Looks like about 10k machines a part of the DDoS attack:
NDP voting disruption deliberate, hard to track - Politics - CBC News

Scytl has identified more than 10,000 IP addresses, mostly in Canada, and that could help identify the people behind the attack, which slowed down voting and denied party members access to the website used for voting.
The firm is now conducting a forensic investigation, a spokeswoman said.
An NDP spokeswoman wouldn't speculate on what the report might say or whether it would spark a police complaint.
"People who are able to pull off these kinds of things are very good at covering their tracks," Sally Housser said. "Whether there's a police complaint] depends on when we receive more information. We’re not going to speculate until we have further information."
The Scytl release says "the required organization and the demonstrated orchestration of the attack indicates that this was a deliberate effort to disrupt or negate the election by a knowledgeable person or group."
