The Weekly Writ for Dec. 8
A new look for the PQ, a trio of federal polls and an early election gamble that pays off.
Welcome to the Weekly Writ, a round-up of the latest federal and provincial polls, election news and political trivia that lands in your inbox every Wednesday morning.
In this edition of the Weekly Writ, I break down the latest in Erin O’Toole’s fight to hold onto the Conservative leadership, more money troubles for the Greens and a stamp of approval from members for the People’s Party leader. Meanwhile, the Parti Québécois adopts a new logo, the Alberta New Democrats name a new candidate and the New Brunswick Liberals decide to get themselves a new leader.
Then, I take a look at a trio of federal polls, strong numbers for François Legault and troublesome numbers for Jason Kenney.
In the recurring segments, I profile the tightest three-way race in Ontario, a Quebec election gamble that paid off big for Jean Charest and mark a milestone for the Alberta premier.
Let’s get to it.
