As we head into the last week of the campaign, the pollsters tell us that Canadians can't decide between a fresh or frozen bird — Andrew Scheer or Justin Trudeau.

What they all seem to agree on is that the country should be prepared for a photo finish on Oct. 21. In the end, it will come down to a statistical coin toss between the mainstream political parties who have always run the ship of state since Confederation — the Liberals and Conservatives.

I'm here to argue that the pollsters aren't reading the chessboard very well. There is no way for Scheer and the Conservatives to win this election, if winning means governing. Barring an asteroid hitting the Liberal campaign, the winner of the election will be Trudeau. There is my limb, and now I will climb out on it for the explanation.
