  Coronavirus: As Canadians huddled at home, feds found meagre support for green recovery plan Internal polling obtained by Global News was likely used to guide the Trudeau government through a politically turbulent summer's end.But the polling also told the Trudeau government two other things: there appeared to be little appetite for an economic recovery plan that placed a high priority on quickly transforming to a carbon-neutral economy; and voters appeared to have little concern about mounting deficits and debt.

The results suggest 47 per cent of respondents want the next election to be held in the fall of 2023 — four years after the last election — and 10 per cent would like one to be held in 2022.

Twenty-five per cent of respondents say they want Canadians to head to the polls next spring and 18 per cent next fall.

Kim Kardashian Cries While Detailing Robbery, More Letterman Revelations

  Kim Kardashian Cries While Detailing Robbery, More Letterman Revelations Baring it all. Kim Kardashian broke down in tears while recalling her 2016 Paris robbery on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman — and revealed a few more startling revelations. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 39, sat down with host David Letterman on the Netflix series, which is set to debut on Wednesday, October 21. The KKW Beauty founder explained she “packed all my jewelry” for Paris fashion week in October 2016, which she had “never done before.” One week earlier, Kardashian said her husband, Kanye West, had given her a new ring that she showed off on social media. The E! personality recounted having lunch with her friends hours before the robbery, where they all discussed what they would do in that situation. “We had lunch that day and said, ‘If you guys were robbed, what would you do? Would you just give them the stuff?'” Kardashian said. “Why we had this conversation, it was so wild. I said, ‘I would say take everything, just take everything, nothing is important.'” Later that evening, West, 43 — who had briefly joined Kardashian in Paris — left to resume his tour. Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian and a friend went out to a club. Kim explained that she told the Poosh founder, 41, to bring their one security guard since she would be staying in the hotel room. At around 3 a.m., the reality star heard “stomping up the stairs” and thought it was her sister and friend coming home from the club.

The online poll of 1,523 adult Canadians was carried from Oct. 23 to 25 and cannot be assigned a margin of error because internet-based polls are not considered random.

The poll suggests the Liberal party is still leading among decided voters. Thirty-seven per cent say they would vote for the Liberals, versus 30 per cent for the Conservatives and 18 per cent for the NDP. The Bloc followed with eight per cent and the Greens at five.

What lessons does John Horgan's big B.C. election victory hold for Justin Trudeau?

  What lessons does John Horgan's big B.C. election victory hold for Justin Trudeau? OTTAWA — B.C. Premier John Horgan took a risk by calling an election in the middle of a pandemic, but it paid off handsomely on Saturday as the B.C. NDP secured a majority government and won the most seats in their party’s history. The election also marks the second time this fall that a provincial government has expanded a minority government into a majority, after New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs and his Progressive Conservatives won 27 of 49 ridings. In Saskatchewan, meanwhile, polls show Scott Moe’s government is on track to hold on to their majority government in Monday’s election.

When it comes to what is not going well, 63 per cent of respondents said Ottawa has been slow to increase public health measures as the number of COVID-19 cases grew. Thirty-nine per cent said Ottawa politicians are too focused on politics on Parliament Hill.

The poll suggests different levels of satisfaction when it come to how each provincial government is handling the second wave.

Thirty-one per cent of those living in Atlantic provinces, where travel restrictions have help keep case numbers low, say their provincial government is doing a better job this time around.

But 39 per cent of those in Alberta and 29 per cent of those in Manitoba or Saskatchewan say their provincial governments are doing a worse job than they did in the spring.

"They tend to hold, in part, their provincial government responsible for the slowdown in the economy," Bourque said.

Election Night 2020: Why COVID, Mail-in Voting… or Trump Might Delay the Results .
The end is in sight for the 2020 election cycle, but don't get too eager: Election Day 2020 may end before the question of whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump will occupy the White House for the next four years is settled. It's important to note that not once in the history of the United States has an election winner been declared officially on election day; it can take days or weeks to count all votes, and most states allow around a month for officials to certify the results.
