Not a fan of the Conservative party, but Scheer was bland enough to be palatable. Not sure who would replace Scheer. Raitt is out. Would Ambrose make a come back?

Just because Raitt is out doesn’t mean she can’t run to replace Scheer.

You mean holding a by-election in Alberta somewhere down the road for her to show up at the House of Commons again?

Won't she be... may I say... too Albertanized by the time the next election comes around?

Actually the bigger names I can think of are all "out" at the moment anyway (MacKay, Ambrose... Raitt... Kenney?)

Liberals win the most seats, Conservatives get the most votes, a Hilary Clinton type loss for Scheer, probably not good enough showing for him to stay leader for long.

The biggest dissapointment of this whole election for me is the gains made by the Bloc. I literally hate that. They do not represent the country, but would rather see it rattled and shaken, or even worse, torn apart. And now, because of a Liberal win, we will begin to hear idiots out west thumping their chests for independence.

I hate seperatists, regardless if they are from the east or from the west.

I don't know how much confidence she would inspire at a leadership convention having just lost her seat. I would imagine she's not going to run.

You're actually really lucky they have only 32 seats, with the tiniest bit more votes they would have had 40+. They're losing several seats by a hair to the Libs (who are extraordinary lucky with FPTP splits - annoyingly so, there's something really irksome seeing a liar get so richly rewarded for lying).

There are other alternative parties even if they have such a hate on for the Liberals.
I don’t think that’s it. My riding in Regina voted NDP last time. All 3 Regina ridings voted Conservative this election. Including Regina-Wascana which Ralph Goodale has held since 1993. People love Ralph. They dislike Justin Trudeau that much. We were talking about the election at work last week and a co-worker was talking about how they voted Liberal in the last election and we’re voting Conservative this time. The reasoning was they felt let down by Trudeau and NDP or Green Party felt like a wasted vote because even if they won the riding, they wouldn’t win the election. I don’t agree with that, but I understand why they feel that way, and they aren’t alone in their thinking.

Oh and maybe Alberta Separatism will start being a factor now. (No idea, just saying.)

So Jagmeet Singh barely wins his own seat and the party's representation is down to 25. What happens there?

If they haven't learned anything from 2015 they'll immediately toss him into the trash can like Mulcair and try their luck with someone (anyone!) else.

What a (political) monoculture the prairies is. Just a sea of blue.

Looks like Canada's "flyover country."

Looking at the map it seems clear to me the party tearing this country apart are the liberals.

I guess this means we can count out electoral reform for the foreseeable future.

Moreso than others like the Tories?

I do not think any party really is, BTW.

With the CPC winning the popular vote, I'm wondering if there could be enough support for electoral reform - NDP and Greens would definitely say yes, CPC might (they'd govern right now, based on popular vote) but the Bloc normally benefits from FPTP even though recently they were at the exact anti-sweet spot (25% of the vote in 3- and 4-ways races, winning nearly nothing) so maybe that's something they'd consider.

They could count on pretty much always having 25%-35% of Quebec seats, rather than sometimes having nearly two-thirds of Quebec seats and other times having barely a handful (and sometimes, like today, being in the middle of their range).
