I think Trudeau did himself a lot of good during the debate as he exceeded very low expectations. The Tory strategy to paint him as weak may have backfired. He looked particularly strong during his exchange with Mulclair on the Clarity Act, IMHO.

I see ( by tapes) our man Stephen is invoking the same scare tactics as Bush, but we has ISIS, coming instead of Saddam, and will arrest any "terror vacationists'......Oh! yeh I can see it at the immigration counter....."Well young man you have a good sun tan, been in Syria right.....Oh! no sir I was vacationing in Isrea or some other sunny spot....Ok you are cleared".....does he realy expect any of our (Canadain) war tourists to admit where they really were....
Guess we will now have a run of buying in the gun shops,( like in the US ) long guns of course, paper work for hand guns is too long...

An update on our slow-moving election campaign.

The other day Angus Reid posted the results of 6000=n poll
NDP 36
CPC 32
LPC 23
http://angusreid.org/federal-election-2015-august26/

Today Forum released a poll showing:
NDP 40
LPC 30
CPC 23
http://poll.forumresearch.com.pdf

Tomorrow EKOS will be releasing theirs. Early word is that it will not disagree much with today's Forum poll.

Also, Harper's present director of issues management (i.e. damage control) showed up at the hearings to have an "impromptu talk" with Harper's former director of issues management during a break in the latter's cross-examination. All above board - as evidenced by the fact that he tried hiding himself in a red hoodie..

NDP's lack of governing performance in Alberta is evident. The NDP's anti-business policies in Alberta reminds some of the NDP Bob Rae Days.

I lived in Ontario and BC when the NDP took over things and it was a total disaster in both provinces.....At the time in BC the business community was destroyed by NDP policys and the same thing will happen in Alberta and possible the country IF they win the next election.......as the saying goes..."these guys could #### up the Lords prayer without really trying"......

Please tell us more, since they have only been in power for around a month and a half and the two main things they have done - increase in minimum wage and a royalty review - were part of the campaign promises which got them elected in the first place.

They are not anti-pipeline either. They oppose some pipelines, such as Keystone, and favour others, such as Kinder-Morgan to Vancouver and Energy East to Atlantic Canada.
