Canada’s Trudeau wins second term but falls short of a majority

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a second term in Canada’s national elections with most seats in Parliament. The results were a shock to many as a series of scandals had tarnished Trudeau’s image as a liberal icon.  However, falling short of a majority meant the Liberals would have to rely on an opposition party to pass legislation.

With results still trickling in early on Tuesday, the Liberals had 157 seats 13 short of the 170 needed for a majority in the 338-seat House of Commons.
