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.

Unfortunately, Canadians are disenfranchised after five years abroad.

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.

Was going to vote Conservative, until I saw how weak is Andrew Scheer as a leader. He also leaves me indifferent and doesn't give me one single reason to vote for his party. He also criticize Trudeau and propose nothing. I'll give Trudeau another chance.

My 5000th post since 2005!

There should be a 'not voting' option and/or 'undecided'.

I'm going to rank my ballot, as Justin Trudeau circa 2015 promised I would be able to. (There is precedent in Newfoundland that doing so can show clear preference and be counted as valid in the event of a recount, if that particular ballot became a deciding factor; I will be ranking NDP first this time around.)

Undecided except for no vote for the Liberals.
The current government's PMO is a throwback to the Family Compact/Chateau Clique in my mind. Butts/Telford/Trudeau are without honour or integrity.
https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia....family-compact

The PMO has grown stronger and more autocratic with each successive government since the 1960's and its power needs to be checked for the good of the country and the reputation of our Parliament. Sadly I see no move from any other party to make moves to return power and responsibilities to our Members of Parliament.

The backbenchers have the power if they worked together (across party lines) to wrest control from the PMO. But I'm not holding my breath that this will ever happen.

Probably Liberal.

Sincere question: no poll option for the Bloc, given that the PPC is an option?

I understand they only run candidates in one province, but there's a legitimate chance they'll outperform the Greens and quite possibly (probably?) the NDP in the upcoming election.

I disliked Scheer so much that I joined the Conservative Party during the leadership race; so not them.

Probably Liberal.

Don't be a downer. The question is not what's so terrible, it's what's to like?

Voting for the NDP incumbent in my riding to keep the Conservative candidate out. Would vote Liberal if their candidate had a real chance.
