Boy; this election is shaping up to be an interesting race indeed.

Trudeau isn't having a very good time of it and I bet he's been told by more than one senior cabinet minister - "you really screwed the pooch by calling a snap election thinking you might gain a majority."

Love to be a fly on the wall in his strategy meetings.

He might want to have these guys on speed dial: https://request.servicemasterrestore...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

It's already 10 years ago then Jack Layton passed away...

If Layton was elected PM would Canada be very different than it is today?

It certainly would, if only because Canada would have needed to be a very different country to give a plurality of ridings to the NDP. The orange wave filled the gap left by the Bloc but that’s about it.

I became a major NDP supporter with Jack Layton. Joined my university's NDP Club (the same place Tommy Douglas attended college) and was incredibly sad and disappointed when Layton passed away. Oh what could have been...I eventually warmed to Mulcair. I tried to give Jagmeet Singh a chance but with every speech I heard, my dislike of him grew. I finally quit the NDP and joinee Wexit Party which is now called the Maverick Party which has really developed in the last year since Jay Hill, a Reform/Conservative alum, took over the helm last year in June www.maverickparty.ca

Aren’t the NDP and Mavericks on opposite ends of the political spectrum?

Some idiot from the peoples party came to my door the other night while I was eating dinner. No masks or anything. She was collecting sigantures for something. I find it quite sad anyone would actually support this party. Good thing they don't have much support anywhere.

^You'd probably find the largest concentration of support in those anti-vax protests yesterday

Example: Canoe, BC a burb of Salmon Arm got high speed five years ago when I lived there. Where I am now we're still waiting.......while the Rogers YACHT gets longer........it's already a govt. mandate. call your current MP not matter the party, and all parties are basically on board on this. It's on the providers. They should be called BUT these are PROVINCIAL consumer issues, NOT FEDERAL. (iN THE USA they'd be dragged in front of CONGRESS and get their ass kicked>different country, different process.

Cartoonist Ygreck posted this funny Justin cartoon in French where Justin said to a kid you'll pay and so your children and your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
