Justin Trudeau is a Dirty Rotten Liar

My blood boils that this SOB is going to get away with this. The NDP has bent over backwards to keep the house running while we are in a pandemic. Now that the liberals haven't been given absolutely everything they are now in a very strong position to demand 4 more years as a majority. Sickening.

Why? Politicians lie. Politicians lying about politicians seems like the logical progression.

Trudeau will do what he sees is best for him, and blaming the NDP for him calling an election (his constitutional right) in order to reduce their popularity when his polling is highest, and the conservatives are at the lowest, seems like the logical move.

Justin Trudeau is past his best before date, and everyone but his supporters know it. He's been in office long enough now that any Canadian with a brain knows it's time for a change. As I've said before, what we need is a Conservative minority government. The last thing this country needs right now is a majority government of any political stripe.

Putting the next PM on a short leash is the ONLY option. I strongly believe we are headed for either another Liberal minority, or a small Conservative minority. The NDP may or may not kick around as the opposition, but I also believe that Blanchet will lose some seats due to him supporting C-10, and we might just see them go Conservative for a change. Quebecers are very fickle and can turn on a dime it seems.

As for JT blaming the NDP for an election, I don't think that will fly. Everyone knows he alone has been pining for an election when all the other parties didn't want one, especially during a pandemic. Blaming everyone else just makes him look more stupid than he already is.

JT has alienated himself from most Canadians, save his brainwashed minions that would happily follow him off the cliff. Everyone owes it to the future of Canada to send him packing.

O'Tool is not the man, however.

Perhaps, but anything is better than Trudeau right now (excluding Singh).



llama66 @ Mon Aug 02, 2021 9:31 am

No, O'Toole is just, if not more weak. He panders to the most conservative in his base, and for that he will never form government. Canadian's don't want engage on Abortion, or some of the other topics Erin thinks is important.

I know! Annamie Paul!

Let's see:
- Greens i near total collapse
- NDP nearly out of money, leader can't count on any Quebec seats
- Tories still stuck on 1950 issues and in spite of fires and droughts can't even agree with leader there's a Climate crisis. Add in Kenney and Ford as examples of why NEVER to vote Conservative.

Trudeau would be a FOOL not to go for it now.


Scape @ Mon Aug 02, 2021 1:26 pm

Erin O’Toole approaches an election with a party so fractured that some Conservatives want him to lose

A party divided can't stand. O'toole is toast and he is working hard on taking the whole party with him.

Greens are done, I would be surprised if they hold even one seat.

If enough liberals see the writing on the wall and switch to the NDP we may end up with another minority. However, for that to happen the liberals will need to go off brand or the GG may FORCE the NDP to form government with liberal support when Trudeau asks the GG permission to drop the writ. I have my doubt she will do that but wouldn't it be fun to see the look on his smug face.


CDN_PATRIOT @ Mon Aug 02, 2021 1:40 pm

I still believe it's either going to be another Liberal minority, or a Conservative minority This will also lead to said new government falling quickly, plunging us into another election no one wanted, just like this one.

There is too much division right now to think otherwise.

The best government has always been a minority government. Just ask Tommy Douglas. The problem is that it is inherently unstable. When we get majority we get power for powers sake. What I fear is that the liberals and the cons will learn all the wrong lessons from the last 3 years and go back to politics as usual rather than focusing on policy for the people.

If the writ is dropped and the Liberals win a majority they will double down on their graft as they will see it as their chance to get what they want before anyone else has a chance. Sure, they will do some window dressing, such as clean water and money to find the bodies for the indigenous and some daycare at 10$ but after than they will rest on the laurels of 'handling' covid and provide lip service to climate change.

FFS it's not just OToole. Our local MP is still touting anti-immigrant, defecit warnings and the incessant crime bullshit as usual.
Not a fucking mention about climate or environment in any of his newsletters, ever.
The forests are burning, the mills are shut down, but there's mountains of sawed lumber you can't afford (as lumber companies learn from Big Oil how to manipulate the market), the crops are dying of drought and store shelves half empty. The fucking SaveOn here looks like the GUM dept. store in Soviet Russia, they're digging bodies out of school yards and people think that replacing the gov't because it didn't do the best job with one that couldn't even start to even think about real problems is the solution?


Strutz @ Mon Aug 02, 2021 8:31 pm


Seriously. I have no fucking idea where to stick my vote this time.


Thanos @ Mon Aug 02, 2021 8:35 pm

I'm going with the Liberals, for the first time in my life. The Conservatives don't deserve my vote - they're out of ideas, their party is ridden lousy with so-con fanatics, and they're stuck in the 1990's with their obsolete and burned-out ideology. The fed NDP are insane and hate Alberta with all their hearts. The Liberals are the best option to get a UBI started, and as I get older that's increasingly becoming a priority for me.

No choice really. It'll feel weird voting that way, even if the Liberal candidate in my area probably has no chance at all of winning. But it is what it is. I'm fairly overdue to let my parent's politics follow them into the after-life and start voting what's best for me & not for someone else. :|
