The Buffalo Chronicle is a questionable source, at best, but it is reporting on a rumour that has been circulation for several days now. Its current story says that “Less than two weeks ahead of federal elections that have already been looking conclusively grim for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, rumors of an explosive sex scandal are percolating at the highest echelons of Canada’s media establishment … [and] … Ottawa’s longest-tenured political observers had been expecting a career-ending expose in Sunday’s edition of The Globe and Mail — but that story never came. Sources are now telling The Chronicle that Trudeau is in private talks with the principal source of that piece to suppress explosive sex allegations that, if made public, would likely force Trudeau to resign his office … [but] … Trudeau’s accuser is said to be a former student at West Point Grey Academy and the daughter of a wealthy Canadian businessman. Sources tell The Chronicle that she is being represented by counsel and is being offered monetary compensation in exchange for a pending, but not yet signed, non-disclosure agreement.” (The image, above, is one from the now infamous West Point Grey Academy yearbook.)
Normally, I would wait on this, but the English language debate ~ the only English language debate, despite there being two in French ~ which is timed, it appears, to deprive many Western Canadians of a chance to see and hear the leaders and which is half-over as this goes on-line, and I can only hope that one of the moderators ~ some of whom are also questionable, in my opinion, ~ will at least offer Prime Minister Justin Trudeau an opportunity to categorically deny this unproven allegation.
If there is any substance, at all, to any of this then Justin Trudeau must resign or be forced out of this election by his Party,
