So if there was a knockout punch Monday night, that was it, delivered by Trudeau unto Trudeau, always delicious to see.

There may not have been a super obvious winner — though five of the leaders had their moments — but there sure was a single clear loser.
That would be the current prime minister.

It was Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer’s turn — the format of the leaders debate was bizarre and complex, at least to my tiny mind — to ask any of the other leaders a single question, whereupon the recipient of the question got a minute to answer and then in turn, chosen randomly, the others yelled over one another.

Scheer immediately turned to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.

Scheer pointed out that he’d broken ethics rules twice, interfered with an ongoing criminal investigation (SNC-Lavalin and the full-court press Trudeau, a few of his key henchmen and staffers in the PCO and PMO, put on former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould) and asked, “When did you decide the rules don’t apply to you?”

Trudeau first had the gall to repeat his mantra from the height of the SNC imbroglio: “The role of the PM is to stand up for Canadian jobs.”
Scheer snapped, reminded him “you said the allegations in the Globe and Mail were false,” and Trudeau seriously responded, “They were false.”

No, sir, they weren’t.
