40th Canadian Parliament

Conservative Party of Canada: 143 seats (+19 from 2006, 155 needed for majority)
Liberal Party: 76 (-27)
Bloc Québécois: 50 (-1)
New Democratic Party: 37 (+8)
Independents: 2

I find the contrasts and similarities in political campaigning intriguing. It's not that often we have two neighboring countries having simultaneous campaigns that we can compare.
