Trudeau is done now
Even with the news breaking today the polls are still neck and neck. I generally don't support the liberals but it would be silly to write him off before the election campaign even starts.

I agree isn’t it unreal ? I guess many Canadians are corrupt just like our Prime Minister

I would say that's wishful thinking. Very few people vote on how ethical a politician is. Trump won the Republican nomination and then the presidential election despite widespread beliefs that he was the least ethical candidate.

My prediction: Trudeau Liberals win a majority again, but don't win the popular vote.

I pretty much agree with your assessment... don't know about a majority, but a minority at least.

When push comes to shove, ideology wins over ethics. Right-leaning voters will crow about Trudeau's lack of ethics, Liberal voters will swallow their pride and vote for him anyway. I also expect the NDP to bleed enough voters to compensate for any drop in Liberal votes. Singh might as well drop out now, along with Bernier... neither is going to be a factor in this election.

For the record, I didn't vote Liberal or Conservative in the last election, and I doubt either will be getting my vote this time.
