Prime Minister doesn’t answer tough questions: letter

Wetaskiwin writer suspects carbon tax trip just for re-election purposes

Dear editor,

When asked to comment on his carbon tax…Trudeau stated, “Well, the rain falls mainly on the plain.”

No surprise there ‘cause we all know that Justin never answers a question!

However, he did actually comment on the environment. He states, “I don’t think that it should be free to pollute!” Shockingly, this actually makes sense.

So he’s about to take his stance on the carbon tax on the road as he tries to get re-elected in October of 2019. Good luck with that one.

However, word has it he’s so excited and sure that he’ll be re-elected that he’s asked Rachel Notley to do a duet with him. Wonder if they’ll re-hash a Judds tune?

Whatever he comes up with should be a smash hit! Thanks for listening!
