Canada-2019-Election-min

Federal election 2019 officially launched – At 10:00am September 11th 2019, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau entered Rideau Hall in Ottawa to meet with Governor General Julie Payette and asked her to dissolve the 42nd Parliament of Canada. Trudeau came out the doors 45 minutes later, first giving tribute to the victims of the September 11th 2001 terrorist attack in New York. He then announced the official launch of the 2019 Federal election campaign that will take place across Canada on October 21st and spoke to Canadians about what the Liberal party accomplished in their four-year mandate, ending with, ‘Will we go back to the failed policies of the past? Or will we continue to move forward? That is the choice’, referring to the cuts and austerity measures of the Conservative party.

Federal election 2019 officially launched

For 40 days, Federal party leaders will campaign across the country, selling their party’s platforms, making promises and introducing their candidates – in hopes of gaining the support of voters in a total of 338 ridings. The Liberal party held a majority government with 177 seats in the House of Commons and the Conservative party with 95 seats, forming the official ‘opposition’. The balance of seats were held by the NDP with 39, the Bloc Quebecois 10, Green Party 2, Co-operative Commonwealth Federation 1, People’s Party 1 and Independents with 8 seats. Voters will decide whether the country is heading in the right direction or if change is needed.

Recent campaign polls show the Liberal party with a slight lead over the Conservative party led be Andrew Scheer. Jagmeet Singh’s NDP party and the Green Party led by Elizabeth May are much lower in the polls at only 10% of voter’s intentions. There will be two official debates that will take place at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, QC: The English debate will be held on October 7th and the French debate on October 10th.
