I don't know why Andrew Scheer was looking so desperate. He claims he's winning, and that Justin Trudeau could soon be in prison.
So why is he looking like such a loser?
He's trying to use this story against Trudeau.
And trying to turn Judy Wilson-Raybould into a martyr for the Con cause.
But I don't think it's going to work, because we have no idea why she resigned.
Or why she didn't resign MONTHS ago.
Neither do we know whether she agrees with Andrew Scheer when he says you can't trust Justin Trudeau.
Even though he's the biggest and dirtiest serial liar in Canada..@AndrewScheer says, “You'll pardon me if I don't take Justin Trudeau at his word…I think it's time for @JustinTrudeau to stop speaking for Jody Wilson-Raybould and let her speak for herself.” #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/vItG9yPSlI— Power & Politics (@PnPCBC) February 11, 2019
But Schmear usually enjoys lying, so I can only conclude that sad look on his face is due to the way the air is hissing out of his fake scandal balloon.
And that he is depressed about the way his polls are tanking.
The latest Nanos federal ballot tracking has the Liberals at 37.5 per cent support, followed by the Conservatives at 34.4 per cent, the NDP at 13.0 percent, the BQ at 3.8 per cent, the Greens at 7.4 per cent and the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) at 1.7 per cent.
Because this IS depressing.
Nanos tracking has Trudeau as the preferred choice as PM at 35.5 per cent of Canadians followed by Scheer (24.9%), Singh (5.9%), May (6.4%) and Bernier (3.8%). Twenty two per cent of Canadians were unsure whom they preferred.
And so soon after this devastating Leger poll.
Justin Trudeau’s Liberals continue to dominate the federal political landscape in Quebec, and a change in leadership of the Bloc Québécois has placed the party on an equal footing with the Conservative Party of Canada in the province, a new poll suggests.
While the distant third-place showing by the NDP in Quebec is bad news for party leader Jagmeet Singh, the six per cent gleaned by Maxime Bernier’s PPC could prove to be problematic for Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives.
Especially since those numbers can only get worse for the Cons and the NDP, now that the media in Quebec are solidly against them, and solidly behind the government's efforts to save SNC-Lavalin.
I could print half a dozen articles to show you what I mean, but this one by Michel Girard in the mass circulation Journal de Montreal, should serve as a good example.
I suggest that the Premier of Quebec should ask the leader of the official opposition, Andrew Scheer, and the leader of the NDP Jagmeet Singh, why they are not supporting SNC-Lavalin's attempt to get a reparation agreement.
In this year of federal elections, it would be relevant for Quebeckers that Mr Scheer and Mr Singh answer this question.
And that, in the only place where ordinary people are interested in this fake scandal, means that Scheer's attempt to win more seats in that province is now doomed to failure. While Jagmeet Singh's NDP is sadly probably doomed to total extinction.
Which in turn means that Justin Trudeau is most probably heading for another majority government...
So ironically the Jody Wilson-Raybault saga will end up hurting the Cons and their new bosom buddies the NDP, more than it ever will the Liberals.
And the universe keeps unfolding as I always thought it would...
