Canadians head to the polls today following a feisty election campaign decried by embattled prime minister Justin Trudeau as one of the “nastiest” in Canadian history.

While campaigning in Richmond Hill, Ontario, over the weekend , Mr Trudeau’s main rival, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, vowed to get to the bottom of the SNC-Lavalin affair, an ethics scandal that has gripped Mr Trudeau’s administration.

In response, his supporters chanted: “Lock him up, lock him up,” regularly used by followers of Donald Trump in reference to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election .

Clearly embarrassed, Mr Scheer tried to start an alternative chant: “Vote him out, vote him out.”
