Justin Trudeau is an idiot.

What on Earth would compel you to sink to his level and think it was a good idea?

Saying that you're going to make his office a porta-potty? Did you lose a bet?

Meh. I mean at least he’s showing some signs of a personality rather than the last few bags of milk the CPC’s have had. I just think his delivery was all wrong.

So I have bias glasses, but I picked up on that too, Erin seemed genuine with a human operating his body, not a robot in a skin suit... a small improvement over Scheer

It's sad that is how deep into the bottom of the barrel we have to reach to find a positive as someone who wants to see him succeed.

What a stupid video.

Looks like I now have a seat on the O'Toole is a fool bus. I've seen enough politicians to know that this guy is no more genuine than Justin. Worse yet is that he's tone deaf and just dumb.

I fully believe Erin was being genuine in this video, I stand by my post, even if puts me on the fool bus.

He actually thought his stupid video was indeed funny. His laugh was real.

As stupid as that makes him look.

I mean conservative humour tends to be pretty lame and cringey, so I we shouldn't be too surprised if he legitimately thought this was funny.

Its like watching a 5-year-old try and tell a knock-knock joke.

Canada's new top military commander Art McDonald has voluntarily stepped aside as he is investigated by the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service on unspecified allegations.
Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan posted a statement just after 11 p.m. Wednesday stating he was informed of the situation and takes allegations of misconduct seriously.
Sajjan said he continues to take strong action on any allegation of misconduct that is brought forward "no matter the rank, no matter the position."

Quote:
McDonald was appointed to the role on Dec. 23, and he assumed command on Jan. 14, marking the official transfer of command of the Canadian Armed Forces from Vance to McDonald.

She's a rising star in our current CPC...

God that gives a dismal perspective for the CPC future.

You know, I don’t care about stupid Porta pottie jokes, or Justin in blackface 20 years ago, or even the dumb politicking about the vaccine rollout. I care about what they actually do, or say they or going to do when in power.

It’s for Trudeau’s actual actions and verifiable policy history that I want him gone, and someone else deserves a chance to drive the bus. I don’t get wrapped up in a bunch of stupid meaningless stuff that you can smear on all the different parties and their candidates. I care about what the actually have done (or say they will do).

I don't agree.

I agree that policy matters more, but how they act is also important to me and part of the equation.

For example:
Part of the reason I voted against Harper because I felt he was actively trying to divide Canada demonize Canadians, which in the long run would hurt us more than JT policies.

Now I voted for Scheer (via my local MP of course), who I disliked, but in this case policy was more important to me

Lastly, the vaccine roll out is policy. It is one of the most important policy issues JT has faced- people are dying.

Hey, I’d like to have a perfect candidate who thinks the way I do, but it hasn’t happened yet in my lifetime.

So to get wrapped up in the mundane outrage du jour of whatever party I want to dislike today, I’ve moved past that. I focus on who is going to make my country better tomorrow and what actual policy and legislative choices they make (or say they will make). Trudeau’s an idiot by that measure to me. Stupid blackface or dancing around in costume in India falls into the category of things that don’t really matter all that much.

As for the vaccine, of course it is important, and I didn’t mean that it wasn’t. I meant that most of the outrage over the governments handling of it is a combination of insincere and ill informed. I think overall, for as much as I dislike the current liberal government on a great many things, vaccine procurement has generally been very good. Most of the negative press and complaints are just politicking, as the Cons try to make the liberals look bad, as that is what our system encourages. A person might even say it is the oppositions job, in their quest to hold the government to account. But they have been complaining about things that haven’t happened yet, and which is generally unsupported by current evidence.

That’s the stuff that doesn’t matter to me. What matters is what the governments actual actions are, and have been, not what they might be in someone’s dreamed up scenario.

When I was thinking about it, the most disconcerting thing is his deputy, who is the second in command wasn't appointed to replace him. It has to make me wonder if there's even more fire here.


DND is a freaking mess, Vance was a nightmare of terrible and dishonesty. The fighter jet replacement is a mess, the ship building file is a mess, We are severely down in terms of recruiting. It feels like a department that's out of control.

To me, I'm in a political desert.

All of the political parties are like terrible hockey teams badly in need of a tear down and rebuild.

The leadership in the Liberal Party to me is awful. I can't vote for Trudeau, he's a snake, and bumbles nearly every file he touches. Freeland to me is awful, and putting her in finance is a mistake. Catherine McKenna is a snake. Saijan is incompetent, O'Regan is a prime example of the Peter Principle. Anyone that's the least bit competent is sitting in the back bench or in minor positions and surpressed.

The Cons have completely bumbled any good will that O'Toole had at the start. He's been un impressive. The ones that I do like are completely un electable as a Prime Minister, and the best ones have left the party.

The BDP needs to dump Singh, But I wouldn't vote for them anyways.



Don't get me started on Maxime and the PPC. I was duped by him during the Conservative Leadership Campaign, and he's turned out to be completely insane.


So what's a guy like me to do? I believe voting is important, its one of the biggest expressions of our political freedom. However I sit in a riding where its unlikely that the Conservative candidate is going to be bounced, plus I really like her, so I'll likely park my vote based on the MP and the other parties will likely run place holder candidates that won't be all that active in the next election.

Canada's political parties are all in the toilet. I don't know if we're failing to deliver leadership development, or if the average Canadian has said nope to a career in politics, which leaves the slate occupied by political theorists with very little real world experience.

Some day it makes me with that Gorgo the Planetary annihilator will finally notice our planet and do his thing.
