The Liberals Are Predicted To Win Canada’s 2021 Federal Election With Justin Trudeau As PM

The results of Canada's 2021 federal election are almost in, and CBC and CTV have officially predicted a Liberal government, which means Justin Trudeau will be the Canadian prime minister once again.

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.

The Canadian federal election was officially called as a minority victory for Justin Trudeau over two weeks ago, but one of the country's ridings has only just been formally decided.

The riding of Chateauguay-Lacolle near Montreal was finally called on Thursday, October 7, for the Liberals in a nail-biting finish that saw the winner decided by just 12 votes.
