Canadian politicos of all stripes have been in love with high-tech campaign gadgetry for a couple of decades now — big data, sophisticated vote tracking and social-media metrics.

But Campaign 2019, due to roll out across Canada in a few weeks, has a decidedly, maybe even surprisingly, low-tech feel.

Sure, the parties still love all those gadgets they've amassed over the past four or five federal elections, but as another vote looms, the backroom wizards also seem very attached to good old-fashioned, door-by-door canvassing — maybe more than ever.
