And my message tonight is that the strength of our democracy is not only measured by the ballots we cast, but also by how we move forward after their counting. Now, there are still a number of really close races, so we don’t know for sure how many more Conservatives Canadians will send to Ottawa tonight, but what we do know is that after…

Trudeau slammed for blackface during Canadian leadership debate

Trudeau slammed for blackface during Canadian leadership debate

Justin Trudeau only pretends to stand up for Canada, you know. He’s very good at pretending things. He can’t even remember how many times he put blackface on because the fact of the matter is, he’s always wearing a mask.
