With less than two weeks before the 2021 Federal Election, a neck and neck race between the incumbent Liberal candidate and Conservative candidate Sonny Spina could result in one of the tightest elections in years.
338Canada.com published their latest projections for the riding with Liberals climbing back into a slight lead over the Conservatives who took the lead in the second week of the campaign. The Liberals held a comfortable lead in the polls prior to the election call.
The local results continue to mirror a national trend that gives the leading Liberals a slight victory if the election was held today.
At the moment The Liberals could win a minority government (what they have now) or the Conservatives could also form a minority. No party currently has enough seats for a majority win. There’s still 11 days until Canadians head to the polls and the race could swing either way depending on how Federal leaders perform in national debates in both French and English tonight and Thursday evening.
Local candidates square off for the first time with the ONNtv debate scheduled for 1pm today with repeat broadcasts at 5pm and 7pm Wednesday evening.
