I've been away, but it seemed to me like only yesterday that Pierre Poilievre shocked a lot of Canadians, by solemnly declaring that he was really a nice guy.
He claimed that he didn't like all those F**K Trudeau flags, had no time for "rage," and seemed to suggest he might actually stop demonizing the Prime Minister as he has on a daily basis, for what seems like forever.
So I must admit that at first I was stunned. Could the grubby far-right rage farmer really be trying to turn over a new leaf? It seemed too good to be true.
And sadly it was.
