Uncoordinated Trudeau, Scheer, and Singh give post-election speeches at same time

If this is what a coordinated effort between minority parties look like, the coming years don’t look promising.

On stage in their respective ridings, the three party leaders were set to give their post-election speeches. Except none of their camps coordinated with each other to figure out the speaking order.

Jagmeet Singh began in Burnaby South. Then before he was finished, Andrew Scheer appeared in Regina-Qu’Appelle and began. Then, almost immediately, Justin Trudeau went on stage in Papineau.

It was a gong show for broadcast media. And we all noticed.

Note: it’s customary for the winner to go last.
