We dive into the Liberal platform, what’s in it and what’s glaringly not. After calling this election, having months to prepare, and honing their policy, the Liberals seems to be flailing when it comes to vision. We’re left with a hodgepodge of left over promises from their previous campaigns that seem to have been left unfinished. Why should we think 2021 is any different?

Last night, we had our first debate in TVA’s Face-Á-Face. The French language debate had some high stakes for The BQ’s Yves-François Blanchet after a gaffe prone start to their race. Will his performance help his party in the polls? Justin Trudeau seems intent on making this election a referendum on the unvaccinated and he doubled down during the face off. Is anyone buying it?

We profile NDP candidate Shawna Lewkowitz in the Candidate Corner Shawna is a tireless advocate for working Canadians and is running an incredibly tight race in London West, a long time Liberal riding. Let’s help Shawna paint London West orange!
