Political roundup: Deepening polarization in Canada, Hamilton Mayoralty race

Two Polls published by the National Post point to deepening political polarization in Canada. A Leger Poll shows a high level of discontent with Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister. Only seven percent strongly approve of his performance compared to 32 percent who strongly disapprove. When “somewhat approve “and “somewhat disapprove” were added to the figures, Trudeau’s negatives outnumber positives by 15 percent.

In the same edition of the National Post, a second Leger Poll showed Pierre Poilievre way out in front in the Conservative leadership race at 50 percent versus 14 percent for Jean Charest. That poll surveyed Conservative voters only.

In the weekly political round-up on the Bill Kelly Show, Bay Observer publisher John Best discussed the two polls, but the conversation began with a look at the local mayoralty race.
