Trudeau holds on to power
Justin Trudeau is heading back to Parliament.
The Liberals won enough seats to form a minority government. The Conservatives won the second-most seats.
All the federal leaders were re-elected in their home ridings, except for People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier. Trudeau was re-elected in the Montreal riding of Papineau. Andrew Scheer has been re-elected in Saskatchewan’s Regina-Qu’Appelle riding. Jagmeet Singh was re-elected in his riding of Burnaby South in Vancouver. Elizabeth May was re-elected in the British Columbia riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands.
Bernier lost his seat in Quebec’s Beauce riding to Conservative candidate Richard Lehoux, who beat Bernier by 9.9 per cent.
