THUNDER BAY – NEWS – Thank you for participating in our annual April Fool’s gag.
Prime Minister Harper has caught almost everyone by surprise this morning. The Prime Minister made a very early morning trip to the Governor General and just like that, Canadians are headed to the polls in thirty-eight days.
Quietly this morning, accompanied by his son, the Prime Minister made the short trip to Rideau Hall.
Opposition leader Tom Mulcair has gone on the political offensive against the Conservatives for what the NDP leader says is breaking his promise of an October election.
“After the complaints from the New Democrats of some Government Ministers not being in the House of Commons for the vote on extending the mission against ISIS,” stated the Prime Minister, “I decided that Canadians need a clear choice, and the Conservatives need a mandate from Canadians”.
The move caught Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau by surprise. Trudeau was planning a short trip to Cuba with his family for the Easter Long Weekend. In a statement issued by the Liberal Party, Mr. Trudeau said, “The Liberals are ready”.
Trudeau says “This election will be about the kind of future Canadians want. National security and threats of domestic terrorism are deeply concerning to Canadians, and it’s the responsibility of the government to ensure that law enforcement and intelligence agencies have the tools needed to keep Canadians safe.”
With the election called for May 9th, Canadians will now get the choice at the polls.
