    Mate,

    None of them excite me either. But all of them scumbags? I don't think Elizabeth May is a "scumbag". Nor do I think Jameet Singh is a "scumbag". I do not think that Andrew Scheer is a "scumbag".

    True that none of them inspire that "hell yeah" you would hope. But "scumbag"?

    No.

    I could not disagree with Jameet Singh more if I tried. I do not believe he is a scumbag. LOL!

    Now, Trudeau? Yes. I believe he is a scumbag. And has proven it.

    “The authority of the prime minister and his office was used to circumvent, undermine and ultimately attempt to discredit the decision of the director of public prosecutions as well as the authority of Ms. Wilson-Raybould as the Crown’s chief law officer.” -Ethics Commissioner

    Trudeau should resign. In a previous age he would have had to because his own party would have demanded it. That previous age is not so long ago.

    He is unfit to be PM. If he wins again, Canada will have to get through the worst national unity crisis in its history, and I'm not sure it will.

    Re: The Justin Trudeau Report Card


    I think anyone can take some information and spin it to their benefit.
    For example, golden boy Andrew Scheer... his Saskatchewan riding funneled money into the Guelph riding to support them at a time that they were involved in the famous, illegal Robocalls for the 2011 election. If the attempts at voter suppression weren't enough, Scheer (as speaker of the house) shut down discussion from opposing parties about the Robocalls in the House. Clearly trying to hide the truth, not only about his involvement, but the illegal activity of his party to manipulate election results.


    Scheer is Harper 2.0 and judging by his twitter feed, a Trump wannabe with all the lies and manipulations of the truth - all attack, no plan.

    So when you peel back all the mud slinging and name calling, all you are left with is party policy to make decisions on. While I wish things were better for me, my life is pretty good. As a result, I take a look at my neighbours; my fellow Canadians that are hurting, and I ask which party would help them (all) Canadians the most. It is definitely not the Cons and Andrew Scheer in my opinion.

    If so then I'm okay with that because Harper, while imperfect, was far superior to selfie-boy. Neither Chretien nor Harper did anything half as bad as what Trudeau did with Lavscam.

    That's your opinion you're entitled to it I think trying to rig the results of an election with robocalls is worse than trying to pressure the AG to give a DPA but like I said you're entitled to your opinion

    Rig an election? So all you have to do is bombard people with calls and you win? Hell, why didn't anyone know this before??

    Yes, what Trudeau did was far, FAR worse. Not even close. And again...Del Mastro resigned.

    While Del Mastro was criminally charged in Ontario courts, Trudeau paid (up to) a $500 fine, but we are all entitled to look at it for what it is in our opinion. I tend to see it differently (one broke the law, another broke a rule) but hey whatevs... we all get a vote in the end. Maybe more will come of this somewhere down the road, but I doubt it.

    None of it was tied back directly to Chretien, though. And people went to jail for it.

    I feel far more threatened by the PM politically interfering in criminal prosecutions than I am over spending scandals or robocalls. One goes down a far worse road than the others.

    Not only did the ethics commissioner say that what Trudeau did was wrong, but that the PMO withheld evidence, which is obstruction of justice.

    Further to that, Trudeau wheeled out the first indigenous AG in our country's history (and a woman) to great woke fanfare only to fire her and do everything he could to besmirch her reputation after the fact because she upheld the rule of law.

    He ought to resign. He is simply the worst PM of my lifetime.

    Re: The Justin Trudeau Report Card

    Justin Trudeau has been PM for 4 years. Using "but Haaaarper!!!" as the defense for Trudeau is a fair bit stale and lame at this point. A full-on cop-out, actually.

    And if Scheer is Harper 2.0 then we can expect no attacks on abortion rights or the LGBTQ community.
