interesting Q for Erin O'Toole jn. He's asked what he thinks of the fact that it's solely Justin Trudeau is the target of these dangerous protests (paraphrased)

O'Toole answers "that's why we choose to have a positive campaign in a studio, where it's safe"

I get the impression that Mr. O'Toole is proud of the fact he is using a "safe" studio environment for his pressers. He keeps mentioning the word "positive" implying contrast to Trudeau's "negative" experience campaigning w protests.

Personally, think it makes E O'T look weak

re-listening, to make sure I heard correctly (via CPAC). The sentence before he said this, he was speaking about the pandemic. It could be that he meant safe from Covid. If so, I might have to delete my thread - don't wish to present his words out of context.
(update, to show exact wording "That’s why we use our studio to talk about our recovery plan, in person, in the studio every day in a way that’s safe and positive")

slightly nasty tinge (IMHO) to this speech by the CPC leader right now

(listening on @CBCNews)

wouldn't recommend tuning in. It's a combination of misleading statements, accusations of being divisive - while being extremely divisive with the content of this speech, and so on
Mr. O'Toole just asked about tone of his speech. Reporter pointed out "you started this campaign by claiming you were more positive, but you were anything but, in this speech. You made personal attacks on Mr. Trudeau."

O'Toole doesn't answer, asks Cdns to compare platforms
now another reporter is asking if Mr. O'Toole is concerned his victory is slipping away, based upon the tone of his speech today (paraphrased)

reporters keep asking the fed NDP leader what he'd do differently, asking for specifics - what would his govt do that Trudeau has not done. They ask if he's consulted the communities.

(doesn't answer - see next tweet)
Mr. Singh's answer to being asked for specifics of what he'd do differently than Liberal govt: "It's the passion and conviction. I just don't believe after six years, it shouldn't have happened."
Reporter: "Your platform has money for Indigenous communities. Where would that money go, that you have in your platform?"

He doesn't answer. Just pivots to "Trudeau bad"

- excellent speech at Welland, Ontario, by Trudeau. He's taking questions now.

I love how definitive, and fired up he was, and assume the @liberal_party campaign will share clips from his speech, on social media

still hope they upload short clips as well

PMJT "Do you recall at the beginning of the pandemic when we banged pans in thanks for help from frontline workers? Now they need our help. They are being surrounded by anti-vaxxer protests across the country. They need us to stand up for them once again by getting vaccinated."
PMJT "We are committed to rolling out vaccination proof programs. And you can see how this has impacted decisions by Doug Ford. I think we all know this wouldn't happen if Erin O'Toole were sitting across the table from Dough Ford." (paraphrased)
PMJT "We'll keep fighting for $10/day child care, to get the economy roaring back. And we'll continue to bring in concrete measures to fight climate change. We will build a Canada even stronger."
