24 hours to go: final day of federal campaign will be anything but sedate


OTTAWA — In 24 hours, it will be up to Canadians — but until then it’s coming down to the wire.

The contenders in Monday’s federal election are staging one final, frantic barrage of sales pitches before voters go to the polls, and they’re doing it in and around Vancouver, where a host of seats are still up for grabs.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer kicks off his day in Stanley Park before visiting a number of local ridings, culminating in a rally at a hotel near the city airport.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is also on the West Coast, staging visits with voters and candidates in Port Moody and Surrey, B.C., before a final rally in Victoria.

The NDP’s Jagmeet Singh is also in the region, mainstreeting in Vancouver and Surrey, B.C.

Green Leader Elizabeth May is expected to focus on her home territory of Vancouver Island, while People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier wraps up his campaign in his Quebec riding of Beauce.

  1. As reported by True North News (www.tnc.news), there is expected to be a serious problem in this election with fraudulent voters – people who are not eligible to vote but who have received voter cards. Elections Canada is admitting this is a deep problem. Some honest whistleblowers have come forward who received the cards and were concerned about the integrity of the Canadian election. I do not trust the Liberals and Elections Canada to guarantee a fair election, given Trudeau’s interference in everything. To all voters and scrutineers: Please be vigilant and report anything that seems odd while you are at the polls.
