Yes, you read that right. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was too gutless to attend the first debate of his re-election campaign. What a joke. Naturally the Left-wing media in Canada will give Trudeau a pass for this act of cowardice. This is an example of why Canada has become a laughing stock and irrelevant country.
The Conservative Party candidate Andrew Scheer will only have ONE CHANCE to take on PM Trudeau, since Trudeau will only commit to one English speaking debate. Scheer better make his one chance count, or PM Trudeau will very likely be re-elected on October 21st.
Opponents pounce on Liberal record after Trudeau’s no-show at leaders’ debate
By John Paul Tasker, CBC, September 13, 2019:
Justin Trudeau’s three main political rivals attacked his record in office with impunity Thursday after the Liberal leader was a no-show for the Maclean’s/Citytv debate — leaving viewers with the impression that the last four years have been anything but positive.
While he finished the day on a high note with an amped-up, high-energy rally in Edmonton, his opponents had free rein in front of a television audience.
At times the debate was a sort of “greatest hit” list of the prime minister’s perceived failings in his first term: the SNC-Lavalin debacle, unbalanced budgets, a major pipeline purchase, troubled Crown-Indigenous relations, a fractious relationship with China and a much-mocked trip to India.
A relatively subdued Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer dismissed Trudeau as an unethical and wasteful spendthrift who has run up budget deficits.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, who was punchy, and well-prepared in his attacks, branded Trudeau as a callous leader who uses “pretty words” while also mocking First Nations people living in Grassy Narrows with a poisoned water supply.
Singh pointed to the ready access SNC lobbyists had to the prime minister’s office as proof Trudeau isn’t in it for average Canadians. “Mr. Trudeau hasn’t shown up for people for four years and he hasn’t shown up today for the people,” Singh said.
Trudeau would not debate his opponents because his incompetence would be exposed. Instead, he had a rally in Edmonton.
