Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party have finally won a majority government that they have been seeking for the past decade. The New Democratic Party, led by Jack Layton, made huge gains, especially in Quebec. When all was said and done, the NDP nearly wiped out the Bloc Quebecois, shattered the Liberal Party, and came within striking distance of the Conservative Party.
Congratulations to all candidates that competed for a seat in Parliament. It was definitely a night of changes. The Liberal Party is in shatters, as this was their lowest showing in an election ever. The Bloc is likely finished for good, and the Green party finally managed to secure a seat in parliament. Here are the final results:
2011 CANADA FEDERAL ELECTION:
CONSERVATIVE PARTY: 167 SEATS
NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY: 102 SEATS
LIBERAL PARTY: 34 SEATS
BLOC QUEBECOIS: 4 SEATS
GREEN PARTY: 1 SEAT
