Executing the election day

Millions of Canadians will cast their ballots in person on Monday, in the culmination of this country’s 44th federal election. But is Canada’s electoral system ready for a deluge of democratic action?

Striving for the 905

The House takes a deep dive into the 905 region around Toronto, that holy grail of political campaigns with its numerous, sometimes fickle ridings. King–Vaughan is all that and more, being the site of one of the angry protests against Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau early in the campaign.

The vaccine mandate debate

The debate over mandatory vaccination and vaccine passports has been an animating factor in this election, as the major parties trade barbs and the issue energizes the People’s Party of Canada. 

At the beginning of May, The House featured a debate between Prof. Françoise Baylis and Dr. Anna Banerji. The two rejoin the program to talk about what they got right and wrong about the prospect of vaccine passports — and what should be done now.

It was a Liberal stronghold before the NDP broke through there in 2011, only for the Grits to regain the seat four years later. Can the NDP break back into the 416?

Planning the final push

With just two full days of campaigning left, there’s only one overarching goal remaining: get out the vote.

A panel of current party strategists — the Liberals’ Navdeep Bains, Dan Robertson of the Conservatives and the NDP’s Jennifer Howard — convene on this last weekend of the campaign to discuss how the war rooms are responding to last-minute messaging issues and how they’ve planned the pell-mell sprint to the finish.
