Also, Cypress…

The People’s Party of Canada tripled its vote share from the 2019 election, and is facing accusations of being a “spoiler” in a number of Conservative ridings.

Liberal Women and Gender Equality Minister Maryam Monsef's "our brothers, the Taliban" line is just the latest in a string of gaffes in a Liberal campaign without a message. True North's Andrew Lawton says it was clear Monsef's faux appeal to the Taliban was to give the illusion to Canadians that the government is handling the situation – but it is…

Days before the 2021 election campaign is set to begin, the Liberals are banking on Canadians supporting efforts to mandate vaccination in more and more spaces, such as in federally-regulated workplaces, and on planes and trains.

Trudeau spent his political capital on idle virtue sign…
 
Conservative leader Erin O'Toole is doubling down on pandemic fears, saying the "dangerous Delta variant" and looming "fourth wave" make it too risky for an election.
