Do we have any po­lit­i­cal clout?

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

The Ed­i­tor, Be­ware: Justin Trudeau caught in the Ro­man Cal­en­dar March 15, Ides of March.

With kissy faces ga­lore ha­bit­ual as seen on TV, Trudeau presents and projects a Hol­ly­wood-style not too ma­ture, per­sonal pic­ture. His choice of as­sis­tants in the Prime Min­is­ter’s of­fice shows a mis­un­der­stand­ing of this high of­fice. With past Ka­ti­mavik pro­gram sum­mer ex­pe­ri­ence, min­i­mal months teach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, Trudeau ver­sus Stephen Harper, a univer­sity grad­u­ated econ­o­mist who un­der­stood global af­fairs, left Canada with a bal­anced bud­get. Trudeau cer­tainly does not com­pare; cam­paign­ing, de­mo­niz­ing Harper, spout­ing of le­gal­iz­ing cannabis, prom­ises of yet to come sunny days.

The SNC-Lavalin mish-mash of po­lit­i­cal favouritis­m to many crooked com­pa­nies is what it is in many, many Cana­dian and world busi­nesses. Trudeau, Butts and friends chose to howl at Jus­tice and At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jody Wil­son Rey­bould, whose ap­pointed job man­date was to bring Lavalin to ac­count af­ter 30 years of cor­rup­tion.

The Prime Min­is­ter’s of­fice tried to pre­vent Jody Wil­son from per­form­ing her Cana­dian rule of law man­date. Not too high I.Q. for Trudeau knew all this but boldly his ever de­vi­ous Hol­ly­wood style and smile ap­pear­ing on TV bluff­ing vot­ers on sunny days.

For him, the Ro­man Cal­en­dar March 15, Ides of March, dan­ger­ous winds, snow po­lit­i­cal melt­down are now in ef­fect.

Lit­tle Amanda, our provin­cial MPP, sits now as an in­de­pen­dent. I ask un­der whose clever di­rec­tion is she un­der. We in Glen­garry-Prescot­tRus­sell might say we have no proper po­lit­i­cal clout in Toronto!

As far as Drouin, part of the low I.Q.’s Trudeau gang -- he votes in­dis­crim­i­nately. How bright, I ask the voter. Canada in spite of fed­eral po­lit­i­cal and lo­cal medi­ocrity will vote next Oc­to­ber. Trudeau does not in­spire or does he?
