Laurel Collins’ campaign office looks mostly set up at the SW corner of Yates and Quadra (regular NDP campaign office spot).

Last time I walked by her regular office on Fort street, they were advertising free pride flags for pride summer… didn’t see free Canadian flags for Canada day.

Members of Parliament agree election should not be called amid COVID-19 - The Globe and Mail

 

The House voted on a Bloc Québécois motion Tuesday urging the government not to hold an election so long as Canadians are faced with the pandemic. The motion said more than 1.3 million Canadians have been infected with COVID-19 and nearly 25,000 people have died as a result, and so it would be “irresponsible” to hold an election. It was put forward by Bloc MP Alain Therrien. Three hundred and twenty-seven MPs voted in favour, while Independent MP Derek Sloan voted against.

Although MPs agreed an election would not be held during the pandemic, they did not define exactly when it will be over. Public-health officials have suggested a return to normal could happen in September, and that’s when many political observers speculate the governing Liberals will call an election.

I don’t ever buy into that. if Canadians don’t want an election now they can express that with votes for the other parties.

News 1130:




Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is heading to Rideau Hall on Sunday morning, where he is expected to ask Gov. Gen. Mary Simon to dissolve Parliament and trigger an election campaign.

His official itinerary shows he's expected to arrive at Rideau Hall at 10 a.m. eastern time, accompanied by his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.

An election date has not formally been set, though it is expected that Canadians will head to the polls on Sept. 20

Canadians will head to the polls in a federal election set for Sept. 20

Canadians are headed to the polls after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited with Governor General Mary Simon on Sunday, kickstarting a 36 day campaign that will culminate with a vote on September 20.

Trudeau is opting for one of the shortest election campaigns, less than two years since the Liberals were reduced to a minority government.

At the time of dissolution, the Liberals have 155 seats, the Conservatives 119, the Bloc Quebecois 32, the NDP 24 and the Greens two. There are also four Independents and one vacancy.





and he will likely be rewarded. since part of the problem is that none of the other parties have a decent leader. which is not to say boy wonder is a better leader than any of them. but he’s the devil most of us know.

Trudeau is desperate to free his party of the NDP.

Speaking of which, they’re not releasing their 2020 financial report (the NDP). What gives?

Pointless trivia: Trudeau is older than Nixon was when he lost to the youthful, dynamic JFK.

Nixon joined the Navy to pay for school and help his impoverished family. JFK joined the Navy to put some red meat on his playboy reputation. Both entered public life changed by adversity.

 

In some ways Justin was a combination of the two; JFK's dynastic privilege and Nixon's scrabbling his way to the top through low-paying jobs.

 

But in avoiding Nixon and JFK's crippling personal vices Trudeau has found success through mediocrity.

i think that the "liberal machine" put trudeau in place.  he could not have succeeded - on his own efforts - in other parties with a less refined internal mechanism.

The Liberal Party, without the Trudeau name, wouldn’t have won the election. So it’s a bit of a chicken or the egg scenario.

Look at the resounding support for the Trudeau brand: https://en.m.wikiped...ership_election
