Canada’s tight election heads into final stretch

MONTREAL (HRNW) – Tensions are mounting four days ahead of Canada’s legislative elections as Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called on citizens to “vote strategically” to block a Conservative surge as he faces a potential defeat at the hands of rookie Tory leader Erin O’Toole.

According to polls, the two major parties that have ruled Canada since its 1867 confederation are in a statistical dead heat, each garnering the support of 32 percent of respondents, while the leftist New Democratic Party trails far behind.

If the numbers hold, Canada could see a repeat of the 2019 general election in which Trudeau’s once-mighty juggernaut party was reduced to a minority government.

“The fight is escalating between the two political parties,” pollster Jean-Marc Leger told .

And as none of the party leaders “seem to have made an impression on voters, it looks like it will be a vote by elimination rather than a vote based on convictions,” he said.
