Results for - Cost Of Living Could Shape Canada's Election
Canadians have a message for politicians appearing on their front stoops ahead of Canada’s upcoming national election in October. The issue of affordability could shape the Oct. 21 election, according to pollsters, and both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and the rival Conservatives plan to make easing household expenses a priority. Canadian household debt is at record levels, while the savings rate has fallen to nearly its lowest level in 14 years. A recent Abacus Data poll found 56 per cent of Canadians put cost-of-living as one of their top five issues heading into the vote.
