Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is incredibly relieved after retaining power in Canada's election but lost both his majority and - by a slight margin - the popular vote.
It was a tough election battle for the Liberals but at least the party faithful in Montreal are now breathing a little easier.
Mr Trudeau had an exceptionally long honeymoon by most political standards - but his popularity has clearly dimmed with the Canadian public.
The first trouble came after a disastrous overseas trip to India, which took place against a backdrop of photo-ops showcasing the Trudeau family in elaborate traditional Indian outfits.
Then came the SNC-Lavalin affair - an ethics scandal related to attempts to pressure a former attorney general to cut a deal for a firm facing a corruption trial, which further tarnished Mr Trudeau's personal brand.
That former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was booted out of the Liberal party by Mr Trudeau. Against the odds, Ms Wilson-Raybould ran and won as an independent in her Vancouver riding. She is a vocal critic of Mr Trudeau and will serve as a reminder of that scandal in the House of Commons.
Finally, revelations that Mr Trudeau wore blackface - widely seen as a racist caricature - on at least three occasions shook the Liberal campaign and forced him to ask Canadians to forgive him for his past misbehaviour.
