Trudeau Loses But Not By Enough

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau can count himself very lucky today especially after the terrible black face video which should have seen him turfed out of power although he did lose 30 seats and his majority.
I don't know much about Canadian politics but the view seems to be that Trudeau's appeal had 'lost its luster' but the only other options included the austerity measures of the right wing Conservatives.
Being the lesser of two evils is not the best headline to being elected and Trudeau can't even claim to have won the backing of his people as his Liberal party didn't even get the most votes, winning 33% of votes and he Conservatives gaining 34.5%.
He lost by just enough to keep his job and it seems was helped by his opposition being awful.
