The last time the Conservative Party of Canada won a federal election was just over 10 years ago. Stephen Harper’s party won 39.6 per cent of the vote and 166 seats. He benefited from an epic setback for the Liberals under Michael Ignatieff, who lost 43 of the party’s seats and finished third behind the NDP with about 19 per cent of the vote.

But Ignatieff didn’t just lose those votes — Harper won them. He pulled 44 per cent of the vote in Ontario and 73 of the 106 seats. In B.C., he claimed 45 per cent of the vote and 21 of 36 seats.
