Just a whole bunch of comeuppance news tonight.
Conservative MP's are now complaining in the HoC that Liberals are calling out their disinformation on social media. Also, complaining the Speaker shuts off their microphone when they act like children. Priceless.— Tom Whittaker (@whittakertp) November 7, 2023
Scrimshaw has an interesting column about the recent "Trudeau is Toast!" polling: Comebacks, Challenges and the Connoisseur's Curse
Because the issue with the Convoy wasn’t what they were saying, it was the fact that residents couldn’t leave their fucking homes for 3 weeks, the biggest single non-governmental source of employment closed for weeks, and the honking and the fumes fucked with people’s health https://t.co/DAyTEbFThx— Evan Scrimshaw (@EScrimshaw) November 7, 2023
I am afraid Trudeau isn't going to get another two years - I expect Poilievre and the entire CPC are trying every trick in the book to get Singh to abandon his agreement with Trudeau next spring -- but I expect the Liberals will be ready for that one, too....Poilievre has spent millions – which he has to spend, and good for him – on a relentlessly positive ad campaign. It’s Harper’s sweater vest, except with a bigger ad buy behind it and Poilievre’s kids are young enough to look cute in the B-roll.... The kids do look cute, and he looks normal.It’s also not going to matter when the Liberals eventually go on air with an ad blitz of their own about crypto as a way to opt out of inflation and banning all vaccine mandates and all the other crank lunacy that Poilievre’s said. We see them trial ballooning the eventual TV spots with all these digital videos – they’ll find the one that works best and hit him with it, in time. Will it matter? It’ll probably blunt his rising favourables (up to 40% per Abacus, and the ascent coinciding with the ad blitz’s start), when it comes. But what will matter is how the economy is when the election’s called, and whether people come to believe that Poilievre will win.Another two years of columns from everyone about how Trudeau’s dead and Poilievre’s inevitable will probably have the effect of hurting Poilievre....
Democrats won big in today's US elections:

Fed cons: housing crisis is still Trudeau's fault
Feds to municipalities: here's an incentive to do something about the housing crisis
Munis start to work with feds on addressing housing crisis
Con premiers to Fed Libs: butt out
Fed cons: it's still Trudeau's fault
And I thought all these were hilarious:

If you believe teachers are overpaid, work 5 hours a day for 6 months a year, have a too-rich pension, retire too early, go on strike every year, and have too many benefits paid for by your taxes, good news! Applications for B.Ed programs are due Dec. 1.https://t.co/8x5qYlnK7N— Jenny L. (@jennyleeshee) October 14, 2023
