Not sure yet. If anyone has a chance to beat the Conservatives in my riding (not likely in Chatham-Kent-Leamington), then I will vote for that party.

I'll be voting Liberal. The other parties have not done anything to inspire me, and for all the definite issues with Trudeau's government so far, there are many aspects of it that I approve of. I am completely unimpressed with Scheer and Singh as leaders.

This .... and Chrystia Freeland is my local MP - she should win handily. I don't even think the NDP have a candidate in the riding yet.

I’ll probably vote for whichever of the Conservative or People’s Party candidates is less sketchy. I voted for Freeland last time. But I think I’ll wait for the campaign to take place before deciding.

Their candidate seems reasonable

Unfortunately, Canadians are disenfranchised after five years abroad.

This is no longer the case:

Is it true that electors can only be on the International Register of Electors if they have been away from Canada for less than five years?

No.

On January 11, 2019, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that a Canadian elector living abroad who has previously resided in Canada is entitled to vote by special ballot in federal elections, regardless of how long they have been living abroad.

FYI – I emailed Elections Canada because I have moved since the last election, and I wasn't sure if I needed to update my previous record on the International Register of Electors, or complete a new application.

They replied that we are automatically removed from the International Register of Electors after five years abroad. Hence we should re-apply here.

I find it peculiar that you could spend 50 years overseas basically living your life in some other country with no intention of returning, and still be entitled to have a say in this country's affairs.

Are other countries that generous in this regard?

Allowing ex-pats to vote is not uncommon internationally.

For many countries it goes beyond just expats too. I could vote in Italian elections and I've never even lived in the country!

That's not true! There is still time to register as an overseas citizen, I believe.
Supreme Court ruled against Mulroney's 1993 law, and Trudeau already enacted legislation changing it anyway:

Also - I am not sure who to vote for as an ABC voter for Sarnia. Used to be the bell-weather riding. I think having a Sun-media owned local newspaper doesn't help.

All i know so far is that it won't be the Liberals or Conservatives. I'm not crazy about the Conservative's approach to climate change and I'm still not fully recovered from the Harper years, and with the Liberals they lost any chance with me with their betrayal on electoral reform. I was done. Checked out. Moved on.

Edmonton Strathcona is a riding in Alberta that has a chance of not going to the conservatives s so I’ll be voting for whoever has the best chance against the Conservative candidate. Linda Duncan held the seat for the NDP for quite some time, so this will be one of the few Alberta ridings to watch

The Liberals are good enough and they're the only viable alternative to the Conservatives.
