Quick facts about our riding:

 Kootenay-Columbia is larger than some countries.

Spanning from Revelstoke to Cranbrook and Creston to golden, it covers over 64 thousand square kilometres.

There are just under 92 thousand voters in that area. But how does it compare to a riding in the city?

Vancouver Granville covers only 23 square kilometres and has just under 77 thousand electors. 

Let’s take a look at Nunavut. The riding covers 1.9 million square kilometers and has just over 18 thousand electors.

There are 338 seats in Parliament with varying degrees of size and population density.

Polls are now closed and we wait to see who will represent the Kootenay-Columbia riding.

In our first -past-the-post system, whoever gets the most votes will have an opportunity to form a government. If there is a majority, then the decision will made simple as was last election.

But if there is a minority they will vote along with their party and other MPs to form a government. This could mean a coalition between the Liberal Party and the NDP. But without 170 seats minimum, there’s a risk of a no-confidence vote. If a majority of MPs call for a new election, Canada may be at the polls very soon.
