Canada is headed for a federal election on Sept. 20

Canadians will head to the polls on Sept. 20.

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.

The federal Liberals continue to hold a lead in public polling, capturing 35.6 per cent of public support against 28.8 per cent for the Conservatives and 19.3 per cent for the NDP, according to CBC's Poll Tracker. That level of support puts them just in range of the 170 seats needed to form a majority government.

2. LOL, gotta say, we love how short the campaigns are here...

although they are more often around 40 days or so, 36 is perfect, imo.

Start the campaign, do the door-knocking, tv ads, campaign mail and, 36 days later, vote. Short and sweet.
