CTV News (and almost every other media outlet) says:
Journalists, all journalists, need to ask one question: Why?
But that will, of necessity lead to another …
Why in the name of all that’s holy would Prime Minister Trudeau want to send Canadians to the polls during a global pandemic? What is so important? What issue would make you go to the Governor General and ask for an election? What are you trying to hide?
Why did you prorogue parliament? Why are your MPs filibustering in committee? Why are you threatening an election? What are you trying to hide?
What is so damaging that you would risk political defeat and put Canadian voters at a very real risk of being exposed to the COVID-19 coronavirus? What have you done that might make that necessary? What are you trying to hide?
No one cares how the Trudeau children will spend Halloween. We, Canadians, want answers to two questions:
- Why would Justin Trudeau want to call an election? and
- Why this Watergate level coverup; what is he trying to hide?
