One week out from the election, support for the NDP increased rapidly, and the leader Jagmeet Singh spent another day in the Vancouver campaign.
Some polls put the Liberals and Conservatives in a dead heat, but the late surge in the polls of the NDP leader Jagmeet Singh could make him a key player after the elections. The latest figures from the Nano shows the Liberals and Conservatives were tied at 32 percent support each, with the NDP at 19 percent.
Singh is now walking back his statement Sunday, suggesting he would form a coalition with the Liberals if a minority Conservative government.
“I reject that analysis. I say to Canada, if you want someone who will fight for you, who will ensure pay the richest fair with a wealth tax super that no one else is willing to put forward, we have the courage to do it, to pay for healthcare, to pay pharmacare. ”
suggesting the coalition Sunday apparently in direct response to Justin Trudeau, who sends a message that the Liberal voice is the only way that the center-left voters can avoid making Conservative leader Andrew Scheer prime minister on October 21
Current opinion polls do not point to the winner but suggested the minority government in parliament, which could give Singh’s post-election power is large enough.
The leader of the NDP in Vancouver Monday visited Granville Island to Turkey Trot Run in the morning and met with workers picketing city center hotel in the early afternoon.

For his part, Scheer has moved past Oct. 21 and is painting a portrait of himself inside the Prime Minister’s Office, detailing what the first 100 days of a Conservative government would look like. He’ll take that message to Winnipeg today.

Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is targeting voters in the heart of the struggling manufacturing Ontario, billing rescue mission NAFTA reign as an important victory that the NDP and Conservative rivals will leave
In Ontario, the southwestern border city of Windsor, Trudeau tells supporters that hard-charging NDP would scrap the North American new trade deal if elected. And he described the Conservative Andrew Scheer as the enemy agreements that urge the Liberal government gave in to the demands of US President Donald Trump and the strength of US protectionism.
“We were able to stand up, stand up to Donald Trump and his penalty tariffs on steel and aluminum, we are able to stand up when he wanted to tear trade agreements Windsor, indeed, all Canadians rely on,” he said.
“I would remind people that when we make a deal is a sign of including the protection of women, protection for workers, environmental protection, mention of indigenous peoples of the position of our negotiations throughout the NAFTA, the Conservatives and others, laugh at us, and told us we should not be doing that as part of the NAFTA. ”
A re-elected Liberal government will protect + support our local automotive & manufacturing industries – just as Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau & Min @cafreeland‘s team did during NAFTA re-negotiations. We’re ready to #ChooseForward in Windsor-Essex. #elxn43 @pupatello2019 pic.twitter.com/G4s8NLc30S

Trudeau also says Scheer’s proposed $53 billion in cuts to services would undermine the economic benefits of the new NAFTA, which has yet to be ratified in either the U.S. or Canada.
