    Yeah, I'm not necessarily expecting anything nefarious. But something about it doesn't sit right with me.

    I just found it funny when listening to it today. In his statement last night he didn't deny anything took place just said something about "Well, that wasn't what I thought was happening."

    It's also kind of funny that they're thinking of throwing her out of the party for doing what we should expect our elected officials to do. Albeit, she could have done more, sooner but easier said than done.

    More than likely he'll throw a lower staffer under the bus and skate on this using deniability.

    He's already been convicted on ethic breaches, so it's not hard to believe that he did this too.

    The guy honestly believes he is above rules and laws and behaves as such.

    I should note that Scheer's request for resignation is legit.

    Trudeau cannot command leadership of this country as it's leader with any shred of ethical decency anymore.

    He ousted people in his party and denounced others for #meetoo accusations yet when one was leveled against him for groping a woman, he said, "I don't recall any negative interactions" despite demanding that any #meetoo accusation had to be believed and followed up on.

    He was convicted of ethics breaches, the first sitting PM ever to have a conviction, and admitted he had done these 2 times previously to being caught.

    Now this scandal.

    They all reek of the same thing. A smug, entitled view that he is above the law, or that these rules apply to everyone but him. It's this pattern of behavior that should be the reason he resigns. But it's this exact trait that will be the reason he won't.

    I'm really curious to see what Butts says today. If he calls JWR a liar it will only go over well with party die hard because no one else will believe him and if he admits to it all JT needs to seriously look at resigning.

    Butts and Telford should already be in jail for what they did to Ontario.

    Just hiring them is cause to resign.
