MONTREAL—Canada's two main parties may be tied in voting intentions at the national level, but the pre-election season has so far been kinder to Justin Trudeau's Liberals than to Andrew Scheer's Conservatives.

The subtext of the national polls is that the first are doing better than the numbers suggest while the second are running in place.

Much of the credit for the restoring of a modest Liberal edge is owed not so much to the strategic genius of the incumbents as to some chronic weaknesses of their main rivals.
