The Lib­eral Party of Canada hung on to power in the Oct. 21 fed­eral elec­tion but, with just 156 seats, it will be gov­ern­ing as a mi­nor­ity. We hit the streets in Cor­ner Brook and Stephenvil­le to find out what peo­ple thought of the out­come.


What do you think about the re­sults of the fed­eral elec­tion?

Dar­lene Hinks How­ley

I’m happy. It’s more per­sonal for me be­cause I didn’t re­ally like Mr. (An­drew) Scheer. I didn’t like the way it was kind of all name call­ing for him.

Gary Maxwell Cor­ner Brook

I ex­pected that the Lib­er­als would win it, but I was think­ing they would get a ma­jor­ity. It didn’t turn out that way.

Ma­lik At­touche St. John’s

I am new here. For me I like the re­sults, but I would have liked it with a ma­jor­ity.

Kelly Lee Stephenvil­le

I knew the Lib­er­als would win a mi­nor­ity gov­ern­ment but was sur­prised the NDP didn’t get more seats. I was dis­ap­pointed with the can­di­dates in this rid­ing for their lack of cam­paign­ing.

Leroy Hynes Stephenvil­le

There won’t be any­thing for the eastern prov­inces as Que­bec will get it all. If they think Trudeau will work with Singh, he won’t. He’s too much of a cry­baby and a power ad­dict. He’s cre­at­ing a res­i­den­tial school cri­sis by deny­ing Indige­nous peo­ple their ances­try.

Ge­orge Lee Bara­chois Brook

I voted for the per­son I knew, not the party. I lost all cred­i­bil­ity with Justin Trudeau dur­ing the SNC Lavalin af­fair. It was a strange elec­tion with hardly any cam­paign­ing, very few signs out, and one can­di­date liv­ing out­side the prov­ince. It didn’t make sense.
