    Conservative – 123 (gain of 24 seats)
    Liberal – 103 (loss of 32 seats)
    Bloc Quebecois – 50 (loss of 4 seats)
    New Democrats – 31 (gain of 12 seats)
    Independent – 1 (unchanged)

    So pretty much the Liberals and Conservatives switched positions, although the Conservatives are in a lesser position due to some of the Liberals’ support going to the New Democrats, whose seats go up more than 50%.

    Greens took 4.4% of the vote, mainly in British Colombia, so the Cascadia region remains the Greens’ strongest region in North America. (Cascadia is Oregon, Washington State, and B.C., which by the way is a region that kinda wants to break away from the USA and Canada

    By the way, was looking at the results on theglobeandmail.com, and they list a Communist Party and a Marxist-Leninest Party. What’s the difference?

    Greens…almost 5% of the vote and no seats? Bummer. They need proportional representation in Canada. Are New Democrats moderate?

  3. Kyle B Says:

    The New Democrats are more liberal then the Liberal Party. New Democrats fit into the category of a party of the left while the Liberal Party is more in the center left

  4. Lucian Lior Says:

    Umm…according to CBC (Canadian Broadcastion Corporation) the results are as follows:

    Conservative Party – 124 seats – 36.25%
    Liberal Party – 103 seats – 30.22%
    Bloc Quebecois – 51 seats – 10.48%
    New Democratic Party – 29 seats- 17.49%

    Just thought I’d point out that error…

    Actually, I just haven’t had a chance to update the site since last night… so those were projected wins as of the time I went to sleep.

    Also, one independent did win.

  6. Deran Ludd Says:

    Actually, the Communist party menioned int he post above is sort of like the CP here. Kind of waht they used to call “eurocommunist back in the day. A non-revolutionary, democratic Left formation. The Marxist-Leninist Party is some sort of Maoist, or even “Hoxaist” (as in Enver Hoxa, for bolshevik despot of Albania) party.
