Hey, we have an election too.

On Thursday, the Liberals pledged to invest in the country’s long-term care system after the sector was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking in Victoria on Thursday, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau announced that his party would spend $9-billion over five years for seniors in assisted care centres and those living alone. Much of the funding would go toward establishing a minimum $25 per hour wage for personal support workers, as well as $500-million to help train up to 50,000 new support workers.

“The conditions of work in long-term care become the conditions of care for our seniors,” Mr. Trudeau said.

Since health care is under provincial jurisdiction, these promises rely heavily on mostly Conservative premiers supporting the federal government’s plans. Mr. Trudeau said his party wants to work together with provinces on this issue.

Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-François Blanchet is also speaking about health care today during campaign stops in Gatineau and Lachute, and talked about how the pandemic has revealed that federal funding is falling behind rising health care costs.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh also addressed health care this morning during a stop in Edmonton. “We believe in expanding health care in general, and that’s why we’re talking about bringing long-term care into the public system,” he said, referencing the party’s plan to put an end to private, for-profit long-term care.

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole focused on the issue of housing affordability today in Ottawa. He spoke about the party’s plan to build one million homes in the next three years and “stop foreign money from pushing prices out of reach.”

Canadian businesses land on return-to-work vaccine decisions
After months of uncertainty, Canada’s five largest banks are now telling employees they will need to be fully vaccinated to return to the office, the Globe’s James Bradshaw reports. Toronto-Dominion Bank and Bank of Montreal will also offer rapid testing to vaccine-hesitant employees. Meanwhile, Scotiabank employees will soon receive a confidential survey asking them to disclose their vaccination status.
These announcements came hours before Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s top doctor, recommended employers require unvaccinated employees to get medical exemptions after making vaccination mandatory for city staff and Toronto Transit Commission employees.
The U.S. government also also said it would extend non-essential border restrictions to Canada and Mexico by more than a month, to Sept. 21

Day 18
The Liberal Party released a fully costed campaign platform detailing how a re-elected government would spend an additional $78-billion over five years while targeting corporations and the wealthy for $25-billion in tax hikes. The platform includes a minimum 15-per-cent tax on high earners so that deductions and tax credits can’t reduce their tax obligations below that threshold.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is also facing NDP and Conservative accusations of a pattern of turning a blind eye when it comes to misconduct complaints, as Trudeau defended for a second day a candidate who is facing several allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

Meanwhile, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole is promising to scrap the Liberal government’s infrastructure bank and ensure every Canadian has high-speed internet by 2025. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is campaigning today in Quebec where the party is hoping to boost its seat count after losing seats in the province in 2019.

Erin O'Toole's done, word is Doug Ford wants to jump to Federal Politics, as he knows he's done provincially - part of the reason he's letting Christine Elliot run the show.

That, or he might settle for running for mayor of Toronto again.

One can only hope, because he will bomb at those levels too.

I think the knives should be out for O'Toole, but unless Kenney or DoFo (or Mackay) are willing to move fast, it won't happen until the next election somewhere in the next 18-24 months.
 
I think Kenney is too tied up to do anything - he's still facing the press more often than Doug is and I don't think his cabinet are as willing to take a bullet for him like Doug's cohorts are.

Doug I'm thinking will be the one to mount a campaign, hoping that people forget how shitty a job he's doing here. I think he knows that his chances of a mayoral race win are a lot slimmer than a federal run.
