The Weekly Writ for May 18
Pierre Poilievre still leads the Index, Steven Del Duca might not be breaking through and what's next for Jason Kenney.
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 today’s Weekly Writ, we wonder what will come next for Jason Kenney and his leadership review, check in on the Conservative Leadership Index and welcome a new federal leader to the fold — he’s a bit of a Maverick.
In the polls of the week, we get an update on federal party standings and Canadians’ views on abortion, and I answer the question I posed last week: is Steven Del Duca breaking through?
This week’s Ontario tipping point riding implies the PCs need a decent (and growing) lead to win a majority. Then, I tell the tale of a man named Farquhar and mark five years for a leader who has yet to lead his party into an election.
Let’s get to it.
