The Weekly Writ for May 11
The Conservative debate, Canadians' views on Ukraine and is Steven Del Duca breaking through?
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 gird ourselves for tonight’s Conservative leadership race, check in on the federal boundaries redistribution and marvel at John Horgan’s fundraising.
Then, we look at a poll on Canadians’ views on Ukraine and take a peak at a survey that could mean big things in Ontario’s provincial election campaign.
Finally, I profile this week’s tipping point riding in Ontario, a leadership race that flew under the radar in 1990 and an anniversary for the Quebec Liberal leader.
IN THE NEWS
Conservative leadership debate tonight
Last week, the Conservative leadership contestants (sans Patrick Brown) took part in a debate organized by the Canada Strong & Free Network, previously known as the Manning Centre.
