OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party is projected to form a government after Monday’s federal election, CBC TV said on Monday, following a tight national election that campaign pollsters said was too close to call.

The Liberals won power in 2015 and held 177 seats when the election was called. In Canada, a party must win 170 or more seats to secure a majority mandate.
