“Canadians might well be interested to learn that the NDP’s proposed 1 per cent tax on wealth-holdings worth more than $10 million would only affect the wealthiest 75,000 families, but would raise $17 billion a year, according to Alex Hemingway, an economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.”
This was the one bright spot in the NDP platform/campaign for me, but I found it odd that their advertising/campaign didn't offer a deeper explanation on it. Much of the rest of their campaign I found uninspiring or problematic and the constant attack on Trudeau was annoying.
One thing that I'd like to see is polling data that states why people voted the way they did. I'd guess that 60% or more of people were base voters that vote a specific party no matter what, but knowing if people voted on key issues would be interesting. Primarily I'm curious if people voted based on who they thought has the best plan on climate action and if that aligned with what the experts thought was the best plan.
