Pierre Poilievre held a rally last night in London, Ontario. About 15 minutes in, he was interrupted with chants of “ceasefire now” and “free Palestine.”

UPDATE: Some people have asked for subtitles because they can’t make out what Pierre said. So I did my best:
“You made your point. You made your point. Nobody came here to listen to you scream. You made your point. I’ve heard all you had to say. I’ve heard all you had to say.
Participate in the event. Participate, or not. Hit the road.”
Pierre responds by chanting “Axe the tax” to drown out the hecklers and then tells them to ‘hit the road.’ As tMayor_McCheese points out, “right after talking about the importance of having a government that listens to the people.”
At the time of writing this, the video of last night’s rally has not been uploaded to his YouTube channel.
(The press conference that he just held has already been uploaded.)
I’m sure tMayor_McCheese’s video will get a lot of attention. However, I want to keep the focus on Poilievre and his lying about the size of his crowds.
Pierre Poilievre put out this ‘X’ to show everyone how MASSIVE the crowd was at his rally in London, Ontario.
Massive turnout on a Thursday night in London, Ontario, with a clear message for Trudeau:

I responded with this:
That is PATHETIC.

Then, I decided to shed some light on the situation to get a better picture.
So we go from this:
And from this:
With a shallow depth of field and the pic being so dark it looks like the “Massive” crowd just fades away into the background. Well, at least Pierre’s photographer is really doing the best with what they have to work with, eh?
In the video, you can see how brightly lit the room was. Plus, the camera pans around the room, showing how small the crowd and venue are. Yet PP only puts out those carefully framed, dark photos and says it was a MASSIVE turnout.
So why didn’t Poilievre post the video on his YT channel?
They don’t want to show a video of Poilievre being heckled. No no! That’s just for Prime Minister Trudeau. Poilievre’s tightly controlled campaign must show him as being adored by the masses wherever he goes. Plus, there’s also how poorly he handled the hecklers by immediately chanting his slogan “AXE THE TAX” over “ceasefire now” and “free Palestine.”
And then, as I’ve pointed out here, I think the most important reason to Poilievre and his ego is that the video clearly shows that this was not a “massive” turnout for a venue in Southwestern Ontario.
Pierre Poilievre cheated to become the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.
Pierre Poilievre won’t get his proper security clearance.
Pierre Poilievre lies about the size of the crowds at his “campaign” rallies.
Pierre Poilievre is a fake, a phony and a fraud.
WOW, Pierre. In London. THIS is the best you could do?
Shouldn’t you have booked a MASSIVE venue in Southwestern Ontario knowing you could fill it?
You didn’t because you knew you couldn’t.
