Hope for Canada

Meanwhile in Canada, there is hope.  According to 338Canada (Canada's version of the RealClearPolitics average of polls), as of October 27th, 2023, the Conservative Party of Canada has an average support of 41%, versus Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party at 27%, the socialist NDP party at 18%, and the remainder of the larger national parties at a combined 14%.  41% may sound abysmal and Let's Go Brandon level of support but in Canada there are 5 national parties trying to compete (although one is a regional party and two are quite small in terms of potential).  41% provides a 95% probability that the Conservative party of Canada, led by Pierre Poilievre, would claim a majority government if an election were held today.

In Canada's parliamentary system, the House of Commons serves as both the executive and legislative branch.  A majority conservative government would be like Republicans winning the House, Senate and the White House all at once. A lot of Trudeau damage could be undone. Unfortunately we are likely still a long way away from an election as the Trudeau government has a signed deal with the socialist NDP part to form a coalition government through to 2025. Despite having a minority government subject to non-confidence motions, and being subject to forced elections, thanks to this agreement, Justin Trudeau need not worry right now and he is free to try to buy back votes with hypocritical, cynical, and politically motivated changes to his own environmental policy (for example). Worse, he has time to get that strategy to work.  I don't think it will ultimately work, but Trudeau still has time to do significant damage to Canada, on top of the terrible things he's done in the last eight years.

ADDENDUM:  I thought sharing this video might help explain what Justin Trudeau brazenly is trying to do.
