NEW | 'Leadership matters,' Trudeau says of Alberta's COVID-19 crisis

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says while he's not in the position to judge Alberta's approach to containing the spread of COVID-19, the crisis there is proof that 'leadership matters.' He said he has spoken with the Clerk of the Privy Council to ensure the province’s needs are met as it battles the fourth wave.

Don Martin: The Liberal and Conservative campaigns limp out of the starting gate

The Sept. 20 federal election is not necessary, has no coherent rationale to justify Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s $500-million bid for a majority mandate and, worst of all, puts the federal government on hold at the precise moment when a fourth COVID-19 wave will hit the youngest the hardest, Don Martin writes in his exclusive column for CTVNews.ca.
