Hitler was appointed Chancellor by President Hindenberg. He seized power when Hindenberg died.

At the time that Hindenberg appointed Hitler as Chancellor, the Nazi Party was a minority in the coalition government.

After consolidating the Presidency and Chancellorship........Hitler banned all elections.

Parties needed 50% of the vote and 50% of the seats to "win" the election and form a government.

The Nazis were only one party in a minority government without a clear winner.

Hindenberg appointed Hitler as Chancellor. He could have appointed any of the party leaders he wanted to.

When Hindenberg died, Hitler consolidated the power of the Presidency and Chancellorship and created a new title......ending future elections.

Führer, also spelled Fuehrer, German Führer, (“Leader”), title used by Adolf Hitler to define his role of absolute authority in Germany's Third Reich (1933–45).

You claimed he never won election. That is simply not true. He won and formed minority government at first, to then have a referendum (in case you don't know what it means - another vote) to see whether he can change constitution and seize more power.
Other opposition parties couldn't agree to form minority government so as a leader of the party who won the election, he was appointed chancellor.
He was appointed chancellor after he won election in order to form minority government.
You know, like the one we had in Canada for past 2 years, where Trudeau won election and was appointed prime minister to form minority government.
Coincidentally, Trudeau, same as Hitler, also tried to introduce dictatorship in COVID bill, but luckily that didn't pass.

Hitler had no authority to form a government, as the Nazis were a minority with only 37% of the vote.

The other parties held 63% of the vote and could have formed a coalition government.

Hindenberg appointed Hitler as Chancellor to break the impasse.

In Canada we have different rules for what happens in a minority government situation.

We don't have a President to appoint the PM, so we rely on votes of confidence and coalition governments.

Hitler was never elected by the German people to become the leader. He was one of several party leaders who could have been appointed.

Of course he had authority to form a government.
Exactly the same as Trudeau had authority to form a government in 2019.
It is exactly the same system as in Canada once parliament is formed (election system make it virtually impossible to form majority government by a single party, although Mussolini in elections in 1924 managed to do so despite your denying of history).
Leader of the party who won is appointed chancellor/prime minister unless opposition parties form a coalition.
Hitler was appointed chancellor exactly on the same premise as Trudeau was appointed Prime Minister.
Then, Hitler and Trudeau both dissolved the parliament, calling another election.
Hitler and his coalition partner then gained enough votes to form majority government.

They both attempted to introduce dictatorship. One was successful, the other one luckily was not.
Enabling Act on March 23, 1933 gave Hitler dictatorial powers.
Liberal Bill, reveled on March 23, 2020 luckily didn't gain enough support to give Trudeau dictatorial powers

The government is always operational. It wouldn't make any logical sense to not have a functioning government to deal with emergencies at any time.

The government in office retains power until another government officially replaces them.

Any party that has the most seats, but not a majority of 170 or more, must form a coalition with enough other MPs to form a government.

Winning the most seats does not guarantee forming a government. If the Conservatives win the most seats, it is quite likely they would not form a government.

The Liberals and NDP would vote together to form a coalition government to block the Conservatives.

The PM has the first option to form a government. He would go to the Governor General with proof that he could form a majority with the NDP.

Even if the Conservatives win the most seats, the PM is not obligated to step down. He could retain power until there he loses a vote of confidence.

It isn't as simple as you would make it.

Ironically, your post about ignorance is very ignorant. You aren't helping yourself.

I am well aware of that. Why do you think there was election in Germany March 1933, just 2 months after Hitler was appointed chancellor? - because Hitler wanted majority government.
Same reason there is now election in Canada. Because Trudeau wanted majority government, despite already being Prime Minister (same as Hitler already being Chancellor)
And he won the majority government March 1933

January 1933 he was appointed chancellor simply because opposition parties didn't agree to form a coalition. Precisely like you said would be necessary to block the party which won election.
Hitler actually had most votes and seats in previous elections too, but opposition parties managed to form coalition government. This time they didn't so he was appointed chancellor.

So now you admit that Hitler didn't win the election but claim he won the election in March 1933.

In January 1933, the Nazis seized complete power in Germany, and were on a rampage of threats and violence against all opponents.

The election in March 1933 was a sham.

The 1933 election followed the previous year's two elections (July and November) and Hitler's appointment as Chancellor. In the months before the 1933 election, brownshirts and SS displayed "terror, repression and propaganda [...] across the land",[1]: 339  and Nazi organizations "monitored" the vote process. In Prussia 50,000 members of the SS, SA and Der Stahlhelm were ordered to monitor the votes by acting Interior Minister Hermann Göring, as auxiliary police.[2]

Hitler won 4 consecutive elections in Germany.
Mussolini won 1 election with over 60% of popular vote in Italy

Hitler's rise to power is exactly the same that Trudeau has attempted and is now attempting.
Including attempt to introduce dictatorship through legislature.
Coincidentally both on March 23.

You really should study history of Germany between World War I and World War II.
It is extremely important time period as you get to learn how the atrocities of World War II came to be. It is valuable lesson to make sure the history doesn't get repeated.
You lying about the history isn't helpful - learn from it and don't repeat same mistakes.

It's pretty amazing how an anti-vax protest held in Toronto diverts to a puking history lesson of Nazism ... I gather it's a specialty if not profession of a couple of posters on this forum.

Yes, those who want to avoid mistakes from the past, learn how those mistakes were committed to make sure it doesn't happen again.
When you have your country torn down and your great-grandparents killed by Nazis for helping those the government determined -unpure, unworthy, lesser people, then yes, you tend to be sensitive to the rise of the same rhetoric and to exactly same patterns developing.

Just because you have no foresight doesn't mean others don't.

This is really nutty stuff, man. Way out of touch with reality.

The only western leader in recent times who has come close to being a dictator is Trump. Thankfully the US military (Joint Chiefs of Staff) prepared for Trump's overthrow attempt, but that was a very close call. Truly unprecedented that the military had to respond to the insurrection with this letter about the election results.

Trump tried dismantling government and in the days leading up to confirmation of the president, even fired senior defense officials and installed his guys in the Pentagon. He was preparing to seize power.

This was a VERY dangerous situation.

No, for example, the 2019 Liberal election where there was no coalition

Even if the Conservatives win the most seats, the PM is not obligated to step down. He could retain power until there he loses a vote of confidence.
He's only the PM until the GG appoints a new PM.
It would be a break of convention if the CPC wins the most seats and is not appointed PM. Could happen, but it would really undermine the credibility of the GG and the incoming government.

Actually Bucerias is in a neighboring state, comparable to Waterloo.
Huh?
Most areas only have one hospital, you can't designate the ONLY hospital COVID free.
My example with Kitchener is that it's a large center, with only 1 hospital.
