After leading Canadians through a pandemic over the past year and a half, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called an election.
Following a meeting with Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau this morning, Gov. Gen. Mary Simon approved his request to dissolve Parliament, triggering the issuing of the election writs and formally beginning Canada’s 44th federal election.
The campaign will last 36 days — the minimum campaign length permitted by law.
In spite of the constant interference of the opposition parties, namely the Erin O’Toole’s Conservative Party, and Jagmeet Singh’s NDP, Canada is leading the world in the percentage of population of vaccinated against the COVID-19.
