And…the writ has been dropped!
While you were enjoying your long weekend, Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited the Governor General to dissolve parliament and to call for elections. The election campaign will last 78 days, the longest campaign since 1872. Election day is on 19 October, 2015.
As the federal parties ramp up their election promises and pinpoint key issues for Canadians, we at Ceasefire.ca are working hard to give you the information and analysis you need to make sense of it all.
