PETERS – Campaign all smear and no substance but it’s not too late

JOSHUA KNAAK TWEETED THIS WEEK that this might be the worst election in Canadian history — and he might not be wrong.

It has been vapid and vaccuous, lacking both intelligence and substance.

The rhetoric has been heavily focused on trivialities and stains of character, and has left discussion of policy planks far behind.

The latest, a ridiculous attempt to make Andrew Scheer’s dual citizenship into some kind of scandal.

  1. And the media has happily played along? The media job is to ask and report about the environment, the social policies, the economy. And CFJC of all places has never really done it.
