Episode details

On Monday, the Liberals won the Mississauga–Lakeshore byelection, holding a seat that the Conservatives will need to win if they ever form a government.

Do the results have any broader implications? And where do the federal parties sit as they end 2022 and look ahead to 2023?

Plus — what to make of the Manitoba provincial byelection results in Kirkfield Park?

Joining me this week to chat about it all are two former party pollsters, Dan Arnold and Andrew Enns.

Dan, now chief strategy officer at Pollara, was director of research and advertising in the prime minister's office and the Liberals’ pollster during the last three federal election campaigns. Andrew is executive vice-president at Léger. He conducting polling for the Conservatives in Stephen Harper’s last three campaigns and has polled for provincial conservative parties across the country.
