I watched interim Leader of the Opposition Rona Ambrose tear strips out of Canadian PM Justin Trudeau over conflicts of interest. His answers to say the least were so hollow, scripted and insincere that there is little wonder why his poll numbers are tanking. He didn’t answer questions surrounding his family trip to the billionaire Aga Khan’s resort deflecting it by saying he’d happily answer questions from the conflicts of interest and ethics commissioner. The Conservatives are accusing Trudeau of misleading Canadians for suggesting the RCMP encouraged him to break the law. Liberals accused Rona Ambrose of vacationing with a billionaire herself but there were no conflicts of interest to be had.
Watching Ambrose reveals how out of his comfort zone Trudeau looks when facing her. He simply can’t make credible responses which show him as a capable leader. As much as he likes to promote his youth as a factor it is wearing on more Canadians.
According to the Forum Poll in Canada, the virtue signaling Liberals are being smacked in the polls. It seems Canadians would prefer a Conservative Party in its place. If an election were held today, the Conservatives would romp home with 170 seats, the Liberals 128, the NDP 26, the BQ 13, and 1 for the Greens.
