Interesting that if that projection were to hold true the Liberals would have more seats from Quebec than in the rest of the country put together.

So then if we convinced Quebec to separate, we might never have a liberal government again, ah perchance to dream.

Is he up against Blaney? Could be a close race.

A new 15-minute video produced by Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre is the latest salvo in the political fight over housing policy, which has dominated the second half of this year in politics.

 

Poilievre made housing costs and affordability a key part of his message early in his leadership run, and housing has now become an issue that parties across the political spectrum agree is a crisis facing Canadians.

 

The Conservative leader's video features statistics, charts and news articles that frame the housing issue as one of the Trudeau government's own making.

 

"Like all countries, we've always had problems throughout Canada's past, though almost anyone who got a job could save up and buy a home in their mid 20s. When did that all change? About eight years ago," Poilievre says in the video.

"We're facing a shortage of housing right now. This is a big reason why prices are just way too high. So we need to build more homes faster," Trudeau said at an announcement in Ajax, Ont., on Thursday...

It's nothing that more than half-a-million new residents in Canada each year won't fix.

...Based on the current level of immigration – if it continues throughout the rest of 2023 – the country could welcome 526,360 new permanent residents by the end of the year, up 20.3 per cent from the 437,610 last year.. An immigration level of 526,360 new permanent residents this year would be 5.7%  more immigrants to Canada than the target of 465,000 under the current immigration levels plan – and almost 5.3% above the much-higher immigration target of 500,000 set for 2025...

...If an election were held today, 42% of committed voters would vote Conservatives with the Liberals at 23%, the NDP at 19% and the Greens at 5%. The BQ is at 32% in Quebec...The 19-point Conservative Party lead over the Liberals is the largest lead we have measured for the Conservatives since the Liberals were elected in 2015...

Good link.  Sophie was not the only one to reject the useless ponce.

 

There is also some interesting data on BC politics.  Bit surprised that the BC cons outpoll the BCU.  Probably will just end up in vote splitting ensuring a win for Too Tall, but it does suggest the political landscape is shifting right.

New/young conservatives primarly want less progressivism rapidly changing society, and more personal responsibility in exchange for less government intrusion and therefore cost.

But what disenfranchises them is the angry element that some people bring to the table, like the people with F Trudeau stickers on their clapped out trucks. Few people want to be associated with that sort of thing, publicly, and privately wish it wasn’t lumped in with their moderate conservative views.

Maybe. But the vast majority of young people want a UBI, with hardly a thought of where that money comes from.

Young conservatives are not very common.

Yep. In Canada, I believe there are far more young liberals or far-left people than young conservatives. People tend to become more conservative as they age, not the other way around.

In general yes. I think that’s always been true of most young folk.

But there’s a rising trend toward social traditionalism by gen Z, perhaps reaction to the 🤡 nonsense that’s gone too far too fast.

There are lots of kids rolling their eyes at the rainbow religion / woke agenda being pushed by their teachers and government.

Youth is wasted on the young. With age comes wisdom (hopefully).
