Today is election day for Canada parliament | Beaufort County Now | Trudeau's early election scheme looks like it will backfire on him

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called an early parliamentary election in the hopes of securing a majority so he would no longer have to govern as a minority government, but it looks like that scheme will backfire on him if the polling is accurate.  His Liberal Party is projected to lose seats instead of gain them.

Will polls showing a lead by the Conservative Party hold up?  Will the Conservatives gain enough seats to form a majority government or will they be able to form a coalition with other parties like the Quebec nationalists who have openly embraced a Conservative-led national government?  How will other minor parties of the right perform, such as the western separatists of the Maverick Party, or the Populist Party of Canada.  The Populists have been polling as high as 12% in some polls and with its base largely concentrated in Ontario may pick up some seats.  It is the only party openly campaigning against virus lockdowns and vaccine passports.

One good thing is that Canada uses paper ballots, not vote processing companies like Dominion, so the count is much more likely to be honest.  It also requires photo voter ID throughout the country, which discourages vote fraud.

In the end, there was very little change in Canada. Trudeau's gambit for a majority failed, but he is still in a position to continue to lead a minority government, with almost no change in seats held by the major parties. The new populist party received 5.1%, mostly in Ontario, and split the vote allowing some Liberals to squeak back in. In the west, the Maverick Party got 0.97%, with many of its supporters heeding calls to vote tactically and back the Conservatives.
