Fabricated issues designed to distract

If this comes across as “political”, rest assured it is not my intention to be or appear to be partisan. Some things are so blatantly absurd that even the least educated among us ought to see the point. Our paper is in the business of reporting news, providing a modicum of objective analysis and commenting on matters of general interest.

Parliament imposes mandatory vaccination for the MPs

TORONTO – Crossfire on Erin O’Toole. In the last twenty-four hours, two other knots have emerged that will have to be dissolved and that directly concern the leader of the Conservative Party: the decision to make the vaccination obligation mandatory for MPs who want to enter the House of Commons and the analysis of the internal review of the party that will focus on the role of Maxime Bernier and his People’s Party in the defeat suffered last September 20 in the federal elections.  (more…)
