  1. Place your bets, everyone, on if there’ll be a surprise “surge” in COVID cases just before election day, resulting in the postponement of in-person voting and a hasty switch to mass main-in balloting, which the Liberals will squeak out a win.

    What I described above is what happened in the Newfoundland & Labrador provincial election back in March.

    1. @JohnnyCageRock Just have to make sure there’s no ID verification and multiple ballots can be sent to the same address for residents that lived there prior, then it’ll be super secure. Let’s also toss in the deceased voter ballots aswell, cause you wouldn’t want them to not vote from the grave. Gotta get every vote in, amirite?

  2. It’ll stay liberal. Gotta keep that free welfare and inflation on the raise. Just keep filling the wealthiest pockets instead of the peoples. Miss the beauty of my home province but that’s about it.

    1. Maybe conservatives should run on eliminating universal health care and welfare. Could be the winning ticket.

  3. Get rid of the liberals so a new government can have a real investigation into the Nova Scotia massacre April 18 & 19, 2020.

  4. The Liberal party are the Democrats of Canada and the Conservative party are the R.I.N.O’s. Same-same.

  5. Why couldn’t he answer that question honestly in the past few weeks?? If you can’t be
    Upfront, you don’t have my vote.
