Canada's Liberal Party wins historic elections
Oct.20, Ontario: Canada's Liberal Party led by Justin Trudeau has decisively won parliamentary elections, ending nearly a decade of Conservative Party rule. The Liberals are leading in 185 electoral districts.
The 43-year-old Trudeau, the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau, considered the father of modern Canada, led his party's stunning electoral performance in a federal election on Monday, Canada's local media reported.
Trudeau's Liberals were on track to win 174 of Parliament's 338 seats, according to Elections Canada.
Speaking after the polls closed, he said he had already congratulated Trudeau, saying the Conservatives would accept the results "without hesitation".
His party said Harper would resign as leader of the Conservatives. To form a majority government, a party needs 170 seats in the 338-member parliament.
