UnpublishedTV, CDNPOLI: Spring Election?
<< See VIDEO below >>
The leaves are bursting from their buds. Early season flowers are starting to bloom, and in the minds of some Canadians, it is time for a spring federal election. Will we see one?
Canada remains in the grip of the 3rd wave of the pandemic as case numbers rise and lockdowns become the norm. We haven’t been to the polls as a nation since 2019 when the Liberals scored a minority government. Since then, the pandemic has swamped our consciousness.
There are rumblings across the country about a possible spring election. We will see a federal budget on April 17th which will be a confidence vote. The Grits have been propped up by the NDP so it will be interesting to see which side of the budget they land.
Recent polls have put the Liberals as much as seven points ahead of the Conservatives if an election is called. Some might see an election call as being “opportunistic “.
The Unpublished.vote poll question this week asked: Do you want a federal election this spring? Our audience response so far:
- 34.5% = Yes
- 60.0% = No
- 03.8% = Maybe
- 01.7% = Unsure
However you’re watching and listening to our show, whether on UnpublishedOttawa.com or through our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and our podcast channels—iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify, iHeartRadio and more—we would like to remind you that you can “cast your vote” on this topic at Unpublished.vote, and then email your MP to tell them why.
