All that fighting by the conbots and curmudgeons about how this was a complete waste of time.

What's next? Conservatives will support the long form census? .... Oh wait.


Anyway, we haven't even been through the first week and we already have a substantial portion of Harper's last decade of policy being thrown in the trash in favour of social progressivism.


So good.



Rona Ambrose will support inquiry into missing, murdered indigenous women

The Conservatives will support a public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women, says interim leader Rona Ambrose.

Her comments mark a stunning reversal of the position taken by the Conservatives under Stephen Harper, who repeatedly rebuffed growing calls for a national inquiry, saying the government action on crime precluded the need for further studies.

"If the Liberal government wants to do an inquiry, and they think that's an important thing to do, I will support it," said Ambrose during an interview on CBC News Network's Power & Politics.

I'm sure the news coming out of Val-d'Or has made it next to impossible to ignore an inquiry. Now we must contend with the very real possibility that police officers themselves might be responsible for many of these deaths.

It will be politically incorrect to arrest the actual guilty parties.

It's a strategically brilliant move. The existence of an inquiry and the costs associated are now clearly in the bucket of the new Liberal government and even the choice to have one. Justine got in partly on his support for the native community. Now he gets a test of that support.

Meanwhile in Quebec, the Montreal branch of the SQ is investigating the Val-d'Or branch. I guess it's better than the Val-d'Or branch investigating itself, but a civilian investigation would still be better to avoid any possibility of bias in favour of the accused police officers.

And of these things were going on there, then what about police officers in the rest of Canada?

And the inquests that have already taken place mean nothing.

But you're getting value for your money, lol.

I agree, a national inquiry into something that has already seen many inquests, is a complete waste of money.

I'm glad to see you come around and admit it was just pandering to FN's and women, on JT's part.

I was referring to her pitiful performance so far.

She barely answers questions and I doubt the conbots actually support this.

They are just a weak sauce opposition.

So you are upset she is supporting an inquiry? This was Justine's position before he came into government wasn't it? I know you were all on Harper for not having one. You should be ecstatic that now Justine can have one now that he is in power. The support of the opposition leader should be making you happy. Or could it be that when Justine does not have the inquiry, now he will look like a hypocrite?

(And as an NDP supporter shouldn't that also be making you happy?)

I don't think anybody involved knows what is causing it. That would be my guess as to why they keep trying. By knowing, parties involved have to have quantifiable data.

I was under the impression the currently requested inquest is going to cover women from ACROSS Canada. There have been some very damning stuff coming from Newfoundland and Quebec lately.

The numbers of those involved seems too high when combined with other ethnic groups in Canada. It could very well means something. But we don't know the whys or the whats' of it and so can't quantify anything about it. Yet.

I don't think anybody really thinks it's 1 thing disappearing these women or teenagers etc. Some of these women are actually teenagers.

Why have earlier inquests "meant nothing". Where they really just fluff to cover the publics eyes so we'd think they cared?

We do need to KNOW what IS going on across Canada. There is still some bad stuff going on and we should learn what that is. Who's involved. Why it's happening.

These women are someones mother, daughter, sister, aunt and it's STILL going on. I suspect it's right hideous the sh!te that's going on. We can't expect people to function in society if their personal life is full of stuff that we know causes PTSD in the rest of the population, including the professionally trained population.

This is nothing new. Things change with new leadership. It's like when Scott Brison and Balinda Stronach suddenly reversed their opinions 180 degrees as soon as they crossed the floor.

Also, defeated parties are not obligated to stick to promises and platforms that the electorate rejected.

Why would you want it to be "f-ckin whitie"?

Yeah, Cons would love to see a waste of taxpayer money.

Well, it really is not about missing women, you know. Or at least not here at CC. Here it is about Con vs. Gliberal (kind of like most everything else here).

Yes we do seem to polarize. While I am surprised by the change of heart, I think it a good strategy by the Tories. I am also of the belief it won't find anything that the other ones won't have found. But what's a couple of million dollars anyways?

And just to be clear, I am 100% on the "Tastes Great" side of the debate. "Less Filling" is for losers.
