UPDATE: OH CANADA!!!
Canadians awarded Conservative Leader Stephen Harper with a minority government Monday, putting an end to more than 12 years of Liberal rule.
Polls across the country are now closed and results are pouring in.
As of 12:10 a.m. ET, the Conservatives were in a commanding lead with 125 seats, compared to 102 for the second place Liberals.
But prime minister designate Harper will be denied the 155 seats he will need to lead a Tory majority.

Canadian voters, saying they were fed up with financial scandals and ready for a change, ended the 12-year run of the ruling Liberal Party on Monday, ousting Prime Minister Paul Martin in favor of a Conservative Party likely to steer a path closer to the United States.
Nearly complete returns in the national election gave a strong victory to Conservative leader Stephen Harper, 46, a political strategist from western Canada who jokes about being dull. He shrugged off Martin’s accusations that he is too cozy with U.S. conservatives for liberal-leaning Canada, the same accusations that crippled his candidacy in 2004.

Tory Leader Harper scored a victory because of strong, long-sought gains in Ontario and a Liberal collapse of historic proportions in Quebec.
But he was denied a majority government, meaning his administration will be far tamer than the mighty Liberal and Tory majorities of the last 20 years. With just over 120 seats, Harper will have to rely on the support of at least one opposition party to survive in the 308-seat House of Commons, and every piece of legislation may have to be negotiated.
The Liberals managed to avoid a rout, holding on to just over 100 seats down from the 133 they won in the 2004 election.
