The way he said he was ‘surprised’ when his team apprised him of Trump’s illness, was nicely put, I am sure a lot of less generous souls had different reactions...

Confidence vote tomorrow.

His attempt to to try and get an election without looking like it's his fault?

If you're referring to Trudeau's comments on the French terrorist attack in relation to the high school discussion of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, then your words are a gross mischaracterization of the Canadian government's position. What Trudeau said was
We will always defend freedom of expression. But freedom of expression is not without limits. We owe it to ourselves to act with respect for others and to seek not to arbitrarily or unnecessarily injure those with whom we are sharing a society and a planet.
In other words, freedom of expression is a right. But rights ought not to be separated from the responsibilities that come with them.

Of course, there are commentators who seek to play that up into something it is not. The first such reference I find with a quick google is an Ezra Levant rant on Rebel Media, in which the opening paragraph contains such a glaringly false premise - equating a parliamentary "division" (a term carried over from the Westminster system of physically passing through a divided lobby) with the concept of divisive rhetoric - that the whole of the rest of the piece is meaningless.

If that's what you've based your comment on, I would strongly suggest that you stop reading it - or, if you must, at least try and find some semblance of balance before commenting.

No idea about Ezra Levant and I don't think I've read any opinion pieces on this. However, you did identify the correct topic and the exact quote. Whilst I don't believe in absolute freedom of speech, I do believe in the freedoms put forth by Charlie Hebdo and confrimed by Macron, and it's these that Trudeau appears to be sniping at rather than supporting.

Not exactly Trudeau however another corrupt member of his Liberal Caucus
This evening I have advised the Prime Minister’s Office and the Speaker of the House of Commons that I am stepping down from the Liberal Caucus. I made an error in judgement by employing my sister in my constituency office, and I have remedied the situation, but this does not excuse the error I made

https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/...b623bfac53d6c1

Surprise surprise the CBC is not allowing comments on this.

But Harper, Bev Oda $16 orange juice, Duffy trying to pay back money etc etc

Any wonder why some won't vote.

Seems to be a fairly minor issue in the big picture.

Anyhow she will still be sitting MP and still be voting with the Liberals, so not like anything changes.

I always find it amusing, I screwed up, so I will leave the party, but stay in my seat collecting my paycheck.

One of these days one of these companies is gonna go, eh we don't need Canada adios amigos.

I don't buy anything from google, Amazon just products that are already subject to GST and PST, and eh netflix would add a couple dollars a month extra, but Netflix is nearing my cut off point to where its not worth having, one thing when it was like $9/month but these days, not so much, not enough of what I want to watch, and too many netflix originals that simply don't interest me, they have basically become online version of cable.....

Never believe a politician, if you do you will be disappointed. In political world 2018 was a lifetime ago now, plus they have gotten into a fairly deep financial hole due to the pandemic which really couldn't be avoided with the massive loss of employment that occurred early in the year and still hasn't recovered from, so suppose tax revenue either has to go up, or we can expect services to be cut.
