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.
