Student Vote Results In Liberal Minority Government

Canada’s elementary and high school students would have elected a minority Liberal government, if the Student Vote project was legally binding.

The vote, part of a project that let 1.1 million students across the country learn about the issues and hear from local candidates cast a ballot resulted in 110 seats for the Liberals, compared with the 157 they won in the real vote Monday.

In the Student vote, the New Democrats with 99 seats, would be forming the official Opposition instead of the Conservatives with 94.  The Greens got 28 seats and the Bloc Quebecois 9.

But just like in real life, the Tories drew the greatest share of the popular vote, with roughly 25 per cent of students supporting them.
