He blew a big lead like Scheer did. The Conservatives need a closer who can actually pitch.

Wow........the Nanos poll released today is even worse for the Conservatives.

The Liberals jumped 3% and now lead the Conservatives in popular vote.

The Liberals are now back to where they were when the election was called.

Liberals 34.4% to Conservatives 30.1%

I think the senior vote was keen on O"Toole but he was dismissive on questions posed to him about what he was doing for seniors.

Trudeau's proposals aren't much but O'Toole telling low income seniors they wouldn't have to pay GST for a month was lame and insulting.

This is the fun time....in the home stretch and it is anyone's ball game. Todays polls could be meaningless. Remember when Trudeau trounced Harper-and the trajectory of the polling leading up to the Harper defeat?. Or last election when Scheer's dream team of political advisers assured him one week from voting day that he would end up 20 seats ahead of Trudeau? This could easily happen to Erin or to Justin.

Not to mention a minor polling detail called margin of error. Or the impact of regional diversity and traditional party strength on those polling numbers. A margin of one vote is all that is required to carry a riding-does not need to a 15000 vote lead. Or the polling bias of land line vs cell phone polls.

Which team will strike out and have the leader or a lead team member say or doing something incredibly stupid?

It can happen to either party. Remember Chris Alexander/Kelly Leitch Barbaric Practices Hotline disaster. It moved the Harper team from a minority Government to Official Opposition in about four days flat (and ended both of their political careers)??? They did not even need Kelly Keitch's ridiculous proposed 'values test' for citizenship to sink the ship.

The wild cards....NDP, Bloc, and to a much lesser extent PPC.

This is pro ball. It is when the political advisors and the respective national election HQ teams truly earn their crust.

Certainly more interesting that the election 2021 debate IMHO!

Whoever wins we will all win. A good percentage of the world's population envy what we have. Free and open elections, healthy economy ,good social systems, and a democratic Government.

No, whoever "wins", we all lose.

Both the major parties have bad plans for the future, and the third party is even worse.

have you read their platforms?
Do you see what they're proposing?
Have you watched what they've been doing?

The current Trudeau government is implementing systematic racial and gender discrimination, in government, and encouraging it in the private sector.
And he'll get re-elected.
How you can see this as anything but an abject failure is beyond me.

All of the political parties, and without any doubt the two parties in contention propose......moving Canada forward economically, addressing social needs, building strong infrastructure, expanding and funding healthcare, funding research and development, creating manufacturing in Canada for essential items, maintaining a pathway for immigration, support for the military........and more.

They have the essentially the same goals but different approaches to how to accomplish them.

Regardless of who forms the government, Canada will continue to thrive.

It will also continue to become a more expensive place to live and harder to get by. With every future generation being squandered more and more.

They're moving Canada backwards. They're actively working against their primary purpose of fairness, equality and security.
They do have the same goals, they want to be the central power running everything, and they care little for the people they "serve".

The latest polls show the Liberals with a fractional lead in popularity, (31.9 to 31.7%) but well ahead in the projected seat count.....154 Libs to 120 Cons.

The Liberals appear to be trouncing the NDP and Bloc in Quebec. It looks like a repeat of 2019, except the Cons may not win the popular vote this time and the Liberals may gain a few seats back in Quebec.

I will not bother voting, my riding has been dark red for years. I'd give Erin a chance if he wasn't such an wannabe liberal hypocrite. And it's written in the stars, he would cut public jobs just like Harper did.
