Bell: Trudeau, why did you even come to Calgary?

3 453 6577

Really a case of big hat, no cattle.

You’d find more substance in an old Seinfeld script than in the repeated tiresome talking points of Trudeau while he rolled out his shtick to Calgary at the boiling point.

In fact, the only thing of substance this day are the pro-pipeline protesters outside Calgary’s Hyatt Regency.

Them and all the cops and all the security guards inside the hotel, an impressive offensive line for the prime minister who was speaking to a business crowd in a ballroom up a couple floors.

They weren’t giving him the love.

We have the right to be angry.

Still no pipeline in the ground while we still pay a carbon tax. Selling our oil at bargain basement prices. High unemployment. One in four downtown offices empty. Investment drying up.

Up at the hotel podium, Trudeau says he feels our frustration and understands our anxiety.

The line is delivered but no one believes him. It’s simply not good acting.

After he speaks, you can’t pin the prime minister down at the question-and-answer session.

Trudeau says he’s working to get the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built.

How often........
