Very fishy. When politicos suddenly leave to “spend more time with their family” it usually means there is some huge monumental scandal about to hit them, or the government.

With what the lieberals did to Ontario and now Canada, I would be embarrassed and a fool to be lieberal or voting for them to destroy the country.
