The Results


As of 8:00am, the final results stood as follows:

lib cons ndp bq grp ind
135 99 19 54 0 1

Overnight, a couple of extra seats were lost from the NDP and the Libs and gained by the Tories. This puts the combined Liberals and NDP at 154 seats – or one shy of the 155 needed to form a majority.

Sweet relief!

While on most issues this will make no difference – an extra vote is generally easy enough to find – it does mean that in theory, the Conservatives and the Bloc (and one independent) can all combine to vote down a Liberal-NDP initiative.

Some of the margins were razor-thin; it will be interesting to see whether recounts affect any results.
