    2019 Canadian Federal Election

    The election campaign started today, and the vote is to be had on the 21st of October. This year's election is fairly tight compared to 4 years ago and promises to be a shitshow, notably because of the new conservative leader and the foundation of Bernier's PPC. The debate has largely diverged in the recent years, and issues have become polarized more and more because of scandals and provincial elections.

    Here are seats & popular vote projections from yesterday, by 338canada's analyst.




    Not really looking forward to this. Scheer's pipeline policies are very scary for Qc and BC, most notably, his anti-abortion agenda caused quite a commotion this summer, and his poor plan for environmental protection is also lacking. As for Trudeau, scandals and inconsistencies aren't more comforting than Scheer's shitty propositions, and a lot of what he said has not happened, as well as hypocritical projects and laws that have seen the day in the last years. I'll probably end up praying the Libs get to power with minority, to ensure a certain level of bipartisan lawmaking and a little bit of discussion in parliament. NDP's been losing a terrifying amount of voters, the BQ's rising a little bit, the Greens are gaining support (but not many seats) and Bernier's PPC is a fucking flaming trashcan.

    I know some fellow Canadians out here are over 18 and could vote, curious to see what some of us think about this.

    EDIT: CBC's compass is out now, fairly detailed as well. https://votecompass.cbc.ca/canada/survey

    Personally, I think we have 0 good options whatsoever and I have no clue what/who I will vote for.

    I might end up voting BQ or Green simply because I don't trust the two main candidates enough. The Trudeau administration really left a sour taste in my mouth.

    40%? that's low!

    In all seriousness, the environmental policies are mostly against the Western provinces' Oil Sands industry, which emits pollution beyond anything in the petrol industry, and private corporations are lobbying to build pipelines to transport their oil across the country, which is very, very unpopular in Qc and BC, for many reasons.

    Enlightened souls like yours make me realize that my degree in politics was not worth completing, but I think my good friend Rust said it better:

    What do paint chips taste like?

    You're all entitled to your opinions but sometimes it's better to not open your mouth.

    When I read this, I thought I was reading the writings of my ignorant 14-year old edgy views. I then checked your admin application and saw you are supposedly 18. I'm seriously scared that people like you are allowed to vote in next year's election. I highly suggest you actually read into policies and where the world really is compared to getting your news from some knock-off Alex Jones.

    Personal gripes aside, I haven't read too much into Canadian politics as it doesn't pertain to me too much, but I know that the Trudeau administration has not done too well in the eyes of many Canadians. I just hope he isn't re-elected and someone with at least more than 2 brain cells is.
