    • Doug Ford’s spring star is falling fast. Hurry up with lockdowns, slow down with vaccines. Shut everything down and tazer 10 year olds for skating…not what we voted for here in Ontario. Some Provinces are making better progress.

  2. What he really means is none of these ministers bring anything to the table.

  3. Politicians need to just answer the questions. That’s what they get paid for, from our tax dollars, we employ them.

    Our PM is a part time drama teacher, that is how low the bar is for being a government minister.

    • What have you done genius? By all means run and win and govern smart guy. His dad was PM that’s some experience surely. But you would do better right? Go on then.

    • @Todd Rocket These Conservatives still haven’t learned they have been saying Trudeau is dumb while he beat Harper and Scheer, OToole is next to go.

  5. This guy belong in jail!

  6. The more I see this guy perform, the more obvious it is he is NOT cut out for leadership.

    Health Minister !! How did you obtain your Doctorate?, thru the thesis and theory exams or by actually administering to REAL medical patients?

  8. Not really a fan of Pallister but the reporter did ask why one is better than the other. Asking “Why the change ?” would have been a better way to phrase the question.

    Our governments (all levels) are the definition of insanity…they keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome…INSANE.

  11. The arrogance of this elitist nearly gave me a stroke.

    You cant be successful when its a sham and there’s no success to made.

  14. I love that this is considered “tense” in Canadian politics lol.. I don’t love that they “gin up” the title.

  15. did he cry again ?

  16. Notice how he didn’t answer why he needed he felt Friesen needed to be switched

  17. 0:52-0:55 Emperor Palpatine actually tries to escape from his body

  18. Asking what a different minister brings to the table is like asking someone which of their children they love more? Okay…

  19. I’m just told what to say ….whatever they write me . FO

  20. Their drug prescription is being tweaked. Off scopolamine and onto LSD. They are getting more agitated & paranoid.
