The team of Banff-Airdrie Conservative MP Blake Richards is sounding the alarm for a potential spring election.

With Liberals holding a comfortable lead in the polls, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is reported to have told his national board of directors to ready the ship for a possible spring election.  That has triggered a reaction from other political parties.

"We hear that just this week the Liberals advised all of their MPs to get their financial house in order "in case" there's a spring election," states a notice. "We need to be ready for any possibility."

Following the 2021 federal election, the Liberals formed a second consecutive minority government. The 36-day campaign and $600-million election saw the Liberals gain one seat at the expense of the NDP.
