Thatsup Info (CANADA) All that remained to be seen is whether Justin Trudeau, son of one of Canada’s most legendary leaders, would be prime minister of a majority or minority government.
In the 2011 election, the Liberals under Justin Trudeau collapsed to just 34 seats and third place in the House of Commons. But they had added more than 120 additional seats by late evening, taking from both NDP and Conservatives and riding a wave of resentment toward Tory Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
