Why is failure an option, and hypocrisy and incompetence rewarded?

September 2021

So now Conservative leader Erin O’Toole is facing criticism for not denouncing Alberta Premier Jason Kenny’s handling of the pandemic, in light of the rapidly worsening COVID-19 situation in Alberta. The criticism of O’Toole centres on the fact that he has previously praised Kenny back in July for the province’s success in combating the virus, which led to Kenney lifting most COVID-19. Some pollsters are saying that this could derail any chance O’Toole has of defeating Trudeau, even by securing a Conservative minority government.

What many media outlets, and surprisingly, even O’Toole himself are failing to point out, is that Trudeau heaped the same praise on Kenny too, when he visited Alberta back in July. It should have been very easy for O’Toole’s team to post videos of Trudeau and Kenny’s meetings back then.

There has been numerous speeches made and lots of ink spilled just on the pandemic, including issues like COVID restrictions, and the vaccination status of candidates throughout this campaign, with many other important issues taking a back seat. While combating COVID-19 is certainly important, if the recent events is Alberta are enough to propel Trudeau to victory, then there really is no hope for Canada.

We all know Trudeau’s scandals, embarrassments and failures as the leader of a G8 country, including his lack of interest in monetary policy, yet he still remains popular amongst a significant portion of Canadians. It seems this same lot would still vote for Trudeau, even if he was to machine gun puppies on the lawn of Parliament Hill.

Vote wisely, my fellow Canadians. Failure doesn’t have to be an option in this country.
