Poilievre may not have the chops to take down Trudeau
Canadians don’t seem to think that being a far-right attack-dog confers the credentials to be prime minister.
It's on: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre. Even with painful inflation, and a PM with obvious baggage after three terms in power, Canadians in the Nanos Research poll gave Trudeau a huge lead over Poilievre. If only Trudeau and Poilievre appeared on the ballot, 46 per cent of respondents would choose Trudeau as PM and just 30 per cent the new Conservative leader, writes Michael Harris.
