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.

There is no nation in Canada, excepted the First Nations, the Acadians and the Quebecers.

By the way, I hate Trudeau and like John said, one day it will be too late. I'm from France and, believe me, my country can't be called France anymore...

Yup , found that to be a very good article and probably fairly accurate . Some do realize but many probably don't realize that they are helping Trudeau to undermine and destroy Canada's history and heritage . The liberal party and liberal media and universities are doing a good job of brainwashing people and taking God out of the equation.

You are right , Canada is not the only country where it's original identity, history and heritage is slowly being eroded , actually in the last few years more like accelerated. Get ready for a one world government .

Another nice bullying job by the left wing media. Oh no! Someone has an opposing viewpoint! Quick , let's lynch him . So what side is being intolerant? I'm confused.

Ya but that's now 3 separate incidents , 3 strikes and you're out. And he also had his hands all over that student. Why isn't anyone talking about that?

I think Blackface is actually going to boost Trudeau's numbers. Here in the Okanagan people absolutely hate the guy with a passion because they're sick of the PC crap. But now that Trudeau is not all 100% politically correct, they actually support him over this one.

Sounds preposterous, people need to give their heads a shake,seems like no matter the scandal he can do no wrong , he is the new Teflon Man , nothing sticks to him. But you can bet your boots that if the conservatives were in power and this happened to their leader he would have been run outta town faster than you can say lickety split.

So when will the words Merry Christmas be allowed back on school and government billboards?

I sure hope not. He refused to participate in the debate. No Prime Minister who refuses to do so deserves a single vote.
