Kelly McParland: Election threat shows Trudeau doesn’t like being questioned — on anything


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doesn’t like his actions being questioned. He doesn’t like it from Parliament, he doesn’t like it from the opposition, he doesn’t like it during question period. He doesn’t like it from his own caucus, he doesn’t like it from his cabinet ministers, he doesn’t like it from Commons committees. He just doesn’t like it — get it? He seems to take it personally. He gets very indignant, whether the questions are about his personal actions, those of his family or those of his government. As he has made clear this week — House Leader Pablo Rodriguez said it in so many words — he views questions about his decisions as a declaration of a lack of confidence in the government, and thus justification to threaten to send the country into an expensive and disruptive election in the middle of a pandemic.
