(Reuters) - Canada’s Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper has won his seat in the election, CTV News said on Monday, as the Liberal party toppled his ruling party in a stunning victory.

Harper, who has been prime minister for almost a decade, was elected to Parliament as a member of parliament in Calgary, in oil-rich Alberta, in March 2004.
