They aren't called yet, the polls there are starting to close down.

Liberals will probably lead quite early because of the Maritimes...

There will no longer be a ban on the premature release of election results, under reforms announced this morning in Ottawa by Canada's minister of democratic reform.

The lifting of the blackout on reporting election results until all polls close across the country post them ends a longstanding practice that has been challenged in recent years by the rise of social media and the internet.

Quote:
Elections Canada found the ban impossible to enforce because of social media and the internet. They gave up "monitoring premature release of data."[5] The plan is not just supported by the Conservatives, "Repealing the ban is consistent with recommendations by the Chief Electoral Officer, who highlighted the difficulties associated with enforcing the ban in his report following the 41st general election."

Polls just closed in the Maritimes now.

May God have mercy on our souls, our wallets, and the Canadian dollar.

Looks like I may not have to go out to vote then, but if it gets close it only takes me 10 minutes to do it.

premature release of a liberal lead will scare many on the fence types into voting for conservatives out west.

Probably the cons will win most of Alberta without your vote. But, the Libs are riding a huge wave in Atlantic Canada, that has the less cautious predicting a Lib majority. As a commentator said, they've already won almost as many seats in Atlantic Canada as they had total for the whole country last time.

Better go and vote.

I saw that. 10 minutes ago it was looking like a mixed bag, so it must be fairly close in some ridings.

I still want a conservative minority with Liberal opposition. I suppose vice-versa would be okay as well, but Trudeau is a man I have no faith in.

And many ridings with huge margins, defeating incumbents.

interesting and possible. quite a bit of blue signs out here. not many signs at all around my general area, seems to have a high occurrence of vandalism. but the signs i have seen have been mostly blue.

my mother just went out to most likely vote liberal. same with my grandma.
