Big word on twitter has been there were 20!  Nobody can explain though what they were.
Whaaa??? That's all team Trudeau has been repeating ad naseaum.  If you want more, don't hesitate to ask.

"team Trudeau"??? LOL! I certainly don't recall any Liberal MPs, cabinet ministers or PM Trudeau mentioning non-confidence votes as a driver behind the election call... notwithstanding that 20 number seems a tad high in relation to the requirement that only 'money bills' carry the potential for non-confidence. But really, c'mon, no matter how many there actually were, none reached an actual non-confidence status to bring the government down as either the NDP or BQ (or both) had been repeatedly propping up the government to actually avoid non-confidence. And other than a roll-call vote what "bother" is a non-confidence vote... so why even mention it? Your "team Trudeau" tag to those twitter links is hilarious! But good on ya for trotting them out - apparently you thought you found a real gem! LOL!

but thanks for highlighting this again - I've mentioned it a few times in the past: the CPC/O'Toole were not hesitant in voting non-confidence... the most recent profiled instance, as I recall, was the April budget. You know, where O'Toole was quite ready to, once again, try to bring the government down and force a, wait for it... wait for it... a $600 million dollar pandemic election! The number of times O'Toole nattered on about, "$600 million dollars in a pandemic election" was nauseating - he was like a freakin' squawking parrot, over & over & over again.
