There are nods in the Conservative campaign to security and values, but principally, there is a commitment to discount.
According to the latest data, the Canadian economy continues to be the most-discussed election issue on Facebook, as it has been since the beginning of this campaign. He is suing two Conservative ministers over his denial of citizenship.
Stephen Harper has no public events on his calendar and will instead focus on preparation for the debate hosted by the TVA network.
Mulcair has consistently denied this week that his support in Quebec is slipping – despite a few polls that suggest otherwise – saying the NDP has never enjoyed more strength in the province than it does now.

At least he admits it. And besides, don’t we always? For most of us, style has played a greater role than substance in shaping our opinions. Efficiency is a lovely, if sometimes unrealistically applied, idea.
