- Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has maintained that he would continue doing his job when asked if he would consider stepping down due to low approval ratings.1
- Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Trudeau claimed that there was 'a lot of important work to do' while reaffirming that he would 'deliver for Canadians in these difficult moments.'2
- The news comes as Trudeau met with party members to discuss strategy as Liberal caucus chair Brenda Shanahan stated that the party is having 'very frank' conversations about issues like housing and the rising cost of living.3
- Trudeau admitted that the current cost of living crisis was 'causing enormous difficulties' as he acknowledged 'grumbling across the country.' The current coalition agreement between Trudeau's Liberal Party and the New Democrats is non-binding and could collapse before the next election, due in 2025.4
- During Trudeau's time at the latest G20 summit in New Delhi, India, both #TrudeauNationalDisgrace and #TrudeauResign trended on X – formerly known as Twitter.5
- A survey by Abacus Data taken between Sept. 8-12 found that, out of 2,125 adults, 26% are in favor of Trudeau's Liberal Party, while 41% say they would vote for Canada's Conservative Party.6
- Right narrative, as provided by Nationalpost. As Trudeau and his party continue to collapse in the polls, an air of desperation can be felt within Canada's ruling elite. Despite their best attempts, the Liberal Party's efforts to regain public trust have fallen flat. The Conservatives are the heir to the country's governance, and Canadians are looking forward to making their voices heard in the next elections.
- Left narrative, as provided by Toronto star. Despite recent success, it's unlikely that Poilievre will become Canada's next prime minister, and there's still time for Trudeau to show the nation once again that he's the right man for the job. In a world where political opinion can flip in an instant, a single stumble could see the Conservative Party fall out of the limelight, and there is no guarantee that right-wing policies will appease the entire country's temperament.
