  1. If news were more focused on our country’s politics, the liberal approval rate would be a lot lower.

  2. Why aren’t you talking about the $1 million donation that Trudeau received from the guy who was busted for the illegal casino in Markham? You know, the same illegal casino that had 11 illegal guns!

    • @Ed J I’m looking still, but I can’t remember where I saw it.

    • @Ed J Do you see the link in this thread? I can see it here on my end, but that doesn’t mean that you can.

    • @Jim Dent Fair enough, but there’s also a limit one can get back from a tax credit donation too.
      It does raise an eyebrow at the very least.

    • @Xavier Given that Trudeau refused to talk about it in the house, it should raise both eyebrows, and get one’s spidy senses tingling. I’ve included a link, are you seeing it. I can see it here, but I suspect that I’m the only one. MSM like censoring such things.

    • @Jim Dent No I don’t see any links 🧐

    It should be a total erasure of the Liberal party of Canada, why the party doesn’t kick Trudeau and Butts out the Liberal party and do a rebrand is absolutely befuddleing.

    • Why should Canadians kick him out, when he have done so very well during the Pandemic. Disgusting comment.

    • @Devil City He honestly didn’t do too well.

    • @Devil City lmao, only gathered a few scandals and ethics violations along the way. He’s only swimming in corruption along with the rest of the Liberal Party. How much do you get payed by Chairman Xi for you comments?

    • @Devil City you are correct… financially Trudeau and is corrupt friends have made millions while the Canadian middle class is being devastated.

  5. we will vote ppc in the next vote .we have to get these buffon out .

  6. get trudeau out

  7. Trudeaus going to walk away i hope… but Freeland is 10x less unelectable… but he may bail so his namesake doesnt take to much of a hit… is the Captain gonna abandon ship… NDP are just as Traitorous as these Lieberals… finance and ethics committee in shambles… Canada is a Dumpster Fire.. a la Trudeau

  8. If everyone who voted PPC last time would have voted Conservative, we never would have been in this mess. PPC is a luxury we cannot afford right now. Maybe some day but right now we need to get rid of Justin at all costs!

  9. Junior also gave 200 million to a failing casino. Why is the government giving a casino that kind of money?

  10. The NDP have to come to the realization that they have one of the worst leaders ever. Charlie Angus should be the NDP leader. He’s in tune with Canada.

  11. No not all parties agreed. Do your homework.

  12. I want an election to vote all the crooks out from all parties.

    Call an election now before we completly lose Canada.

    The NDP leader is a lunatic for propping up the Liberals.

  15. I am so tired of all the criminals and liars in federal politics…… THE WEST MUST SEPARATE FROM THESE FOOLS!!!

  16. The amount of straight out corruption and deception is out of control even the paid news organization cant hide it anymore. They have no choice they have to flip sides. But the damage is done

  17. I think WE the Canadian tax payer’s should be addressed on everything about the WE scandal.

    The Covid tracing app was a waste, should have made a WE money tracing app instead.

  19. I feel sorry for the younger folks in this country. They will be paying a premium for the rest of their lives due to the financial mess created by this Liberal government. The longer the Liberals are in power, the situation will just get worse and worse.

  20. Forgot most of all he is involved with the CCP.
