I'm pessimistic about the libs chances. I think the only voters motivated to show up for this farce of an election are they ones who want to be rid of Trudeau.

I was thinking there'd be low turnout, but not so sure?

I also don't mind minority governments so... we'll see?

I'm guessing that we will end up in the same place that they left it.

Either that or a BQ majority. Vive le something something.

My guess being in inner suburb Toronto is conservative minority. This is basically where the election is won and lost every time and that's what it looks like. Not because of overwhelming support via signage....but apathy. And the cons show up to vote no matter how much they don't love their guy.

This election campaign has only got one genuinely interesting story, and it's the PPC's rising polling numbers. Last time they were disorganized and they had no clear message that resonated with anyone. This time they have a wedge issue - vaccine and mask mandates - and it's given them life. And their street game is much better than last time. From week 1 of the campaign, signs with the local candidate's name were up everywhere in my (safe Liberal) riding.

It will be interesting to see if they do as well as the polling suggests. If they hand Trudeau a victory and even a stronger mandate by diluting the Tory vote in some key ridings, this will ensure the demise of O'Toole as CPC leader and his replacement with someone more willing to court PPC voters. That will have important implications down the road when a Conservative eventually does get elected.

It's just the reform/alliance/PC history repeating itself.

I'm very surprised I'm not more of a PPC voter.

There are at least 2 or 3 of their positions I like. I guess the other 20 or so stances they have that revolt me must hurt how much I'm likely to vote for them.
