      And take Quebec with them. Trudeau’s Central Canadian progressive talking points are turning on him.

  4. I’M ASHAMED OF TRUDEAU!! Capitulating to this BS!!

  5. Two face is trying .

  6. So Covid 19 is taking a break because Snowflakes need to go Protest?

    Just like that in a matter of a few days Physical Distancing was dropped.

    If these large scale Protests are allowed then I want my Province to reopen Restaurants, Bars, Gyms, Shopping Malls and Movie Theaters as of next Week

    Defund the Police – Have we gone crazy in this country. Why do you interview such instigators of hate.

  10. It’ll just create more violence

  11. This hostility will just endanger the police and soon no one will want to do policing anymore

    “Empty symbolic gesture” can refer to sockboys whole career as PM. Captain of social justice, virtue signalling and stealing Canadian’s money.

    • Stealing Canadians money ?
      I recall conservative Leader Scheer saying the opposite a few weeks ago accusing Canadians of stealing government money .
      How quickly we forget !!
