Elections matter — and this one may matter more than most


Yes, the timing is entirely political. But Canadians still have some important choices to make. Heading to Rideau Hall on Sunday morning, Justin Trudeau had to know he was going to be called upon by reporters to explain his reasons for triggering an election in a pandemic. His response was to invert the question. “In this pivotal, consequential moment, who wouldn’t want a say? Who wouldn’t want their chance to help decide where our country goes from here?” he asked after finishing his official business with the Governor General. “After making it through 17 months of nothing like we’ve ever experienced, Canadians deserve to choose what the next 17 months, the next 17 years and beyond, look like.”
