Election 2019: where parties posted their worst 25 results

By Samantha Wright Allen      

The Conservatives and NDP had their poorest returns in Quebec, the Liberals had biggest losses in Alberta, and the Green Party shared their lowest count between Alberta, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.

Different parts of the country doled out bad vote counts for the six major parties, though Alberta and Quebec voters were the most discerning with some parties.

Fielding 338 strong candidates can be tough, as is organizing that many campaign teams to turn out a respectable level of support on election day. That rang more true for a few parties in certain parts of the country: Quebec and Alberta voters gave some parties their worst results this election, with the bulk of candidates who appeared in the five parties’ bottom 25 coming from the provinces where separatists sentiments are on the rise.
