2019 Federal Election: Result and Analysis

Écrit par
FHR Public Affairs

On October 21, 2019, the Liberal Party of Canada won a second term, this time as a minority government. The results show the Liberals winning 157 seats, while the Conservatives took 121 seats, the Bloc Quebecois took 43 seats, the NDP 24, and the Greens winning three seats. 

The election outcome indicates that regionalism continues to play an important role in Canadian politics:

  • Half the Liberal caucus is from Ontario, showing the party’s strong presence in the province.
  • The Conservative Party shut the Liberals out of Alberta   and Saskatchewan, as well as making in-roads in battleground B.C.
  • Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet derailed  the Liberal’s plan for a majority government by 22 new seats in Quebec, and adding new life to a party that was  largely discounted before the election.
