The official campaign period for the upcoming October 21 federal elections will officially begin on Wednesday, September 11, when Current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets with Governor Julie Payette at 10:00 (local time) to ask for Parliament to be dissolved. Trudeau's Liberals and primary competitor Andrew Scheer's Conservatives, among others, will compete for the 338 seats in the House of Commons over a forty-day campaign period. Other parties include Yves-François Blanchet's Bloc Québécois and Elizabeth May's Green party.
The result of the October 21 election will determine which party gets to form the country's next government. Many are looking to this upcoming election as a referendum on Trudeau's four years as Prime Minister. Further, Trudeau's former attorney general was involved in a corruption scandal earlier this year, reflecting negatively on Trudeau, causing his approval ratings to sink significantly.
Individuals in Canada are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid any protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
