As I wait for my tea to finish steeping on a rainy Tuesday morning, hours after the Liberals lost their majority and the popular vote but still took a large plurality of federal ridings, there's a few questions I can't answer yet. Some of them are just a matter of waiting for more detailed breakdowns of all of Monday night's individual races, and some number-crunching of meta results. But the biggest one is what happens to Andrew Scheer.

Or, to put it more bluntly, whether the Conservative leader won or lost.

For everyone else, it's an easy question to answer. Trudeau lost his majority. The NDP lost roughly half their caucus. The Greens failed to make a major breakthrough, despite yet another campaign of breathless speculation that this was their moment. The People's party fizzled into complete irrelevancy. The Bloc had themselves a great night.
