(We agree. Trudeau bobbing and weaving to avoid scrutiny is appalling)


Open letter to the Conservative Party of Canada: Please help trigger an early federal election. And then don’t run candidates, let the Liberals win. After four more years of major league mismanagement propped up by the NDP, the Conservatives will find themselves the new natural governing party by default.

(But what a mess it would be to clean up)


The NDP voted against an inquiry and they don’t want an election. I may be wrong, but I believe that they know if an election took place now, Trudeau would get a majority and render the NDP seatless, removing any say they have on wasteful spending. The Conservative leader hasn’t been in the role long enough to make a name for himself, and the Liberals would typically say the “big, bad, tightwad Conservatives” would take away CERB and toss everyone in the street. As usual, people would buy into it, and give the Liberals a majority four-year mandate. I think what happened Wednesday is the lesser of two evils. It’s a no-win for Canada either way.

(Our country is in big trouble)


I read with great interest Steve Simmons’s column on Brian Burke’s book (“Between the lines,” Oct. 20). Am I the only person that finds it rather ironic that the same Burke who showed so much disdain for the media when in a management position is now a media person himself? I, for one, turn down the volume whenever I see or hear him.
