NDP Leapfrogs the Liberals and Harpo's Cons Into 1st Place in National Ekos Poll

NDP #1 nationally according to latest Ekos national poll

This morning Reuters published the results of the new survey by polling company Ekos puts the NDP at 29.2 percent support, the Conservatives at 28.6 percent, and the Liberals at 27.6 percent. Rueters said: "Canada's left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP), which stormed to victory in a provincial election in conservative Alberta this month, has vaulted from third to first place in national support...".

Seems 'the times they are a changin' fast and the fearful corporate owned mainstream media doesn't know what's going on in the minds and hearts of Canadians.

Elizabeth May - The Bigot Slayer

Another example is the MSM's immediate and reactionary response to Elizabeth May's speech denouncing the harpo regeme's bigoted attempts to use Omar Khadr in its ongoing fear-mongering campaign. Almost as quickly as the MSM denounced Ms. May the social media and blog-o-sphere erupted in support of her and her appraisal of Omar. For instance, during Evan Solomon's CBC interview of 'Elizabeth the Bigot Slayer' in which he attempted to score his own points against her his social media accounts lit up with Canadians angry at Evan aggressive questioning not Elizabeth's responses.

Further only 10 per cent of respondents to a Power and Politics survey on Monday's episode thought the speech would hurt May politically, while 89 per cent said it would not. That survey with 89 percent of respondents saying this will *not* harm Liz May's political career is a better sanity-check than all those preening, self-annointed PR experts combined. According to the litmus test of CBC comments, a sizable plurality of popular opinion agree that what she said was 100% correct, bad joke or not.

Then there's the fact that not only have harpo's numbers plummeted recently, but so have the Liberals'. Apparently Trudeau's fork tongued support of Bill C-51 - The Secret Police Act - has turned Canadians off from coast to coast to coast.

Polls will be polls, i wouldn't be sticking a fork in harpo just yet, but as one friend said in an email earlier, "This one is a ray of sunshine on an otherwise rainy day here in southwest BC".


Hope Will Triumph Over Fear in Tomorrow's Alberta Elections

Three Hundred Eight.com Canada's #1 poll of polls site, projections as of this morning

Tomorrow's election in Alberta has devolved into Hope vs. Fear, the issues are still relevant but have been eclipsed by the usual right-wing shadow of fear mongering. Usually fear trumps hope, usually the reptilian brain trash cans hope every time, but this time millions of us across Canada hope it doesn't.

As the poll of polls site Three Hundred Eight.com has shown over the last few weeks Rachel Notley and the NDP now lead in every part of Alberta among decided voters. Everyone on all sides is holding their breath because the polls have been terribly wrong recently and nearly 25% are still undecided [or claim to be]. Win or lose though Rachel Notley has opened up the space for Albertans to speak out publicly about another way, a non-corporate ass-kissing way, for Alberta.

Even the Calgary Herald concludes that Rachel isn't anywhere near as scary as Grim Jim and is fear mongering cohorts want Albertans to believe. As Mitchell Anderson' article today 'Albertans Summon Nerve as Election Upset Looms' outlines the Tories are on the brink of defeat because of mis-management of their resources and related government revenues. Hell, even Angie Klein, whose father was Ralph Klein, a PC premier and Calgary mayor, has let it be known she will vote for the NDP.

Everyday a new poll comes out and every day the Notley/NDP's numbers rise. The Orange wave she and the NDP are riding have done it with policies the pundits long claimed would be a death wish: reviewing royalty rates for oil and gas, withdrawing support for the Northern Gateway pipeline, freezing tuition fees, instituting a progressive income tax and increasing corporate taxes among other things.

Mainstreet Technologies', the province's biggest pollster, president Quito Maggi says, “The [PC] dynasty in Alberta will come to an end on Tuesday with the election of an NDP government; what seemed like the unlikeliest outcome is now the only possible outcome.”

How? Well as Doug Broome wrote,  "Alberta has a history of sudden dynastic changes. First the United Farmers of Alberta overthrew the Liberals forever, then Social Credit came from nowhere to ditch the UFA, ruling for decades until 1971 when the current PC dynasty commenced and Social Credit disappeared. Since it became a province in 1905 Alberta has had only three changes in governing party. On Tuesday comes the fourth seismic shift."

Hope will triumph over fear tomorrow in Alberta's election.
