Trudeau will break records for failure and not being re-elected on Oct21 2019.  Totally wiped out in every riding. This will happen. Vote conservative to save Canada.

Expect more MPs to bow out

An analysis of the data on the Library of Parliament website shows that first-term majority governments have seen an average of 22 per cent of their caucuses (defined as the number of seats won in the previous vote) decide not to run for re-election -- about three times the Liberals' current rate of non-incumbency.

Liberal bowing out of fall election - but it appears they haven't misplaced their incumbency edge.

Andrew Leslie is just the latest Liberal MP to take a pass on the October election. But the only really unusual thing about the list of Liberal incumbents opting not to run again is that, by the standards of first-term governments, it's pretty short. Leslie, a retired lieutenant-general in the Canadian Armed Forces who was touted as a star candidate when he was first elected for the riding of Orléans in 2015, brings to 13 the number of MPs elected under the Liberal banner who are not running again in the fall.

Another five former Liberal MPs now sitting as Independents have not yet confirmed their plans for October. They include former cabinet ministers Jane Philpott, Hunter Tootoo and Jody Wilson-Raybould. (Philpott and Wilson-Raybould were, of course, ejected from the Liberal caucus in the wake of the SNC-Lavalin affair.)

That brings to 18 the number of ridings where the Liberals won't have an incumbent on the ballot in October. Every governing party first elected to office in Canada with a majority government has seen at least 10 per cent of its caucus not run for re-election at the next opportunity.

For Trudeau's Liberals, the number of one-and-done MPs adds up to just seven per cent of the 184 seats the party won in 2015 (or just under 10 per cent, if the independents are added to the list).

Here are the key results:

Conservatives – 40%

Liberals – 27%

NDP – 12%

Greens – 11%

Bloc – 5%


Conservatives lead by more than 10 points
 

POLITICIANS LEAVING THE PARTY BEFORE THE TITANIC SINKS!

How about Maxime Bernier?

WHAT ABOUT THAT OTHER NEW PARTY!?

He even accuses Scheer of copying him. Like how Bernier opposed Canada signing the UN’s Global Compact for Migration before Scheer did. He chalks this up to his belief that the Tories come up with their ideas by polling rather than going with their gut.

Bernier’s cross-country tour that has attracted “Mad Max” devotees and undecided voters who are curious about the “principled alternative” to the Conservatives. These public fora provide insight into his ground game and what’s drawing people toward a party that has falsely been accused of pandering to the FAR right.
