I can only imagine how Stephen Harper must be feeling as he watches his foul legacy slowly being demolished.
But it can’t be pretty, and it must be painful.
Everything he built is being knocked down, and so soon after he was defeated.
Barely two weeks ago he had to look on helplessly as plans for his massive memorial to himself in the heart of Ottawa were scrapped.
And today it was the turn of the Mother Canada or Mother Harper monument to feel the sting of the wrecking ball…

You might think that Lisa Raitt would have learned her lesson, when she put out this big shiny poster about two months ago.
Only to have it greeted with jeers, howls of laughter, and calls that she be arrested for lying like a thief.
Or a Con artist.
But no, sadly it seems she didn’t learn a thing. And she is shameless.
For there she was again yesterday peddling the same foul myth…

If Rona Ambrose doesn’t stop viewing her job as both interim Con Queen AND the new chief spokeswoman for Big Oil, sooner or later somebody is going to tell her she should go pump gas for them.
Because every Question Period, no matter what’s happening in the country and the world, she leads off with some kind of oily question.
One day she’s flogging the Energy East pipeline, the next day she’s raving about a carbon tax.
And the problem for Rona and her Cons is that she isn’t very good at it. Or good at anything.

It’s just as well Stephen Harper didn’t choose to emerge yesterday from the hole where he has been hiding for most of the winter.
For it was Groundhog Day, and he probably would have felt like all those other poor furry creatures awoken so rudely from their hibernation.
Blinking in the bright TV lights, and being asked to explain why his campaign prediction that sunny economic days were ahead, could have been so horribly wrong.
Or even worse for Great Furry leader, having to answer questions about this act of Con bestiality.

It’s hard to believe that Justin Trudeau has now been in power for just over a hundred days.
For although I’m sure it seems longer than that to him, it still seems to me like yesterday that he brought down Stephen Harper’s foul Con regime.
I’m still celebrating.
A lot of people in this country seem to believe that when we defeated Stephen Harper we sent the Con vampire to his political coffin, with a wooden stake through his heart.
But they couldn’t be more wrong.
The monster may be hiding in the shadows, but he’s very much alive, or undead.
And the Cons are still the Harper Party…

Stephen Harper likes to call himself a Christian, and some of his supporters have been known to call him Jesus Harper.
But both claims couldn’t be more absurd or more blasphemous.
Harper is too evil to be a Christian. It is just an act designed to appeal to his monstrous satanic base.
And now it seems that his hollow instrument, the so-called Office of Religious Freedom, is about to be destroyed.

As you know I have been frantically searching for Stephen Harper all over Canada and the United States.
And I’ve even adjusted my
missing wanted poster to reflect how he looked when he was spotted outside a Shake Shack in Las Vegas.
With a weird smile on his face, several days of stubble, and a baseball cap pulled down over his nose.
But so far no luck.
And no sadly this was not him…

As you know I really like this image of Justin slowly but surely demolishing Stephen Harper’s foul legacy.
And today he took another step in that direction.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his job is to look out for Canada’s best interests and not act as a “cheerleader” for various pipeline projects as the previous Conservative government did.
And since now we know for sure that the National Energy Board can’t be trusted to enforce safety or environmental regulations.

It’s shocking how much media attention has focussed on …. no let me start again. It’s totally predictable and boring how the media is wall-to-wall reporting on the supposedly universal outrage over Donald Trump’s Muslim moratorium blather.

No one is so confident in their opinion as an ignorant person.
The screams coming out of the right-wing about the horrors of resettling 25,000 refugees from the bloody Syrian-Iraqi corridor controlled by Daesh, (you may know the group as ISIS or ISIL)…
With the revelations that in the dying days of the campaign a strategy was floated in the CPC war room that would have Harper come out and declare that this would be his last election, it confirms something that I suspected a few weeks ago: that the election had shifted to a referendum on Harper.

Email received October 2, 2015 from Fredericton Liberal Candidate Matt DeCourcey stating Liberal Party supports creation of a National Autism Strategy addressing ABA and IBI access and coverage under Medicare:
|Trudeau: The Fighter|
Let’s start with the view of how Tom Mulcair behaved in the Munk foreign policy debate, from Gerald Caplan:
But if I remove my mask of detachment, I must report that it was not at all the night the NDP needed to recover its faded lead. But there’s still three weeks left – a lifetime in politics. We have the most polarizing and, yes, dangerous, government in Canadian history and we have the NDP positioned to take advantage of it. Yet the NDP focuses its attacks far more on Mr. Trudeau and gives the government almost a free pass. A huge mistake, in my view. And not too late to change, by any means. It ain’t over till it’s over, in baseball or politics.
Each of his debates have proved disappointing, when they were supposed to seal his deal with the electorate. I fear the deal is almost becoming null and void.
This time, there was political blood in it.
Then, close on his heels, came Mulcair.
And Trudeau? Most thought it would be a victory for him if he did not fall flat on his face while walking to the podium; once there, if he did not collapse like a squeaky and ill-tied birthday balloon; and during the one-on-one segments, if he could snatch a small portion of the air time away from the two debatemeisters.
Trudeau has the luck of being underestimated, like Jean Chrétien was, and the intelligence to turn to experienced people the way Pierre Trudeau and Lester B. Pearson did. Perhaps like all Liberals, there is the will to win in his blood. Given his family pedigree, perhaps the will to win is not only powerful but predestined. Yet if he achieves victory, it will not be just because of his last name, but because he works hard, performs well, knows his weaknesses, and plays to his strengths.
Speaking to the Globe and Mail’s editorial board on Wednesday, Mr. Mulroney said he believes Mr. Trudeau is a strong candidate who shouldn’t be underestimated. “He’s a fine young man, he’s going to do well,” he said. “And I’ll tell you: People who underestimate him, they do so at their own peril.”
He said he considered Mr. Trudeau’s father to be a “very tough, able man,” adding, “You know, the apple sometimes doesn’t fall far from the tree. He certainly has some of the grit of his dad, and he’s obviously got, as well, he obviously has some of the qualities required to win an election.”
“Let’s be very clear. My fists will be up. I am a boxer,” he said.
So it is becoming painfully obvious that the CPC is feeling the pressure and are actually considering the possibility that they may not form the next government. Hence, the shorts pants in the PMO have launched a pre-planning campaign to counter such an eventuality. Code named “Operation Impending Doom (OID)”, the strategy is to trot out and associate the […]
