Canadian Politics: A more competitive landscape
Over the late summer, Canada’s political situation became more competitive, as Liberal Party support dipped, and the Conservatives saw gains. Today, an election would see 39% vote Liberal, 35% Conservative and 15% NDP.
The biggest regional races show a dead heat in Ontario, a narrowing Liberal lead in BC, while in Quebec the Liberals continue to lead by 21 points, although we do see a rise in BQ support.
Government approval for the Liberals which has held around 50% since the end of 2016, saw a sharp drop to 40% with 38% disapproving of the job performance of the federal government.
Despite this, views of Prime Minister Trudeau remain solid with 48% having a positive impression of him.
We also report on how Canadians are feeling about the proposed tax changes for private businesses in this report.
