Much effort has been exerted lately to link Canada’s Conservatives and upstart People’s Party to the white nationalist fringe. Yet the only party that has truly struggled with clear and overt anti-Semitism within its ranks are May’s Greens.

Dr Randall Pewarchuk will be the federal conservative candidate for Esquimalt-saanich-sooke. He's a dentist in Langford.

3 and 4 are immaterial without 1 and 2. Unless you are suggesting either:

JWR and Phillpot run and get elected as independents, but then decide to support the Green platform; or

Some currently unknown Green candidate gets elected and turns out to hold the balance of power in a divided Parliament.

Those might be amusing speculations but are too far fetched to take seriously.

And even in BC where they hold the balance of power they can't do much with it. So the chances of any Green policies experiencing a live birth are vanishingly remote.

 

The scenario I posited even made the National Post! https://nationalpost...02-e70e0d727f73

from the conservative party today:

 

 

 

 

During this witch-hunt against Mark Norman, we found out that the government had coached witnesses, used codenames in email exchanges to avoid access to information requests, and withheld the key documents that eventually exonerated Norman. 

 

This politically motivated prosecution – or rather persecution – of Mark Norman has impacted his family and his career, and the least the government owes him is an apology.  Yesterday, Conservative deputy leader Lisa Raitt called on the House of Commons to:  “recognize Vice-Admiral Mark Norman for his decades of loyal service to Canada, express regret for the personal and professional hardships he endured as a result of his failed prosecution and apologize to him and his family for what they experienced during their legal conflict with government.”

 

But Justin Trudeau and his Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, slinked out the side door right before the motion.  That’s right they couldn’t even be bothered to stick around for the apology they owe Mark Norman.  This whole case has been politically motivated since day one, and Justin Trudeau has been leading the charge.  This is shameful behavior, and is damning of a Prime Minister who sees our laws and institutions as something he can manipulate for his own political gain. 

 

Justin Trudeau can’t just run away from the consequences of his actions!  Conservatives will hold him to account for his misconduct in the Mark Norman case and all his other scandals.

I don't like Trudeau any more than the next person but it would be nice if we had a political party at any level these days discuss issues rather than focusing on trying to undermine their opponents as policy.

Scheer has also made it part of his platform to make Canada energy independent and eliminate all foreign oil imports by 2030. Good policy and fantastic talking point.

Wasn't that pretty much what P.E. Trudeau tried during the '70s?  Didn't exactly go over too well in Alberta.....

Uh, no. He nationalized Canada's oil screwing Alberta. Scheer's policy would make Alberta oil very much in demand.

For anyone thinking about voting Green as a protest vote or something new in October, realize that voting Green is voting for Trudeau

In other words May wants to control the balance of power like Weaver does in BC.

Liberals as posted on the twitterverse today that also applies to the rest of the Progressive Left 

 

1. Yes to free speech - but only if we agree with what you say

 

2. Yes to democratic elections- but only if we win

 

3. Yes to a free press - but only those who we choose.

 

4. Yes to equality - but we must prefer those who have had historic discrimination

 

Please feel free to add to this...

Elizabeth May was parade marshall? of today's Victoria Day Parade. She was riding in a Dodge Viper.

We had this exact discussion one year ago. Do you mean to tell me May was marshall two years in a row, appearing both times in one of America's worst gas guzzlers? I'm skeptical.
