas Mulcair “he  fought to the end”.

“Lots of people are going to have lots of opinions  about   why we  were successful, ” said Trudeau who added  the win was the result of meeting with Canadians over the past three years, “and we listened.  You told us what you need to be successful, and told us why kind of government you want and we built  the platform to make it happen.”

“You are in the inspiration for our efforts” Trudeau  told the crowd,  “And you will be at the heart of this government”.

“I didn’t make history  tonight,  you did,  don’t let anyone tell you any differently” said Trudeau ” I know I am on stage tonight for one reason and one reason only  because you put me here and you gave me clear marching orders.”
