  A by-the-numbers look at the federal election campaign, and voting day OTTAWA — After a campaign that started on Sept. 11, voters head to the polls Monday to mark their ballots in Canada's 43rd general election.

OTTAWA — The Canadian Press is projecting that the Liberal party will win the most seats in the 2019 federal election, giving them the best chance to form the next government.

Whether Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau wins a majority, however — or can reach an arrangement with another party to sustain a minority government — is yet to be determined.

The Liberals left Atlantic Canada with a commanding lead, down just a few seat from their sweep in the region in 2015, and the gains Conservatives made as more westerly votes were counted were not enough to make up the difference.

  Federal election results give carbon tax a chance to continue with Liberal gov't OTTAWA — Canada's national price on pollution appears destined to live on as election results suggested the Liberals would win the most seats in the federal election. So will the legislation that overhauled environmental assessments for major projects like pipelines, which along with the carbon tax were the catalysts for anti-Liberal sentiment in oil-rich Alberta. Justin Trudeau's Liberals are poised to lead the next government with the NDP and Greens winning enough seats to back him up and even give him some stronger nudges on climate policy.

The New Democrats have been reduced to a rump in Quebec thanks to a resurgent Bloc Quebecois taking back numerous seats from the NDP.

With ballots yet to be counted in many British Columbia ridings, expected to be the Green party's likeliest territory for pickups, the Greens are still enjoying a commanding lead in the New Brunswick riding of Fredericton.

Regionalism is nothing new .
Scott Matthews: Politics are not significantly more regionalized today than they were in 2015. But Quebec is the anomaly.A prominent theme in the wave of commentary on last week’s election is Canada’s increasing regionalism. Indeed, it’s hard not to see a reflection of the highly fragmented politics of the 1990s in the outcome of Oct. 21, 2019, particularly looking at the colouring of Elections Canada’s map of national results.
