Trudeau Government: Election Day and Campaign Strategy

trudeau government: The weekend event, which kicked off Friday, will feature a number of activities and discussions about campaign strategy and preparedness, according to CTV. Many of the 110 candidates who have been elected in ridings not currently held by Conservatives will attend special victory school campaign training alongside MPs and take part in discussions about how to rally support from Canadians. The MPs and Senators have gathered in part to prepare for the reopening of Parliament next week after the lengthy Christmas break, but it is Oct. 21 -- election day -- that is getting most of their attention. The party is sharpening its message to Canadians to convince them the Conservatives are ready to topple the Trudeau government. She said the Conservatives want Canadians to understand that leader Andrew Scheer and the Conservative Party understand the struggles of ordinary Canadians who don't have an infinite pot of money from which to draw. Our priority is going to be talking about Canadian families and Canadian families' affordability today, the fact that they are feeling the pinch, because that's what we're being told in our ridings, Conservative deputy leader Lisa Raitt told reporters as the retreat was getting underway Friday.
