Justin Trudeau has called the byelections for three federal seats that are up for grabs throughout Canada.
The seats are located in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia.
The elections will be held on February 25th, 2019.
Voters will be going to the polls for the following three ridings: York-Simcoe in Ontario, Outremont in Quebec and Burnaby South in British Columbia.
York-Simcoe was abandoned by Conservative MP Peter Van Loan, who retired from politics.
Burnaby South has made headlines recently as NDP leader Jagmeet Singh is seeking to get elected as an MP there.
He will be competing against Jay Shin (PC), Karen Wang (Lib), and Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson (PPC). The Green party has announced that it is not planning on running a candidate in that riding.
The seat in Burnaby South was vacated by NDP MP Kennedy Stewart who is now Vancouver’s mayor.
At the same time the Outremont riding was vacated by former NDP leader Thomas Mulcair when he stepped down from politics after the NDP’s embarrassing defeat in the last election.
The elections will be a good indication of how the 2019 federal election might go.
