On Monday Evan Soloman asked his predominantly left leaning audience if Canada should have an election over the budget bill in the Senate, which was originally approved by the elected Liberals in the lower chamber. A whopping 63% of his viewers (all 309 of them) wanted to see an election over the legislation that the elected members already approved, had the Senate kicked it back to the elected chamber. At the end of the day, despite all the Liberal rhetoric, the budget was finally approved by the Senate after an emergency late Monday night vote (voting attendance is not a Liberal strong suit).
If the left thought they had a winner there, they are in bigger trouble than I thought. Let's not forget that if these few clauses were so unpalatable, why didn't the Liberals demand their removal before they allowed the budget to pass? Did Iggy even read the budget before allowing it to pass?
Do you think Canadians should go to an election over the government's budget bill?
Yes 63% (309 votes)
No 34% (164 votes)
Unsure 3% (15 votes)
