REGINA, SK: At a town hall meeting held in Saskatchewan, Justin Trudeau took on the questions and addressed to concerns of citizens at one of his town halls, which he has been conducting since taking office.
It’s generous of Trudeau to conduct these town hall meetings in the first place. It’s a true public forum that tests the Prime Minister’s ability to respond to the concerns of Canadian citizens.
Though he hasn’t gotten much better at answering questions directly, as the responses do tend to be a bit wordy and long-winded, it’s admirable to see a sitting Prime Minister do live Q & A’s, knowing full well that responding to questions on the fly might lead to some embarrassing situations.
At this particular town hall, one man had the chutzpah to go up and press Trudeau on his mishandling of the Kinder-Morgan pipeline
“To add insult on top of it, we have this transmission pipeline that was going to be funded 100% by private investors, without a single cent of public money.”
The man is referring to the infamous move by the Trudeau government to purchase the Kinder-Morgan pipeline for $4.5B. A move that shocked many, with few able to defend the purchase.
The crowd applauds in agreement. These types of decisions by the Trudeau government show Canadians that Trudeau has little regard for how frivolously he spends our tax dollars.
Finally the question came that many in the area were surely thinking.
“You can legalize marijuana, but you can’t twin a pipeline?”
The crowd claps and cheers in reaction.
Canadians are tired of mismanagement from a government that more and more see as incompetent.
