UPDATED | Election day 2021: Liberals ahead as first results trickle in

OPINION | Don Martin: It's all about him -- and that's why Trudeau is in trouble

Don Martin: The Liberal and Conservative campaigns limp out of the starting gate

The Sept. 20 federal election is not necessary, has no coherent rationale to justify Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s $500-million bid for a majority mandate and, worst of all, puts the federal government on hold at the precise moment when a fourth COVID-19 wave will hit the youngest the hardest, Don Martin writes in his exclusive column for CTVNews.ca.
