Where to Watch the 2019 Canadian Federal Election in MTL

The 2019 federal election is today! After 40 days of campaigning around the country, politicians and citizens alike will cast their votes today to elect members of the 43rd Canadian Parliament. Here’s how to watch this election in Montreal!

But before you sit down and start watching… Know that it’s going to be close! The two leading parties, Liberal and Conservative, are neck-in-neck in the polls, with 32.0% and 31.6% of voting intentions respectively, according to CBC’s poll tracker.

To add to the suspense, the Bloc Québécois has made considerable gains over the Conservatives in Quebec since the start of October, and are now in close-2nd place to the Liberals (30.2% vs. 33.2%). This puts them ahead of the NDP in seat projections nationally (39 vs. 35), meaning either party could hold the balance of power in the case of a minority government. In Western Canada, the NDP is in close-3rd to the Liberals, and in Atlantic Canada, they’re close behind the conservatives.

The Green Party holds 7.5% voting intentions nationally (double digits in B.C. and Atlantic Canada) but is only expected to win between 1 and 6 seats.

Long story short, this is going to be an exciting election, and possibly a late night if you’re watching tonight! Without further ado, here’s where to watch!
