Turn off and tune out Canad's mainstream media as it's time for Canada to start moving to the left again

 Here is an excellent article about the birth of medicare which just shows what can be accomplished against the people who presently control Canada

There is no reason why Canada can't have universal dental care, universal pharmacare, universal education including apprenticeship and universal housing. And there is a very simple way to achieve this which is the redistribution of wealth through Canada's taxation system Did you know that Canada is fifth in the countries on planet earth with millionaires on a per capita basis Now you know why the rich get all their tax breaks with trust fund kids like Trudeau running our governments

Seeing as the Liberals and the Conservatives are deadlocked in the latest polling are we about to enter the realm of minority government once again in Canada?

Unfortunately with FPTP it would only takes a 3-point gain by either the CPC or LPC to put one of them into phoney FPTP "majority" territory.

It is also possible that the Liberals could get a majority with a record low percentage -- given that Green, PP, BQ and NDP may all have extreme inefficient vote totals and the Conservatives may even as well to a lesser degree as they pile up votes in Alberta and other strongholds. the Liberals could be in majority terrirtory now.

Also your point, well taken of course, ought to be in the ocntext that margin of error in any of these polls pretty much already puts a party there.

Right now the Liberals only have to lose 12 seats in October and we will have a minority government
