Nice whatabout-ism…O’Toole wasn’t even an MP then. Kenney is the Alberta premier, so if you have an issue with him or the Government before O’Toole, take it up with him, or Evil Harper.It wouldn’t have been. This didn’t become a front page issue until a crisis happened. When was the last time O’toole mentioned it before all of this? Not to mention the tighter restrictions the CPC had in place as to who could come to Canada.
this from 2012. And take a close look at Kenney’s statement on Canada not having any obligation to anyone working with Canada after 2012.
politicians are pretty much the same regardless of them being RED or BLUE. I have no doubt we’d be in the same boat right now if team blue was in charge.
So yes, I agree with Dimsum’s cynicism.
For O’Toole, both as a cabinet minister and an opposition member, he demonstrably worked to bring Afghan interpreters to Canada, so that’s his record.
So in the political world of splitting hairs, yes, that makes O’Toole fundamentally better than Trudeau. O’Toole was pushing for Afghan terps early into the TB operations…quite the opposite from the laconic, dragging, dithering, poll-driven ways of Trudeau & Co.
