Explainer-In tight Canada election, another minority government is likely

Opinion polls indicate no party will gain a majority of seats in the Canadian election on Monday, for the second straight time, leaving one of the two front-runners – Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or Conservative leader Erin O’Toole – trying to govern with a minority. Trudeau, who has led a minority government since 2019, called an early election in a bid to capitalize on the Liberals’ handling of the pandemic and swing to a majority. If Trudeau wins a majority of the 338 seats in the House of Commons, he will remain prime minister.
