Dear Straws: we are grasping at you.
“These latest allegations are troubling. Our Government does not condone illegal drug use, especially by elected officials while in office, including Justin Trudeau. We’ll continue to work with all levels of government on shared priorities, such as jobs and economic growth. That includes working with mayors and city councils, including the Mayor of Toronto and Toronto City Council,” MacDonald, Mr. Harper’s top spokesman, said in the statement.”
Seriously? You found a way to compare the actions of the Horror of Hogtown to JT?
Guess the staffers have checked out the polling on three of the four by elections and have seen that it ain’t looking too good.

If you are approached by anyone resembling a reporter, blogger, Liberal, New Democrat, Green, environmentalist, Public Servant, First Nation member, telecom industry employee, scientist or Maude Barlow, please run away screaming, hands over ears, and yelling “LALALALALALA!” as loudly as possible. One of our keen, young comm staffers will intervene.

There needs to be a discussion on whether he should resign.
It’s that simple. (23)
So. There is this website that the Ontario Liberals have set up called “Common Ground” that is designed to elicit comments from Ontarians on new policy directions. This is not a bad idea. But good ideas can be hijacked by special interests who would clearly be positively or negatively affected by a certain proposed policy. Such is the case with the idea called Merging the Public and Catholic School Boards.
Anyone who has passed through this blog in the past may have wandered by a post(s) where I have derided Ontario’s two Board system as discriminatory and wasteful. So, I checked this idea about a week ago after hearing it mentioned on CBC Radio one morning. Happily, and not unexpectedly, the positive response (you get to vote for an idea either positively or negatively) was through the roof. This idea had one of the biggest positive uptakes only a week ago and now look at what’s happened.
I’d LOVE it if someone went public with the email that surely went out to Catholic Boards, the teachers and the unions urging members to go on-line and vote against this idea whose time has come. But no matter, this government has been clear that it has no interest in changing Ontario’s wasteful and discriminatory dual board system.
… and then there are Conservative Party of Canada lies and misrepresentations! And the latter category can contain some whoppers!!!
This is what has me pissed off:
Please find below a statement from the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.
Yesterday we learned that Justin Trudeau’s Chief Financial Officer and senior Liberal advisor Chuck Rifici has plans to open a massive, medicinal marijuana operation in rural Ontario, while the Liberal Leader champions marijuana legalization. Minister Blaney issued the following statement on Justin Trudeau’s top priority:
“Under Stephen Harper’s strong leadership, Canada has added more than one million net new jobs since the recession.
“Meanwhile, with absolutely no economic policy, Justin Trudeau’s highest priority remains legalizing marijuana.”
“While the Liberals continue to push for policies that would make marijuana more accessible to children, we’ve been focused on what matters most to Canadians – the economy.
“Our plan is to create more jobs – their plan is to push pot.”
“Canadians deserve to know why Justin Trudeau wants to make it easier for children to access drugs it in their communities.”
No let’s get this straight. This is a business proposal that is being made as a direct result of legislative changes made by the CONSERVATIVE government earlier this year!
The Mayor of Smith Falls is pretty happy about the prospect of new jobs in this town that was hard hit when the Hershey’s plant closed down a few years back.
And how exactly is this going to make it easier for kids to get high? Does the Con attackbot suggest that there will be a retail outlet set up beside the local high school? Or that free samples will be given to children on class tours?
Or maybe the dear MP is against his own government’s legislation? If so, he should let his boss know.
Seriously, what are the Cons smoking? That has to be the reason why they spout such utter trash.
Wow. Stop the presses!
Big freaking deal.
So Steve thinks that the honest admission of Justin T that he smoked some weed a few years ago is enough of a reason to declare the leader of the LPC as unfit to be PM.
Yet, according to Mr. Harper, a PM who:
- appoints crooks and liars to the Senate
- prorogues Parliament THREE times for no good reason but to avoid being questioned in the House about questionable CPC activities
- wanted to spy on Canadians’ online activities without a legal warrant
- continues to pour millions into bogus Economic inAction Plan advertising
- has taken Canada from a surplus to a deficit budgetary position in a very short time
- is vilified internationally because of his position on the environment
- grossly mismanaged an important military procurement file
- slashes services to Afghanistan vets as they come back form active duty
- etc, etc ad nauseum…
is QUITE fit to be PM…
Stephen Harper. He’s clearly not up to the job. (54)
… I think I’ll prorogue work!
Thanks Prime Minister Harper! Way to show leadership and initiative! I am taking your lead and proroguing until October.
And like you Parliamentarians, I’ll continue to be paid, right? (65)
