During his campaign kickoff speech on August 4, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau pegged the New Democrats' plan to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour in federally regulated sectors as an attempt to "peddle false hope," claiming the change would not benefit 99 per cent of minimum wage earners in Canada.

Trudeau Liberals hunt for centre-right voters

It has been a favourite election disaster scenario. Two centre-left parties fighting it out for the succession to Stephen Harper. While the Liberals and the NDP knock each other around, the centre-right Conservatives squeeze out another win.

That particular political story turns out to be overstated. Both the Liberals and the NDP are wooing the "middle class," building defensive positions against Conservative attacks, not trying to outdo each other in being "progressive."
