We can't do that in Canada. As I mentioned in another post recently, Canadian politics are tumultuous, unpredictable, and with notoriously high turnover rates, to the point that Canada, of all nations that use an FPTP election system, is said to have no "safe seats" and no "reliable solid <insert party> territory."

do you guys call the results like the uk with the returning officers?

No they put the counts directly with an update like America but they don't call the winner before at least 50% counted :)

They do like Virginia but for everything

God...you're fine with NPD vs Tory monarchy xD

patine is ok with monarchy I believe. from what i saw more people would support the npd if they were pro monarchy from what i heard the green party leader is a monarchist and that odd considering the uk green party and the green party in other commonwealths are anti monarchy,

From what I saw in Quebec and Canada in 2015, they wait a bit more than the American, they do as you do for the close races but for every seats untill to be sure.

The Federal NDP hasn't mentioned the Monarchy openly as a campaign plank since Broadbent was leader (late P.E. Trudeau and most of the Mulroney days), and provincial governments have no individual Constitutional say in that issue.

When I was talking about monarchy with @Patine I talked about something like a Conservative ruling over his province for...what... 40 or 60 YEARS?

Untill 2015 ^^.

only 46% reporting with Northam havign a 2 point lead.

The Northern Virginia counties tend to report their returns later than the rest of the state. This might explain the closeness. Ed did extremely well in sw Virginia, but Democratic turnout was high in those DC suburbs.
