CM – Trudeau vows to « get back to work » as Liberals win but fail to get a majority


Rachel Aiello Ottawa News Bureau online producer


Liberal leader Justin Trudeau vows to « get back to work » after receiving a second minority government in the 2021 general election, similar to the one elected by the Canadians in 2019.

« They’re sending us back to work with a clear mandate to get us through this pandemic and better days, » Trudeau said after pushing the country into the COVID-19 campaign in hopes of a third majority term in office .

With 338 seats available and no going to the estimated 170 needed for a majority, CTV News’ decision desk stated that at a pivotal point in the pandemic following a summer federal election, Liberals will remain in power like no other would.

“I hear you say you just want to get back to the things you love and not worry about this pandemic or a choice. That you just want to know that your MPs of all stripes are behind you in this crisis and beyond, ”said Trudeau early Tuesday morning at his campaign headquarters in Montreal.

« The moment we are facing requires really important changes and you have given this Parliament and this government a clear direction. »

Results from 2:45 p.m. EDT on Tuesday show that the Liberals were elected or led in 157 elections, although one elected MP will sit as an independent MP, the Conservatives run or have been elected in 120 elections, the Bloc Quebecois in 33 elections, the NDP in 26 rides and the greens in two rides.

Before that race, the Liberals held 155 seats, the Conservatives 119, the Quebecois Bloc 32, the NDP 24, the Greens two, and there were five independent MPs and one vacancy.

Trudeau called the federal election on August 15, ending his almost two-year minority parliament in which he hoped for a majority victory. In the coming days, the re-elected Trudeau will likely have to deal with an outcome that is not much, if anything, further ahead of his party than when he was elected on a sunny Sunday morning.

According to the first results, the distribution of seats in the lower house does not seem to shift significantly, so that the liberals have to find dance partners in other opposition parties again in order to pass important laws and stay afloat.

As the results continued to pour in, it became clear that Conservative leader Erin O’Toole’s plea for change was not going as well as his party had hoped. Turning to the other parties, the leader of the Bloc Quebecois, Yves-Francois Blanchet, has largely held his party’s seats before the call for elections, despite a surge in votes for candidates for NDP leader Jagmeet Singh leading the two parties into a heated battle for third-party placement. Greens chairman Annamie Paul and people’s party chairman Maxime Bernier did not manage to surpass the incumbent in their rites.

Thank you Canada for your vote, your trust in the Liberal team and your choice for a better future. We will end the fight against COVID. And we will move Canada forward. For everyone.

As he ushered the country into a fourth wave of federal elections, Trudeau portrayed his re-election offer as an opportunity for Canadians to speak out about whom they want to lead the country out of the COVID-19 crisis and into a new era of significant change.

But it seems that some of his opponents’ attempts to label him selfish or power hungry, including important policies like childcare, are jeopardized and stuck in the minds of voters.

Three Liberal Cabinet Ministers were ousted, with Bernadette Jordan in South Shore – St. Margarets, N.S., Maryam Monsef in Peterborough-Kawartha and Deb Schulte in King-Vaughan all lost to their Conservative opponents.

The first few weeks of this election were the bumpiest for Trudeau as protesters against vaccination became increasingly aggressive, the Afghanistan crisis dominated the headlines and the number of COVID-19 cases continued to rise.

During this time, Canadians seemed more serious about change, questioning why the elections were called in the first place, given the consistent support for progressive parties during the pandemic, despite Trudeau’s insistence that the chamber had become « toxic » and unusable on the face of the conservative obstruction.

After the debates and the release of the Liberals’ $ 78 million platform, polls began to run for the party, and then, when Trudeau marched across the country in one final push, the difference between the Liberals and O’Toole was in Regarding vaccines brought back focus.

Now expect the Liberal-led federal government to issue a vaccine mandate for federal agencies and finalize some unfinished business on climate change, indigenous reconciliation, and the « cession » in hopes of cementing a legacy policy Trudeau should his third win will be his last.

The prospect of avoiding a pandemic election may have recently been a motivating factor for the opposition parties to support the liberals, but whether this mood will also prevail in the 44th parliament remains to be seen. That will be the test for Trudeau when he convenes the House of Commons and presents a new speech from the throne.

Although the Conservatives made some gains, the Conservatives failed to dethrone Trudeau, despite the supporters having high hopes supported by competitive poll numbers throughout the campaign.

Early on the night of the election, Conservative Party officials tried to reject reports suggesting they would consider the Liberals a victory, but by midnight O’Toole Trudeau had called to admit.

Based on the results counted to 2:30 p.m. EDT, it appears that the Conservatives may have won the referendum again as the Conservatives did in 2019.

In his election night speech in Durham, Ontario, O’Toole spoke of being the leader to take on the Liberals in the next election. But the loss of the Tory has already raised questions about the fate of O’Toole’s leadership after its predecessor was removed after a fairly similar outcome in 2019.

« Ours is a conservatism that does not live in the past, but learns from it in order to secure the future, » he said. They are welcome in the Conservative Party of Canada. « 

As the polls tightened in recent days, O’Toole turned away from his « positive » campaign approach and cracked down on Trudeau in personal attacks while making it clear to potential voices that if their primary goal was a change of government, theirs The « only option » was to choose conservatively.

O’Toole described himself as a more moderate or progressive leader when he presented himself during his 2020 leadership race, which led to persistent questions about the direction the party would take in the event of an election on social and public security. To position himself as “the man with the plan”, O’Toole relied heavily on his guideline book throughout the race.

While running a campaign that relied heavily on virtually connecting to Canadians from a television studio that the party set up as a pandemic precaution, O’Toole has been about his refusal to say like many of his throughout the race Candidates have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

After getting ex-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney out to support him that same day, he promised that the party he heads is « not your father’s Conservative Party ».

After the Alberta Prime Minister announced new lockdown measures, O’Toole was confronted and repeatedly evaded the question of whether he still felt as he once said: that Kenney had dealt with the pandemic better than the federal government.

All night long, the Quebecois Bloc and the NDP were in a close race for third party status, although it appears that Blanchet may hold onto that position.

While the Quebecois Bloc’s hopes of increasing its number of seats in the House of Commons may have been dashed, the Bloc had a slight lead over the Liberals in Quebec at 1:30 a.m. in the referendum with nearly 1.12 million votes on Tuesday / p>
Having been touring Quebec for the past five weeks, Blanchet appeared to be getting its biggest boost in the province based on how he reacted to a question from the English-speaking guide’s debate host on Bill 21 about how unwanted the election was, he pointed out also that he prefers that no party wins a majority.

« The result is difficult to comment on, » said Blanchet in his speech on election night in French. “The percentage is pretty much the same. The number of seats is roughly the same. It’s pretty much the same for everyone. « 

Singh appeared to be victorious on election night, although his party position looked largely the same as before his aggressive cross-border campaign. Singh went on the offensive with « unlimited zeal » when the party believed it could win in key regions.

Singh used a sizeable following on social media, and also used platforms such as TikTok and Instagram to get his progressive message “Control the Rich” across to millions of Canadians.

The NDP leader relied heavily over the past 36 days on pointing out what the New Democrats could negotiate in the last minority parliament, while delivering a message of hope for a better future.

“We will never give up fighting for you and your families like we did in the pandemic, as we showed you in this campaign… We are connected. When the people around us hurt, we hurt too, but when we take care of each other, when we support each other, when we uplift each other, we all stand up, « said Singh.

After getting ranked low enough in the polls not to qualify to participate in the 2021 leaders’ debates, the ballot box highlighted the steady surge in support among Canadians opposed to the establishment, opposed to the lockdown, and against the vaccine are observed. While Bernier’s PPC couldn’t win a single seat, they received thousands of votes in many races.

And after a rocky debut as a leader due to an internal party conflict and tight financial situation, Paul spent most of the 2021 federal election campaign winning her own riding. Her third attempt failed, questions about her future at the head of this party will be discussed in the coming days.

On the one hand, the Green Party is sending more than one MP to Ottawa for the second time in its history, including the first time to represent an Ontario horseman.

On the flip side, the party appeared to be losing a significant portion of the voter support it received in 2019.

“I would say that we are back to the status quo, only that we are unfortunately returning more divided and polarized than before these elections were called. That is certainly part of the legacy of this election that we shouldn’t have had, whether it sounds selfish or not, « Paul said during her concession address at the Toronto Center.

Congratulations to @MarciIen for winning the Toronto Center and to all of the other candidates who applied for this community.
The Toronto Center is a riding arena that will continue to need help as we get out of the pandemic and beyond. Hopefully this support will be provided.

Right off the bat, the election campaign – the shortest possible election period under federal law – looked and felt different than any previous election due to the pandemic.

Itineraries were reduced, the tours of the top three travelers used quick tests daily and required everyone on board their buses or planes to be fully vaccinated, and instead of nightly jam-packed indoor rallies, virtual or outdoor events with elbow bumps and masked selfies have largely become the new norm.

There were three national debates, including one in English and one in French, organized by a Debate Commission; Parties have displaced their platforms and their costs at different times; Candidate controversies hit every party; and campaigns tried to use social media and traditional television advertising to promote their leader and contrast their opponents.

Canadians’ voting behavior has also changed in some ways compared to previous elections. Almost a million people voted by postal vote, a further 5.8 million took part in the four-day preliminary votes, an increase of 18.5 percent compared to the 2019 elections.

COVID-19 logs in some polling stations resulted in long lines and longer than usual waiting times at the polling stations. Elections Canada also reported a handful of glitches at polling stations across the country.

Although no widespread voting issues have been reported, due to the influx of local absentee votes, the final numbers will not be released until Tuesday lunchtime at the earliest.
