The Economist asks:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to seek another term, but if and when new elections will be called remains up in the air (Economist, CBC). For early elections to be called, the Governor General, usually at the request of the prime minister, must dissolve parliament and issue election writs (Elections Canada, Edmonton Journal, Canadian Gazette - Proclamation Dissolving Parliament, Canadian Gazette - Proclamation Issuing Election Writs). The date an early election is to be held is immaterial, and the calling of a by-election would not count (Elections Canada).
