Has Trudeau made mistakes? Sure he has. Every leader does. I give him credit for admitted as much. Most are incapable of such honesty and self-awareness. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer
Of course, Leo would prefer that we elect #WeakAndy - Harper's puppet. But let us remember the govt of which Andy was part ... #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer

"given his longevity in power, & in regards 2 fundamental things people grade a govt on – such as the economy, democratic practices, the environment, corruption, foreign policy, culture, civil liberties – Harper’s record might very well place him as the worst PM in Cdn history."
EVERYONE should read the above article. It's an important reminder.
And then read this one. #cdnpoli

“Mulroney was a crook and corrupt [but] I don’t think Harper is corrupt financially. I think he’s corrupt in so many other ways… I don’t think he’s interested in money. I think he’s much more interested in power and secrecy.” #cdnpoli
I also recommend reading this - and remember that Scheer learned his trade at Harper's knee. #cdnpoli

The above should cure anyone of the illusion (or delusion) that Conservatives are "more ethical" or "less corrupt" than Liberals. #cdnpoli
As for how Conservatives tend to govern, I'll just reshare a thread I posted a few days ago about Ford. #cdnpoli

As for why I'm willing to give Trudeau a 2nd term, I'll just start here - ironically also a response to Leo. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer

The process had its hurdles, but Trudeau at least got us this inquiry. It will be up to us all to keep govt's feet to the fire on future actions. #cdnpoli

Compare that to Harper's position. Do we really want to go back to THIS?
Whereas Harper's Conservatives fought against them for years, Trudeau's Liberals brought us supervised consumption sites, which evidence shows, save lives. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer

Yet against all evidence and in the midst of an opioid crisis, Conservatives continue to try to shut them down. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer

There's still a LOT more work to be done on his file. I have ZERO confidence that it would get done under a Conservative govt. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer
While previous versions of our Food Guide were heavily influenced by industry, Liberals gave us a new food guide largely informed by health care pros. Makes sense, right? Scheer wants to reverse that. #cdnpoli #TrudeauMustStay #NeverScheer

And last but not least ... Harper's parting gift of #patronageappointments
Gotta give Harper credit for "unprecedented" moves ... or not!
