Even if the Liberals win a minority, they wouldn't be able to make changes to the EE because it might require new legislative amendments and it is unlikely given a minority government.
They already have made many changes and added new pathways without requiring legislative approval.

That point specifically mentions express entry, TR to PR pathway has nothing to with express entry. They will just give more points to people having Canadian education and work experience in EE which will mean the end of outland immigration. Maybe everyone waiting for ITA should just apply for a study permit if they really want to get PR.
Wouldn’t that bring back the way it was? I believe before, if you had any LMIA job offer you got 200 points, so the cutoffs were impossible for an Outland applicant without job offer.

I'm personally more worried about those possible restrictions they plan to do if a majority government is formed... I'm not talking about covid here

I personally think this is the reason they are not conducting FSW draws, everyone just assumed it’s covid, I don’t think there is an official gov reason that they gave for not conducting them. Canada was always an outlier in terms of giving PR to someone who has not stepped foot in that country. Every other country I can think of will atleast want the person to be in the country before giving a PR, it was bound to change at somepoint, looks like we may be the unlucky ones.

WRT to election predictions I think whatever happens, the new gov will not change policies until atleast a couple of months of forming government.

Yeah, but they won't be launching these programs anytime soon. They promised they'd abolish citizenship fees in the last election of 2019. They didn't do it and again copy-pasted the same promise in their new platform. CBC's poll predictions are kinda right. In the last election, CBC predicted a minority government for the Liberals. This time Éric Grenier is just predicting 138 seats.

Having a LMIA doesn't equal to having Canadian experience. If they go through this route, the most likely outcome is that with the added Canadian degree + experience, the cut off goes to 500+ so that everyone must learn French.

Obviously until travel restrictions are lifted, CEC would get priority in processing. But after restrictions are lifted, I think it'll be the cases that have a stronger chance to be finalized before 2021 that'll be given priority, regardless of CEC or FSW. After all, there's no point wasting time on a CEC app that won't help 2021 targets just for the sake of prioritizing CECs.
Talking about targets, do we know how much they've admitted this year, and how much quota is left to be filled for the year? That info might really help to manage one's expectations.
