It’s finally election night in Canada — “What a disaster”
You must be signed in to watch premium episodes.
It’s election night. We post my show tonight at 8pm ET, as usual, which is just before the results will come in, so instead of preparing a lengthy show that will immediately become obsolete, I’d like to invite you to join me, Sheila Gunn Reid, Keean Bexte and David Menzies for our live election night coverage:
Keean and I will be right here in our Toronto headquarters; Sheila will be at the Conservative election night event in Saskatchewan (unless they handcuff her like they did with David.) Meanwhile, David will be at the People’s Party headquarters near Quebec City, in Maxime Bernier’s riding.
It's going to be a great show. We did a live show on the night of Alberta’s provincial election, and it was a huge success with our viewers — We actually got more viewers than the other networks did, including the CBC’s livestream.
So how will it all end? Eric Grenier aggregated all the polls in Canada, and he says there’s a 13 per cent chance of a Liberal majority, and a 48 per cent chance of a Liberal minority. He says there’s a 37 per cent chance of a Conservative minority, and a two per cent chance of a Conservative majority.
If I had to predict, I’d predict a Liberal minority — I just don’t think Scheer and pull it off; the party has crumbled in Quebec, to the benefit of the Bloc Quebecois. So much for pandering to the dairy lobby.
A better Conservative leader could have capitalized on the SNC-Lavlain scandal, the blackface scandal, and Trudeau’s own deep unpopularity as a man.
How can you have all that, plus the foreign policy disasters, plus the economic disasters, the tax disasters — and not beat Trudeau?
Well, I hope I’m wrong. We’ll find out in a few hours.
