First polls open in Canada’s general elections

Voting began in Canada’s general election on Monday, with surveys predicting a minority government as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party risks losing its majority or even being toppled from office.

Polls opened at 11.00 GMT in the provinces of Labrador and Newfoundland, in eastern Canada, the first of the country’s six time zones. Polls will be open in far western British Columbia until 02.00 GMT Tuesday, although the first results are expected from 23.00 GMT.
