Canada goes to the polls

Canadians go to the polls on 20 September.

According to polling by Abacus Data, concerns over the increasing costs of living ranked high as an issue for all genders and generations, but especially among Generation X and Millennial voters.

Healthcare remains a perennial concern and the pandemic helped highlight how quickly parts of the health system could become strained, as well as the need for better access to mental health services.

And, for the first time, voters are keen to know more about each party's post-pandemic recovery plans.

So almost exactly the same as before the election, giver or take one seat here and there. They do like their minority governments, stops anyone doing anything rash.

In my head I thought Canada used PR.
