"Isn't there a hospital you should be going to bother right now?" Trudeau responded, pulling down his mask to ensure the protesters heard.

So is Erin O'Toole now automatically PM?

I'm not so sure that protester would have liked to actually fight the Prime Minister...

The guy on the receiving end of being choked by Chrétien was an anti poverty activist protesting cuts to the social safety net. His being assaulted wasn't anything worthy of celebration.

however anti vaxers/anti maskers are moronic scum. fark them.

And I don't care what the guy was protesting. He deserved to get the shiat kicked out of him.

Indigenous protester interrupts Trudeau event

Trudeau is pretty thin skinned when he isn't in front of fawning fans. I love this video of him thanking Native protestors for their donation to his campaign as they are dragged out by security to thunderous applause.

I agree that the protestor did nothing to merit the chokehold. I'd also mention it happened about three months after someone broke into the PM's residence to attempt to assassinate Chretien, and he might've been a touch jumpy at the time.

I stil remember the 2000 new years celebration at parliament hill when cretien jumped the fence to escape his RCMP guards and wandered into the crowd going from attractive woman to attractive woman shaking hands. I was beside almea so i got to shake his hand too.

Did you know that Trudeau has something in his résumé in common with the Pope? True. Trudeau was a bouncer and so was the Pope.

Don't pick a fight with a former Bouncer, Bozo. Even if he is as old as the Pope.

Because if you fark around, you will find out that old guys are much tougher than young incel crybabies

When I saw Trudeau mocking protesters like his Daddy did, I thought:  fuddle duddle you man, fuddle duddle.

It is offensive. He promised to make sure all reservations had clean drinking water by 2021 but "thanks for your donations".

I think that the Election will turn out all right. They always fake us out with the threat of a Tory Goobermental Victory. And the weasily damn Liberals always pull their asses out of the fire at the last moment. Well, mostly. That time Brian Mulroney won in about 15 minutes after the first poll closed in the most Eastern riding of Newfoundland really POed the Westerners who had yet to vote and were already Pooned Trump-style.

A minority government is just fine with most Canadians, even those who vote Tory. A Liberal Majority is just too damn cocky and liable to make mistakes.

Although they have never gone as far down the road to Hell as electing Donald Jerky Turkey Jerky Trump.

Polls have LPC and CPC at about 32% each right now, NDP at 20%. If only Trudeau hadn't burned the NDP last parliament, he could be assured of a coalition minority. Looks like it's going to be close, but we're a week out, plenty of time for someone to fark up.

There won't be an official coalition, but you'll probably see quite a few backroom agreements on shared targets. The balance of the time being spent trying to trip each other up in jockeying for the next election.

Justin Trudeau usually holds himself together in the face of taunts and jeers. The stress of this campaign and popularity-poll numbers are getting to him.

And yeah, Justin can take and throw a punch, but there's no way he'd raise a fist to some yahoo in a crowd when it is so close to election day. "Trudeau hits protestor" would become a dominant story, and the damage control required would take airtime away from their party messaging.

JT likes to pretend hes all maple syrup and sleigh rides. The truth is hes very controlling and lacks self awareness when it doesnt contribute to his vanity.

He doesnt deal well with being told hes wrong. Whether hes actually wrong or not. And that's actually a huge problem for someone trying to lead in a wesminster system.

Hes got thin skin. And hes always stuck me as a bit of an asshole. So this comment isnt really a shock.

Hey, I sympathize with the guy's plight but getting in the PM's face is a dick move.

There are many avenues for pushing your social activism. Being a royal prick in public is not one of them.

This isn't wholly partisan -- there are stupendous shiatheads on both sides of the spectrum. If you can't grow up, act like a mature adult, and address the leader of our country with respect and intelligence, then don't be surprised when he shuts down your obnoxious, insufferable ass.

After apologizing, of course.

As the leader of the nation, he should have stayed with his security detail and not waded into a group of protesters. Excusing his behaviour on that basis is akin to excusing the behaviour of anyone on the basis they've experienced something traumatic. It's not an excuse. And as Prime Minister he was the last person in Canada who should be excused for doing it.  Just like Trudeau's denigration of an indigenous protester about clean water is not acceptable. Just like the majority of what Harper stood for is not acceptable.

It's not ideological to call people on their bullshiat. And if they don't do anything more than apologize, without real change, they are likely assholes.

The protester didn't tell Trudeau he was wrong. He yelled that Trudeau's wife is a whore. That is the sort of thing that will sometimes get a reaction.

Is that what you call it when you boot somebody out of the party for doing their appointed job rather than buckling to political pressure? Trudeau was more than happy to have a Native woman as a diversity prop but when she showed more backbone and honesty than him she had to go. The ethics investigation found him in the wrong as well it is amazing that anybody still defends how he acted.

But enough about Erin O'Toole. You know, the guy who gets into epic Facebook shiatposts with his constituents when he's called out on his crap - be it his nonsense position on climate change, the location of the GO station in his riding, his non-contribution to the Afghanistan monument or the hospital helicopter issue - Erin always has to be right, and gets incredibly prickly when challenged.

I'm just shocked there were no screenshots of his posts in this election.
