Trudeau’s Liberals win Canada election: TV projections

Canada’s Liberal party led by Justin Trudeau, the son of a popular former prime minister, won Monday’s general election, television networks CBC and CTV projected — a victory that ends nine years of Conservative rule.

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

The 43-year-old Trudeau — the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau, considered the father of modern Canada — is expected to succeed Stephen Harper as prime minister.
