Noticing an interesting right wing bias in Canadian election coverage.

A whole bunch of articles are going up about the cost in dollar amounts to increase the social safety net and improve healthcare and the upfront cost for said election promises in the NDP platform.


Meanwhile O'Toole wants to create entirely new government departments or possibly new ministries from scratch. Good luck finding a cost analysis of that in the media.

But running the numbers for the Tory promises would not fit the narrative that only the left spends money.
Election time politics, nothing new.

But saying there's a conservative lean to the reporting seems fresh since all the reporting here is heavy liberal bias.

Unless you're talking about campaign ads... In which case see my first sentence.
[@502796,Callmewhatyouwill] Good to know. In Canada the Tories or Conservatives are from the monarchist tradition so basically old money. The Liberals are Liberals in the 19th century meaning which would be "Libertarian" in American. Basically the party of the business class aka new money.

Trudeau is just one of the new flavor of centre right types that knows how to use speeches and virtue signaling to get votes kind of like Obama actually so that is a good comparison.

We still have a left wing party the NDP which is close-ish to the UK Labour Party.

[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] What Do you think of Pierre Trudeau Justin Trudeaus Father
[@105699,JohnnyO] I am not that old. lol. I was 2 when he left office.

As near as I can tell much like his son he was a mixed bag and he was known for being heavy handed at times. Much moreso than Justin.
