Justin Trudeau to Become New Canadian PM

Justin Trudeau will become Canada's next prime minister after leading his Liberal Party to a commanding victory in Tuesday's parliamentary elections.

The Canadian Broadcasting Company is projecting the Liberals will win more than 180 seats in the 338-seat Parliament, with outgoing Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservative Party winning 104 seats and the left-leaning New Democratic Party finishing a distant third with 36 seats.

Trudeau claimed victory before a crowd of cheering supporters in Montreal late Monday night, saying the campaign proved "this is what positive politics can do" and that he hoped it will serve as "an inspiration to like-minded people to step up and pitch in.”  READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON VOA NEWS WEBPAGE
