Conservative Leader @AndrewScheer takes hard line approach to rail blockades. Calls on Prime Minister to order RCMP to enforce court injunctions, says demonstrators are radical activists holding the economy hostage, and adds the protesters need to "check their privilege" #cdnpoli
- NDP has 16% popular vote but only 24 (7%) seats. -Bloc has less than half that in votes but 32 seats. - Libs won 36 more seats with less votes than the conservatives. - Greens have 6.5% of vote but <1% seats.
But, the conservatives gained the majority of their votes in Alberta and Saskatchewan AND they gained all but one seat in Alberta - we need electoral reform but NOT because two provinces voted almost exclusively blue. First past the post absolutely sucks and we need something better. But, I don't know what it should be. I know Trudeau stopped the reform last election because of two reasons: one - he didn't want to go to the public on it and two: the one that was recommended was not what he/they wanted (it was also the one that BC has shot down multiple times).
Andrew Scheer previously said the CPC platform would be out in time for advance voting, which starts Friday. Now Scheer won’t commit to releasing the platform on a specific date, but says Canadians will have “plenty of time to make up their minds before they vote” #cdnpolipic.twitter.com/JSdtHuL9Og
1/8 For those saying they need to "strategically vote Liberal" to keep Scheer out: here are at least 75 ridings where you should strategic vote NDP, based on results in the past 8 elections, incumbents, returning MPs, etc. #Cdnpoli#Elxn43#UniteTheLeftVote#ElectProgressives
Remember when Doug Ford said no one will lose their jobs? Remember when Jason Kenney said Grassroots Guaranteed? Don’t trust conservative promises they will gut the crap out of public services in order to push for private... #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #elxn43 #yyc #yeg #onpoli
Canadians who think that racism doesn't exist here or that we don't have the same far-right nutjobs that America has only need to spend two minutes looking at a Yellow Vest Canada Facebook page. It's all there right in the open - and they're proud of it. #cdnpoli
