Lightbulb 2019 Canada Election: At A Glance

On Oct 21, Canada held its 43rd federal election. Nearly 18 million Canadians voted (voter turnout rate of 65.95%) and Liberals won the minority (157 seats/ridings out of 338), 13 short to form majority govt.

Key Highlights:
1) Liberal party led by Justin Trudeau wins minority in the House of Commons despite Conservatives winning popular votes by a small margin
2) Major provinces like Alberta (AB) and Saskatchewan (SK) fully rejected Liberals
3) As a result, Ontario played a key role in determining who is going to govern for the next 4 years
4) Bloc Quebecois became 3rd major party by winning 32 seats (all from Quebec) while New Democratic Party (NDP) led by Jagmeet Singh dropped to 4th.

GTA will always decide the fate of the election.

Glad the populist wave that's been getting popular all over the globe was dead here. Maxime Bernier lost his own riding lol

Albertans are irrelevant, they will vote blue no matter what even though Trudeau bought them a friggin pipeline and going against his pro climate voter base. No idea how else he could gain support there

The party perhaps. But not as a bloc or movement. NDP is even further to the left of Trudeu's Liberals, so while this election was bad for Trudeau, it was a pretty resounding win for progressives and a huge loss for Canada's conservatives.
