It is not surprising that now-former Commons speaker Anthony Rota resigned from his post. But the much bigger picture is the fact that Justin Trudeau is getting off scot-free from this disaster.
Doesn’t the buck stop at the PM’s office? This government is so inept and out of touch with everyday Canadians, and they seem to not give a wit about it. The economy is presently swirling in the toilet bowl, while Trudeau and his minions keep pushing carbon taxes and zero emissions on the great unwashed.
I realize that a week is a long time in politics, but a Pierre Poilievre victory, whether it be next year or 2025, is a virtual certainty. However, by then I don’t know how he will ever dig us out of this awful quagmire.
A LITTLE RESPECT?
You don’t have to like the members of the opposition, but you have to respect them. Immigration Minister Marc Miller called Pierre Poilievre, leader of the opposition, some pretty bad names.
Shameful and unacceptable, and he should be shown the door. But Justin Trudeau probably won’t fire his buddy.

WHAT’S WITH THE NICKNAMES?
I could be wrong, but it appears that having a nickname is a must in the game of hockey. Our current team includes Chucky, Bathman, Ginger, Shabby, Timmy or Jimmy, Vladdy, Brass and Forsie, to name a few. Past teams bring to mind such nicknames as Alfie, Neiler, Dutch and Zibby.
Is there a problem with the names they were given by their parents?
SUPPORTING WHILE CUTTING?
So our government has pledged another $600 million to Ukraine while cutting the budget for our own military. Another typical Liberal move. I agree with supporting Ukraine, but not if it means we cut one single dollar from our grossly underfunded Armed Forces.
I truly hope Mr. Pollieve is paying attention!
I have a comment about the lack of understanding by others on democracy. One of the letters said that Canada is not a democracy now because of the current prime minister. Apparently we cannot do or say anything we want anymore. I didn’t know that we ever could. There is libel, hate speech, fake news and more.
We have more democracy in Canada than most so-called democratic countries. India, for example, is said to be the largest democratic country in the world. Please explain how it is democratic!
