The Liberal Party of Canada will form a minority government having won, at the time of publication, 157 seats of the 170 seats required to be positioned as majority government. The West Island goes red across the region.

Justin Trudeau will become the 24th Prime Minister of Canada. While the Libs lost support and seats, they did not lose government.  The Bloc and Tories made some headway with the Bloc potentially holding the balance of power.   The conservatives will act as the official opposition.

 

Canada Elects Justin Trudeau again!
