Comparisons with U.S. presidential elections are inexact because Canadians are voting, not state by state, but riding by riding for representatives in the House of Commons.

Still, some idea of the broad regional differences in Canada is given by this map showing the party with the most seats won in each province during the 2004 election:

Canada Election 2004

After national aggregation, here’s how the seats added up a year and half ago:

          Liberals        135 seats
          Conservatives    99 seats
          Bloc Quebecois   54 seats
          New Democrats    18 seats
          Other             1 seat

The total is 308 seats, and a party would need 155 seats to form an absolute majority.
