As Canada's political leaders make their last bid for votes ahead of Monday's election, the campaigns are focusing on immigrant communities - and areas that have swung politically in the last election. Brampton, a suburb of Toronto, is both.

'Trudeaumania' heir could become Canada's next Prime Minister ~ link

The son of a man who brought glamor and excitement to Canadian politics in the late 1960s is favored to become Canada's next prime minister. Justin Trudeau, the son of late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, is leading in the polls ahead of Monday's election that could spell the end of a decade of Conservative rule under Stephen Harper. 

Trudeau, tall and trim at 43, channels the star power - if not quite the political heft - of his father, who swept to power in 1968 on a wave of support dubbed "Trudeaumania."

Harper vs. Trudeaumania: What the foreign press is saying about the Canadian election ~ link

Canadian conservatives who seethe over the father’s legacy and abhor the prospect of a Justin Trudeau prime ministership might be advised to bypass some of this foreign coverage in the interest of blood-pressure management.

But Canadian Liberals will feel warm waves of nostalgia from foreign media recollections about one of the country’s best-known political figures on the eve of the election — also the anniversary of his birthday 96 years ago.

Harper's Worst Nightmare ~ link

It ain’t over till it’s over. But if the consensus of polls can be believed, the wailing and gnashing of teeth among Conservatives and New Democrats, which has been developing privately in recent days, will soon become public. Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, meanwhile, look poised for victory —­ a stunning comeback for a party and a leader who just a few months ago had been all but written off. It is, in so many different ways, Stephen Harper’s worst nightmare.

How did it come to this, will be the question many Tories ask themselves. In truth, it’s no great mystery. The inflection points, as we look back at the 78-day span of this monster campaign, are not hard to spot. Neither are the pivotal trends and surprises, of which there were three. In every case, the Conservatives contributed to their own demise. To say they shot themselves in the foot is putting it mildly.

Justin Trudeau makes a final election push in Alberta, B.C. ~ link

With the Liberals poised to bounce back from their weak performance in the 2011 election, Justin Trudeau sought here Sunday to stake a claim for a national mandate from voters.

“It’s time to come together as a country. I have been coming out to Alberta for years with a message that this place is important to me, that this place matters, deeply,” he told 1,500 party stalwarts at a rally in Edmonton.“And it’s a message that I’m proud to deliver here, with a big smile, as a Liberal, as a Trudeau and as a Quebecer.

Canadian leaders make a final push before election ~ link

After listening to politicians’ non-stop talking for 11 weeks, Canadians finally get to have their say at the ballot box on Monday.

The three party leaders used their last full day of campaigning Sunday to urge their supporters to bring out the voters — a task made more difficult by competition with a Toronto Blue Jays playoff game.

Job Number One for Canada's PM: Pick an office ~ link

Should a new prime minister emerge on Monday night, he’ll soon be entering a world of government perks: An address at 24 Sussex, use of the title “Right Honourable” for life, an armoured Cadillac and use of a CC-150 Polaris decked out in fancy “Government of Canada” livery.

But one totem of prime ministerial power isn’t set in stone: Who gets to sit in Stephen Harper’s iconic Parliament Hill office. Canada isn’t like the United States: There’s no fancy Oval Office reserved for the exclusive use of the federal leader. When Parliament opens, the Prime Minister could technically pick whichever office he likes.
