The Weekly Writ for Apr. 20
The French go to the polls, Charest raises cash and Mr. Cucumber goes down to defeat.
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 take a short trip outre mer and check in on the latest foofaraw from the Conservative leadership race, including some polling data that is good for Pierre Poilievre and not so good for Jean Charest.
Then, I highlight a riding to watch in Ontario’s upcoming election that features a rare nomination challenge, I take the clock back to the defeat of Mr. Cucumber in 1989, and mark a milestone that I’d prefer to forget.
