WATCH: Trudeau Liberals blame Stephen Harper’s Conservatives for Canadians’ energy woes

Oct 18, 2022 | Political News

During Question Period on Tuesday, Liberal environment minister Steven Guilbeault lamented what he referred to as “energy poverty,” in response to the opposition pointing out that Canadians are bracing for the winter months as they continue to deal with rising energy costs.

Instead of explaining why his Liberal colleagues hadn't been able to fix the problem during their seven years in power, Guilbeault placed the blame on the Liberals' favourite scapegoat, Stephen Harper, suggesting that nearly 10 years of Conservative leadership from 2006 to 2015 put the country in the position it's in now.
