B.C. candidate still campaigning after ouster from Conservatives over anti-LGBTQ2 comments

On Saturday, Leung’s campaign manager Travis Trost — still surrounded by Conservative signage at the campaign office — said her ouster has not changed their plans.

“Elections Canada has informed me the ballots are printed, Heather’s name is on the ballot, and Conservative is going to be attached to her name,” he said.

While Leung’s name will still appear on the ballot as the Conservative candidate, the party said she will not receive any support from the Conservatives. If she wins the election, she will not be part of the Conservative caucus.

The deadline to name candidates for all parties was Monday, meaning the Conservatives will be unable to put forward a new candidate to replace Leung.

Close elections like this one are rare — and hard to predict

We’re nearly four weeks into this campaign and the polls haven’t budged — meaning the Conservatives and Liberals remain neck-and-neck in national voting intentions just two weeks out from the Oct. 21 vote.

It might seem unusual that this election has remained deadlocked for so long — and it is. Only a handful of previous federal elections saw the leading parties polling this close to each other for this long.

Baloney Meter: Andrew Scheer says Canada sends foreign aid to rich countries

“The Trudeau government sends $2.2 billion of so-called foreign aid to middle- and upper-income countries like Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, China, Iran, Italy, Mexico and Turkey. Worse still, some of that money is shovelled to repressive regimes that are adversarial if not outright hostile to Canadian interests and values — countries like Iran, North Korea and Russia ….”
