Canada Election 2019: Trudeau’s Liberals will form a minority government
The Liberals, led by Justin Trudeau, will head back to parliament for a second consecutive term as the governing party, although they’ll need to negotiate support from at least one other party in order to pass any legislation while they are in office. Neither the Liberals nor Conservatives hit the 170-seat threshold needed for a majority government as polls were counted Monday night.
While the Liberals had previously held 177 seats, Trudeau now holds 156 seats and will not be able to pass any legislation without getting at least one other party on board to support their bills. The Conservatives, on the other hand, picked up 23 seats to sit at 122 and the Bloc Quebecois roughly tripled their showing in Quebec to 32 seats.
