    (0:19) The conclusions of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report are opinions based on facts Evan, not facts unto themselves. Therefore, it is not possible for Erin O’Toole or anyone else to factually contradict that report or its authors. Whoever wrote that statement should learn the difference.

    • It would seem to me that the facts of the report are being violated, not the opinions of the report. You said it yourself, the report contains both facts and opinion, and it was made clear that what OToole said contradicts the facts not the opinions per se.

  4. How dare he.. Next he’ll be wearing blackface.

    • @colton421 shut up no one cares that was like 20 years ago he already has apologized

      @Blue13 for Trudeau, the king of inclusivity and acceptance, for him to show what he did in his past says a lot about his core beliefs. Trudeau is full of s**t

    • @colton421 Neither are okay. They aren’t mutually exclusive, and Canada’s not a two-party system

      ​@Genesis RC & FPV I bet you really care about racial injustice, definitely. You only vote for the NDP and not the liberals or conservatives because they are both trash, right?

      you only care because of his party, you would not be saying this if it was a conservative who did it (oh wait, conservatives actually do WORSE).

    • @colton421 Moron, absolutely no one said it was ok for Trudeau to do Blackface. He apologized profusely BTW, while this clown O’Toole just backtracked his statement.

  5. And what’s Trudeau under fire for?

  6. What shoddy reporting

  7. Dude I feel like we always have to choose two objectively shity party’s.

  8. Typical politician. Change your mind when anyone disagrees.

  9. Wolf in sheep’s clothing

  10. Can someone explain the use if the the word survivor. I went through the same system but I don’t claim to be a survivor…

    • 289pinto, 25% to 75% of the children who went to residential schools died while they were there. You would be a survivor if you actually went there and came out alive.

    • @James Ryan 25-75%…. 60% percent of the time it works 100% of the time

  11. This is why O’Toole will never be prime minister….

    wait what did he say that was wrong here he admitted to it being a bad thing I am confused

    • He said the schools were for education. He was trying to defend Ryerson. In fact, the schools were set up to eradicate indigenous culture. Does that help?

    • @Sean Mahoney did he not mention that “it turned into a horrible program” which leads me to belive he just doesn’t know too much about the topic or doesn’t fully understand what it was actually supposed to do.

    I knew this would come back to him

  14. You can tell that these guys were paid by the LP

  15. Then why are we still paying and apologizing?

    I seriously don’t see the big deal about this.

  17. Any story to keep burying the Liberal corruption.

  18. Error O’Fool rides again!

  19. O’ Fool strikes again.

  20. O’toole needs to have blackface tell his female party members to be quiet get his picture taken with a few criminals tell everyone he is a feminist apologize for everything some one else has done legalize drugs and spend the country into debt no one can ever pay for screw over veterans and then maybe Ontario will vote for him.
