BREAKING | Justin Trudeau Elected Prime Minister of Canada with Majority Government

History was made tonight as Canadians elected a Majority Liberal Government. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, 43, son of late PM Pierre-Elliott Trudeau, has swept the nation’s votes with 188 ( 161 elected | 27 projected) seats.A�Stephen Harper has been defeated after 10 years of leadership and has since resigned as CPC leader. Campaigners led a tightA�78 dayA�race, and a shock was felt across the nation when a Majority was voted in the 42nd Parliament.

A�

The Liberal Party cut a dominating swath through the Atlantic region, then stormed into Ontario, Quebec and the Prairies as the first two waves of federal election results flooded in Monday, the beginning of the end of a historic, drawn-out campaign that saw political fortunes fluctuate dramatically.

A�

Both CBC and CTV television networks declared Justin Trudeaua��s Liberals the winners shortly after polls closed in five provinces atA�9:30,A�though it remained unclear if they were in majority territory or not.
