ELXN 2021: Is this the most important federal election in Canadian history?

Posted on August 28, 2021

We’ve been hearing the drums beating since the spring. A federal election is on the horizon. Maybe early summer, maybe mid-summer. Well, here we are in the first week of the 44th federal election campaign. Is this what Canadians want? 

The federal Liberals have governed through the pandemic with a minority government propped up by the NDP. In this country we have fixed election dates. This election comes early as there was no need to have one until 2023 unless the government lost a vote of confidence on a money Bill. That hasn’t happened. 

Pollsters have been touting the Grits are within striking distance of a majority, which many observers say is the driving force behind this election. Many see it as opportunistic of the Liberals to call it while the country deals with the fourth wave of the pandemic, fuelled by the highly contagious Delta variant. 

At the same time, BC is being ravaged by wildfires, ground penetrating radar continues to find more children victims of the residential school system and just last weekend, 20 years of work in Afghanistan went up in smoke as the Taliban (remember them?) has taken control of the country again.
