Ottawa(ANN)-Its official: The Trudeau Liberals have won a majority government, and the Conservatives will be looking for a new leader as Stephen Harper’s decade in power comes to an end. Canadians have a lot of questions about what that means, and what comes next.

Canada’s Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, the son of a popular former prime minister, won Monday’s general election in a landslide, television networks projected — a stunning defeat for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives.

Networks CBC and CT V projected the 43-year-old — who ran a combative campaign and offered up what he called a bold “new vision” for the nation — would form a majority government with more than 170 of the 338 seats in the House of Commons.

Public opinion had swung wildly during the hard-fought campaign, one of the longest in the country’s history, but final polling showed Mr Trudeau’s Liberals eight points ahead of Mr Harper’s Tories — an edge apparently borne out at the polls.

Early results showed the Liberals swept all 32 seats in Canada’s Atlantic Provinces, doubling their popular support in the region, and scored well in key Ontario and Quebec provinces.

Trudeau has re energized the Liberal Party since its worst electoral defeat four years ago when they won just 34 seats and finished third behind the traditionally weaker New Democrat Party.
Trudeau promises to raise taxes on the rich and run deficits for three years to boost government spending. His late father, who took office in 1968 and led Canada for most of the next 16 years, is a storied name in Canadian history, responsible for the country’s version of the Bill of Rights.
A bachelor when he became Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau dated actresses Barbra Streisand and Kim Cattrall and married a 22-year-old while in office.
Canada has shifted to the center-right under Harper, who has lowered sales and corporate taxes, avoided climate change legislation and clashed with the Obama administration over the Keystone XL pipeline.
The Trudeau victory will ease tension with the U.S. Although Trudeau supports the Keystone pipeline, he argues relations should not hinge on the project. Harper has clashed with the Obama administration over other issues, including the recently reached Iran nuclear deal.
