Liberal Minority - Oct 22nd

Good morning,

Canadians voted in a minority parliament governed by a Trudeau government. In addition, there were several upsets of key cabinet ministers and prominent opposition MPs which will means that there will be a significant shift in the makeup of the House of Commons…and the cabinet table. The reason being is that new Liberal government is going to have no cabinet ministers from Alberta or Saskatchewan and the voice of Quebec voters will belong to the Bloc Quebecois.

Unfortunately, despite the record numbers on campuses and during the advance polls, voter turnout in #elxn43 was 62 per cent; down from the 2105 election, which had 68.5 per cent turnout.

Now we wait to see who will be part of the Liberal cabinet and when all the newly elected MPs will make their way back to Parliament Hill.

Until then, let’s find out what was…

Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer will hold a media availability in Regina at 1 p.m. EST

Voters elect first Green candidate ever outside B.C.

Beautiful moment on CBC between former NDP MP Megan Leslie sending her words of support to former Conservative MP Lisa Raitt, who has lost her seat in Ontario.

@battisctv Perhaps the election night equivalent to an elbow to the head, Trudeau takes stage moments after Scheer steps up. Ending long standing tradition of waiting your turn. A sign of how testy this campaign was. https://t.co/lExf6RaxXD
