Ottawa: The situation has become quite controversial in Ottawa as the Liberals aren’t doing enough to answer on China’s interference in Canada’s last two federal elections.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has also refused to answer questions on whether he is aware of the matter and how long he is aware of the matter.
Responding to questions from reporters on Wednesday, Trudeau said that no matter what he can say about it, the questions will keep coming to the minds of Canadians about what we have done and what we have not done about it.
Trudeau said China had not tried to influence the results of the 2019 and 2021 elections, but he was still making a special appointment to prepare a special report in this regard, and the national security agency was tasked with investigating the matter.
But the opposition is not satisfied with Trudeau’s response and say it is the prime minister’s responsibility to answer such questions if they arise. Meanwhile, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, while talking to reporters, said that from the Prime minister’s reply, it seems that he is not taking the matter seriously.
From his answers, it also seems that he is hiding something. In this way, how will Canadians have faith in democracy and our electoral system? That is why there was a demand for a public inquiry into the matter.
Meanwhile, Conservative leader Pierre Marcel Poilievre said the reports are saying something and the Pm Trudeau continues to give a different answer. “Trudeau should stop playing with words and let the truth come out to us,” he said.
