How Canada’s political party leaders can win over voters


[ ♪♪♪ ]>>Vassy: WELCOME TO A SPECIAL EDITION TO HAVE THE POWER PANEL. OUR STRATEGISTS ARE ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PARTY LEADERS. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT HOW EACH PARTY IS SELLING ITS LEADER TO THE PUBLIC THIS SUMMER? ASK US ONLINE AT FACEBOOK.COM/CBC POLITICS OR ON YOUTUBE OR OUR TWITTER ACCOUNT. POST YOUR QUESTIONS IN THE COMMENT SECTION. AMANDA ALVARO, TIM POWERS IS HERE WITH ME IN OTTAWA ALONGSIDE KATHLEEN MONK OF EARNSCLIFFE STRATEGY GROUP. IF YOU ARE WATCHING A REPEAT EDITION OF THE SHOW, WE WON’T BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. CHECK OUT THE FULL CONVERSATION ONLINE. I WILL START WITH EACH OF YOU, JUST A QUICK ROUND, WHAT DOES YOUR LEADER HAVE TO DO THIS SUMMER TO ADVANCE THE PARTY’S CAUSE? I WILL START WITH YOU, AMANDA. >>FOR US, I THINK IT’S ALL ABOUT CONNECTION, CONNECTION, CONNECTION. HE NEEDS TO GET INTO AS MANY COMMUNITIES AS POSSIBLE, MEET WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE, INSPIRE THE BASE, GET THE GRASS ROOTS EXCITED FOR AN ELECTION YEAR. THE SUMMER PROVIDES A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. HE’S REALLY GOOD AT THAT STUFF, THE TOWN HALLS, THE 1-ON-1S, THE BIG GROUP SETTINGS. THIS IS A NICE RUNWAY HEADING INTO THE FALL WHERE HE CAN BE IN COMMUNITY TO COMMUNITY TO COMMUNITY ACROSS THE COUNTRY. >>WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO ANDREW SCHEER?>>A GOOD CONVENTION IN HALIFAX IN AUGUST LAUNCHING OFF INTO THE FALL PARLIAMENTARY SESSION. I THINK HE’S GOT TO BRING SOME SENSE OF WHAT HIS VISION OF A CONSERVATIVE PARTY UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP WILL LOOK LIKE. HE HAS DELIBERATELY NOT DONE THAT TO A LARGE DEGREE THUS FAR. HE HAS TO DO SIMILAR TO THE PRIME MINISTER. ALL THREE NEED TO DO THIS. GET OUT INTO COMMUNITIES, BUILD EXCITEMENT AMONG THEIR OWN ACTIVISTS, BEGIN TO CULTIVATE PARTICULARLY IN OPPOSITION CANDIDATES FOR THE FUTURE. AND I THINK HE’S GOT TO GUARD AGAINST GOING AFTER CHEAP OPPOSITION POLITICS AND GOING AFTER THE QUICK HIT. IN THE SUMMER, THAT’S NOT USUALLY A USEFUL THING. THE LAST THING I SAY HE’S GOT TO DO IS PAY ATTENTION TO HIS CAUCUS. THERE WAS A LITTLE BIT OF TENSION, AS YOU KNOW, AS THE SESSION ENDED AROUND MAXIME BERNIER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CAUCUS AND SOME BEING FRUSTRATED WITH HIM. HE WILL WANT TO HOPE THAT OVER THE SUMMER TENSIONS ARE DISSUADED. >>Vassy: KATHLEEN. >>I WILL PICK UP ON THE CAUCUS THING. JAGMEET SINGH HAS TO MANAGE HIS CAUCUS. A BIG CAUCUS RETREAT IN THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER IN B.C. FIND CANDIDATES, RAISE MONEY. WE’RE OVER A YEAR OUT FROM THE NEXT ELECTION. >>Vassy: WE’RE GOING TO KEEP THIS CONVERSATION GOING. EVERYONE WATCHING, PLEASE SEND US IN YOUR QUESTIONS. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A PAUSE. THAT’S IT FOR THIS EDITION OF “POWER & POLITICS.” THE POWER PANEL IS STICKING AROUND. GO ONLINE TO YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK AND TWITTER AND SEND US YOUR QUESTIONS. WE’RE CONTINUING THIS CONVERSATION, OF COURSE, ONLINE. I’M VASSY KAPELOS. THANKS FOR WATCHING.

  1. Well for one, being proud Canadians would be a nice. Second would be, not selling our country out, so we end up … hell hole like islamic Sweden.

  2. There should be a banner under the talking heads that say who they are representing. Saying he isn’t helping

  3. Andrew sheer is the only one who can save Canada from jihadist Trudeau from making Canada trashy and Jagmeet is just to radical

  4. "Democracy" today is NOT the real, original, wonderful ideology it was in the past. Today, democracy has been adulterated into a conglomeration of TRASH. Socialist democracy has NEVER, EVER, worked for the people, only for the political elite. Stop being fooled, friends.

  5. sorry Trudeau is done NOBODY outside BRAMPTON gonna vote for the guy in the hat so bottom line ANDREW SCHEER is a LOCK

  6. Choice between a jihadist enabling groper, a raving lunatic & a dairy union appointee. Time for Harper to return.

  7. The supply management is costing Canadian People hundreds if not thousand of dollars in inflated prices. They have contributed heavenly to Sheer and the liberal parties to preserve the gravy train. This is what Sheer is supporting. Why is he supporting this policy so much. He should explain it to the rest of the Canadian people. To me he is a week leader, who should never of been voted leader. His treatment of Maxime Bernier is atrocious.

    The PC leadership is more central than central-right, as there historical place should be. Need a NEW PC party that assumes the correct place in the politics. Look to Saskatchewan and Alberta. Saskatchewan has a true conservatism party called the Saskatchewan Party, and ALL conservative support has gone to the United Conservative Party in Alberta, this is away from the so called conservative party who has gotten away conservatism, it its place is liberalism that says its conservatism.

  8. CBC hiding Trudeau's groping scandal for months and when they are forced to post a video about it on Youtube they turn off the comment section. CBC needs to be defunded.

  9. Why hasn't Justin Trudeau delivered on vote reform like he platformed on? Perhaps we should have voted NDP I mean if the Liberals want power split between only the strongest two parties and not deliver on their campaign promises then why should the left vote go to a party that pretends to cater to all sides, we need real left solution in this county. I think is the NDA ran with this in their platform again it would certainly help and not hurt them and then if the liberal party pretends to promise this again, then they could turn around and criticize them for not delivering it while in office.

  10. It's clear from the comment section that conservative's are mostly internet trolls. Trudeau has done a decent job. Hyperbole and childish name calling does not make a political argument.

  11. So u have the guy that opens boarders, denies terroism and gropes, a guy who denies that a skeh is a terroist that blew up a plane, too afraid to get a seat in the house of common and a Canadian born guy who has been in politics for over 10 years.
    Ummm their is no debate.

  12. I say absolve the government. Replace it with E-Democracy. We always talk about politicians not doing a good job, maybe it is time to start taking matters into our own hands. We have a representative democracy, it is time to move to direct democracy.

  13. Lowering rent prices in Ottawa for example a small 2 bedroom
    apartments they charge way too much money it should be $500 per month
    and all utilities included. Higher wages Cheaper food prices at
    the supermarket eating pasta bread without vegetables is unhealthy and
    lower the fish prices lower all healthy food prices would mean less
    people in hospital. ,

    Lower tax for the poor 13 percent tax. its tax on everything you

    breathe and you pay tax change the tax to 5 percent tax period,

    or better still only tax once on your employment
    work pay follow England`s way of taxing , only people who own a business
    or are self employed should be filling taxes ,
    and tax price should already be included on all sales items.
    Higher taxes for the rich , the poor people are struggling enough already
    without the burden of paying such high taxes this is truly a disgrace.
    Cheaper transport a lot of people cannot afford a car your driving insurance
    prices is way too high and car prices in Canada even id you buy a
    second hand car is way too expensive . So buses and train fares should
    be made way cheaper . Also every year there should be a slight increase
    in employment wages say 25 cents extra on your hourly rate . The poor
    seem to just get poorer everything in price keeps going up and so the
    homeless increase in numbers they can no longer afford food or rent.
    Also they should be able to provide more free educational courses with
    diploma or certificates to allow both Canadians and immigrants a chance
    for higher education and better employment prospects.

    Also more Youth centres for ages 12 to 18 are needed for the young
    so keeps young entertained and off the streets which means less street crime.
    Also a few free gyms and free pools for low earning people and the unemployed

    this would also help bring adult crime down. You could make a few gyms and

    pools free between certain hours in the day .
    We also need less waiting times in hospitals , maybe its time to
    recognize immigrants qualifications. if an immigrant is a Doctor in a
    foreign country why not test his skills and make him a junior Doctor in
    Canada until he has proven himself. Instead we have immigrant Doctors

    working as can drivers what a waste of talent.
    I personally will be voting for NDP. once I become a Citizen.
    Currently just a Permanent Resident.
    Why not allow Permanent residents the right to vote ?

  14. Gov …. is a bad idea when will people stop listening to there laws and stop letting them lobby and use Canadian tax payer money that they don't own but act like they do and know best. It's a big club and you aint in it (George Calin) on Gov….
