Lol...it was usually the Trump team that was dinged with Twitter violations. Way to go LPC!
It hasn’t been a good start to the LPC campaign. I think O’toole had the best start. We’ll see if he maintains. I wonder though if the liberals had bad campaigns under Butts but guys like Scheer ran worse ones.Absolute train wreck of a first week.
If I had to guess, I think Trudeau is missing Gerald Butts.
Twitter flags Liberal campaign video featuring O’Toole as ‘manipulated media’ - National | Globalnews.caTwitter's policy states they would need reason to believe that the video, or the context in which its presented, "are significantly and deceptively altered or manipulated."globalnews.ca
Well this won't play well for the liberals
I also found the age demographic interesting.
Team Blue ahead in the 18 - 49 age group.
Team Red ahead in the 50 - 65+ age group.
Agreed but I think there is more to it.Probably because the Liberal campaign is built on hubris and arrogance.
That margin for error Essentially puts them in a dead tie after 1 week, and if the liberal train keeps going down hill, I do see the hope of a CPC minority developing.OBGD, you touch on it, but I think there are more “Blue Liberal/Martinites/Right-edge-of-Laurentians” than just a few. 1.5 terms of Trudeau/Butts/Telford et Cie. may be enough to dislodge a few. That and the NDP aren’t bleeding out would tend to indicate where the Liberals are losing votes.
338canada.com shows a slow but steady close between the LPC and CPC.
As of 22 Aug, they’re inside of 3 points apart.

As long as O’Toole can show that they are not anti-climate change and leave social issues alone and show that they can be alternate choice to the LPC then yes.
Wasn’t it Napolean who said, “Never interfere with an enemy in the process of destroying themselves!”The best shot the CPC has in this election is to spend the next four weeks smiling and showing everyone how non-threatening and cheerful they are while letting the left-wing parties viciously savage each other. The greatest hatred in Canadian partisan politics isn’t between the Libs and the Tories. It’s on the left, between Liberals and the NDP. That vote split might just work for the Tories if they shut up and stay out of the way.
They might not admit it, but maybe Team Blue took his advice?More Important though is they seem to have moved away from the childish attack adds about Trudeau’s hair or whatever idiotic type ads they were doing.
And as such, not turning middle of the road voters like me off.
I've heard the same thing from federal officials who've had dealings with political staff, too - Team Blue & Team Red'ites, at least in the past, have been way more likely to chat each other up in the middle than Team Red & Team Orange'ites.... The greatest hatred in Canadian partisan politics isn’t between the Libs and the Tories. It’s on the left, between Liberals and the NDP ...
