With election looming, Ipsos Reid CEO explains what latest polls are showing

Brian Lilley sat down with pollster Darrell Bricker, CEO of Global Public Affairs for Ipsos Reid, to get a rundown on current polling data.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Angry Tom, Juvenile Justin, or Sober Steve? Hmm……

    I hope Canadians wake up and rally behind Harper, the best PM Canada has had in over 50 years.

    • I do as well.

    • The Butterfly

      Best? I prefer the term “least awful”.

    • Exile1981

      We need laws that ban dual citizens from holding office as it means they have divided loyalties.

  • Waffle

    Ah change, for the sake of change? Because the beautifully attired Olivia Chow tells you that she is bored with 10 years of Stephen Harper? Olivia is bored without the perks and privileges that go with having a seat as an elected representative. Because the cheerleaders in the MSM need the excitement of a horse race that usually comes with an election (kind of like the ER nurses who only come alive when the ambulance screeches to a halt at the door and the paramedics run in with the half-conscious stretcher-bound patient)? Change because shooting oneself in the foot is more exciting than being able to walk like a fully-functioning being?

    Think, Canada!! Be careful what you do on election day. Does the media really have your best interests at heart?

    I am somewhat encouraged by the fact that many of our new Canadians are emigres from communist dictatorships who appreciate there freedoms and economic opportunities offered by Canada. Not everyone is fooled or persuaded by the lies and spin of those who aspire to power and their enablers.

    Perhaps there should be term limits in Canada (just to shake things up a bit and as an antidote to boredom) but without such a mechanism, change for the sake of change can be deadly.

    • Mulcair would be a step backwards and Justin is just too silly to contemplate.

      • jayme

        I know many people who say a Ndp party would bring Canada in to the 21st century.

        • Petey

          If places like multi-culti hellhole Sweden are representative of the 21st Century, than I think I’d rather stay in the 20th century.

          • jayme

            People seem to think with the Ndp houses prices would go down don’t know why chances are we would have more immigrants which would increase cost and the Ndp likely would hire many many more public sector workers.

          • Chris

            The housing bubble crash would be more than compensated by the increased costs and red tape imposed on developers by and NDP government.

        • Surele Surele

          No, thank you. We’re already in. And doing quite well, comparing to other ’21st Century’ countries.

    • Brett_McS

      Once of the worst PMs in Australia (Gough Whitlam) used “It’s Time” as his campaign slogan.

  • ontario john

    I don’t know why we are having an election. The media has already decided that Mulcair will be the next prime minister. Welcome to the Socialist Islamic Republic of Canada.

    • Surele Surele

      Let’s wait for the fat lady to sing. Media can go to hell.

  • jayme

    A single party in power for a long time is generally not a good thing. Regardless of the particular politicians involved, they tend to inevitably become complacent and, in some cases at least, corrupt. They and the country benefit from them being reminded from time to time that their privileged positions are dependent on the good will of the populace. The trouble in this case is that the Conservatives are probably still the least offensive of the alternatives available … maybe we need more alternatives.

      Heard a radio (public union) ad this morning, bemoaning that Harper is depleting public service…. obviously, they do not read stats. Or, more accurately, ignoring the truth, as always.

  • mauser 98

    polls are mostly wrong
    will be great to see Toronto elites melt down with a Shiny Pony wipeout.

    • Alex

      Justin’s the prettiest.
