Canadian Politician Says He’ll Sack Ministers Who Attend Davos


Yesterday, Pierre Poilievre was elected leader of the Conservative Party of Canada – and for the first time since he become Prime Minister in 2015 and Stephen Harper stepped down as leader of the Conservatives, Justin Trudeau has a truly formidable political opponent. The 43 year-old populist firebrand, who supported the freedom convoy and opposed vaccine mandates, is a political wunderkind, having first been elected to the Canadian Parliament in 2004, aged 25. Since then he has been re-elected at every subsequent election.

As the Conservative Party of Canada previously booted Derek Sloan for his views on Covid, choosing Poilievre as leader (by a considerable margin) suggests a promising change.
