The northern part of America, extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometers with 37,602,103 people living there is Canada. In fact Canada’s population is mostly concentrated in its three largest metropolitan areas, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Mostly known by the Moose, Canada’s citizens are now welcoming the 43rd general election.
The Regular Reporter states that the 2019 election is in fact a mixture of many regional races, with their own issues and candidates politicizing daily. The House of Commons seats 338 people, but for a majority and one political party to win needs at least 170 seats. However, the last election in Canada back in 2015 were issued by Governor General David Johnston on August 4, with the Liberal Party led by Justin Trudeau, won 184 seats, allowing it to form a majority government with Trudeau becoming the next Prime Minister.
43rd Canadian Election Analysis
The 11th of September is the date for issuing this years elections in Canada, as Global News Canada informed. However, election day is on the October 21st, with only two parties — the Liberals and the Conservatives — have any realistic chance of emerging enough seats for government forming.
The current prime ministers party the Liberals have started with 177 seats, while they are more likely to lose seats in some parts of Canada, they are more keen on keeping more seats in Ontario and increasing many more seats in the Quebec area. While, Elizabeth’s May Green Party might be the one with the strongest campaigns ever, but on the other hand it won’t be enough to prevent the progressive vote setting on the Liberals.
The Conservatives are starting their campaign towards wining 169 seats, with their seats may being at risk, denying any risks with their solid background and motivation. But it also seems to be the party with the most difficult path for growth. In fact, they can count mostly on Alberta seats counting 34 with a good performance in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, with their 28 seats available. That is because many voters combine Scheer with the unpopular Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford.
Meanwhile, the Greens may surprise in New Brunswick, where the provincial wing of the party holds three seats, or even in P.E.I., where the provincial wing is the official Opposition to a Progressive Conservative premier. Their big chance if winning might be the southern end of Vancouver Island, where the Greens already hold two seats and are looking to steal one, two and maybe three from Jagmeet Singh’s New Democrats.
Who will be the next Prime Minister of Canada is hard to say, with so many good ones running this election. Only the time will tell. Best of luck wishes the Regular Reporter to all the candidates.
