"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.

You mean twitterverse was busy spreading misinformation about why Trudeau called an election?  Say it isn't so!

say it ain't so - that was you perpetuating said twitterverse... but nice try at a deflection of you spreading bullshyte!
