"It is striking to me that the Liberals held the seat that might have been most vulnerable to voters pushing back on Trans Mountain", said fellow UBC political scientist Kathryn Harrison.

"I was anxious about a Conservative minority and so the fact that its a liberal minority with the NDP and the greens and hanging onto a fair amount of their seats was positive for me", said another.

He, and those closest to him, were adamant Tuesday that he will remain in place, though there was grumbling among those farther away from his orbit about the party's failure to capitalize on the multiple scandals around the Trudeau Liberals.

Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet won his seat and his party's showing makes the Bloc a potential power broker in a Parliament with a minority government.

Scheer also characterized Monday's results that way. "But I think a lot of people in that riding in general are people who say, 'Well, we have to balance jobs and environment'". "This is a first step".

In the days leading up the 2019 Canadian election, polls across the board had the Conservatives and Liberals in a deadlock when it came to overall support - and while the seat count doesn't reflect a tie, both parties managed to split the popular vote on Monday, with the Tories holding onto a slight edge late into the night.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said Tuesday he won't negotiate an arrangement with the Trudeau government in public.

The Bloc Quebecois, once written off in Quebec after a poor showing in 2015 and internal dissent that almost threatened the party's future, has captured 32 seats. "I will continue to be opposed to it, and I want real action on fighting the climate crisis", he said.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford says he's ready to work with the newly re-elected Liberal government in Ottawa.

Johnston said one message for Conservatives is that playing to more extreme base of supporters does not result in seats in suburban areas surrounding major cities like Vancouver and Toronto, needed to form government.

While he praised the campaign for successfully holding Mr. Trudeau to a minority, he pointed to issues that plagued Mr. Scheer during the election, such as his positions on abortion and same-sex marriage, as well as his dual Canada-U.S. citizenship and questions about the accuracy of his résumé.

Trudeau made a similar appearance the morning after the Liberals won the 2015 election, surprising commuters in Montreal who were not expecting to see the prime minister on their way to school or work.
