FIGHT BACK STRATEGY PANEL: LIBERALS HANG ON TO POWER WITH A MINORITY GOVERNMENT – OCTOBER 22 2019

Libby Znaimer is joined by Karen Stintz, Former Toronto City Councillor, current CEO of Variety Village, Charles Bird, Managing Principal of Toronto office of Earnscliffe Strategy Group, and Semhar Tekeste, Senior Public Affairs Consultant at Enterprise Canada.

It’s official: Justin Trudeau has secured a second term as Prime Minister. This time, leading a minority Liberal government.

His party was just 13 seats away from reaching a majority. They now have 156 seats, whereas in the first term they had 177 seats. The federal Conservatives managed to secure 121 seats and won the popular vote, but not by a lot.

The NDP now have 24 seats in contrast to the 39 seats they held before the election.

The Greens under leader Elizabeth May have 3 seats now: the two they already had on Vancouver Island and a new one in Fredericton.

People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier had a bad night as he lost his Quebec riding of Beauce, which he held since 2006.

Libby and guests discuss the aftermath of election 43, what a minority Liberal government could mean for the country and more.
