A new federal government will be named tonight, as Canada’s 2019 general election wraps up and the votes are being counted.
The main parties vying for the 338 seats in the House of Commons are Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, Jagmeet Singh’s New Democrats, and Elizabeth May’s Greens. The People’s Party of Canada, under former high-profile Tory Maxime Bernier, is running for the first time.
Polls were open in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge until 7 p.m. Here are the candidates who are running. We’ll be following them and the poll results.
