  1. She either doesn’t know or is unwilling to even say a ballpark number. Both don’t inspire much confidence.

  2. Another alternative truth from the Trudeau regime. From an individual who refuses to speak to her constituents, but always makes time to read prepared talking point from her master.

  3. and then we will sell our national infrastructure or the rights to operate these infastructure to China, like Sri Lanka’s port. The script is already written by China; TURDeau is the one who executes it.

  4. It only took me 2:11 to realize she had no intention of answering the question. Transparency?????

    These decisions belong in Parliament with the 338 elected members. Stop the dictator style press releases and OPEN PARLIAMENT!

  6. So typical.

  7. Arrogant , incompetent and devious . Just like the clown who appointed her .

    You mean the next 15 or so governments have the firepower. We will be paying for this long after Justin is a note in the history books.

  9. Only a Liberal voter understands what this clueless Minister is talking about..

    Nobody is in favor of fraud, except maybe sncl investigation was stopped because the government said so. Just a reminder.

    Brochure lecture.

  15. Answer the Question. This is how a dictatorship is run. No questions answered. No parliament. No accountability.

  16. If you asked a liberal what day it was on Monday, they would tell you that tomorrow might be tuesday, and yesterday might have been sunday, but all days are equal.

  17. Evan asks for the time, Melanie tells him how she built a clock.

    She could screw things up in both official languages

  19. we must put a logging chain around the ankles of all liberal Cabinet Ministers before they cut and run.
