    If we weren't in the middle of an election, I'd say it was time for him to step down, but him stepping down right now probably ensures a PC victory, and I really don't want that to happen.

    FFS, here's hoping the liberals still win the election, but that he steps down or is forced out shortly after.

    Trudeau just gave the election to Sheer. Between SNC, groping and now this he is done. I wonder how this will affect the local minister ridings.

    If I was Sheer I'd be worried that the Liberals make Jodie Wilson-Raybould the interim leader.

    Normally, I vote Liberal, although I prefer the NDP. My riding always goes conservative, and it's not usually close either, but the Liberals always come in second, so normally I plug my nose, close my eyes and cast the Liberal vote in the hopes that I'll be surprised and the conservatives don't win.

    But this is just embarrassing at this point. Trudeau is not the person I want representing our country on the international stage any more. He's had some gaffes, but if we elect him after this, it'd feel embarrassing to say that we knew this about him, and he was still the one we picked to lead us. Sure, he's learned, and he's taking ownership and he's apologized unequivocally, but our prime minister should be the best of us. This is not the best of us.

    If the liberals said right now that they'd be finding new leadership after the election regardless of outcome, then I would still vote for them. Otherwise I'm going to have to sit down and look at the platforms of the NDP and the Greens to figure out which of those two to cast my vote for. Probably the NDP over the Greens, but I'll at least look at the platforms before I make my decision.

    My riding is going to go conservative no matter what anyways though, so it really doesn't matter I guess.....

    Why do I have the feeling that these virtue-signaling people are the ones with the darkest (no pun intended) past? I sure don't want these people telling me how to live my life.

    It's not really clear what you're talking about here.

    Who are the "virtue-signaling people" and when are they telling you how to live your life?

    In case any of you ladies and gents are interested in your friendly French speaking Québécois opinion on the brown faced Trudeau matter, I will say that we think it's indeed disgusting but we've been saying that he is a fucking idiot (and the son of the Antichrist) since the last election. Then, we'll roll our eyes and shrug.

    We're busier keeping watch on that even stupider and potentially more dangerous Trump 2.0 wannabe called Maxime Bernier, aka Mad Max. I'm praying that my fellow Beaucerons compatriots will oust him for good.

    we all know donning blackface or any sort of throwback to minstrel theater is crazy racist... except it wasn't always called out for how crazy it was, and then there's pretty recent versions of it that were excused for it; like Tropic Thunder... because that was the joke. Except.. a single photo of Robert Downey Jr in blackface could be spun as something insanely racist without the movie... and even then, you could say it's still racist.

    I don't know. At least he's owning it, apologizing, admitting he did something wrong, isn't trying to distract from the accusation... and Trudeau has never struck me as a really "racist sort of person" in general. Maybe he is. I don't know. Everybody fucks up though, and this was 18 years ago, back before we all decided Prince Harry was the greatest, super great guy, and forgot all about that time he showed up to a party dressed as Hitler with his buddy in a klan hat or some shit.

    edit: The more I'm reading about this, the weirder it gets...

    Hope you guys oust that shithead you have for a premier, that assault on religious freedoms and mainly those who wear turbans, niqaabs, hijabs etc. is disgusting! I'm all for separation of church and state but this the wrong way to go about it.

    Similarly Doug Ford and Jason Kenney need to get gone as well.
