338Canada federal update: Steady as they go

Election season appears to have come to an end in Canada for 2020. Since September, three provinces sent their voters to the polls amid the intensifying covid-19 pandemic: New Brunswick, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. It is worth noting that all incumbent parties in these provincial elections were re-elected to majorities in their respective Legislative Assembly. Evidently, the electorate's desire for government stability has translated into actual votes this fall. 

On the federal scene, voting intentions in Canada have remained mostly stable since late August, and the past weeks did not alter the current trends.

The NDP remains at its expected average just below the 20 per cent mark.
