Election Results & Voter Turnout

 
 

TORONTO - Canada has a dramatically new political landscape, after voters managed to turn right and left at the same time in the 41st general election.

Elections Canada reported 61.4 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots in Monday's election, according to preliminary results Tuesday morning.

That’s not the lowest turnout ever recorded, Elections Canada's historical data shows.

In the last general election in 2008, turnout was just 58.8 per cent.

Locally, Conservative Jim Hillyer captured over 27-thousand votes...or 56-per cent support.
He spoke to the media last night - in one of his first interviews since he cancelled his appearances at public forums.
He says he plans to make health care a priority going forward. He also says he'd like to keep up an "open-door policy" at his campaign office.

Mark Sandilands of the NDP came in second followed by Michael Cormican of the Liberals.
Cailin Bartlett with the Green Party and Geoffrey Capp of the Christian Heritage Party...came in fourth and fifth respectively.

The N-D-P won 102 seats, Jack Layton says he will honour the responsibility of being Official Opposition leader.
Michael Ignatieff says he takes responsibility for his party's worst-ever election showing after losing his own seat...the Liberals won only 34 seats, leaving it in third place.
Gilles Duceppe also failed to win his seat & has resigned as Bloc Quebecois leader after his party was reduced to only four seats.
Green Leader Elizabeth May won her B-C riding, and will become her party's first-ever M-P.
