Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer ran his party's federal election campaign as a referendum on the performance of Justin Trudeau and the Liberals over the last four years.

Now the results are in: a minority government for Trudeau, a slightly larger caucus for the Conservatives — and new pressure on Scheer's leadership.

Beyond a promise to voters to make life more affordable through tax cuts, Scheer said Canadians should back Conservatives in this election because Trudeau had lost the "moral authority to govern" after the SNC-Lavalin scandal and the 'brownface' photos surfaced. A substantial number of Canadians didn't agree.
