    On 21 October, Canada held its 43rd general election, with the voting taking place in 338 districts. The leading competitors were the ruling Liberal Party led by Justin Trudeau and Andrew Sheer's Conservative Party.

    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 at around 23:00 GMT. 

    A recent poll by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation predicts the election will result in a minority government, with support for the two largest parties, the Conservatives and Liberals, below 33 percent.
