The future of the Liberal Party—without Justin Trudeau

Paul Wells: The biggest question in Canadian politics in 2022 is whether Trudeau will still be PM when the year is done. The Grits may be forced to consider life after him—and what they even stand for without him.

The kinds of mistakes winning campaigns don’t make

Andrew MacDougall: Misdirected or misfiring Liberal attacks are quickly becoming a thing in this unnecessary election, and it does not suit the party or the PM

How Justin Trudeau held on: The story of a gruelling, messy campaign

The path to a Liberal minority was paved with low points and sloppy moments. In this election, there were no undiluted victories.

How the Liberals can appeal to young people this election

Max Fawcett: A national tax on homes is actually a good idea, especially for young people who make up the largest voting group in 2019

The history of blackface that Justin Trudeau is contending with

Andray Domise: It isn’t just mockery or having fun at the expense of offended minorities. It is the continuance of a white supremacist tradition.

Why the Liberals and Netflix don’t mix

Andrew MacDougall: The Liberals leaned in on Justin Trudeau’s appearance on the ‘Patriot Act.’ But what was supposed to be a push for ‘celebrity cool’ turned into one glorious disaster.

Liberals and Conservatives are neck and neck

Andrew MacDougall: The deck has been stacked. All the more reason for Conservatives to stick to their campaign script—helping ordinary Canadians get ahead.

Why the Liberals can’t get any political buzz out of legal weed

Legalization has brought jobs by the hundred to places that desperately need them. Yet many of those ridings are poised to vote Conservative.

For the Liberal Party of Canada, politics is the art of procrastination

Andray Domise: For this party, politics is the aesthetics of hope, the promise of technocracy to solve our problems and the utter incapability of mustering the power to deliver on either.
