The Votes are in: Same government

The Liberals are in again, but only as a minority though. For most, who saw the sponsorship scandal, and mismanagement of the gun registry funds, this was to be expected. Many want a fresh face, and the strong “right” Conservative Tories definitely showed that in the final results. The NDP or New Democrats, actually did better then I thought with their 19 seats, but during the middle of the ballet count, is looked as though they would have 25 seats! So here is the general layout according to the Vancouver Sun Tuesday, June 29th, 2004 and a little deeper look, Provence by Provence:

TOTAL SEATS

LIBERALS: 135
TORIES: 99
BLOC (Quebec) 54
NDP:19
Independent: 1

Starting at the East working West for each province:
……………………….Liberal……Torie…..Bloc…….NDP….Independent
Newfoundland:………..5…………2…………0………..0…………..0
Prince Edward Island:.4…………0…………0………..0…………..0
Nova Scotia:……………6…………3………….0………..3…………..0
Quebec:………………….21……….0………….54………0…………..0
Ontario:………………….75……….24………..0………..7…………..0
Manitoba:……………….3…………6………….0………..4…………..0
Saskatchewan:…………1………..13…………0……….0…………..0
Alberta:…………………..2………..26…………0……….0…………..0
British Columbia:…….8…………22………….0………5…………..1
Nunavut:………………..1………….0…………..0……….0…………..0
Northwest Territories:.1…………0…………..0………0…………..0
Yukon:……………………1…………0…………..0………0…………..0

Newfoundland, Ontario and the three territories are Liberal red, while Quebec is 90 percent Bloc and the Western provinces are Torie Blue. A government in Canada needs at least 155 seat to become a majority government, and the average length of time before a election is called for a minority government is 2 years.
