She'll be joined by our Ian Hanomansing, Adrienne Arsenault, Andrew Chang and David Cochrane to break down results riding by riding and chart the path to the Prime Minister's Office, along with analysis from our political insiders.

The special will also check in with correspondents across the country, with on-the-ground reaction at party headquarters and in key candidate ridings.

After that, hosts Ginella Massa and David Common will focus on voters' reactions in Canada Votes 2021: Voter Voices, and Heather Hiscox kicks off the next day's analysis and updates at 5 a.m. ET Tuesday with Canada Votes 2021: Morning Live
