It might not be a majority.
As of Monday, September 20 at 10:50 p.m. the Liberals had secured or were leading in 153 ridings, compared with 119 for the Conservatives, according to CBC. For a Liberal majority, 170 seats would be needed.
In the lead up to September 20, Elections Canada warned that it may take several days to get a result, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent high volumes of special ballots and mail-in ballots.
The 44th federal election was announced by Justin Trudeau back on August 15 and the campaign lasted just 36 days in total — the minimum length permitted by law in Canada.
Previously, Canada's fixed-date election was set for October 2023.
