Justin Trudeau's Liberals swept all 25 of Toronto's ridings en route to a majority win in 2015, and the party will need to do well in the city again on Monday in order to have a chance at remaining in government.

To achieve that, it needs to defend most — ideally all — of the suburban Toronto seats it won from Stephen Harper's Conservatives, while simultaneously fending off a New Democrat resurgence downtown.

The website 338Canada, which projects riding-by-riding results based on available polls, has the Liberals as strong favourites in all but eight Toronto ridings, where party hopes rest on seven one-term incumbents and one newcomer.
