Liberal Minister Chrystia Freeland was asked to apologize after commenting on Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre’s appearance in the House of Commons.

Freeland apologizes after attacking Poilievre’s appearance in the House of Commons 

The Deputy Prime Minister suggested Poilievre was “wearing more makeup than I am today” during a heated exchange on Tuesday regarding the legalization of hard drugs. 

“Now I think it’s wonderful,” she added, while the Liberal party laughed in the background.

Her comment came after Polievre asked if the Liberals “plan to legalize drugs again after the election.”

House Speaker Greg Fergus requested Freeland to withdraw her statement, saying, “We don’t comment on the appearances of members.”

She then withdrew her comment and apologized while calling Poilievre “phony all the way through.”

“He is phony when it comes to his concern about the economy. All he can do is talk our country down. And he is phony when he talks about his concern about the opioid crisis. He tries to score cheap partisan points,” she said.

Poilievre removed for calling Trudeau “wacko”

Last month, Pierre Poilievre was removed from the House of Commons for using the word “wacko” to describe Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 

When commenting on drug overdoses in BC and Trudeau’s failure to act on the BC government’s request to quickly reverse their decision and recriminalize hard drugs, Poilievre stated “Mr. Speaker, it is a choice for [Trudeau] to implement extremist policies that have taken the lives of 2,500 British Columbians every single year.”

“But [Trudeau] continues to allow those drugs to kill the people in our hospitals and on our public transit. When will we put an end to this wacko policy by this wacko Prime Minister?” he said. 

Liberal Speaker Greg Fergus immediately asked Poilievre to withdraw his statement. 

“Mr. Speaker, I replace ‘wacko’ with ‘extremist’,” Poilievre said.

Ultimately by continuing to replace the word wacko, Poilievre was booted from the House of Commons with every Conservative MP following him.
