    1. Conservatives are projected to pick up 2 seats to bring their total to 137. Scheer supports a big immigration quota and recently had a reporter arrested and handcuffed for being on the sidewalk outside one of his events and trying to ask questions. Canada has no Bill of Rights. It takes 170 seats to have an outright majority of the 338 total seats.

    2. Liberals are projected to lose 27 seats dropping their total to 134. Justin Trudeau got into a dispute with Canadian aborogines and fired an Attorney General, the highest ranking aborogine ever. He has sex scandals. His trip to India saw him dressing himself and his wife and two children in Bollywood style clothing while the Indian government was dressed in business suits. He managed to bring in a person considered a terrorist in India and had to sent him out of the country. Then he said that he had been racist to be dressed in blackface three times in the past. He has refused to let reporters into his events who are not accredited. The Canadian federal government under Trudeau began to issue certification credentials to reporters so that he could control the press, which is mostly state-owned like our PBS. He wants to stop producing oil, mostly to cause a depression in oil-drilling areas which all oppose him.

    3. Bloc Quebecois is expected to pick up 16 seat to bring their total to 33. They are led by Yves-Francois Blanchet, who is opposed to open borders and more immigrants and who will answers questions from the conservative reporters but who does not want to make a deal with anyone to form a government at this time.

    4. New Democrats are projected to win 10 new seats to bring their total up to 29. Their leader is Jagmeet Singh, a hard-core leftist, even to the left of Trudeau. He hopes that Trump will be impeached.

    5. The Greens are expected to lose a seat to total 3. The People's Party and Independents are expected to win 1 seat each. The Greens are lead by Elizabeth May, who seems to be a real nut.

    Trudeau got a shot in the arm today by the endorsement of Obama for his re-election.

    Obama said, "I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President. He's a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term."

    Canadian Rebel Media is outlining four possible scenarios for an outcome for the Canadian federal elections on Monday, October 21.

    A. An outright win by Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Party. Trudeau has been barnstorming Canada with two jet airplanes--one for him and one for his luggage. The endorsement by Obama has to help him a lot because Canadians like Obama.

    B. A minority win by Trudeau and a likely coalition government, possibly with the socialist party called the New Democrats headed by the charismatic Jagmeet Singh.

    C. A minority win by the Conservative Party headed by Andrew Scheer, who is sort of a liberal Republican type of conservative, who wants high immigration and government control of the press.

    D. A majority win by the Conservatives, an upset.

    Right now it is considered too close to call as the polls show a deadlock. I think that Trudeau has overcome his many scandals and will be able to make a deal with the New Democrats. Canadians seem to think that Trudeau is like his father and seem to want the dynasty to go on. Trudeau has already killed any new pipeline construction and has said that he will shut down oil production in Alberta. It is kinda like the way California shut down electricity in northern California. If you have an uncharged electric car and there is a wildfire, you will not be able to get out of danger. Alberta will sink into a depression. Canadians say that they forgive Trudeau because he was young when he did these bad things.

    Sheesh, look at the polls on this, and, unlike most American federal elections, they are highly accurate up there. They have it as a dead heat.

    If I had to guess what goes down on Monday, I'd pick B - Justine squeaks by but the LP loses so many seats, it is forced to form a coalition government but Trudeau could still be PM in that scenario. If he does lose, it will mark the first time since the 1930s that a first-term PM with a majority gets booted. Too far south of the border but it doesn't seem like a big upset is in the air, even in western Canada.

    Obama's endorsement of Jussie is just to get the turnout up in Montreal and Toronto, as is the swipe on "populism". Both of the major candidates have optics problems - Scheer was a dual citizen that filed taxes here and even registered for the USSS, but never mentioned this, a lie by omission, and Trudeau has the corruption problem, the blackface problem, the brownface problem, and he's a known entity that has let down both the left (deficit is huge) and the right (did the carbon tax thing, still jets off every holiday). I know he is weakened from where he was in 2015, but the Canucks may squeak him by for the globalist Trudeau is to handle Trump. 75% of all exports is no small matter.

    Very good & well-written post! Thank you!

    I myself think that Canada would like some global warming so I don"t know why Greta went to Edmonton, Alberta, in a borrowed Tesla. Her Dad threatened to call the police when asked if they were unregistered foreign agents trying to interfere in an election. They won't say who is paying for their trip to Canada.

    I guess it is a Liberal motto from Pierre to forget the west--Liberals win in the east of Canada. The Liberals will not develop the oil in oil rich Alberta.

    Thank you. Yes, Scoldilocks was in Alberta. Justin doubled-down on the pipeline, so now he's too far to the right for Greta ,despite his promise to plant two billion new trees. He couldn't get her endorsement but she acted a lot less bratty when they met than when she saw Trump. I'm sure even the Canadians will be glad to get rid of this little girl and I agree with the Albertan premier here:

    Do you think that Trudeau is just plain desperate to meet with a foreign child, with so many medical problems, about climate change two days before a federal election?

    To me it looks like another Bollywood stunt. Canada is much better off than Sweden in every measurement so why spend time and campaign money on this child politican with no future other than a mental hospital caused by the abuse of her parents?

    Canadian Liberals seem to be in a bad mood, or else they are just always mean people, but few of them would answer questions from conservative Rebel Media at a Liberal rally Friday in Vaughn, Ontario. White Liberals refused to talk to the Rebel News reporter David Menzies, an educated journalist and life-long reporter who has two hip replacements. Two or three of them bumped into him on purpose and then refused to apologize. It could be that is just the way Liberals treat each other. I tend to agree with Trudeau supporters that the blackface thing doesn't amount to much but Trudeau himself said that it was racist, which was over the top in my opinion. Mostly, the three examples of Trudeau blackface are just gauche as he really cannot sing and dance much better than a high schooler.

    I think their meeting was just plain ridiculous:

    https://nationalpost.com/news/canad...ate-strike-while-protests-erupt-cross-country

    Justin is obviously not doing enough, according to Little Miss Sunshine. Trudeau is just beyond politically correct, there was no way he'd treat this leftist kid the way Trump treated her, and why would he even want some foreigner's endorsement when she can't even vote in her own country? You have to remember that there is the New Democratic Party in Canada, and they are to the left of Jussie's Liberal Party - that's who Greta probably would have wanted out of all.

    Tomorrow will tell, the polls are still razor-thin close:

    Bloomberg - Are you a robot?

    with the MoE, it's a true toss-up but if you add the Liberal and the NDP you could get a working majority for the left. Of course, it could go the other way and that Quebec Party could further jam up the works.

    Trudeau escaped with only slight losses. The liberals won 156 seats yesterday. They previously had 177 and 170 is a majority.

    The Conservatives only won 122 although they had 95 before. The Conservatives won the popular vote by a point or two.

    Trudeau will need 14 votes from the left to pass legislation but that should not be an obstacle. His personal scandals did not seem to matter to his party.

    Canada does not have a Bill of Rights and the largest media outlet by far is government such as our PBS, and Trudeau rules the press with an iron fist. He travels with two planes and Liberal rallies are closed events for only the party faithful. They sell a lot of stuff to the USA. They have socialized medicine and a mediocre system.
