Ambrose, Conservatives do not ‘speak for Canadians’

I watched with appalling resentment as the interim leader of the official Opposition stood in front of the Parliament building

I watched with appalling resentment as the interim leader of the official Opposition stood in front of the Parliament building, speaking to the press on the Paris attack. While the prime minister is in Turkey talking with other actual leaders of the world, MP Rona Ambrose proposes Opposition support if Trudeau follows her party’s agenda of military action in Syria. She used the term ,“I speak for Canadians” at one point.

Maybe Ms. Ambrose was sleeping or has a short memory but Canada had an election and, without any doubt, Canadians said the Conservatives do not speak for Canada, let alone their temporary leader.

Ms. Ambrose pushes her party’s agenda for the Liberal government to “immediately” reverse its decision to pull fighter jets from the U.S.-led bombing mission against ISIS as a solution to problems to which she has little understanding.

I didn’t vote Mr. Trudeau’s party but Canada did, and this is a democracy and our prime minister speaks on behalf of Canadians; not MP Ambrose nor her party. They or she should wait until the next election period to allude to speaking for Canadians, and hope for a win. This is not that time.
