CA pastor: So who decides when deadly force is 'necessary'?
A conservative black activist is concerned that a controversial new bill imposing further restrictions on police use of force places law enforcement officers in greater danger.
Canada’s liberal leaders are ruling parliament in the divided country and a conservative leader predicts that will continue until a voting bloc is broken up.
Conservatives have been leading in polling since February, owing to a scandal that leads directly to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (pictured at left), but that advantage has shrunk just in recent weeks and his numbers are back up.
Dr. Charles McVety, president of the Institute for Canadian Values, tells OneNewsNow the biggest obstacle for Canada's conservatives remains the liberal-leaning province of Quebec, the second-largest behind Ontario with approximately 8.1 million people.
In the House of Commons, with a total of 330 parliamentary seats, liberal Quebec occupies nearly one-quarter of the seats,
“And they vote,” McVety says, “almost exclusively one direction.”
With a quarter of the seats, he explains, it’s not difficult to form a “minority” government with 35 percent of the seats or a “majority” government with 50 percent of them.
Meanwhile, national elections are coming in October and tracking polls compiled by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation show Conservatives and Liberals are almost neck and neck. Conservatives lead substantially in Alberta and the Prairie provinces while the Liberals lead in British Columbia, the Maritimes --- and Quebec. They have a slight lead in Ontario.
Compared to the political fighting in the U.S., McVety says the Quebec factor is far tougher for Conservatives to overcome than Republicans in the United States working against electoral voters in New York state and California.
