Trudeau defends choice to make Conservative committee motion a confidence vote

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is defending his decision to designate as a confidence vote a Conservative motion pushing for the creation of a committee tasked with looking into “ethical problems” with government spending, including the WE Charity scandal.

“It will be up to parliamentarians, the opposition, to decide whether they want this minority government to work or whether they’ve lost confidence,” he said.

Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole has said while he has no confidence in the Liberal government, he does not want to send Canadians back to the polls amid the coronavirus second wave.

David Akin has details on the motion that threatens to shake up parliament.

    Shouldn't this speak volumes that he will force an election in hopes of gaining more support to snuff it out. As in being actually guilty. Problem is they do have a Ace up their sleeve which is Covid relief packages being passed creating more and more people dependent on the government. Of course this will not have a positive outcome should it continue as it will be a death spiral. Sadly I do not have the confidence that Canadians would side w/ conservatives.

    However I myself must admit I only see Trudeau-lite in Mr. O'toole

    Trudeau does not want all his corruption exposed before an election. He wants an election before his corruption is exposed. Conservatives want an investigation into all the missing money.

    Trudeau is a pathalogical liar. Narcassitic lunatic. He will destroy Canada. He is laughing all the way to the bank. Billions gone from Canada … all in his off shore bank account.

    Erin O'toole is a liberal-lite.
    Vote PPC.
    We will use the constitution to build pipelines, the west will get back their jobs mostly in the oil industry which affects directly alot of small business.
    We will put a moratorium on immigration until we balance the budget and then we will reduce immigration from 300 000 to 150 000 but will increase skilled immigrants from 26% to 50% so the number stays the same at around 75 000.
    We will have a smaller government and focus on federal juridiction and we will not interfere in provincial juridiction.
    More focus on borders so less illegal immigrants.
    We will focus on Canada first, removing the country from UN organisations.

    There is no Conservative/Liberal dichotomy in Canada or any Western Nation any longer – they are ALL Globalist puppets, theatrical political chaos distracts people from the true agenda of Global Communism, (there are presently no openly fascist governments in modern existence) and political chaos simulates solution-making, which encourages us not to intervene or work together as citizens to form a solution that we would actually benefit from. They create conditions that make us feel vulnerable and helpless, then they insist that the only way to fix it is to give the government more power to 'protect' us, all the while removing freedoms. If this cycle continues for long enough in modern conditions, we will ultimately lose the ability to retake freedom, once and for all.
