So many polls, such little consensus: With at least a dozen polls released since the start of summer all seeming to send a different message about the electorate's views, it can be overwhelming. Cue Philippe J. Fournier, founder of poll aggregator 338Canada, who cautions against getting caught up in the findings of any single poll: "We compile the results, keep our eyes on the big picture, and we don't let one single poll set the narrative." (Maclean's)

Hashtag inflation: On Tuesday it seemed like all of Canada was tweeting #TrudeauMustGo, with the hashtag appearing on Twitter's trending list for much of the day. But analysis by the National Observer found that a lot of those accounts joining in the anti-Trudeau tweetfest had only been set up days earlier, and some were posting messages at an un-human rate of 200 to 300 a day.

Settled: The federal government will pay $900 million to settle several class-action lawsuits that claimed the Canadian military was "poisoned by a discriminatory and sexualized culture." It's expected that tens of thousands of victims who allege they experienced sexual misconduct will file claims in the settlement. (Global News)
