The game of political tit-for-tat in Canadian politics
Globe&Mail: Conservatives renounce Google ad that spreads false border claim
Then there's this:
The border controversy is only false in that it doesn't entirely hit the mark. Yes, the Cons were talking about UN-enforced migration, but there's something more nefarious controlling our borders and it's called America, courtesy of the Trudeau administration.
HuffPost [Dec '18]: U.S. Border Guards Are About To Receive Alarmingly Broad Powers On Canadian Soil
But it's not just the Liberals who've been so gracious to America. Courtesy of the Harper administration, from 2012 we have this:
CBC: Cross Border Policing Provokes Sovereignty Worries
And that's not all from the Cons:
Tyee: Andrew Scheer, Political Klutz
"You'll have to be patient." Why that's pretty much the same thing Trudeau said when he promised in his last election campaign to bring potable water to First Nations communities by 2020 - the year after his mandate ends! (See YYC: Stuff I find hard to fathom)
What's not so hard to fathom is why Trudeau is so protective of SNC-Lavalin that he disappeared his Justice Minister to avoid upsetting them. But, hey, we can still see her, and she's actually being eyed as a potential successor to Trudeau himself.
TheTyee: After SNC-Lavalin Disaster, Liberals’ Only Hope Is PM Jody Wilson-Raybould --
Allegations of PMO attempts to push plea deal for engineering giant doom Trudeau’s re-election hopes.
Wow! That's gotta smart!
Ms. Wilson-Raybould is of course being hounded to tell her story, but she's citing solicitor-client privilege - as she is bound to. But the thing is:
CBC: ... Trudeau could easily waive it and allow his former justice minister to speak freely and truthfully on the matter.
I'm guessing the company is bigly (thanks for the word, Donald) financing Trudeau's campaign - or at least has in the past and will again, provided yet another deal can be struck to resolve their current predicament. That's what they've become accustomed to.
CBC: A closer look at SNC-Lavalin's sometimes murky past
You know what? I bet both Trudeau and Scheer would be welcome at Wal-Mart. It, too, plays fast and loose with ethics and fair play:
It all boils down to people skills and you can be sure both Scheer and Trudeau are working hard to upgrade themselves. There's all that Flim to tweak, and then there's the Flam. Nobody said it would be easy.
