The Trudeau Liberals have moved to a "state of electoral urgency," which will allow the party to shorten the amount of time it takes to process local candidates for a federal election.
While the Liberals are repeatedly said that they are not looking for an election, the party is looking to fill out its nominees in ridings that do not have candidates as of yet.
According to CBC, the change will allow the party to "alter the timelines and procedures in a manner as they, in their sole and unfettered discretion, may see fit."
The Conservative Party is prepared to launch a similar state if an election is called.
Most observers are expecting a snap election sometime in 2021, suggesting that it is unlikely that the Liberal minority will survive in its current form until the next scheduled election in 2023.
