Canada’s Government has offered suggestions that the national election will be held a week later than the proposed time to avoid the conflict with Diwali. October 2025, marked by these elections, is not far away.

The idea of giving the elections a time stamp on October 27th, 2025, instead of the 20th, was a part of the series of reforms set for the Elections Act.

The instruction for the proposed bill was alleged to be to “enhance participation in the electoral process.

Improvements in Voting Procedures:

This part in “the days of the weekend” of polling dates was covered under the paragraph “never to be held on a day of religious or cultural significance.”

The statement was, “Should a fixed date election that is being held in 2025 be held on Monday, October 20 then it will be held on that particular day.” Meanwhile, most communities in Canada will be celebrating Diwali, which underlines the diversity of cultures in this country. 

Thus, the date of the New York City Election is recommended to be once changed to make sure there is no conflict with Diwali. Then comes the news that “the election will now be held on Monday next”.

Not only that but going further the country said it is also planning to start “a journey to the implementation ‘everywhere’ voting in electoral district,” known for increasing the speed and avoiding long lines. 

Further, this statement proposed that “In an attempt to boost the voting efficiency and make the long lines a thing of the past at the polling locations, the Chief Electoral Officer promised to make it possible to vote from any table in their assigned polling location at the vote during the next fixed date general election.” 

Previously, the Chief Electoral Officer would submit her report with the potential proactive measures to pass the “vote at any desk” across Canada as a first step.

Trudeau’s Commitment

In correspondence, it was also stated: “The Principal Electoral Officer would additionally be mandated to present a subsequent dossier to the Legislative Body in 2027 concerning the facilitation of voters casting ballots at any polling venue within their electoral constituency by 2029.

These constitute pivotal measures towards the complete enactment of a universal voting model in the forthcoming era.”

Meanwhile, the Premier of Canada, Justin Trudeau, imparted his sentiments regarding resigning from his “eccentric occupation” daily but affirmed his commitment to retaining his position until the subsequent electoral cycle.

During an exchange with Radio-Canada, Premier Trudeau articulated in the French language, “I could not, at this juncture, reconcile with my conscience to forsake the struggle.”

When prompted regarding his contemplation of stepping down from his vocation, Premier Trudeau remarked, “I entertain thoughts of resignation daily.

The vocation I undertake is unconventional, demanding personal sacrifices. Undoubtedly, it presents formidable challenges, and it is occasionally disheartening. My entry into public service was not driven by a quest for popularity or personal incentives, but rather by a desire to contribute meaningfully, recognizing my capacity to make a difference.”
