With thanks to the NDP, Canadians have dodged a “snap” election in 2020 — so far. A vote of confidence from the left may ultimately allow the Liberals to evade accountability for potentially mismanaged pandemic spending, but it’s the Conservatives who should be relieved. While the Bloc and the CPC were unable to secure additional documentation in the WE Charity scandal, an immediate election may have provided a worse fate. Given Justin Trudeau’s current polling approval, post-pandemic provincial election trends, and Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole’s relative anonymity, a fall election would likely not end well for those who seek a modern, conservative government at the helm. Most conservatives would agree, the only thing worse than a Liberal minority not held to account, is a Liberal majority of the same.
