    BS. The NDP can’t afford an election. This is just self-preservation.

  2. Voting for Canadians to help Trudeau cover-up the scandal? Ok bud

      @kanuck 13 Name one other Government that has had multiple ethics breaches and multiple resignations over multiple breaches. Go on name ONE…. Do not need to post a link for common sense. But you must a liberal so common sense is a foreign concept to you. it does, however, explain why you support the Liberals in the first place..

      @Clot-in-Eye Joe Uh NO, the money he used he was entitled to as per CPC rules. HE chose to pay it back. As it was a perk NOT entitled to other members. Which far more than ANY liberal has done with taxpayers STILL on the hook for the money they used and were not entitled to.
      Effing useless liberals ignore the gross rampant corruption in their party. Eff you lot are useless hypocrites.

      @Clot-in-Eye Joe you must not pay taxes, any sensible person would be angry at any politician for corruption regardless of political affiliation, the fact that you blindly dont care about the we scandal because of other partys past corruption doesnt do anything to solve the issue, you would think you would want to get to the bottom of this liberal or not. if hes dirty do something about it, if not let it be put to rest, me personally think every politician in canada fills there pockets illegally with tax payers dollars, they are are guilty in my eyes, the average annual income for a canadian in 30-40k hardly live able meanwhile politicians have everything paid for by tax payers amd make more than the average person in there country that they are supposed to be “leading”. i dont see why a politician needs to make more than 70k a year. they should pay for there own parking in the city but they dont tax payers do. probably have fuel cards paid for by tax payers. i know single moms that can balance the federal budget better than these politicians its a disgrace. and canadians like you and others turn it into a tit for tat battle agaisnt political parties its pathetic how does anything get done that way

  3. I’m a Canadian taxpayer and I disapprove of this message.

  4. The NDP blocked the nonconfidence vote or Trudeau would be on his way out. voting NDP is simply another vote for the Liberals.

    • @J Parish yeah, I don’t think there would really be a big change from the last election. The East controls the election, they are going to keep Trudeau in change indefinitely. He was the worst PM in Canadian history during his first term, and even despite all that, he still won the last election. It’s naive to think any level of corruption or incompetency would result in Trudeau losing an election. The East likes him despite everything, and they will keep him in indefinitely.

    • Nathan Levesque | October 21, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

      It would be a disaster for Canadians. Now is not a safe time to even have an election. Even the Cons agree.

    • @SQeeeKY MoUsE Who did you vote for last time?

    • @AH Hmm who do you think?

    • No, Trudeau would get a majority. Jughead would lose his influence, the Tories would be back at sqare one, and we would have Trudeau for another four years rather than 2. He can’t lose, and he knows it. He has Toronto in his back pocket, and the entire country has been paid off with CERB. Make no mistake, it’s not temporary. It’s the new income equality program. That’s why it keeps being extended.

  5. Small and mid size bussiness fund Canada with tax money….NDP is out to lunch. Justin is a handsome bank robber at best. Lets vote!

  6. Liberal Voters: Please explain your reasoning.

    • @J Parish He’s not degrading women. He is speculating that you chose to study a worthless degree. A degree that provides little to the economy.

    • Flavius Belisarius | October 21, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      @J Parish and speaking of polarization you cant deny all the leftist parties have also been falling for trumps tactics. Just the lefty version , with things like cancel culture. Very undemocratic

    • @Flavius Belisarius Yeah you’re right

    • @J Parish When did I say I disagreed with you? All I said is that you spend your day in the YouTube comment section, instead of getting a job or BEING PRODUCTIVE.

    • Flavius Belisarius | October 21, 2020 at 7:58 PM | Reply

      @J Parish give your kid up to the state. Sounds wonderful

  7. The ndp is colluding with the liberals like they did to prorogue parliament. They’re on the same team

  8. Knob

  9. Well ain’t this a shock

    • Zeediana Parnell | October 21, 2020 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      It is shocking already, we need a new stimulus bill right now to pay for all the expenses incurred and not in hurry for an election. We need a releaf bill to access money and not hurry for an election!

  10. He isn’t withholding an election from Trudeau, he is giving the liberals his confidence. The framing of this story is atrocious.

    • That’s what I was thinking. Trudeau’s promise to hold an election over this was directed to the NDP

    • exactly

    • This isn’t about confidence whatsoever. The Liberals know that the NDP can’t afford an election, which is why they made it a confidence vote in the first place. They knew the NDP couldn’t vote for the committee if they were by extension triggering an election. This is self-preservation by the NDP, who have the most power they’ve had in a long time under the current government.

  11. Complete BS

  12. What is up with this government? Can we not investigate the libs without having an election?

  13. Is anyone fooled by this spin? The NDP now serve the Liberal Party.

    • @Marcel Langevin Pretty crazy to think that they would’ve won back then, wonder what they were like.

    • justsayupyours | October 21, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      And serve themselves.

    • Or you know. The NDP know that support for the liberals is likely high enough for them to win a majority as their approval is higher than before last election, it would reset their 4 years, and then they’d be able to do whatever they want without scrutiny. Where as right now they are a minority so the NDP if they don’t like a liberal bill can strike it down by siding with the Cons and Bloc

    • @Brendan James aa loserr the libs numbers are lower than the torys

    • So I mean. Really don’t think the NDP want the Liberals calling an elections since the party losing most in most of these polls is the NDP likely whats causing the big Liberal gains.

  14. Trudeau acting tough threatening an election, knowing all along exactly what Singh would do.

  15. Sell out!

    • Clot-in-Eye Joe | October 21, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      ndp and liberals are strong together. conservatives are such losers. never again in canada. move to America haha. what a mess harper and scheer were.

  16. THE NDP IS CORRUPT AND BANKRUPT. They need the free money from the liberals and is willing to protect the liberals to continue getting it

  17. It’s funny because last he was in B.C campaigning for Horgan who called a snap election, but doesn’t want a election at the federal level? Hmmmm

    • Cause the Federal NDP’s are broke and over 30 mil in debt, they can’t afford an election and probably lose the few seats they have. Funny how the party who wants to tax and spend everything can’t seem to get donations…

  18. The NDP would be wiped off the electoral map. BTW they are flat broke, both ethically and monetarily.

  19. Aerial Perspectives | October 21, 2020 at 6:43 PM | Reply

    Might as well resign now Singh, you’ll never be elected PM.

  20. “Continue to hold the government to account “
    Since when?
