Re: “A fall federal election is ‘a real possibility,’ and a ‘sweet spot’ for Liberals to win a majority, say pollsters,” (The Hill Times, June 1). A snap election in September would be “an ideal time to convert a minority government into a majority?” Your article says the current Liberal support of 41 per cent would give them a false majority. However, an Ekos poll released May 12 finds 73 per cent of us think we are on the cusp of a broad transformation of society, probably more socially focused, stressing health and well-being, while only 12 per cent approve of U.S. President Donald Trump’s one-party government. That Canadian sense of hope and optimism would not encourage voters to want a one-party government.
