Toward the vote, electoral campaign fails to take off – Italian

Corriere Canadese  – Toronto, 06/08/2019.    Francesco Veronesi – Employment, immigration, foreign trade and the environment are among the major questions that should characterize the current federal election campaign. Until now, however, the debate has centred on trivial issues like squabbling between the Tories and Liberals over the Canadian Food Guide and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s criticism of Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer’s failure to take part in the Vancouver Pride Parade. In Francesco Veronesi’s opinion, the destiny of a country is not decided by the participation in or boycott of the Pride Parade. Hopefully as the election draws nearer, the political debate will take a leap forward in terms of quality.
