Interesting poll. I don't think it would play out with an NDP majority. In fact, I still think the PCs would take the majority; however, it shows how much the PCs have fallen. I don't think it particularly means that NDP have risen but, rather, are benefitting from the PCs fall.

Not quite if this belongs here, but.....                                 

Probably safer to just never bring it up again.

For me being fiscally conservative means being fiscally responsible. Keeping deficits low/nil when not in a crisis. Using science and research to fund social programming. Using deficit spending to kee

I'm not surprised to see the anger toward Pallister/PCs, and I'm not really surprised about approval for an NDP party in MB, but I AM surprised about Kinew's general popularity. Didn't think a party with him as a leader would be able to garner enough support to win in the province.....curiouser and curiouser.....

He's become a good politician. Knows when/how to speak. And his roots in the community have helped him in that regard.

The education review will erode some of the PC's rural support.  Ridings like Gimli, Selkirk, and Interlake have gone NDP in the past - there is plenty of animosity swirling right now, as it appears that smaller schools were not even considered.  And if they were, the information is not forthcoming.  

The whole things is looking more and more like just one huge swipe at the metro divisions and the teachers' union.

It's all very interesting. I know that Kinew has a somewhat sordid history (aren't there charges of domestic violence or something of the like?) and didn't think he'd be able to drum up enough support as leader. But good on him if he does. Pallister seems like a complete mess. Truthfully, I follow #MBPoli closer than AB, so it's been very interesting...

So... ****** carlson is angry with us and compared us to Russian gulag. His concern trolling is transparent like saran wrap.

 

 I love the first pic of Trudeau- its shameful for both JT and FC.

So, that I don't have to bother listening to that racist turd, why is the GOP mad at Canada?

We should be proud of that. The only people Carlson like are horrible ones.

Taxes are general revenue. Gas taxes don't pay for roads, all taxes pay for roads. Like, all taxes pay for healthcare. 

EVs don't fuel themselves. You still need to produce the energy. Tax the energy consumed. 

It's a lazy way to fight the Federal government because they didn't like the SCC decision.

This is just the SK provincial gov't being petty while reinforcing its collective ignorance.

At least COVID's under control in the rectangle province. Oh, wait...

Not sure why they wouldn't tax EVs for power consumption in Saskatchewan. A lot of collective ignorance and bias emerging in this thread. Saskatchewan has to buy a large portion of it's electricity because it cannot generate enough of it's own for existing infrastructure nevermind the countless billions that will be needed to upgrade the grid and supply for future EV use. Not sure why the Libs here think it's a swipe by their province to try and recover some of that cost through taxation. Infrastructure will be the biggest impediment to an eventual conversion to electric or preferably hydrogen conversion and it makes sense to start the process of collecting the necessary funds to make that happen.  Typical Liberals....we have a plan but no plan on how to pay for it and when someone does something proactive they are the right wing boogeyman.

Then they ought to tax electric stoves as they compete with natural gas stoves.

Yes but they're not doing this at all. They're pumping a flat tax that does not take into consideration usage. Whereas, if they tax consumption, it would make more sense. 

The infrastructure required will be paid for by those consuming the energy. At no point does Saskpower or Hydro suck up costs that are not passed on to consumers. Again, just a make believe issues.

This is only the whiny conservatives not liking an SCC decision, so they throw a dumb idea out to "stick it to the lefties". 

Typical conservatives, short-term thinking with no plan.

If the Liberals suggested that natural gas was a more efficient and cleaner technology, the alt-right would be pounding at the door for more hydro and coal electricity.
