PETERS – Naked MP distracts from Trudeau’s failures on vaccines, opioids

WHEN A LIBERAL MP appeared completely stark naked in a virtual parliament session last week, it was maybe the least embarrassing happening of the week for Canada’s governing party.

In fact, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should probably be thanking Pontiac MP William Amos for nearly accidentally showing all his colleagues his honorable member.

It has distracted everyone from what was a very bad week for the government.

First, the Liberals’ fumbling and bumbling of the vaccine rollout has us drowning in the third wave of COVID-19.

As of the end of Thursday, Canada had vaccinated 24 per cent of its eligible population, lagging behind the United States, yes, but also such world powers as Uruguay, Lithuania and Bhutan.
