Liberals Take Strong Majority In Canada

From CBC news:
"Justin Trudeau will be Canada's next prime minister after leading the Liberal Party to a stunning majority government win, dashing the hopes of Stephen Harper, who had been seeking his fourth consecutive mandate, CBC News has projected."

 From CBC election reporting:

Red is Liberal 
Blue is Conservative
Orange is New Democrat
Light blue is Quebec

You wouldn't know the Liberals won from this map if you didn't know Canada a bit.  The big red area on top is sparsely populated Arctic region.  But the red is also in the major cities - Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec - where most of the population is.

The original map on the CBC website is interactive, so you can see those tiny city pockets of red easier.

Here's Trudeau's victory speech, alternating between French and English.
