For the week of July 18, 2021:
Despite the law saying the next election is in October 2023, the Trudeau Liberals are planning to head to the polls more than two years early.
In between Coquitlam and Surrey spending photo ops, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in North Vancouver shooting a campaign video.
Pollster Mario Canseco says the Liberals will try to turn a campaign into a referendum on the pandemic, in which they unleashed billions of dollars on social and economic spending. They are also hoping to capitalize on Conservative Erin O’Toole’s lack of profile. Could O’Toole’s only hope be a campaign prosecuting the litany of Liberal scandals?
In B.C. ridings, can NDP leader Jagmeet Singh overcome a softening of support for B.C. NDP Premier John Horgan? Where will Green votes go while the party implodes?
Hear Mario’s thoughts on the above issues as the clock ticks toward a snap election.
Plus Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines and commentary.
