Maclean’s on the Hill: Trudeau turfs two MPs, Del Mastro resigns

  1. I agree with what Star reporter Susan Delacourt says, ” I don’t get the keep-it-quiet thing ” . Besides if Trudeau had to consult with the Two who claimed they were outed, than Trudeau would have been accused of a cover-up for that, cover-up was all over this, if someone didn’t bust this story wide open. Why isn’t anyone questioning Tom’s leadership here, he was the one sitting on the cover-up, not Trudeau. He(Tom)has been withholding this info for more than a year, so what was he(Tom) doing with this info while he has been sitting on it for that long. Its starting to look like Tom is trying to be the NDPs lawyer and leader at the same time. this story doesn’t stop with the Grits and Dippers, Lisa Raitt of the con party thought it was important for her to have a say over the past few days, so I think there is more in the closet with the cons than they want Canadians to think, It’s just a matter of time.
