Conservatives Challenge Trudeau’s Integrity Over Invite
Conservatives have intensified their rhetoric, asserting that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should resign following the surfacing of an invitation to Waffen-SS veteran Yaroslav Hunka. This invitation has put Trudeau’s integrity under scrutiny, as it contradicts his previous claims of having no knowledge of Hunka’s attendance at the Zelensky reception.
Conservative House Leader Andrew Scheer has labeled Trudeau’s ignorance claim as “absurd,” citing the invitation sent from the Prime Minister’s office. The situation has led to a broader questioning of accountability and transparency within Trudeau’s administration.
Political Fallout and Calls for Accountability
The political fallout from the invitation to Hunka has been significant, with former Speaker Anthony Rota resigning amidst the backlash.

Conservative MPs have accused Trudeau of evading responsibility and maintaining power at the expense of others. The controversy has also sparked a debate about the vetting process for guests at official events and the implications of such oversights.
