    Because he was virtue signaling for the next election.

    Hypocrisy at the highest levels.

  3. Great question Brian! Trudeau fumbled and didn’t answer cause he couldn’t. What he did broke any remaining trust, has no credibility. He placed himself and others at risk, it wasn’t essential.

    He is a fake person

  5. Trudeau is the biggest joke in Canada and it’s not a funny one at that.

  6. The title is misleading, he doesnt explain anything.

    Do anything you want now, just carry a poster and say you are protesting….you can burn trains if you have a sign here

    You’re an activist and a weak leader. We all know it.

    So… public health and safety comes second to virtue signaling. Got it.

    Well, he hasn’t followed any Canadian law to date, why disappoint now

    I’m shocked comments are open. Usually only open for subjects about other parties.

    bunch of non answers like usual

  14. Title is misleading. Should say: “Trudeau dodges questions, again”

    whatever is politically advantageous, I will do. Children cannot even go to an outdoor pool where it is very safe

      Trudeau is unfit to lead. Why is he kneeling down in a crowd during covid? He is putting the safety and health of citizens at high risk. He should be stopping these violent protests not engaging in them. Clueless airhead!

    HYPOCRITE!-vote him out!

    Ummmm….no he doesn’t.

      He is putting the health of citizens at risk protesting. He should be stopping all these violent rioters committing crime. Unfit to lead Canadians

    If you ‘FEEL’ that you’re a victim, then of course, it goes without saying … you ARE A VICTIM … a victim of ideology.

    But he couldn’t attend parliament today to defend his actions.

    Do as I say, not as I do – Liberals

    Go to a BLM protest – “Just be careful”
    Sit alone on a park bench – “Here’s your $800 fine”
