A new federal government is expected to be named Monday night, as Canada’s 2019 general election gets underway.
The main parties vying for the 338 seats in the House of Commons are Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, Jagmeet Singh’s New Democrats, and Elizabeth May’s Greens. The People’s Party of Canada, under former high-profile Tory Maxime Bernier, is running for the first time.
Polls are open in B.C. until 7 p.m. local time.
