It's 2019, and that means that election campaigns are taking place as much on Twitter as they are in the real world. The Canadian election has already seen a lot of action on social media, and the party leaders are not slowing down. Recently, Jagmeet Singh's Twitter seemed to feature a tweet from the NDP leader that some think might have been a shot at Trudeau's feminist credentials.\nThe tweet in question reads, "Universal, affordable child care. That’s what a feminist Prime Minister would do." The tweet coincides with an announcement by NDP Leader Singh that the party would create 500,000 new childcare spaces throughout the country at a cost of $10 billion.\n"Our goal is to get to universality, which is no cost for families that can’t afford it and low cost, like a $10-a-day cost, for those who can to make it affordable and make it accessible by 2030," Singh said in Vancouver, according to Global News.\nSingh also took the opportunity to attack the Liberals' own undelivered promises on childcare, saying that the party had talked about affordable childcare 26 years ago but still hadn't done anything to provide it.\nIn comparison, the Liberal Party has pledged to create 250,000 new childcare spaces throughout the country, at a cost of roughly $535 million a year.\nUniversal, affordable child care.That’s what a feminist Prime Minister would do. #elxn43— Jagmeet Singh (@theJagmeetSingh) September 30, 2019\nJustin Trudeau stressed that the Liberal plan would put more responsibility in the hands of provinces when it came to childcare. "Provinces have a really important role to play and they need to continue to step up, but the federal government will be there as well," Trudeau said, according to Global News.\nWhether or not the tweet was a direct attack on Trudeau is unclear, but a number of people responded to Singh's assertion that his plan is what a "feminist Prime Minister" would do with skepticism.\nTwitter user @subvoyeur responded, "Because a feminist PM assumes women are the only caretakers of children? That is offensive. Affordable childcare helps the entire family."\n"Why is that feminist? Don’t care about single fathers? How about that’s what a good prime minister would do, instead of trying to play sides," wrote Twitter user @gorillagod356.\nWhy is that feminist? Don’t care about single fathers?

You’re off base Jagmeet.— mari N (@marilynn909) October 1, 2019\nI hope you mean so women can choose to work, and not because child care should be a woman's responsibility.— The Kate Pumpkin 🎃 (@_katerr) October 1, 2019\nGood thing Layton never became PM because as Opposition NDP leader, he & his MPs killed the universal childcare plan of minority Liberal gov’t. REMEMBER THAT @theJagmeetSingh? HUH?— Hon. Marlene Jennings (@marlenejennings) October 1, 2019\nReally? What would an NDP PM do - seems like a lot of Lib bashing going on with no substance from this party to counter the negative. Or is the intent to get the Cons voted in? Sure seems that way— J Nussey 🇨🇦🐾 (@janbear105) October 1, 2019\nBe really careful here.Do you want this to be a competition over which one of you is the better male feminist, with the definition of feminism determined by men?— Kira-Lynn, The Original Gay Mayor of Ottawa (@Cupcakes_n_Rap) September 30, 2019\nHow is that a feminist thing? Last I checked men were parents too. And some even single parents. Affordable childcare affects ALL parents.— Andrea (@abuckley101) October 1, 2019\n1. Affordable for whom?2. Are you trying to say it's a womans job to care for children without govt child care?— David (@RevisitingLife) October 1, 2019\nThere were other Twitter users who saw this as a not-too-subtle attack on Justin Trudeau.\n"Perhaps I'm daft, but I don't get this tweet. It appears to be in support of #JustinTrudeau. Who wouldn't support Universal, affordable child care and our feminist PM? Conceding already?" wrote @GloverLindaJ.\n"I don't understand why you only attack Justin and the Liberals and never point out any of the flaws with Scheer and the Cons," wrote Twitter user @juadog.\nPerhaps I'm daft, but I don't get this tweet.

As of October 1, the NDP is polling at 13.8 percent, according to CBC's Canada Poll Tracker.\nThere are stories everywhere.
