How low was Wynne's poll? Somewhere in the 10s rights? Or did she went below that?
Doug Ford went below her last numbers.
I was working magazines in a grocery store in 2015/2016 and Maclean's was doing some atrocious caping for Trump. I have a vivid recollection of them talking about him having his finger on the pulse while quoting some "real American" about how the country was no longer for the Christian white man. It was gross directly on its face.
Yikes, Gerson wrote that? I only know her from OPPO and she comes across as a fairly reasonable as far as conservatives go.I feel like the vast majority of publications in Canada has some sort of conservative connection. No one has forgotten abut the "resistance.", between that and Jen Gerson's "Relax Doug Ford will be fine" opinion pieces in Canada is pure trash. Don't get me started on the Sun.
That's her, she tries to hide her partisanship but it rears its head now and then.
Man, that blows.That's her, she tries to hide her partisanship but it rears its head now and then.
I remember an OPPO episode when they were supposed to list all the crappy things for the federal leaders, she and no problem going through Singh and Trudeau, but Scheer? Let's just skip over him.
I've stopped subbing to OPPO because she's absolutely insufferable.
I mean this is her best take on PNP vis-a-vis Ford-Scheer.
Ontario is more than just a few suburbs around Toronto.
"No more hallway medicine"Fuckers.
The Financial Accountability Office of Ontario (FAO) Economic and Budget Outlook review has identified planned government spending savings that come viasocialistproject.ca
If they managed to win a super majority(around 220 seats) which I don't think is impossible at this point the meltdowns would be worse than them winning a majority. It would be fun to watch the meltdowns if they form another majority.
I don’t think they would, because while in this hypothetical scenario they’d have the most seats under PR, they’d still be nowhere near a majority and with no prospective coalition partners.
Seriously if polls start converging to a double digit lead in ontario and quebec for the liberals I don't think they win a minority. The Liberals are also within the margin of error in BC to in a lot of polls now.
Bingo! Exactly what I was thinking.
Yah, and I'm still surprised Atlantic Canada is still polling Liberal considering the provincial governments have gone the other way. Still, there's so much time for the pendulum to swing the other way.
Need another reason to love Freeland?Another unforeseen complication during the trade negotiations was Trump's open disdain for Freeland. "We're very unhappy with the negotiations and the negotiating style of Canada," Trump said publicly on Sept. 26, 2018. "We don't like their representative very much."
Wherry reports Trump went much further in private. After the tariffs were imposed, Trudeau and Trump spoke on the phone; Wherry reports Trump called Freeland a "nasty woman" and accused her of talking about him to other world leaders.
Great article on how Trudeau and the LPC have handled Trump (which I think they did very well).
If I had any inkling of voting for Scheer it died when he suggested we should roll over for Trump.
Need another reason to love Freeland?
Time to start calling all of them anti-Canadian. They're the enemy of Canada.
In the early 90s Conrad Black owned about half the newspapers in the country and created the National Post as an unabashedly conservative paper to push a conservative and Albertan worldview to Toronto/Ontario so uh yeah you're absolutely right.I feel like the vast majority of publications in Canada has some sort of conservative connection. No one has forgotten abut the "resistance.", between that and Jen Gerson's "Relax Doug Ford will be fine" opinion pieces in Canada is pure trash. Don't get me started on the Sun.
The Globe and Mail is the other centre right establishment paper (remember their "The Tories Deserve another Mandate" endorsement in 2015?)Conrad Black said:My associates and I concluded that practically all of western Canada, and the sizeable conservative (whether traditionalist or libertarian) minority in eastern Canada, were practically unrepresented in the national media. Coincidentally, our company, although it owned most of the daily newspapers in Canada, was not represented in its largest city, Toronto.

So the so-called "seperation movement" is rooted in Ontario(Toronto/Ottawa) not sharing the conservative views of Alberta?
HA! The funny thing in that whole chart is it basically shows that the Toronto Star Corporation is the least biased media outlet in Canada, with its outlets supporting all parties at one point or another depending on what made sense at the time.
It's god damn surreal that diplomacy between 2 economic allies has come to that... Interesting article
Trump was pleased with the optics of the G7 last year, an adviser said. Trump says he dominated Trudeau there, the adviser added, and loves the viral photo of himself sitting with his arms crossed as world leaders hover over him. Trump also relished leaving the summit early — snub to Trudeau, who Trump said had treated him with disrespect.

The guy is a fucking child.
Trump has sent highly unusual, Sharpie-written notes to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at least twice, sources confirmed to Axios.www.axios.com
Yeah It'd be mind blowing for La Presse to not have a Liberal bias considering the deep ties between Chretien era Liberals and Power Corp.That chart isn't accurate Québec wise. I suppose the people behind it didn't understand French enough as most of the QC stuff is blank. La Presse was notoriously Liberals under André Pratte op eds until he left to become a liberal senator haha. It's still definitely Liberals for the opinion pieces. Le Devoir has supported Le Bloc a lot in the past. JdeM opinion writers definitely slant CPC and Bloc.
Destroying the Ring sounds appealing, but it’s naïve and simplistic. Much of Mordor’s infrastructure was built with the Ring. The building of the Dark Tower of Barad-Dûr and the Black Gate of Udûn employed thousands of trolls, goblins, and Haradrim. What are they supposed to do if it’s suddenly dissolved in the fires of Orodruin? Gandalf’s plan makes no provision for relocating and retraining thousands of Sauron’s minions.
Lmao. Yeah, I know. They’re long past Trump passing notes in class. He’s at crumpling a piece of paper and throwing it at Trudeau and Freeland. Or spitballs.
Provincial and federal politics tend to run on their own separate cycles. The Island Liberals losing power was just because they'd had three terms and it was time for something new (and the Island Tories' showing wasn't exactly overwhelming, either).
Freeland is definitely the star of the cabinet.
The Globe is a weird entity from a partisan perspective because in general the ideological content of their editorials, etc. is most strongly aligned with the Liberals. It's definitely not a Scheer-type POV at all. But because of their owner, at election time they endorse the Conservatives, which creates a whiplash effect when they critiqued Harper nonstop for years and then tried to find a way to say vote Tory anyway.The Globe and Mail is the other centre right establishment paper (remember their "The Tories Deserve another Mandate" endorsement in 2015?)
So when you look over the media landscape... yep. Not a lot of progressive voices out there. Basically it's just The Tyee and sometimes the Toronto Star.
Media has slowly become clickbait over time.
I'd say the CPC do, and the media are just following suit.
Conservatives will never be happy until all media caters to their views.A plan to muffle moderate voices at Canada's largest newspaper company has created confusion and uncertainty in newsrooms across the country.www.canadalandshow.com
Yet you'll hear people complain about the Toronto Star non-stop and never say anything about post media....
