How stupid was that.
Fact checking has always been around to some degree, but it shifted into high gear when Trump was elected, and for obvious reasons.

Daniel Dale comes to mind. Fact checked Trump for years.

Fact checkers couldn’t check fast enough when Trump decided to run…good grief. Every sentence he uttered had to be checked he was so prolific. If he said it was sunny out you had to double check.

Nearly half of Canadians support banning surgery and hormones for trans kids: exclusive poll

Similar rates of opposition (42 per cent) were registered for puberty blockers and hormone therapies for children aged 15 and under, apart from those who have already begun the intervention. Slightly over a quarter (26 per cent) of Canadians felt that such medical interventions, when paired with parental consent, were appropriate. Only 11 per cent supported access to such care without any parental oversight.

Justin and the NDP representing that 11% "fringe minority with unacceptable views".....

Truth, lies and emissions caps

"He might be trailing in the polls and on his way to an epic electoral defeat, but Justin Trudeau isn’t done fighting just yet. During his Wednesday interview on Real Talk with Ryan Jespersen, the prime minister threw a few well-placed jabs in the direction of Alberta’s perpetually pugilistic provincial government. “The world is changing,” he said, “and it’s not a plot by eastern *bleep*. The world is looking at net zero right now, and Alberta can be part of that. But right-wing ideology is getting in the way of Alberta’s success.”

The provincial government, in other words, needs to get out of the way of Alberta’s businesses. If this was intended to provoke Premier Danielle Smith, well, mission accomplished. She fired back with a rant on social media that accused Trudeau of describing Albertans as “fools” (he didn’t) and whined about him not contacting her before visiting the province (he did). At no point did she even attempt to engage with the points he actually made in his interview."

This is the type of far left propaganda we must rid the country of. Really, all coming from a guy that hasn't been able to apply a single bit of success to all his own claims yet applies such pathetic statements against others or support any of his virtue signaling policy statements.
Its beyond being hypocritical. Trudeau's government cannot not offer one bit of ability or support to his own claims on issue's and then uses words and statements against others.
Trudeau, the reason you have failed is because your far too busy looking at the other as your baseline for trying to access success and be of any credit to the issue's facing us all.
Be a man, stand up for yourself, although you had 8 yrs to do that.

He’s a far cry from trailing in the polls , he’s DONE . As far as an eastern plot goes this is nothing new for the east as they drain resources from the cash cow west . In case you haven’t paid attention it’s been ongoing since 1914.

it’s about Steven Guilbeault’s lifelong quest to kill off Alberta’s oil and gas industry. “The oil and gas [emissions] cap may not be achievable and this federal government may even lose the next election before it can be implemented. But by then, the damage will already be done. Investors will look at Canada and decide to take their money and their investments elsewhere.”

It clearly is a term with out any reference or connection to the virtue signaling claim of it either. Which is clearly my usage of it. Like the old clear science proven definition of man or woman. Or Woke, all completely redefined by the liberalist claiming party of canada. Its sarcasm, get it.
