In a roundtable interview with The Canadian Press, Trudeau says he is happy to rule out the prospect of a snap ballot, meaning Canadians can expect to go to the polls Oct. 21.
The declaration should put an end to behind-the-scenes rumblings the governing Liberals have been mulling a spring election.
Since May 2007, federal election legislation dictates that a general ballot be held on the third Monday in October in the fourth year following the previous election.
However, it doesn’t preclude an election being set for a different date.
General elections are called when the Governor General dissolves Parliament on the advice of the prime minister.
