The Weekly Writ for Apr. 13
The Conservative endorsement race, an election night SNAFU in Quebec and another Ford takes the stage.
Welcome to the Weekly Writ, a round-up of the latest federal and provincial polls, election news and political history that lands in your inbox every Wednesday morning.
In this edition of the Weekly Writ, we have another approved candidate and two announced debates in the Conservative leadership contest, and I check in on who is leading in the race for endorsements. Then, the CAQ wins big in a Quebec byelection that raises some serious questions for the PQ and the Liberals.
The Ontario PCs are leading (and widening their lead) in a new poll and I profile a Toronto-area riding where the PCs will have a familiar name on the ballot.
Then, I take a look back at the 1981 Quebec election and mark a milestone for the prime minister.
Let’s get to it.
