Canada’s election enters final phase, poll shows Trudeau lose popularity first time in 18 months

hello all you freedom loving people welcome to another episode of front page i’m your host scott cameron goulet canada is the second largest country by total land area its advanced economy is the 10th largest in the world and its federal election has entered the final critical period the result of canada’s election will impact the world heavily the ruling liberal party led by justin trudeau has always led in the polls but in the last week it has seen its support drop and has instead been overtaken by the conservatives so what’s causing justin trudeau’s slide in the polls okay let’s get into it according to the latest data released by canadian pollster nanos research on saturday after three days of campaigning last week the liberal party’s voting support had dropped to 30.8 percent while the conservatives support rose to 33 percent for the first time in 18 months the conservatives overtook the ruling liberals canada’s third party the new democratic party or ndp also rose to 20.1 percent in the polls up from 19.4 percent on august 23rd nick nanos founder and chief data scientist at nanos research told ctv on saturday that friday night was very bad for the liberals whose support dropped by more than two percentage points in one day the liberals are certainly under negative pressure now that the conservatives appear to have the upper hand compared to the thai earlier in the week the two major parties the conservatives and the liberals started last week in a neck and neck position with the liberals at 32.5 percent and the conservatives at 31.4 percent a difference of only 1.1 percentage points the gap between trudeau’s approval rating as preferred prime minister and that of conservative leader aaron o’toole continues to narrow as well according to nano’s research o’toole’s approval rating rose to 27.2 percent from 24 from the beginning of the week while trudeau’s approval rating dropped to 29.9 percent from 32.7 percent why did justin trudeau suddenly become the underdog last week’s crisis in afghanistan has certainly affected the image of leaders in western countries on the u.s side the biden administration’s approval ratings have plummeted the latest pew poll found that 42 percent of respondents said the biden administration is doing a poor job of handling the situation in afghanistan a recent echelon insights poll also showed that most people disapproved of the way biden is handling afghanistan some critics are concerned about biden’s ability to do his job an august 24th cnbc poll noted that biden’s average approval rating is 47 percent down seven points from may and the lowest rating since he took office canada’s governing party is no exception canada’s slow and under-resourced evacuation operations in afghanistan have resulted in some afghans who have turned to canada for help not receiving the help they deserve this is one of the reasons for the public’s dissatisfaction with the ruling party national post reporter tyler dawson documented how thousands of canadian allies fell into the hands of the taliban because of mistakes made by canadian officials during the evacuation andrew rusk an afghan interpreter and member of not left behind said canada had four and a half months to do the right thing but only one plane landed on the ground in early august journalist kevin newman reported on a tragic incident during an evacuation from afghanistan canadian officials told a family of afghan allies to put on red clothes and wait for them at a gas station near kabul airport no canadian representative showed up and two days later exhausted and dehydrated the people had to abandon the escape attempt the family consists of about 10 people canada’s minister of foreign affairs mark garneau on sunday august 29 accepted public criticism of the withdrawal and said that no one could have predicted afghanistan falling to the taliban at such a rapid pace garno told ctv news we accept the criticism and we’re trying to deal with the situation in mid-august canadian prime minister justin trudeau called for an early election for september 20th the turmoil in afghanistan was not expected according to trudeau the reason for the early election was that he needed a new mandate to ensure voters approval of his liberal government’s plan to recover from the covet 19 pandemic when trudeau announced the election reuters said that his move was a gamble the article reads trudeau 49 is betting that high vaccination rates against the virus and a post-pandemic economic rebound will help him prolong and strengthen his grip on power at the time polls showed the liberals would win their third consecutive election though they may not gain a majority in the 338 seat house of commons a legger marketing poll released on august 12th showed that nationally the liberals would win 35 of the vote while the main opposition the conservatives would get 30 percent and that the left-leaning ndp would get 19 percent in response to the pandemic the liberals have spent heavily to subsidize businesses and individuals these initiatives will win votes for the ruling party in the short term but the spending also makes canada’s national debt and budget deficit reach record highs which will have a negative impact on the economy in the long run the actual reason for trudeau requesting an early election is that he is trying to avoid the dilemma of facing an economic downturn if they were to have the election in two years rather than now last month the bank of canada made an upbeat forecast for growth prospects for the rest of the year but debt markets are already signaling a possible slowdown in canada’s economic growth the conservatives and new democrats have thus denounced the idea of an early election calling it a power grab the conservatives say if trudeau wins again spending will rise leaving generations of canadians weighed down by the debt canada’s high vaccination rate is an achievement that the trudeau government is proud of newly released data show 71 percent of the country’s eligible population is fully vaccinated but the government’s over promotion of vaccines and even its vaccine passport policies have drawn criticism some conservative mps have described the government’s push for mandatory vaccination as authoritarian as more and more government agencies and private companies announce mandatory vaccination policies opposition from the private sector is growing over the weekend canadian prime minister justin trudeau’s campaign rally in bolton ontario was cancelled for security reasons after protesters demonstrated against it in fact this is not the first time that canadian protesters have protested against measures pushed by the trudeau government since trudeau began his election campaign many have been outraged by his push for mandatory vaccination-related policies on august 14th tens of thousands of people took to downtown montreal to oppose the quebec government’s implementation of a vaccine passport on august 28 hundreds of protesters marched along major streets in toronto chanting no vaccine passports slogans seen at the march included mandatory vaccinations are wrong and trust me to make the best choice for myself on the same day thousands of people gathered again in montreal and marched downtown to protest the government’s upcoming vaccine policy legal experts say that the trudeau government will face legal challenges to mandatory vaccinations lior samphiru a toronto employment lawyer said that employees affected by mandatory vaccinations could take legal action and would have a good chance of winning mandating a medical procedure and treating vaccinated and unvaccinated employees separately may violate human rights in addition to the pandemic canada’s china policy has also become an election issue huawei’s chief financial officer mung won joe’s extradition proceedings has caused tensions between china and canada over the past two years the conservative party has taken a tough stance on china accusing the trudeau government of only paying lip service without substantive action for example it has been slow to sanction china or ban huawei’s participation in 5g construction this criticism is hard for trudeau to refute on the 10th day after mung’s arrest in canada back in december of 2018 beijing arrested two canadians in china michael kovrig and michael spevor the ccp held the two michaels hostage and demanded that the canadian government refuse to extradite hmong to the u.s recently as hmong’s extradition case reached its final stage a chinese court commuted the 15-year sentence of canadian citizen robert schellenberg to a death sentence the chinese court also sentenced michael spevor to 11 years in prison for espionage while trudeau has insisted that he will not interfere with judicial independence he has also protested against the chinese communist party’s hostage diplomacy however it is true that there are no more concrete and substantial countermeasures even canadian embassy personnel in china have been unable to visit the two canadians in detention and it appears that trudeau is powerless to control the situation in dealing with the rogue chinese regime canada and china have deep trade ties but how to strike a balance between china’s treatment of falun gong practitioners and the people of xinjiang tibet and hong kong which are human rights issues that conflict with canadian values is a question politicians must face of course it is not true alone who is to blame for the softness towards the chinese communist party this is not the first time that the ccp has violated canadians at will canada has been passive aggressive in dealing with the ccp’s brutality in the past back in 2014 china suddenly and secretly imprisoned the canadian couple julia and kevin garrett in retaliation for canada’s detention of a chinese tycoon named su bin subin had joined forces with chinese communist hackers to steal military aircraft designs from the pentagon he was extradited from canada to the united states where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years and 10 months in prison in 2006 another canadian citizen hussein a uyghur was arrested in uzbekistan and despite the canadian government’s opposition to his extradition from uzbekistan to china he was extradited back to xinjiang and sentenced to life in prison on false terrorism charges the canadian government has only verbally protested and opposed china’s actions without taking substantial action china has been using hostage diplomacy with impunity in addition the depth of the chinese communist party’s infiltration in canadian society is staggering on june 24 2020 news broke that 19 canadian politicians had written a letter to prime minister justin trudeau requesting that the hmong extradition hearing be shelved they argued that this is the only way to rescue the two michaels detained in china the co-signers included former mps former supreme court justices former foreign ministers and former ambassadors to the u.s among other prominent canadian dignitaries the leverage that the ccp tries to exert over foreign countries knows no bounds it is more important for canadians to have a clear understanding of the ccp than who was elected as the next prime minister in the united states for example anti-communism has become a popular and bipartisan consensus and whoever is president should not stray too far from the issue some people argue that canada is not as strong as the us in both economic and military terms and it is dependent on china as a market so it is more difficult to be tough with the chinese communist party we can look at how australia which is in a similar situation to canada is handling its conflict with the ccp australia is one-fifth the size of canada and has 10 million fewer people than canada its economic status is lesser than that of canada and in its geopolitical environment australia is much closer to china more economically dependent on china and more infiltrated by the ccp however australia was one of the first countries to become more vigilant and to counteract the chinese government’s foreign infiltration in 2018 the australian parliament introduced legislation to punish foreign interference crimes it banned political parties from accepting foreign donations and it required foreign political organizations or entities to be registered in order to lobby the communist party’s united front was directly challenged as a result in april of 2020 australian prime minister scott morrison called on the international community to launch an independent investigation into the source of the covet 19 virus the aussies also banned huawei from participating in the construction of 5g networks on national security grounds back in 2018 unsurprisingly beijing struck back within months of the australian prime minister’s call for the virus origin investigation china began an anti-dumping investigation into australians wine the ccp announced high tariffs on australian wine and restrictions on imports of australian beef barley and coal with obvious political aims but the australians did not give in in july australian trade minister dan teahan said in an interview that australia was prepared to take the economic hit of china’s trade blockade in order to defend its sovereignty tihan said in the end our values are so important to us and we think that there’s something that we have to protect above all else he added if we have to pay an economic price for that that’s something that we are prepared to pay matt pottinger former us deputy national security adviser published an article in the september issue of foreign affairs magazine that was titled beijing’s american hustle how chinese grand strategy exploits u.s power it talks about the essence of china’s economic sanctions against australia partner pointed out ccp leaders gambled that australian businesses suffering from a targeted trade embargo would lobby their government to make political concessions to beijing but the australian people business leaders and exporters included understood that accepting china’s ultimatum would mean submitting to a dangerous new order australian businesses absorbed the losses they weathered the embargo and found new markets australians decided that their sovereignty was more important than lobster sales no doubt confounding those in beijing who had assumed that kambera would put australia’s economic interests ahead of its foundational values australians have not only found new export customers for their lobster and wine even more miraculous iron ore prices on the international market have soared to a decade high this year australia accounts for more than half of global iron ore exports the price of iron ore on the international market was less than one hundred dollars per ton last spring but rose to 188 dollars per ton on april 20th of this year as a result australia’s trade revenue rose in may the price of iron ore in australia rose to further to 233 dollars per ton as demand of iron ore from chinese steel companies was very strong meanwhile exports from brazil the second largest exporter of iron ore were severely hampered by the pandemic and bad weather pottinger’s article pointed out if the contest is based on interests tyranny wins if the contest is based on values democracy wins the example of australia demonstrates this nicely on the contrary hollywood is basically doing the opposite of australia and it is therefore suffering this is another lesson we can learn from yesterday we published an in-depth report on our membership site about hollywood i want to show you the trailer in 2020 the chinese film market topped the global box office with 3.1 billion dollars 35 percent higher than the north american market with 2.2 billion dollars but this huge market has little to do with hollywood with american films accounting for less than 10 percent of the total none of the top 10 films of the chinese box office were produced by hollywood either this is a huge blow to american producers who have been carefully managing the chinese market for the past decade or so why did hollywood movies lose their appeal overnight to answer this question we have to start with the efforts made by hollywood to penetrate the chinese market in this exclusive episode of front page we dive into how hollywood has been playing by the ccp’s rules and how that might just backfire on
