Brutal, scathing comment, dude. I imagine OB's sitting in the corner weeping and cutting herself in sheer despair over being undone by your spoon-sharp wit.

I really enjoy reading her posts and liked when she came back, fresh eyes looking at the discussion,The board is slow enough without fracturing conversations in 2-5 different directions. Opening up for posters like Hoid, MHZ and even at times yourself to run to different threads and move the goal posts a touch until it isn't worth responding to.

p.s. If I kept my work files this way the auditors would fire my ass

Scheer slams Trudeau after ambassador fired

Quote:

OTTAWA - After a week in which he twice weighed in on a high-stakes extradition case, John McCallum is out as Canada's ambassador to China — although for Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, the damage has already been done.
"It should never have come to this," Scheer tweeted Saturday, after the prime minister's office released a statement announcing McCallum's resignation at the request of Justin Trudeau.
That move came just hours after McCallum was quoted in a Vancouver newspaper saying it would be "great for Canada" if the United States dropped its extradition request for Meng Wanzhou, the Huawei executive who was detained in Vancouver last month.
McCallum told StarMetro Vancouver on Friday that if the U.S. and China reach an agreement on Meng's case, the deal should include the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, two Canadians currently detained in China.
"We have to make sure that if the U.S. does such a deal, it also includes the release of our two people. And the U.S. is highly aware of that," McCallum told the Star.
That comment followed a statement McCallum issued Thursday, saying he misspoke earlier in the week when he discussed Meng's case with a group of Chinese-language journalists in Toronto, listing several arguments he thought could help her with her legal fight against extradition.

Headline not in line with the article where Scheer called for his firing last Wednesday.

Not sure what mcCallum was thinking.

Would not be a bit surprised if he was drunk at the time.

Also may point to a diminishing of skills when a politician is out of the normal to and fro of political debate.

Trudeau vs Xi Jinping. Or, hypocritical asshat vs hypocritical asshat. And why the f*ck are we even dealing with the drug smuggling assholes in the fist place? The govt of the PRC is NOT a legitimate govt, it is a drug smuggling criminal organization and the sooner Canada (and any other country with a fentanyl crisis) calls them out on it, the better.
They are using the illegal flow of fentanyl from China as leverage to gain political concessions in Canada. But what does this govt do? Plays right along with the stupid f*cking game.
And considering that diplomats aren't subject to Customs inspections, Chinese diplomats are the perfect fentanyl mules.

Getting? I think the most disturbing thing about that article is just how f*cked our entire system is. What the hell kind of country is this where the ruling party more or less gets to decide if it will be investigated for its own alleged criminal wrong-doings? Meanwhile, Groper wants to charge people for blowing .10 while sitting in their own f*cking living room.

Groper's carbon tax is likely going to die where it stands. You see, Groper (and Butts) got greedy/stupid. If he just made the carbon tax a single rate across the provinces, similar to the GST, there wouldn't be much room to fight for the un-constitutionality of it. But because it will effectively be a different rate from province to province to territory, it is akin to the federal govt creating a separate provincial sales tax for each province, something that is NOT in their purview. Never mind the fact that Groper's rejection of Nunavut's emission reduction plan is pretty solid proof that the carbon tax has absolutely nothing to do with "combating" climate change.

Yep, gonna be real interesting. Having to legally defend the carbon tax while trying to work up some damage control over SNC-Lavalin. All with just months before an election.

Great another disaster in the making . Remember the Cheakemus River derailment and the loss of fish , every year since their has been smaller eagle counts in Squamish Valley . Now we can derail in Hellís Gate and kill a run of sockeye , spring , coho an$ pink at the same time ! Happy times are here again , we stopped that pipeline .
