You're probably right, because I looked at the TV schedules for Election Day, and CBC, CTV, and Global are actually broadcasting US election coverage on their broadcast networks.

 

  • CBC: The CBC TV network will be obliterating their primetime schedule on all stations on Tuesday Nov 3. starting at 8 PM ET/5PM PT. Their coverage will go through the night all the way to 6 AM local time on each CBC station, to make way for the local morning simulcast with CBC Radio One, and children's programming at 7 AM.
     
  • CTV: The main CTV network will also be pre-empting a majority of its primetime schedule. Their news special is scheduled to start at 8 PM ET/5PM PT, except on CTV Edmonton and Calgary where the news special will start at 7 PM MT after the local 6 PM news. Their broadcast is also scheduled to end at 11 PM ET/8PM PT, where the eastern CTV stations are scheduled to air the CTV National News and CTV Local News afterwards. The western CTV stations (BC/AB/SK/MB) are scheduled to air random Big Bang Theory/Goldbergs/Jann repeats until CTV News starts at 11 PM local time. I would guess that if the situation warrants, all those programs will be pre-empted by the news special.
     
  • Global: The Global TV network will not be airing a news special during primetime; they are scheduled to air "Solo: A Star Wars Story" at 8PM local/7PM CT, followed by local news at 11 PM/10PM CT.  However, Global News is airing a news special immediately after the late local news, and is currently scheduled to go until 2:35 AM ET/12:35 AM MT across most the network (it may go past that if the situation warrants).
    • Global News at 11 is being extended to 1 hour on Global's eastern stations just for this evening, as Late Night with Stephen Colbert will not run at its usual 11:35 PM timeslot. So the news special will air at 12 AM AT on Global Halifax/NB, and 12 AM ET on Global Toronto/Ontario/Montreal. All other stations in AB, SK, and MB will air the special at 12 AM MT (Alberta), 11 PM CT (Sask/MB).
    • Global BC /Okanagan is not scheduled to air the special according to the TV guides, but if the election is still developing, Global BC might join the show in progress. 

CityTV and the independents (CHCH, CHEK, etc.) will probably have regular programming (on CHCH, it’s the movie The Ides of March), though I’m sure they’ll have updates throughout the night followed by their local news, which may be extended to an hour for additional election coverage.

Sad news this time from across the pond again. Television Presenter Caroline Flack, 40, was found dead of an apparent suicide yesterday. She was the host of Britain's most popular show of the moment,

The news on TVA in Francophone Canada has a new look:      

So if you haven't noticed, it's been 60 years since RTP's flagship newscast "Telejornal" and to honor it, they have a new intro and a modified theme song of their newscast as well.

Citytv doesn't do news updated during primetime. I also doubt that Citytv will do any extended coverage after their 11 PM (they already do 1 hour of news at 11 PM 7 days a week, they end up repeating the same news stories throughout the hour). CHEK and CHCH will most likely feature the election during their late night news, but with their limited resources it's unlikely they'll do anything special .

V network in Francophone Canada was rebranded as Noovo in August 2020, however currently the network retained the outsourced anchor-less newscasts, NVL, as of 2021:
