Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls

  Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls Gains by the Bloc in Quebec are erasing the Liberals' enduring seat advantage over the Conservatives. But in the rural regions of Quebec and the francophone areas in and around Montreal, the Liberals had been banking on winning seats with relatively low shares of the vote, benefiting from a vote split between the Conservatives, Bloc and New Democrats.That logic no longer holds now that the Bloc has moved into first place among francophones and (as a consequence) in the regions that were being targeted by the Liberals. That has the potential to paint dozens of seats Bloc blue rather than Liberal red.

We are Canada’s New Democrats. Investing in a Canada where people can realize their full potential and pursue their dreams. Thank you for signing up and standing with the NDP for a better Canada.

As you prepare for your Thanksgiving dinner, if you have some time off from basting your turkey and taste-testing the mashed potatoes and arranging your decorative gourds, why not prepare some political talking points?

That’s what the Liberals and the NDP are hoping you’ll do. Both parties have released suggestions for what to say when dinner conversation inevitably turns to the election.

The sustained time with extended family, combined with the vast quantities of alcohol that are often part of holiday dinner, means it’s not unusual for conversation to drift into politics. And given that we’re just over a week away from a federal election, a lot of people will have a lot of opinions.

Here’s what election strategists are saying in the week before Election Day

  Here’s what election strategists are saying in the week before Election Day Strategists on the West Block had some advice for federal party leaders poised to set out on their last week on the campaign trail.The most recent Ipsos poll conducted for Global News showed the Liberals and Conservatives virtually tied, with support for the Liberals at 35 per cent and for the Tories at 34 per cent.

Liberals are going to town over comments a star Toronto NDP candidate made about " inevitable " budget cuts and accusing the party of planning slashes to health care and child care funding. NDP candidate Andrew Thomson appeared on CBC's Power & Politics Tuesday and told host Rosemary

The Liberals opted for a page on their website, titled “Turkey Talk 2019,” where a cute little turkey provides occasionally sassy suggested answers to anti-Liberal rhetoric.

If a relative references “Seinfeld” to say that the election is “about nothing,” for instance, you can... tell them they’re old and then suggest talking about it while watching “Big Little Lies,” a show that ended in July.

There are also more serious answers to questions about NAFTA, minority governments, and climate tax, and several digs at the Conservative Party and at its leader Andrew Scheer, as well as references to turducken and puns like “fowl play.”

The NDP, meanwhile, released a video on Facebook titled “How to talk to your family about voting NDP: Thanksgiving Edition.”

Trudeau says security threat ‘will not change’ how he conducts campaign

  Trudeau says security threat ‘will not change’ how he conducts campaign When asked by reporters about the vest he wore at Sunday's event, Trudeau said his first concern was the safety of his family and the other Canadians in the room.

Ang Partido Liberal (Ang Liberal Party ) ay itinuturing na institusyon sa buhay sosyopulitikal ng Pilipinas. Ang kasaysayan ng partidong ito ay puno ng sakripisyo; ang mga kasapi at pinuno nito ay kilalang nag-alay ng kanilang buhay manaig lang ang kalayaan sa bansa.

The NDP 's Thomas Mulcair doesn't much like the idea of a coalition or accord with the Liberals either, but he was smart enough to get on the right side The advantage for the moment is distinctly Mulcair's, as he gradually rolls out policies which distinguish the NDP from the Liberals and the Harperites.

The video takes a more earnest approach than the Liberal suggestions, opting for messages about voting with your conscience. There’s also a rebuttal to a millennial-aimed message about avocado toast, a favourite retort of uncles everywhere.

The Conservatives have not yet released a Thanksgiving statement. The Greens didn’t send out any dinner talking points, but did release a straightforward Thanksgiving message. In a statement, leader Elizabeth May said she wishes Canadians a happy holiday, adding that “the fall harvest reminds us of the earth’s bounty and of the hard working farmers and field workers who deliver this abundance to our tables.”
