NDP leader Tom Mulcair says accepts the choice of Canadians with full humility.
The NDP started the campaign strong, but saw its hopes of forming the next government washed away by a sea of Liberal support.
Speaking to NDP supporters Mulcair says his party will continue to stand up for communities, jobs, families, a better environment, health care, and a better relationship with First Nations.
Mulcair says Liberal leader Justin Trudeau made ambitious commitments to Canadians and voters will have high expectations of the next parliament.
Mulcair thanked both Trudeau and Stephen Harper during his speech.
