Justin Trudeaus Liberals will form a minority government
The Liberals, led by Justin Trudeau, will head back to parliament for a second consecutive term as the governing party, although theyll need to negotiate support from at least one other party in order to pass any legislation while they are in office.

Neither the Liberals nor Conservatives hit the 170-seat threshold needed for a majority government as polls were counted Monday night.

Trudeau has also held on to his Montreal-area seat of Papineau while Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer defended his Regina-Qu’Appelle riding and Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet unseated NDP incumbent Matthew Dube in the Quebec riding of Beloeil-Chambly.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh’s party sank to fourth place behind the Bloc Quebecois but he won his Burnaby South seat while Green party Leader Elizabeth May also kept her Saanich-Gulf Islands riding.

People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier lost his seat in Beauce, Que., to Conservative candidate Richard Lehoux.

Trudeau gave what can best be described as a victory speech in terms of tone but in it, insisted that his party has won a “clear mandate” from Canadians despite losing roughly 20 seats compared to his 2015 results and now being reliant on another party if they want to get anything done.

While the Liberals had previously held 177 seats, Trudeau now holds 156 seats and will not be able to pass any legislation without getting at least one other party on board to support their bills. The Conservatives, on the other hand, picked up 23 seats to sit at 122 and the Bloc Quebecois roughly tripled their showing in Quebec to 32 seats.

Trudeau, however, walked onto stage after Scheer had begun his own speech and began giving his own, which did not acknowledge some of the major hits the Liberals took in the form of the defeat of veterans like Ralph Goodale, who has served as public safety minister, or the wipe-out of his party’s four seats in Alberta.

Northern Saskatchewan, almost entirely made up of the Desnethé-Missinippi-Churchill River riding, was a close race between Liberal Tammy Cook-Searson and NDP incumbent Georgina Jolibois.

To my fellow Canadians it has been the greatest honour of my life to serve you for these past four years and tonight you are sending us back to work for you,” Trudeau said.

Jane Philpott, the former Liberal health minister who resigned from cabinet and removed from caucus has lost her Markham Stouffville seat to former Ontario health minister Helena Jaczek.

More than half of Canadians dislike Trudeau: Gallup poll

We take this responsibility seriously and we will work hard for you and your families … to those who did not vote for us know that we will work every single day for you, we will govern for everyone. Regardless of how you cast your ballot ours is a team that will fight for all Canadians.

Other incumbents to win seats include Grande Prairie Mackenzie Conservative Chris Warkentin, Foothills Conservative John Barlow, and Calgary Nose Hill Conservative Michelle Rempel.

Scheer in his own speech said he had congratulated Trudeau on winning the most seats but cast the reduction in Liberal seats as a rebuke from voters to Trudeau, warning that Conservatives will be focused on taking him on next time.

Like a boxer who couldn’t wait to take on the champ, the Conservatives positively salivated at the chance to get the battered and bruised Trudeau in the ring, his image beyond tarnished, his hypocrisy unmasked for all to see, his promise to be something better now a cruel joke.

Singh also said he had congratulated Trudeau and all eyes will now be on both him and on Blanchet for how they could plan on working with the Liberals in a minority government.

It was over when the numbers rolled in for Ontario and Quebec. It was over quicker than we thought. You can yell and you can scream and you can call your fellow Canadians every name in the book, but them’s the facts.

Overall, the results showed stark divides across the country with the Liberals locked out of Alberta entirely and keeping only a scant handful of seats in the Prairies, while cracks emerged in the Liberal hold on Atlantic Canada after sweeping that region in 2015.

But Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer couldn’t get a bump up. Trudeau floundered, a shadow of his poor little rich boy self, but Scheer stayed stuck in the polls.

In Ontario and Quebec, a strong number of Liberal cabinet ministers kept their seats but the resurgence of the Bloc Quebecois appears to have eaten into the strength of the Liberal vote in Quebec while the Conservatives suffered a major upset in Ontario in the defeat of party veteran Lisa Raitt to her Liberal challenger.

Can still recall Conservatives in the House of Commons down in Ottawa and how they leaped to their feet day after day after day in anticipation of the election.

What Now for the Climate Emergency?

The Greens also won a historic three seats, keeping two that they already held on Vancouver Island and picking up an addition seat in New Brunswick.

This is no sour grapes. They died on the vine when the polls during the ballot battle showed the Scheer Conservatives couldn’t move the dial their way.

Meanwhile in B.C., the big story is the victory of former Liberal attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould as an Independent in Vancouver Granville.

Voters in Atlantic Canada gave the Liberals a slight early lead as the first poll results began rolling in on Monday night.

“We’ve already heard from the NDP … that they’re not willing to support a Conservative government so that would essentially mean that government would collapse pretty quick and we’d probably be back to another election,” Saunders said.

Of those Atlantic Liberals, the cabinet ministers who have held onto their seats are Dominic LeBlanc, Seamus ORegan, Bernadette Jordan, Ginette Petitpas Taylor and Lawrence MacAulay. Geoff Regan, who was Speaker of the House of Commons most recently, and long-time Liberal Wayne Easter also retained their seats.

“We had a minority Liberal government but, during that time, we had a new flag that we decided on, we expanded medicare and, during that time, we were able to get some really significant policy decisions made.”

Liberal backbenchers Scott Simms, Gudie Hutchings, Ken McDonald, René Arseneault, Bobby Morrissey, Andy Fillmore and Serge Cormier also secured their seats, as did Darrell Sampson, Darren Fisher, Sean Fraser, Sean Casey and Churence Rogers.

The poll found 33 per cent of decided voters would choose the Conservatives while 31 per cent would choose the Liberals. The difference is within the polls credibility interval of plus or minus two percentage points.

Rookie Liberal candidate Kody Blois also held on to the Kings-Hants seat vacated by former cabinet minister Scott Brison earlier this year.

With the latest Ipsos poll, conducted exclusively for Global News, indicating a dead heat between the Conservatives and Liberals, a minority government seems possible, if not a likely result on Monday.

Several Conservatives managed to chip away at the Liberal hold on Atlantic Canada, though, with three formerly red seats swinging blue.

Conservative Richard Bragdon won the riding of Tobique–Mactaquac from incumbent Liberal T.J. Harvey. John Williamson also won the riding of New Brunswick Southwest from Liberal incumbent Karen Ludwig.

Conservative Rob Moore also won the New Brunswick seat of Fundy Royal from Liberal Alaina Lockhart, who was among the crop of first-time MPs swept into office in 2015.

But the comeback story of the night so far is that of the NDP’s Jack Harris, who will be returning to Ottawa.

“Even the Conservatives win say, ten more seats than the Liberals, that does not entitle them to government, it’s that simple. Justin Trudeau, as the outgoing prime minister has every right to meet Parliament and see whether or not he can command confidence of the house.”

Harris had been a longtime NDP MP for the Newfoundland riding of St. John’s East before he lost to Liberal Nick Whelan in 2015.

The last time a coalition government was attempted in Canada was in 2008 when the Liberals and NDP agreed on a coalition with support from the Bloc Quebecois. The agreement disbanded after then Prime Minister Stephen Harper prorogued Parliament.

The Green Party also won a surprise upset in Fredericton, N.B., taking that seat away from the incumbent Liberals.

“We have a Westminster parliamentary system which says that the party that can control the most seats or a majority of the seats in the house, has the confidence of the house and therefore has the right to govern.”

Results in Quebec also hinted at early signs of strong showing by the Bloc Quebecois, with that party taking 20 seats so far in the province.

“As we’ve heard in this election, the New Democrats will not prop up or vote with the Conservatives, the Greens certainly won’t, they’re likely to win three maybe five seats.”

Several Liberal cabinet ministers from Quebec have kept their seats: Marc Garneau, Melanie Joly and David Lametti held onto their Montreal-area seats, while Jean-Yves Duclos kept his Quebec City seat in what had been predicted to be a close race.

While talk of an alliance or coalition between the Liberals and NDP has angered some voters, Brownsey said those parties have the right to make that pact.

Pablo Rodriguez, who served as minister of Canadian heritage in the last government, also kept his seat, as did longtime Liberal Francis Scarpaleggia.

Polling evidence favours Liberal victory: Lyle

Francois-Philippe Champagne, who was infrastructure minister, kept his Saint-Maurice—Champlain riding too.

Prominent Conservatives in that province who also kept their seats include Gérard Deltell, Pierre Paul-Hus, Alain Rayes, Luc Berthold and Steven Blaney.

In Ontario, the big upset of the night came in Milton, where Lisa Raitt, who had represented the riding for 11 years, lost her seat to Liberal challenger and four-time Olympian Adam van Koeverden.

The biggest disappointment of the night belongs to the Greens. Early in the campaign, everything seemed to be going Elizabeth Mays way. The cause she has championed for most of her life suddenly became top of mind. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change had confirmed the need for a rapid response to the climate crisis.

Kirsty Duncan was the first of the Liberal cabinet ministers from that province to secure her Toronto-area seat, as did Chrystia Freeland, Bill Blair, Bill Morneau, Mary Ng, Carolyn Bennett and Navdeep Bains.

Although the Conservative party gained at least 25 seats, the party did not come close to equaling the Liberals, as many polls were predicting. Although Andrew Scheer remains the leader of the Official Opposition, he ultimately delivered a dreary, also-ran performance that mirrored his not-for-pay-TV campaign style of grin to win.

Bardish Chagger and Ahmed Hussen also held onto their seats while Jane Philpott, who had been a rising star in the Liberal government until she quit cabinet in protest amid the SNC-Lavalin scandal and was subsequently ejected from caucus by Trudeau, lost her Markham-Stouffville seat to the Liberal challenger.

Canada declared a climate emergency, and thousands of Canadians, many of them young people, took to the streets of Vancouver and Montreal to demand action from governments. Teenager Greta Thunberg took the adult world to the woodshed for its mistreatment of the environment, appearing on every mainstream media outlet in the world.

Maverick Liberal Nathaniel Erskine-Smith also kept his downtown Toronto seat in Beaches-East York while Patty Hajdu, who served as a cabinet minister in the last government, held on to her Thunder Bay-Superior North seat.

Canadians are also divided on their living standards. 53 percent believe their lives are improving, while 27 percent believe it is not. These numbers are the most contrasting since polls were taken in 2010.

Closer to Ottawa, Liberal Mona Fortier held on to the historically safe seat of Ottawa-Vanier, while David McGuinty kept his seat of Ottawa South and Anita Vandenbeld maintained Ottawa West-Nepean.

Trudeau’s handling of the environment has also alienated many. On one hand, his carbon tax has been detested by Conservatives; one the other, his purchasing of a pipeline is derided by the NDP.

Marie-France Lalonde kept the riding of Orleans in Liberal hands after quitting her role as MPP for that same riding provincially last month.

The approval for Trudeau’s handling of the climate question is lower than that of Harper. Harper ended his term with a 53 percent approval on the climate; Trudeau is at 50 percent.

Catherine McKenna, who served as environment minister in the last government, also held on to her Ottawa Centre riding.

Trudeau’s administration has faced numerous scandals, most notably the Admiral Norman scandal, the SNC-Lavalin scandal, and the blackface scandal to name a few.

Large swathes of the Prairies are seeing a strong Conservative showing, with the party largely sweeping Alberta so far and many parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Of the Conservatives in the West, James Bezan was the first to secure his Manitoba riding of Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman.

According to the latest results of the Gallup poll, 52 percent of Canadians hold Justin Trudeau in a negative light.

The major upset in Saskatchewan came in the defeat of veteran Liberal cabinet minister Ralph Goodale, who had represented Regina-Wascana for 26 years.

In 2016, 72 percent of Canadians approved of the way Justin Trudeau was handling his job as Prime Minister.

Conservative Candice Bergan also kept her Manitoba seat while incumbent Conservatives Larry Maguire, Dan Mazier, Robert Kitchen, Glen Motz, Ted Falk, Cathay Wagantall, John Barlow and Arnold Viersen also kept theirs in that province and in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The Liberals were locked out of Wild Rose country entirely, losing their Edmonton Centre seat held by Randy Boissonnault as well as Edmonton Mill Woods, which had been held by Amarjeet Sohi, who served as natural resources minister.

They also lost Calgary Centre, which had been held by Kent Hehr, as well as Calgary Skyview, which had been held by Darshan Kang before he was kicked out of the Liberal caucus to sit as an Independent.

Conservatives Shannon Stubbs, Rachael Harder, Mike Lake, Stephanie Kusie, Michael Cooper, Garnett Genuis and Chris Warkentin are also among the incumbents who held on to their Alberta seats, while Bob Zimmer and Todd Doherty maintained their B.C. seats.

Lamoureux represents Winnipeg North while Carr, who served as a cabinet minister in the last government, held on to Winnipeg South Centre.

The NDP’s Niki Ashton also held on to her Manitoba riding of Churchill-Keewatinook Aski as did Daniel Blaikie in Elmwood-Transcona.

The NDP has also kept two seats in B.C. so far: Skeena-Bulkley Valley, which had been represented by long-time NDP MP Nathan Cullen until he announced earlier this year he would not run again, will be held now by Taylor Bachrach, while Jenny Kwan keeps her Vancouver East seat.

But the major headline out of B.C. was the victory of former Liberal attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould as an Independent candidate.

Business tops experience among 2019 candidates, one-third have run for office before

Wilson-Raybould was removed from her role as attorney general earlier this year and later quit cabinet entirely before being ejected from Trudeau for her role in raising red flags about the SNC-Lavalin scandal during explosive testimony before the House of Commons justice committee.

Harjit Sajjan, who served as Liberal defence minister, kept his seat in Vancouver South while Joyce Murray, who has served as president of the Treasury Board, also kept Vancouver Quadra for the party and Jonathan Wilkinson, the minister of fisheries, maintained his seat in North Vancouver.
