I watched this yesterday, LD. Poilievre has become tiresomely predictable in his bobbing, weaving, and outright lying.
Lorne, as a public servant I took a course "how to deal with media" and it was taught how to evade a question if you don't want to answer. It looks Poilievre got A+ in that course. He is indeed expert at the game.
This link was a video posted in November 2012 of Poilievregiving the identical off-topic answer to 7 different questions. Global pulled it some time before Poilievre became Minister of Democratic Reform.
Alison, thank you for the link.
Alison, I was able to get the written story about Poilievre dodge-ball but not the video for some reason.
