Politics: the coming Canadian election, part 0

Self-tutoring about the coming election here in Canada: the tutor begins….

Monday, October 21, 2019, Canadian voters once again have a decision to make.

Irretrievably academic, I began research by looking up the rules for election dates. When I was a kid, I recall an election could be held up to five years after the previous one. In such a case, this election is coming a year early.

Apparently, Canada now has a fixed election date: the third Monday of October, four years following the previous election year. I guess Harper’s Conservatives brought it about in 2007.

Fixed election dates are rather American, if you ask me. No disrespect: I love the United States. I just think they should continue being American, while we should continue being Canadian:)

I’m sure I’ll be posting more about the coming election, and about politics in general.
