It is the morning after a Federal Election and this what we know:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will remain Prime Minister of Canada. He won with a minority government in a much similar pattern as he won in 2019. With results early on Tuesday show the Liberals elected or leading in 157 ridings, though one elected MP will be sitting as an independent, the Conservatives leading or elected in 120 ridings, the Bloc Quebecois in 33 ridings, the NDP in 26 ridings, and the Greens in two ridings.
