Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that his government had "no interest" in seeing an election this fall on Wednesday, as speculation continued to swirl on whether or not Trudeau would hold an election during a pandemic.

"The government has no interest in seeing an election this fall. We know that there's still an awful lot of hardship that Canadians are going through, and there are real concerns of a second wave," said Trudeau. "We have no interest in an election."

Trudeau said that his government was interested in putting forward a "strong and ambitious plan" of helping Canada "build back better."

Trudeau continued: "It is the responsible thing to do in a democracy, particularly in minority government situation, to put that plan forward to ensure that it has the confidence of the House as we move forward. So it will be up to opposition parties to decide whether or not they have confidence in the plan that this government is going to put forward to help Canadians build a better future."

Conservatives 'ready' for election

On September 2, the newly-crowned Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole told media were that the CPC would be ready for a hypothetical fall election.

"We are ready [for an election]," said O'Toole. "If they want to rattle their sabres, they will find our sabres our sharpened."
