  John Robson: Everyone's running against the Tories. Even the Tories As Canada’s worst election ever staggers toward the finish line, a theme has finally emerged. Despite the best efforts of the party leaders to say nothing coherent or true at any point, we know what it’s about. Everyone is running against the Tories. Including the Tories. Makes you wonder what they’re so afraid of. Jagmeet Singh let the cat out of the bag about the theme when he confessed that yes, should his party unaccountably fail to win a majority of seats for the 18th straight time since its 1961 founding, he would consider a coalition with … Oh come off it. We all know the answer.

Article excerpt. Trudeau says Tories divide aboriginals. " One of the things that this current Conservative government has done very well, because of its lack of movement on those issues, has been encouraging a splintering and a division within First Nations communities," Trudeau said.

With the province’s economy still sluggish the climate crisis seems to be a secondary issue for voters in Canada’s federal election.

MONTREAL — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says the Conservatives are running one of the dirtiest, nastiest campaigns based on disinformation that Canada has ever seen.

Trudeau went on to say that Canadians are saddened to see some parties running polarizing and negative campaigns using tactics imported from other countries.

Over the weekend, a security threat forced Trudeau to wear a bulletproof vest at an event, and the next day he lamented the divisive nature of the campaign.

  Trudeau concedes Tories could win, accuses them of running 'dirtiest' campaign ever Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau today conceded the Conservatives could win Monday's election — and accused the party of winning support by running one of the "dirtiest, nastiest" election campaigns in Canadian history. Surrounded by 29 Quebec candidates at an event at Montreal's Botanical Garden Wednesday, Trudeau appealed to Quebecers to support his party and elect a progressive government rather than a "progressive opposition.

He said the Conservatives are adopting the politics of fear and negativity, though he did not blame them for the security threat.

The Tories have said the Liberals want to legalize all drugs, when Trudeau has said repeatedly his party has no plans to do so, and that the Liberals would impose a tax on home sales, which the Liberals have denied.

Trudeau is campaigning in Quebec today, making a specific appeal to potential Bloc Quebecois voters, saying the Liberals stand up for the values people in that province hold.


Diane Francis: Separatist movements appear to spell doom for this parliament, but there are ways Trudeau can make it work .
The election chastened the Liberal party and has left it flanked by two “separatist” movements, one in Quebec and another in Alberta-Saskatchewan. At first glance, the outcome looks doomed but the fact is that it provides Justin Trudeau with a navigable minority governance situation in a country with two defined regions whose needs must be met. If they are not, Canada will face another election and two unity crises. Make no mistake, the unanimity of culture and purpose in Alberta and Saskatchewan is just as powerful as in Quebec. Here is the roadmap that the prime minister can follow to govern for a while: he must variously adhere to the wishes of the Tories and Bloc.
