Was Sun columnist paid off for pro-Trudeau opinion piece?

Objective journalism in Canada’s mainstream media is effectively dead

It’s no secret Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under heavy criticism lately. His popularity began to tank when he went on his disastrous trip to India and, with his constant wardrobe changes, showed the entire world what a fool he is.

Will he and the Liberals win the next election scheduled to be held in October of next year? Lorne Gunter, writing an opinion piece in the Sun newspaper, thinks he will.

I don’t think that Trudeau has Gunter in his pocket. He’s just recognizing that dependents will vote for the government that will keep.goodies flowing.

Maybe Gunter is just being a realist? Let’s review some history…… In the last election, 68% of the population turned out to vote. This was up by 7% from the previous election with the biggest increase being in the age group from 18 to 24 (where a whopping 45% of them voted Liberal). No doubt the prospect of legal marijuana influenced a lot of these voters. The liberals took 184 seats out of a total of 338 i.e. they took 54% of the total number of seats and they did it with only 39% of the vote…. the joys of a multiparty system. So… Scheer the Conservative leader certainly has been less than impressive and to make matters worse, Bernier from Quebec looks like he is going to peel off a bunch of voters who will support his new party. This begs the question… under what circumstances won’t Trudeau get a majority? He might even do it with only 30% of the vote! It would seem that the only way to stop it will be if all the young people are too stoned to go out and vote!

Want to be a powerful ‘journalist’ in the United States?

Kiss democrat butt and they'll send YOU the packets with the good stuff - the stuff your ‘ethics’ won't allow YOU to pay for - but they'll pay to get the good stuff to YOU...

Don't believe the J school crap - it's all about bribes - not in cash but in information. If your little black book is filled with dems who will ‘spill’ in exchange for loyalty YOU will be a top ‘journalist’...

You'll be a rich well respected cop too if you can't remember anything...

And a mayor who lives large if you take cash for ‘looking away’.... it's all the same.
