Nice try, though.

He won because -- unlike in the U.S. -- the two biggest provinces (Ontario and Quebec) -- do actually have a majority of the votes. While the Conservatives (as always) dominated in the three "prairie" provinces getting over 60% in Saskatchewan and Alberta and 45% in Manitoba, they lost by 8% in Ontario and 18% in Quebec with the result that they only won 46 seats in those two provinces to 114 for the Liberals.
Sort of like in the U.S., while the popular vote matters in the individual ridings, the national popular vote total is meaningless.
(If you mean why the Conservatives lost, the Conservatives have always been the minority in Canada. Their chances of winning depend on the New Democrats doing just well enough to allow the Conservatives to win a large number of seats by narrow margins in three-way races. Enough progressive voters opted Liberal over the New Democrats to minimize the non-Quebec losses by the Liberals and the Bloc did well enough in Quebec that most of the seats lost by the NDP in Quebec went to the Bloc rather than the Conservatives.)

You have an election.
The party that wins the most seats has one of their members to be Prime Minister.
The way it has been for a very long time.
He was selected by about 25,000 voters in his riding.
Ten others ran against him.and had about the same number of votes amongst them.
Just like Trump he won by seat count not total voter count.
Once the polling stations close, election workers open the ballot boxes and count the ballots. The candidate who receives the most votes becomes the member of Parliament (MP) for that riding and represents it in the House of Commons. The political party that has the most MPs usually forms the government. The leader of the political party with the most members normally becomes the prime minister of Canada.

Canadian Politics are rife with so called 'liberals'.

More importantly, how did he win with just 33% of the vote?

He didn't. Justin Trudeau did.
