Gérard Deltell appears to pounding the pavement in Quebec;

While its a good strategy at the moment to be present when voters are potentially disenfranchised with the current government,

However to the point Bugs often makes;
Sooner or later someone is going to have to offer Quebec voters a reason to vote for them, thus far we aren't seeing that from anyone.

The Conservative Party of Canada hopes to score breakthroughs in Laval and Lower Laurentian ridings, says Gérard Deltell, the CPC’s pointman for Quebec.

In an interview last week with Newsfirst Multimedia, Deltell, who represents the riding of Louis-Saint-Laurent near Quebec City, and who was accompanied by CPC candidates François Desrochers from Mirabel and Maikel Mikhael from Rivière-des-Mille-Îles, outlined some of the Conservative Party’s campaign strategy.

In a press release issued by the Conservative Party, Deltell calls CPC leader Andrew Scheer “a Francophile and strong believer in the values of Quebec. We’ve felt an incredible momentum of renewal within the party, particularly as it relates to new candidates and new member from all regions of Quebec.”

interesting article. The two target ridings are both currently held by the BQ, by the right wing of the BQ to be specific ...

as for the reasons to vote CPC, it is clear that the most pressing issue is getting rid of trudeau-deux ...

other reasons given are, in order; trade, taxation, deficit, and finally, pragmatism (a.k.a. le beau risque)

New Leger polls suggests federal Liberals lagging Conservatives


OTTAWA — A new poll conducted by Leger for The Canadian Press suggests the governing federal Liberals have lost ground to the Conservatives over the past month.

OTTAWA — A new poll conducted by Leger for The Canadian Press suggests the governing federal Liberals have lost ground to the Conservatives over the past month.

Overall, 31 per cent of respondents polled after the federal budget was released Tuesday said they would vote for Justin Trudeau's Liberals if an election were held now, a decline of about three percentage points from February.

That compared with 37 per cent who said they would back the Conservatives under leader Andrew Scheer, a one-point increase from February, while 12 per cent said they would vote NDP and eight per cent the Greens.

Scheer also jumped ahead of Trudeau on the question of who would make a better prime minister as the Tory leader got the backing of 25 per cent of respondents compared with 24 per cent for Trudeau, who has been struggling to contain damage from the SNC-Lavalin affair.

As for the budget, which the Liberals are hoping will help turn the page on SNC-Lavalin, 12 per cent of respondents said it was good and 19 per cent that it was bad, but 39 per cent said they didn't really know about it.

Leger's internet-based survey, which cannot be assigned a margin of error because online polls are not considered random samples, was conducted March 19 and 20 using computer-assisted web-interviewing technology and heard from 1,529 Canadians who are eligible to vote and were recruited from the firm's online panel.

What strikes me is how small the shift is, given the circumstances.

The Liberals have lost the support of 3% of the population, but the Conservatives have only increased their support by 1%.

We should have seen the Liberals losing 5-10% with the Conservatives picking up half of that -- because this is NOT a left-right issue. This is a two-tiered justice vr our ideals issue. It's like good vr evil.

It isn't as if people are going to the NDP in droves, either. In fact, I think that's settled in the public's mind ... the alternative is the Conservative Party ... but somehow, the Conservative Party isn't connecting with them.

The Leger Poll offers some interesting insight;
https://leger360.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Federal-Politics-March-21-2019.pdf

Quote:
During the 2015 Federal Election campaign, Prime Minister Trudeau indicated that the Federal Government should go into deficit for a few years in order to stimulate economic growth and employment in Canada. Federal deficits have reached 18 Billion $ on average.After four years, do you believe that this was the right or the wrong decision to take?


44% Wrong Decision Vs 20% Right Decision Overall

Regionally Ontario is @ 46% Wrong Decision.

It seems pretty clear this should be the issue the Tories drive home over the next few months along with whatever scandal of the day arises with the current Government.

In terms of the regional breakdown;
Atlantic Canada for a few polls in a row has been far tighter than it has been over the last few years, it may be safe to say that the LPC isn't likely to retain their sweep of the region come October.

The CPC is also seemingly punching through as the second party in Quebec which may very well be a good thing if the Liberal support is largely concentrated in and around the Island of Montreal.

BC is also proving interesting now as their appears to be a three way race on the left with the GPC securing a lot of support out there.

This poll confirms my sense that the public expected more from this government, particularly in the form of infrastructure improvements. I know there was a moment when the metropolitan cities were licking their lips in anticipation of infrastructure money. Public transit plans were dusted off ...

It makes sense, in Canadian's eyes, to borrow to build something of enduring value for the population. It makes less sense to borrow to pay for extravagant subsidies for single motherhood.

The Liberals are fortunate to be in a good phase of the economy. I don't see how anything they are planning would encourage investment, but those consequences are down the road. Even so, the pollster's question almost asks are you sorry the Liberals got elected? which is a punishing question. The general public is breaking 2 to 1 that we took the wrong turn on the road.

The role for the politician who wants to win is to give this feeling expression and to amplify it. To rally those who are as concerned about competence as much as crookedness.

What's missing in JWRs case is the story of how SNC Lavelin used money to get influence in Canada, and with the present government. Will that ever come to light? Not likely. This is what is missing.

The Conservatives, IMO, ought to broaden and sharpen their critiques. There's more wrong with this government than SNC Lavalin. It's their general lack of competence, their policy sloppiness in execution.

The public has to be offered an alternative. They have to see effective people in front of them. It's a time for Andrew to show off his bench.
