You’re 74 years old. I think it would have been well past time for you to know better. SorryNotSorry True Liberal Fire the racist! Liberals = racists! Apologizes for telling the truth..Political correctness wins again.. Should have known? BS... she did know, she's just sorry she got called out on it. It's ok. Trudeau told some children that he's stupid for painting himself all black . That should apply to stupid Judy as well.
No more liberal apologies accepted. Was it your blindspot Judy? Or is it blackward? Should have know better and .... not lied. James999 “Should have known...” Beyond obvious. Sad stuff. Idiot Who else has said that? She lied but the apology doesn't mention that. Another Liberal cultist defends racist blackface. It backfires and she is forced to apologize. What is wrong with them? cdnpoli elxn43
Wow, the liberals a racist! Ouch...she should also apologize for being part of a party that is led by JustinTrudeau Bye Felicia! So should have Trudeau... at 30 years old! Stop making excuses for this nincompoop! How's That Hypocrisy Working Out For Ya idiotliberal RESIGN . You are nothing but a liberal bigot and the liberal party has a lot of them.
so did she lie? did she actually talk to black people who liked Trudeau more for wearing blackface... In fairness to Judy Sgro, we all know what happens to female MPs who don't show proper deference and blind loyalty to their leader, no matter what the offence. Let's hear it for our benevolent PM Talcum X PMTalcumX
What a nut case
Canadian pot is getting cheaper — but black market still offers best dealsGram of cannabis on legal market costs almost twice as much Legal and illegal comes from the same source. No news. Just the Gov. Doesn't know it. and perhaps the best pot__ And it always will, because the black market, the market that really knows what it's doing with regard to this particular product, will never have to deal with regulatory compliance, licensing, retail overhead, and taxation issues... and it already has all the customers!
Oprah to give $13M more for aid at black collegeOprah Winfrey says she's giving $13 million to increase a scholarship endowment at a historically black college. U stole my heart’s kane. She looking for a story or to promote something? Is there a white college Asian college? Indigenous college? This seems segregated to have a Black college.

Liberals face tough battle over wallets in key part of Ontario that will decide Trudeau’s fateThe sprawling suburbs around Toronto the Liberals swept in 2015 are turning to the Conservatives as the cost of living soars Things must be going ok, they’re all out of BlackfaceTrudeau pins. Last paragraph in your article quotes 20 year old Emma Hamilton who is undecided on where to turn. The odds are likely she stays home on Oct 21. Emma is a bell weather. If she doesn't vote the LPC is going to fare poorly. The silver lining in that is they get to fire Trudeau. We only vote with our wallets. More money in my pocket is my sole priority. I don’t care about anything else.
