  1. This is just a little propaganda to take the heat off a corrupt government PATHETIC

  2. The Vatican has ruled over The Royal Kngdom since it’s inception and her Majesty has ruled over the Canadian Parliament since it’s inception.

  3. Still not covering the Biden corruption scandal? Or Trudeau’s? What is it like being part of the liberal’s “ministry of propaganda”? I see it pays really well.

  5. How about doing your job journalists get to the bottom of the We scandal. Or SNC. Or any other scandal going on right now in the government. Pretty sad almost to the point of pathetic. This is journalism 2020. What a joke. Herman Goering would be so proud of you.
