Abstract: Justin Trudeau’s distinct approach to electoral campaigning, constituent communication, and policymaking have contributed to an unmistakable spike in interest for Canadian politics over the last five years. This roundtable brings together editors of forthcoming books and other participants to discuss patterns of electioneering likely to be deployed by candidates and political parties during the 2019 Canadian federal election. This electoral contest will provide analytical opportunities independent of the outcome. For instance, it will be the first time that Prime Minister Trudeau will seek re-election and the first time Canada has had a visible minority lead a national political party. During the last federal election in 2015, Trudeau was able to sell an image of youth, progressiveness, freshness, as well as a positive approach to politics to an electorate generally tired of former Prime Minister Harper's Conservative government. In 2019, Trudeau is likely to adopt a different approach as the oldest of the three main party leaders, two of whom are running for the first time as leaders of political parties. The 2019 Canadian election will also be the first held since Donald Trump’s election as U.S. President. It should offer opportunities to examine the saliency of themes central to the 2016 U.S. presidential and the 2018 U.S. midterm elections as it relates to Canada, including populism, nationalism, and globalization. In sum, this roundtable will offer participants opportunities to discuss and lay the groundwork for studying the upcoming 2019 federal election from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
