Ottawa, Canada, September 20: On Monday, 20th September, Canada time, millions of Canadians will flock to their nearest polling station to cast their votes.
With hours left before Election Day, a new poll finds Liberals and Conservatives locked in a dead heat with the latter inching ahead by just one per cent in the national popular vote.
The Jagmeet Singh-led NDP has been ranked third in the opinion polls and is likely to improve from its current strength of 24 MPs
Liberal Leader and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is seeking re-election, began this year’s campaign with a 14-point lead over Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole.
But with one day left on the campaign trail, the poll found that lead has dramatically decreased. Now, just 28 per cent of Canadians surveyed said Trudeau would make the best prime minister while 27 per cent said O’Toole would make the best leader.
The NDP’s Jagmeet Singh has had a surprising rise, sitting at a close third with 23 per cent of respondents saying he would be “best suited” to lead the country.
It is almost certain that Jagmeet will be in the king maker position.
