A new Nanos Poll suggests that the Robocall scandal has had no effect on the Governing Tories. The poll took place between February 25-29 and asked 1,203 random Canadians who were above the age of 18. The poll is accurate within 2.8% 19 times out of 20. It found a steady hold for Tories, 1.9% jump for the Liberals and 0.2% decline for the NDP among respondents.

Below is a comparison of the parties’ standings in the last poll and the election.

On Monday, the longest campaign in modern history will come to a close and if current polls are any indication, Canada may be seeing a change in government after 9 years of Conservative rule under the leadership of Stephen Harper. Accountability was his calling card in 2006 and today, accountability may very well be one of the defining reasons for his departure.

In its length, in its cost and in its debate schedule, this election is unusual. The first and possibly only real debate of the campaign ended and here are the highlights of what happened.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper left Rideau Hall this morning with Governor General David Johnston’s approval to drop the writ and Canadians are now officially headed to the polls on October 19. For the first time since fixed election date legislation was brought in by the Conservative government, a fixed election date has been followed.
