Trudeau has garnered a massive 50.8 per cent of the vote, followed by NDP candidate Christine Paré with 19.2 per cent of the vote.

While the overall votes have not been tallied yet, projections say the Liberals will be holding on to power in the form of a minority government.

Despite the win, it’s still quite a loss for the Liberals, as they had 184 seats after the 2015 elections and now will occupy far fewer seats.

Meanwhile Green Party leader Elizabeth May achieved a similar victory in her riding of Saanich-Gulf Islands, and Andrew Scheer held on to his seat in Regina-Qu’Appelle with 64 per cent of the vote.

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh is projected to win his riding of Burnaby South with 37.1 per cent of the vote after over three quarters of the ballots had been counted.

The only party leader to lose his riding is People’s Party leader Maxime Bernier in Beauce, Quebec, where the MP seat went to Conservative Party candidate Richard Lehoux.
