Justin Trudeau's Liberals win minority government

The Liberal Party of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau, won the most seats in Monday's Canadian federal election, but fell short of an outright majority.

Elections forecasts by CBC News, CTV, Global and TVA all predicted a Liberal win shortly after 10p.m. EST., when polls in British Columbia closed.

It is now expected Trudeau will lead a minority government, meaning the Liberals would need to garner the support of other parties to pass legislation.

Canada's last minority government was led by Stephen Harper from 2008 to 2011.

As of 11:45p.m., Trudeau's Liberals were leading or elected in 157 ridings, although were second place in the popular vote with 33.2 per cent of votes nationally.

The Conservatives, led by Andrew Scheer, were elected or leading in 121 ridings with 34.3 per cent of the vote.

The  Yves-François Blanchet-led Bloc Québécois — whose vote is concentrated solely in Quebec — had 8.5 per cent of the vote and was elected or leading in 32 seats.

The NDP had 15.4 per cent of the vote and was elected or leading in 25 seats.

The Green Party of Canada, led by Elizabeth May, had 6.1 per cent of the vote and was elected or leading in 3 seats.
