LETTER: Trudeau is nothing but an ‘embarrassing mess’

Perhaps Strahl critic should get his own column, says letter writer

Re: “Strahl’s leader choices shift with the wind,” Progress Letters, March 18, 2022.

I was thinking perhaps The Progress should consider giving Wayne Underhill his own column. It seems like at least once a month there’s a long letter from Mr. Underhill ranting on about his quite apparent hatred for our duly elected, by a vast majority of 10,000 to 15,000 votes, Member of Parliament Mark Strahl.

I suspect if Mr. Strahl bought a Starbucks instead of a Tim Hortons coffee Mr. Underhill would go into a rage about Mr. Strahl’s “anti-Canadian” spending.

“He forgets that the cogent (definition: clear, logical, and convincing) policy by the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) was among the chief reasons for its defeat in recent elections.”

This is incorrect. In the popular vote the CPC won by 1.1 per cent over the Liberals. What won the election for our “dear leader” Mr. Justin Trudeau was, as usual, the mass of seats in Montreal and the Greater Toronto Area. (Oddly enough I was just in Toronto centre for two weeks in September post election and nobody I asked admitted to voting Liberal. In fact, to a person, everyone was quite rude in their response regarding Mr. Trudeau.)

Perhaps the CPC might nominate Leslyn Lewis for its new Leader. Mr. Trudeau would be hard pressed to call her a “racist, misogynistic, etc., etc.” That would leave him even more of a stumbling, stuttering, embarrassing mess than he already is.
