Ruling Conservatives Win Canada Elections

The party increased its seats from 143 to 167, well above the 155 needed to form a majority government.

In the previous parliament, the party could only govern by forming a coalition with other parties.

The reaction of the public to the results are mixed:

The progressive NDP also tripled its share from a mere 37 seats to 102, making it the official opposition party. Liberals, in power for most of Canada's history, sustained a decisive defeat and so did the separatist Bloc Québécois party.

On the surface the outcome might be the continuation of Conservative rule, but there's no denying that the political landscape has changed dramatically.

While the Conservative Party has won a majority in parliament, the progressive NDP party also had its biggest win in history; this shows the sharp polarization of Canadian politics and society. Only time will tell how this redrawn political map will affect Canada.
