To help Justin Trudeau avoid real questions, the PM’s security team pushed The Counter Signal’s editor in Chief, Keean Bexte, onto the street directly in front of oncoming traffic.
The PM is in Prince Edward Island after a near two week vacation since announcing his separation from his wife Sophie.
Bexte asked Trudeau about Climate Change Minister Steven Guilbeault’s recent announcement that he’ll travel to China to play buddy buddy with top politicians, where he serves as the vice chair on a communist council.
Guilbeault sits as vice chair on the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED), which consists mostly of Chinese politicians.
Guilbeault has received criticism on his planned trip, including from Alberta’s Premier Danielle Smith.
“After a recent news report that Minister Steven Guilbeault is a vice-chair of a CCP environmental group, I am concerned why the Minister wants to force Alberta to 2035, but it is okay with China getting there by 2060,” Smith said.
Alberta’s massive oil and gas sector generates almost 90% of the province’s power.
Liberal’s running on promises over their past
Trudeau’s Liberals are set for a caucus retreat where they’ll strategize on ways to improve their polling numbers, which are well below the opposition Conservatives.
338 Canada shows the PM’s Liberal Party losing to the Conservatives by a wide margin, if an election were to be held today. The Conservatives are currently projected to win between 135-201 seats, compared to the Liberals projected to win 77-140.
170 seats are needed to form a majority government.
Last week, an anonymous Liberal MP said their boss’ recent cabinet shuffle was akin to putting “lipstick on a pig.”
