Opinion polls are looking grim for Donald Trump, with fewer than five months before the election. The mainstream corporate media is doing exactly what they did in 2016 and declaring Trump the inevitable loser. Left-wing blogs like Salon and Alternet are declaring Trump's loss to be potentially historic in its gravity, but we know that cannot be the full truth. As a matter of fact, an analysis of 2016 opinion polls happens to show Donald Trump polling exactly where he is now, weeks before the 2016 election.

The anarchist thugs who are currently defacing and tearing down statues of George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, Catholic missionaries and Gandhi are not people we should be using as role models. None of those people are doing anything virtuous or righteous. However, this whole thing started with a very different set of goals. In every culture around the world, statues and monuments are erected to honour certain people and deities.

Unfortunately, Stockwell Day has become the latest victim of cancel culture. His appearance on CBC’s Power & Politics defending Canada from accusations of systemic racism seems to have been the bait that finally tripped the trap.

Just as the leaves were starting to pop on the trees and the sunshine was getting longer and brighter after a typically long, cold Canadian winter, Hollywood would begin to release blockbuster after blockbuster filled with adventure, spectacle, laughs, scares and romance. As a kid growing up in the '80s, I had a front seat to the burgeoning summer movie season. It was a new concept that Jaws in 1975 had created, so the kinks weren’t totally worked out yet.

There is an unspoken feeling about conservatism in Canada. A quiet collective knowledge that something is not quite right about the sensibility and it does not quite represent itself well. Think of it as a haze that blinds you just enough to identify conservatism, but still leaves you doubtful, still to be persuaded it could be something else.

As we edge closer to a possible election call, Justin Trudeau's fate could be decided by Canada's post-Coronavirus employment numbers. Many are predicting Trudeau will make the call this fall, possibly as soon as late September, giving Canadians an election date somewhere in and around mid November. If current polls are accurate, Trudeau's handling of the pandemic is being rated highly by most Canadians and the Liberal Party is polling in majority territory. However, it's tough to beat solid and consistent historical trends.
