Trudeau blames conservative protests and increased turmoil


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that he was to blame the Conservatives for encouraging the movement amid growing cross-country protests against COVID-19 restrictions.

Conservative Prime Minister Candice Bergen said during the February 10 question period that critical infrastructure was limited due to Trudeau’s failure to properly address the issue, to find a solution. I asked if I would meet the opposition leader.
