The first debate during the 2019 federal election has finished and one person was notably absent.

It wasn’t Stephen Harper. He isn’t running this time. It’s Justin Trudeau who actually chickened out of the debate.

Instead of taking part in the democratic process, the Prime Minister chose to spend the day in Edmonton with a candidate’s campaign, likely attempting to provide as little time for the opposition to criticize the current government’s scandal-filled track record, which currently includes an RCMP inquiry around the SNC-Lavalin affair.

Trudeau’s decision to be a chicken and skip the debate stood in stark contrast to the 2015 election when he called out the previous Prime Minister out for skipping some debates.

We’re independent and can’t be cancelled. The establishment media is increasingly dedicated to divisive cancel culture, corporate wokeism, and political correctness, all while covering up corruption from the corridors of power. The need for fact-based journalism and thoughtful analysis has never been greater. When you support The Post Millennial, you support freedom of the press at a time when it's under direct attack.
