Canada Federal Election 2019 Predictions

Post by TheForce » Sun Oct 20, 2019 5:54 pm

What are your thoughts on this? Any predictions? I think Justin Trudeau will be re-elected but if not I think Jagmeet Singh will take power. He seems to have a calm demeanor and is very thoughtful about what he says.

I am unhappy with the current US campaigns. I don't really care for any of the candidates that much at all. So I have been following the Canadian elections somewhat.

I don't see any combinations that Jagmeet Singhs becomes Prime Minister.

I estimate a Conservative Party minority government with the NDP as opposition, with another 2011-style collapse of the Liberals and the Peoples' Party of Canada gaining a few seats, with the Bloc and Greens staying around 5 or less....

I predict a Liberal minority with the NDP or the Bloc holding the balance of power.

Conservative minority governments seldom last long. They refuse to compromise their principles to gain the support of other parties. Liberals have no principles, so they'll work with any party just to cling to power. Some of our best governments have been minority governments. Some of our most progressive legislation has come from minority governments.

Liberals in minority government allow the minor parties like ours to dictate the terms for our support.

Barack Obama endorsed Trudeau for another term. In doing so, the former president stated, "If I had a son, he'd look like Justin."

Foreign interference in Canada's election by a former President.

Liberal Minority Government with the Conservatives in a very close second place. The NDP will do better than what some people expected, but will still be in third place.

It sounded like Mr. Singh wasn't interested in a coalition. What time do the polls close? Wasn't it 7:30 or was it 9:30 tonight?

Justin Trudeau remains the Prime Minister with a minority government. Was up late watching the CBC when it was called.
