OT­TAWA – Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau took a mo­ment on the morn­ing fol­low­ing the U.S. midterms to high­light the “his­toric” num­ber of women elected. As of early Wednes­day, Amer­i­can me­dia were pro­ject­ing ap­prox­i­mately 100 women would win seats in Congress, the largest num­ber ever. Across the United States, women cam­paigned in record num­bers in con­gres­sional and gu­ber­na­to­rial races. “That’s ob­vi­ously good news,” Trudeau said to re­porters on his way into the weekly Lib­eral cau­cus meet­ing on Par­lia­ment Hill. Democrats took con­trol of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, while Re­pub­li­cans held on to their ma­jor­ity in the U.S. Se­nate. Trudeau con­grat­u­lated all can­di­dates who put their names on the bal­lot, and said his gov­ern­ment looks for­ward to work­ing with the new mem­bers of Congress on “a broad range of is­sues, as we have in the past.”
