The response is quite spirited.
The age of disruption is spawning all kinds of unlikely political outcomes in previously stable democracies. Could one of them be a breakthrough for the Green Party of Canada in next year’s federal election?
As Canadians, we sit atop the continent, watching as our neighbours slide into cultural civil war. It has become easy to just be appalled as America becomes riven, with social media and antagonistic rhetoric on both sides of the political spectrum erasing the middle ground. There are two Americas, incommensurably separated on the fundamental issues of the day: climate change, the economy, social issues like health and education, employment, the media, immigration in particular, and globalization and free trade.
This plan was made public thanks to a scoop by a small independent outlet called Blacklocks, which appears to be one of the only outlets in Canada that won’t accept funding from Trudeau’s $595 million media slush fund.
Donald Trump is so unpopular in Canada that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is using the spectre of the U.S. president to attack his conservative rival ahead of a national election set for next year.
The Trudeau Liberals more than doubled the amount of invitations to apply for permanent residence that it issued to Express Entry candidates in October 2017.
In the aftermath of the 2016 election and the rapid spread of populism around the globe, one country seemed immune: Canada. Justin Trudeau, the charismatic, dashing, and woke prime minister, sees himself as progressive liberalism’s leading light. But Canada is ripe for a populist revolt, and Trudeau may end up being its perfect catalyst.
Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford is urging Canadian voters to topple Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in next year’s federal election.
Introducing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer at Queen’s Park as “the next prime minister of Canada,” Ford stepped up his attacks on Trudeau over the Liberals’ plan to put a price on carbon to tackle climate change.
Let’s cut to the chase on the looming debate over Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, heading into next year’s federal election.
Trudeau’s summer of disaster may be continuing into the fall.
The federal Opposition leader is suggesting the Liberals have no intention of beginning the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion before next year’s election.
The popular press will do anything rather than admit that Justin and his friends are in trouble:
Twelve months from now, Canadians will pass judgment on the Trudeau government and decide whether its first mandate should be its last or if it deserves another four years.
As the one-year countdown to the next federal election on Oct. 21, 2019 starts ticking, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals appear reasonably well positioned to win a second term.
But a year is a lifetime in politics and the coming one promises to be particularly challenging for the Liberals, beset by a growing phalanx of hostile conservative premiers determined to put a spoke in Trudeau’s pre-election wheel.
In particular, they’re aiming to upend the introduction of a carbon tax — one of Trudeau’s signature policies, the central pillar of the Liberal plan for combating climate change.
It’s the next big thing on the government’s agenda and it’s the pivotal issue upon which Liberal strategists privately believe the next election will turn. It’s a fight they think they can win.
Instead, he said they’ll scrutinize the rollout of legal pot and go from there.
The poll also reveals that Singh and Scheer are still relatively unknown quantities not just to Canadians as a whole, but also to their own parties’ supporters.
With a looming federal election set for the fall of 2019, what do the dwindling number of Grits at the provincial level mean for Trudeau? Is it just a blip on the election radar or are mounting Liberal losses heading toward what some on social media are predicting will be a #LiberalFlush?
