Elizabeth May wins the debate with a simple visual



  1. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Didn’t watch. Know anyone who did?

    Don’t think Trudeau is hurt THIS time. But IMHO, it’s a mistake to repeatedly ghost oneself. After a while it sinks in: what is he afraid of and more importantly, what does he absolutely not want to talk about repeatedly in this campaign? Here’s a hint: three letters. If it becomes all about SNC pretty much all of the time then Trudeau is royally screwed.

    • Luke says:

      I planned to watch it, but then I forgot. True story.

    • Fred from BC says:

      “Didn’t watch. Know anyone who did?”

      Nope. And from at least two of the six recaps I’ve read, I was wise to stick to my “no watching of debates if Elizabeth May is included” policy of the last two decades or so. She did exactly what she always does: TALKED OVER everyone else, making actual debate impossible. In her world, the person with the loudest voice is the winner; in mine, that’s just rude and annoying.

      (insert Donald Trump comparison here…;)

      But to be honest, I don’t even care to hear what the NDP says either. I would much prefer the American style debate where only the two people who could possibly form government are heard from…up here, it’s just grandstanding, virtue signalling, clever quips or stunts to try and get that all-important sound byte on the evening news (well done, Elizabeth!) and a colossal waste of our time.

  2. It must have been tough for Scheer, since it would benefit him if the NDP ans Greens did a but better in the polls.

  3. The Doctor says:

    It screams out arrogance. That’s the word the opposition parties, especially the Tories, should be using repeatedly. And lots of voters remember Liberal arrogance from the past as well.

  4. Brendan says:

    A serious job applicant will generally do his/her best to meet a prospective employer’s interview expectations and timeline.
    This behaviour would seem to indicate that the employment candidate either…
    1. Doesn’t recognize who the boss is in this relationship,
    Or 2. Has little very little respect for the employer who is going to make a big decision in 5 weeks time!

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:


      The TRUDEAU philosophy, therefore by fiat the Liberal philosophy, is to play Canadians for fools. TRUDEAU thinks Canadians believe any and all BS that comes out of his mouth. He’s in for a rude awakening on election night.

      • Douglas W says:

        Ronald, hope you’re right. But polls now have the Trudeau Liberals poised to win a majority government. When, exactly, are you going to start back peddling?

        • Ronald O'Dowd says:


          Five seconds after the projected result is announced. Until then, I stick to my guns just like I did earlier with Trudeau and Trump.

  5. Joseph Bagadonitz says:

    I can’t stand the woman and I agree. Beautiful move.

    The only thing that could have beaten it is if one of them had come out with a cardboard cutout of Trudeau and put it behind the podium. It would be more articulate and intelligent the real thing
