Between the federal election, the third game in Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals series and the release of Drake’s Hotline Bling video, it’s safe to say that last night was a big day for Canada.
The Liberal Party of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau, won a majority government last night with 184 seats. Sixty-eight per cent of Canadians got out and voted–the highest turnout rate in over two decades.
Here’s how the Internet reacted.
Some users were had trouble deciding between following the election, baseball, the Star Wars trailer and Drake’s video release

Do you guys think that maybe we overcorrected a little bit.
