The Heat: Justin Trudeau’s Liberal party wins in Canada

The Heat

Monday’s federal election in Canada was viewed as a referendum on Justin Trudeau who had a difficult first term, rocked by scandal.

Trudeau’s liberal party is projected to win 157-seats, 13 short of a majority. The Conservatives are expected to win 121 seats, and the New Democratic Party will secure 24-seats in the 338-seat parliament. Quebec’s separatist party, the Bloc Quebecois, fared better with 32 seats.
