Canada election 2021 results
From sources, 98% of the common seats have been counted with Liberal winning with 158 votes whiles the Conservative are having 119 votes.
The Liberal is headed by prime minister Justin Trudeau whiles the Conservative is headed by Erin O’Toole.
The remaining seats in the next Parliament will be held by the left-leaning New Democratic Party and the Quebec-based separatist party Bloc Quebecois.
Below is what Trudeau told his Liberal supporters from Montreal early Tuesday;
“You are sending us back to work with a clear mandate to get Canada through this pandemic and to the brighter days ahead. My friends, that’s exactly what we are ready to do.”
“What we’ve seen tonight is that millions of Canadians have chosen a progressive plan. Some have talked about division but that’s not what I see. That’s not what I’ve seen these past weeks across the country.”
O’Toole who spoke to his party supporters called the snap election a “quick power grab by saying; “Five weeks ago Mr. Trudeau asked for a majority, he said the minority parliament was ‘unworkable.’ But tonight Canadians did not give Mr. Trudeau the majority mandate he wanted”.
“In fact Canadians sent him back with another minority at the cost of $600 million Canadian dollars and deeper divisions in our great country.”
