Road to majority government smoothly paved for Conservatives

The Conservative Party vote has been the most efficient in the last two elections and likely will be in October as well. During the last campaign, the party converted 35,200 votes, on average, into one seat, whereas both the NDP (43,800) and especially Liberal (81,900) vote was less efficient.
