Edition #70 — Our Politics Panel Takes One Last Dive into the Federal Election Campaign

Our politics panel — Sylvia Sutherland, Sean Conway, Jenny Lanciaut, Donald Fraser & Tim Etherington– looks at the possible outcomes on Election Day:  minority governments, coalitions or confidence-supply agreements.  They explain the possible options should no party win a clear majority.  And they assess the two major surprises of the last few weeks: the soaring popularity of Jagmeet Singh’s NDP and the highly consequential rise of Yves-Francois Blanchet’s Bloc Quebecois. Beyond saying that the next government will be a minority, our panel concludes that this election, both locally and nationally, is now too close to call.
