Trudeau wants option to keep hiding for another year

Trudeau and the Liberals are proposing a motion to extend the hybrid provisions to allow members to keep hiding (work from home) for another year rather than face opposition in person.

“We will be moving forward with a motion to see the hybrid provisions continued for an additional year,” said Liberal MP Mark Holland.

Holland said the hybrid model allows MPs infected with COVID to participate in parliament virtually.

“We are still in a pandemic reality,” he added.

Debates will take place later in the week regarding the motion.

But conservative House member John Brassard got ahead of the debate and addressed the Liberal’s plan.

“When the Liberals talk about a hybrid parliament, what they’re really talking about is setting up a parliament where they can be less accountable. In the hybrid parliament, ministers don’t have to walk through the media’s scrums. It’s a great way of avoiding reporters’ questions,” he said.

Brassard further noted that hybrid parliament is a cheap way to “avoid opposition scrutiny” and that it can create chaos and confusion while members “muddle [their] way through” amendments to bills.

To this point, Brassard reflected on a recent vote that relied on virtual members using an app, which resulted in the app crashing. 

“Imagine if that had been a confidence vote.”

“…These kinds of circumstances are contributing to a decline in our democracy.”

Indeed, Trudeau seems to avoid opposition at all costs.

For example, during the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa, Trudeau went into hiding at his cottage for precisely five days despite testing negative for COVID.

Following the protest, Trudeau scampered off to the UK, where he was caught sneaking in the back door to avoid anti-Trudeau demonstrations at 10 Downing Street.

Upon returning to Canada, he then hid his itinerary until the last minute to avoid protestors — which proved ineffectual.

He even cancelled some events, claiming protestors were being racist (of course), even though no video footage indicated such.

Moreover, after returning from his trip to the Americas Summit and facing intense scrutiny regarding the Emergencies Act hearings back home, Trudeau announced that he had COVID yet again — though, this could have been to avoid addressing a possible Liberal coup.

All these incidents have resulted in the #cowardofthecottage trending on Twitter several times over the last few months.
