The hate speech change is baffling - basically repeal protection for trans people ?

No stop taking people to court and fake quasi court for saying "I hate X group".  That includes all types of groups under the law.

But violent threatening hate speech is still illegal.

I don't think hate speech has been redefined in law recently.  The only change I see is gender removed.

Conservatives robo-texted me.  Another reason not to vote for the pricks.

I finally got around to watching the English debate tonight.  My favourite moment was after the debate:

Right?  That wasn't even a question, it was just an attack.

Props to Jagmeet never losing his cool.

I don't see any difference between this and Donald Trump saying "You're fake news" to CNN reporters and refusing to answer.  I don't really blame either Trump or Singh, i'm sure Rebel has said nasty things about him, they can answer or not answer from whomever they want.  The Bloc leader won't answer Rebel questions either.

Jagmeet is indeed good at never losing his cool.  JT has a hot temper.

1)  CNN isn't a propaganda mouthpiece spreading misinformation.  Now if Jagmeet refused answers from the National Post, I could see your point.
2)  What was the question, whatever it was got lost in the 'you're never gonna be prime minister and you act like a child'.  If they want to be taken seriously, they need to act seriously.

Have you watched CNN in the last 6 years?

Pretty much all US cable news is trash.

He doesn't have to answer their questions.  He doesn't answer any of their questions.  He probably has a good reason for doing so.  People at the Rebel are d-bag morons.

CNN the news channel is sensationalized like MSNBC and Fox, but if you go to CNN the news website, they report the news.  Their White House correspondents report for the news outlet. 

They may have a bias as do all news organizations, but they're more comparable to the National Post which I mentioned and you didn't address. 

Rebel News is not in the same class of reporting.  If you go to their website it's misinformation and sensationalism.  Yes, nobody has to answer any questions to anyone, but your comparison to CNN is way off base. 

CNN is more like the National Post and Globe and Mail.  Reputable, but with a slant.

So folks, what are we predicting for tomorrow? 

Unlike last election, I think the PPC is going to damage to the CPC.  I am going for a slight Liberal minority with the NDP and CPC both making gains.

My riding was the closest race in Canada in 2019 with the CPC winning by a couple of hundred votes.  I'm calling for a much deserved NDP win this time around.

I agree... if anyone is undercounted it's the PPC and that can only damage the CPC.

But who knows - it's pretty close anything could happen.

Will be interesting how many voters from the fringe parties choose to vote strategically.  PPC could rob CPC of a victory.

The election is pretty darn close in the polls.

It was barely a question, yet he answered it.
