*UPDATE* Canadian Election Night – Open Discussion Thread – Trudeau Wins Reelection…

UPDATE – RESULTS: Everyone Declared Victory.

Justin Trudeau celebrated an overwhelming victory following the results of the Canadian election – SEE RESULTS HERE –  The Liberal party lost 21 seats but remained the majority parliamentary winner albeit without a majority. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a “solid mandate from the election results.”  The Conservative party gained 27 seats and the most national votes, but remain the losing party.  The New Democrat Party lost 15 seats and declared the 2019 election a major success for their agenda.

It’s all weird.

During their post election speeches the Liberals (Trudeau), Conservatives (Sheer), New Democrat Party (Singh) and the Green Party (May), all declared victory.  It seemed like a hot mess of political messaging; but hey, that’s Canada.

Congratulations, I guess.

Liberals (RED), Conservatives (BLUE), New Democrats (Orange)

 

Tonight the results of the Canadian election will start to be announced.  Canada is a parliamentary system and therefore voters do not vote for a national candidate, instead they vote for a local representative, MP’s, who belong to a national party.

There are 338 separate district races called ‘federal ridings’ from coast to coast.  In order for a party to win outright they need to win 170 district seats.

If a party doesn’t win 170 seats they need to form a government in combination with one, or more, of the other parties.  Whichever party wins the majority of the seats elects a leader to become Prime Minister.

Currently there are 177 Liberal seats; 95 Conservative seats; 39 New Democratic Party seats; 10 Bloc Quebecois seats; 2 Green seats; 1 People’s Party of Canada seats; and 8 Independent seats.  Early results should start coming in around 7:00pm Eastern.

    I have to admit I laughed out loud when I read the names of the two live streams. Thanks!

    Canadian here, obviously moderately interested in the outcome. It’s hard to get excited given the US soap opera but in the other hand it’s not so bad having some calm ( and boring) too.

    Someday, when Trump finally wins the battle for goodness in the US, and the evil lib-profs are vanquished, we can discuss why I vote Liberal in Canadian federal elections. It’s complicated but it’s largely because Canada’s extremely large with a very low population that is centring in urban areas at a fast pace. A strong and active federal government is necessary to ensure the construct of ‘country’ continues.

    But another time.

    Our family lived in Calgary way back in the 80s. We weren’t much for Canadian politics but Alberta was the Conservative stronghold back then.

    We enjoyed our two years in Calgary (except the part where I watched the Habs skate the cup around the Saddledome) and I learned to play hockey while we were there. I was the worst hockey player ever born, but I had a lot of fun helping take care of the outdoor rink at the schoolyard where my sons learned to skate.

    If I recall, a Conservative named Brian Mulroney was the PM at that time. I thought most Canadians were liberal and their health care system was okay for us young people who didn’t need much face time with the people who ran it. The Provinces actually administered their system even though all of the taxes for it were collected by the Government in Ottawa and distributed back to the Provinces. I thought that was pretty odd at the time. Nobody ever got major surgeries done in Canada because all the best surgeons moved to the US where they could make more serious money for their highly skilled labors, as did many of their best Doctors.

    When the Apollo mission blew up I became homesick for my country and did not like being an ex-patriot anymore. I never felt that bad for my country again until 9/11/2001. After we moved back to Houston, the Flames won that damn Cup and I recorded the Calgary winter Olympics on VCR tapes that I think I still have somewhere, eh? 🙂

    Here is to hoping the Conservatives at least force the Liberals to look for help from the minor parties in order to have a governing majority. Trudeau is an embarrassment to a great Country. So, I am watching and hoping for big Conservative gains tonight.

    If Trudeau gets returned to power us Canadians deserve 4 more years of the rogering we’ve been getting for the last 4 years.
    I at least can sleep knowing our whole family (6 Tory votes) did what we could to stop the madness.

    The Bloc Quebecois is dominating outside of Montreal in early returns. A big reason for that is the very strong anti-migrant feeling inside Quebec. Quebec passed a law making it illegal to wear the burqua and niqab. They are also fed up with Trudeau welcoming all those who walk across the border with open arms. As a minority itself within a majority population, Quebecois struggle to maintain their own culture and identity as a separate and distinct people, and the unfettered migration of “asylum seekers” is threatening that in every possible way. The elites in the media don’t like to touch this third rail of Canadian internecine politics.

    The BQ surge will also eat away at the Liberal hope for a clear majority.

    Leyland Cecco has our first results of the night.As of 10pm EST (now) the results are as follows:

    Number of seats the party has won or is leading in:

    Liberal 94
    Conservatives 63
    Bloc Québécois 16
    New Democratic party 9
    Green 1
    While the Liberals have lost a handful of seats in Atlantic Canada, the party has nonetheless emerged largely unscathed – a promising result for Trudeau.

    But as results from Ontario and Quebec begin to pour in, the race is expected to tighten considerably.

    The separatist Bloc Québécois party is hoping to make substantial gains in Québec, stealing back seats the Liberals won in 2015.

    In the suburbs of Ontario, Conservatives are hoping to make gains as well- but early results don’t look promising for the party.“

    But starting so low on conservative numbers, is it realistic for a conservative win?

        IMO Trudeau will not allow USMCA to be voted on. Trudeau doesn’t care what happens to Canada if NAFTA goes away. His job is to sit tight and nurse his government until Trump is removed from office. He will wait for Trump to impeached and lose the trial in the senate. If that doesn’t happen He wait for the 2020 election results. If Trump wins 2020 election he will wait to see if the next impeachment attempt will be successful. And the next. And the next. Or Trump’s second term expires.

    “ Leyland Cecco has this interpretation of events:

    Justin Trudeau will hold on to power—but a number of tight races mean it is unclear how strong his mandate will be.

    With results still to come, the Liberal party have a large enough lead over the rival Conservative party to continue governing, but have not yet reached enough seats to preserve their parliamentary majority. With the prospects of a minority government, election results will prove critical in determining which parties hold the balance of power moving forward.”

    The only good news here is that Andrew Scheer will be tossed out as the Conservative leader for losing an election he should have easily won. Instead of standing for real Conservative principles, he led the party into pandering to most of lefty causes, split the conservative support, and gave no reason for middle of the road voters to shift back over and support the party.

    Scheer has been a real failure and absolutely the main reason were going to get 4 more brutal years of Turdeau.
