With Trudeau afraid of losing power and losing votes to the Greens, Scheer is accurately pointing out how suspect the timing is.
Justin Trudeau is trying to push a climate ’emergency’ motion.
It’s obviously not a coincidence that the ’emergency’ declaration comes after the Liberals got crushed in a recent BC byelection which was won by the Green Party.
Both Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh appear to be panicking, with Singh saying Canada can’t use fossil fuels “at all,” and Trudeau bring up the ’emergency.’
In response, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has accurately pointed out that what Trudeau is really worried about is the ‘political emergency’ he’s facing.
“Speaking after caucus, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is asked re govt motion to declare climate emergency; says is “symbolic gesture that will do nothing to actually reduce emissions” & says PM is “desperately trying to change the channel” amid “political emergency”

Trudeau is desperate.
His poll numbers are terrible.
His popularity has collapsed.
He faces endless scandals.
So, when politicians like Trudeau get desperate they try to change the conversation, and that’s exactly what he’s attempting to do.
Unfortunately for him, with the recent revelation that Ontario Liberal MPs listed the environment way back at 7th most important issue, it seems even his own colleagues aren’t buying into his BS.
