The 2021 federal election is in one week. In a year like no other, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called Canadians to the polls — was it a good idea? Or will it backfire for the Liberal party?
I called up Nik Nanos to get his thoughts on the upcoming election.
As the head of Nanos Research, Nik has access to a ton of data and polls that accurately reflect what’s happening in Canada right now.
Our conversation was fascinating.
First, let’s find out who Nik thinks will win the election:
What will the new government look like? What does the future hold for Justin Trudeau?
What’s the status of the Canadian economy? How does the election affect consumer confidence?
What about Nik’s second most likely prediction for the election? What will happen if that party gets elected?
Should the federal government’s stimulus package end in October, or should it continue? Can Canadians continue to pay the bills if not?
How do new COVID-19 policies affect the nation? Do most Canadians support a vaccine passport?
This election campaign has seen some of the most outspoken and extreme protests in recent Canadian political history. What does this say about the state of our nation?
We wrapped up by chatting about how Canadians are really feeling right now. What has been the impact of the past 18 months? And what does the future hold for us all?
Many thanks to Nik for taking the time to chat with me and shed some much-needed light on a complicated and thought-provoking moment in Canadian history. I think we’ll remember this time for many years to come.
Wishing you all the best,
