St Barack of Obama gave his support to Trudeau the other day, but then he does have a habit of poking his nose into the elections of other countries.

Minority gov with Libs supported by NDP I fear - worst of all worlds.

Best of all the realistic outcomes. NDP majority would be the dream but anything that a) keeps Scheer out of office and b) doesn't hand all power to the libs is good by me.

Another of Just-Ins broken promises was electoral reform , and 4 years later the West are financing Canada while their vote counts for zero after QC and ON . Vote for NDP 🙄, give your head a wobble . Can only hope for good news in the morning , after the Riders signing Fajardo on a 2 yr QB contract today , Trudeau unemployed tomorrow would make my week/year !

Likewise, he put me off emigrating there with his immigration / refugee rulings.

Boo, was hoping Trudeau would be gone. Will look up the turnout and vote increase later unless anyone has them to hand?

....so you'd only want to move to a Country which had quite strict migration rules (meaning that they probably wouldn't let you in)? confusedspin

From my Canadian friends, it looks like the movement for separation is picking up, Western Canada wants to go alone

Can't possibly see why Trudeau reneged on his "this will be the last first past the post election" promise 4 years ago.

From the post above yours I think the Conservatives piled up those votes in western Canada, hence the lower number of seats.

Unhealthy for any country to have separate different regions with such diverging voting patterns.

Don't we have a similar anomaly where Labour can have far less of the actual vote but more seats?

Yes, we have pretty much exactly the same electoral system as Canada.

Labour had 40% and the torys, 42%, but the seats were 262 and 317 respectively. Going off those numbers, I don't think labour got the good deal.

Fair enough. I thought there were boundary issues that they keep dodging, or was that the Lib Dems. Normal politics seems so long ago...
