I've barely noticed so far. But I prefer to seek out news rather than being bombarded with it at every click.

I say this not as a fan of conservative politics (I definitely am not), I say it because I see how weak Trudeau is currently, and parties in Canada generally have trouble staying in power much longer than a decade. Plus Pierre is trying to appeal to the centre with things like his housing proposals (there is a major housing crisis, nobody can deny that).
I'm personally conservative in my politics for the most part. While I may be biased, I think there is a good chance the conservatives will win in 2025 given that it's incredibly rare for a government to maintain power for such a long period of time. Trudeau was elected in 2015. By 2025, that would be 10 years. I'd be shocked if he got another 4 years of power to govern, especially given his weaknesses and the many issues the country currently faces such as inflation and the housing crisis. My guess is people will be ready for a change in government come next election.

It really is a testament to a lack of legitimate choices. I can’t vote for the Liberals again, but I will not vote for Poilievre either. Might just have to spoil my ballot.
