Trouble in the Political Playground

I think the one thing that bothers me most about the whole SNC Lavalin scandal is the way our political leaders are behaving.

On one side we have Conservative leader Andrew Scheer acting like that snot nosed little brat we all hated in elementary school who is always running and tattling to the teacher about anything anyone does wrong in class.

“Teacher! Teacher! Did you see what Justin did? He’s being bad! Justin is a very bad boy! Bad Justin! Bad! Did you see him, teacher? Did you? Are you going to punish Justin? I think you should punish him. I think you should expel him. He is a very bad boy. Not like me. I’m a good boy. Right teacher?

Is it wrong that I have a powerful urge to give him a wedgie?

Then there is Prime Minister Trudeau, who is behaving just like the proverbial kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar, trying to talk his way out of it with crumbs all over his shirt front.

“No, of course I wasn’t doing anything wrong. Why would you say that? Why is everyone blaming me? I didn’t do it! I didn’t! I didn’t!  I didn’t do it, but if I did, I have a perfectly good excuse. I was starving. But I still didn’t do it!

What I would like would be to have the leaders of our country conducting themselves like adults and not seven year olds. I understand that acting like schoolchildren is still an improvement over the toddler running the government to the south of us, but I have this horrible feeling that is where we are heading.  We need to turn this around before we trade the schoolyard for the playpen.  Are there any adults out there interested in the position of leader of Canada?
