The National Post is very upset with the Conservatives

Matt Gurney: The Conservatives need a new leader. Now

This time, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer didn’t miss an empty net. He put the puck in. Sadly, the period was already over, and it had been for a week.

That hockey analogy is riffing off one made by Peter MacKay, not long after last year’s election. The Conservatives were gifted just about every imaginable gift by the Liberals — remember the brownface pictures? — and still flopped. A popular vote win was wasted on a campaign that completely fizzled in Quebec and Ontario, particularly in the crucial Greater Toronto Area ridings. It was a pathetic performance against a self-destructing opponent. MacKay’s comment was bang on — the net was empty and all the Tories had to do was glide the puck in. But they couldn’t do it.

Last week, Derek Sloan, a Conservative MP, fired a few broadsides at Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer. On Twitter, he called for her to be fired, and among his many valid (or at least defensible) criticisms of Tam, the World Health Organization and the Chinese government, he said that Tam “needs to work for Canada. Not for the WHO or any other foreign entity.” In a video, he was more explicit, asking, “Does she work for Canada or for China?”

It’s one thing to question a public official’s competence, another their loyalty to the country, and given that Tam is of Chinese heritage, Sloan’s comments could easily have been perceived (and they sure were!) as bigoted. His refusal to walk back or clarify that part of his remarks locked in the worst-possible interpretation of them as the only one a reasonable observer could reach.

And Scheer … did nothing. Asked repeatedly last week for comment, he simply refused to address the matter. Finally, this week, Scheer got around to agreeing that Sloan shouldn’t have questioned Tam’s loyalty to Canada.

So the bottom line that I am taking from what you have posted is that criticism of someone who is not "white" is racist. Ooookkkaaayyy! Me thinks there are too many "thin skinned" people in this world.

Meanwhile, the CBC is very angry at the Epoch Times. So angry they even faked the headline about it. Here is the headline they originally went with: "Canadians upset by Epoch Times claim China behind virus, made it as a bioweapon."



However, after getting a LOT of flak apparently, they changed the headline to be more accurate: Some Canadians see claims in Epoch Times about origin of virus as 'racist and inflammatory'.


The only real news here is 1) the CBC tried playing stupid f*cking games as usual and 2) Those Canadians who complained about it being racist and inflammatory are f*cking absolute morons. The Epoch Times is owned by a man of Chinese heritage and the vast majority of its story contributors are Chinese.


The headline SHOULD have read: "Leftist Canadians demonstrate how utterly clueless they are". Because the Canadian left has decided that Chinese people who criticize the Chinese govt are racists and their comments "inflammatory".

TRUE DAT! CBC LOVES THOSE Soviet Socialist PRAVDA style DISTORTIONS OF TRUTH!


A copy of Epoch Times showed up in my mail box recently ...........so out of curiosity I read through it.......SORT OF!


It might be more accurate to say I leafed through it looking for something or anything that would really enrage LIE-berals!



AND - HO HUM -The Epoch Times is a YAWNER!


The ONLY REAL REASON that LIE-berals are so bent out of shape over the critics snarling at Doc Tam



IS BECAUSE MOST OTHER NON LIE-beral CDNS RECOGNIZED WEEKS BEFORE our LIE-beral overlords did - that FORCING



TRAVELLERS INTO QUARANTINE WAS NECESSARY for our safety!


But Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals DID NOT want to offend their Beijing Butcher pals by suggesting that Chinese travellers



WERE CARRYING THE WUHAN PESTILENCE!


And of course now LIE-berals are CLAIMING that most Cdn Wuhan infections came from United States!


While at the same time LIE-berals carefully AVOID ANY MENTION of the fact that Yankee LIE-berals were NO MORE WILLING



than their Cdn counterparts - TO CLOSE THEIR BORDERS to travellers carrying the Pestilence than Cdn LIE-berals!


LIE-berals are now following their STANDARD PLAY BOOK and trying to stifle debate; trying to discredit critics with irrelevant



nonsense; and trying to CHANGE THE PAGE onto propaganda OF LIE-beral PREFERENCE!



LIE-berals are MUCH HAPPIER having us debate the merits of their USELESS NEW GUN LAW PROPOSAL than letting us continue



discussing HOW BADLY our arrogant LIE-beral overlords have handled the Wuhan Pestilence!


NOR are LIE-berals happy with the growing number of news reports of Cdns who are BEING LEFT OUT of the grand aid package



that seems to have been primarily set up FOR UNION HOGS! After all - we have just heard that thousands of airline workers



"are back on the job' - although what WORK they are doing - since so few planes are flying seems to be UNKNOWN!


LIE-berals have set up a grand aid program that MOST FULLY BENEFITS THEIR SUPPORTERS and leaves others OUT!


We have only to listen to the discussion about aid to post secondary students and WE SHOULD ASK WHICH WOULD BE CHEAPER



FOR CANADA - frozen wages for teachers and other HOGS - so that tuition costs and taxes are reduced?


Or a MASSIVE BORROWING effort that will take centuries to pay off - so govt can throw cash at students so teacher HOGS



will continue to get their gravy without any interruption - no matter what happens to the rest of us!



By slapping at Conservatives and sneering at the Epoch Times - LIE-berals are simply trying to SHOOT THE MESSENGER!

Who gives a shit what the leftist liberal conservative party says or does. The conservative party may have been a real conservative party at one time, but today they have become just another liberal party in conservative clothing. Scheer is in the same row boat with Turdeau.

I agree with Sloan that Tammy girl should just plain f off. Tammy girl should not be the chief health officer of leftist liberal Canada. All she is is a paid off biotch to try and get us all in the end vaccinated with Bill Gates puss vaccine. If there is anyone who is stupid enough to want to take his not so nice vaccine should first try and find out as to what are the ingredients in that vaccine. Hundreds of thousands of people have been maimed or injured from taking vaccines. Don't believe me? Go check it out on the internet and see what is put in most vaccines.

Tammy girls loyalty is to China, WHO, and B. Gates. Tammy girl works for the well funded Bill Gates pro-vaccine globalist outfit called WHO that is owned by Geo. Soros, and who is as far as I am concerned is a communist spy for China living in Canada. And if you want to call that racist or being bigoted, well go ahead, and make your day, punk. Lol.

It's all a hoax, folks, and this is all about trying to get everyone in Canada and the world vaccinated so the likes of deep state globalist like B. "Gates to hell" to make hundreds of millions of dollars at your health expense. It's your call now.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


POOR PITIFUL LIE-berals! Their PANIC is growing faster than our DEBTS!


Here are some thoughts about Conservatives THAT DID NOT COME FROM SOME LIE-beral friendly and LIE-beral bought



AND THUS LIE-BERAL TRUSTED news media!




How amusing that when LIE-berals get candid they can blurt out such savage stuff! Mark Elyas, a LIE-beral ridding association president who made headlines in the past for a profane rant against Trump nd suggesting that Trump supporters should lose custody of their kids - is no suggesting he would not shed a tear if Covidiots who violated quarantine orders - GOT SHOT by police or military snipers!

Yes- the same LIE-beral party that told us it was RACIST to ban or quarantine travellers from Wuhan - now likes the idea of shooting people who behave stupidly!

And yet this same LIE-beral party rages against Conservatives because one of them asked whether federal health official Dr. Theresa Tam was “working for the Chinese govt because of her slavish devotion and support for now BADLY DISCREDITED Red Chinese Propaganda related to Wuhan Virus!

The same people who told us back in January 2020 that Wuhan Virus was not a threat; and who also told us that Wuhan Virus COULD NOT be spread by human to human transmission are also on record as chiding China in the past for careless handling of Wuhan Virus and allowing it to escape from its research labs while being studied in previous years; IRONICALLY are now telling us there is NO evidence that Wuhan Virus escaped from a Chinese lab!

Cdn health official Bruce Aylward headed a Cdn mission to China in January to investigate how serious Wuhan Virus might become and then he came back to Canada to repeat all the platitudes given him by Beijing Butchers and by WHO officials and he was happy to do so in front of various LIE-beral friendly media interviewers who could be counted on to ask gentle easy questions!

But now that EVERYTHING that China and WHO told us about Wuhan Virus has been proven WRONG - Aylward is REFUSING to be interviewed by Cdn MP`s regarding what he saw and what he was told on that TAX PAYER FUNDED mission to China!

LIE-berals enjoy telling us how devoted they are to social justice and equality - and then they go off and implement policies that create exactly the OPPOSITE conditions for Cdns! As an example - LIE-berals are dishing out aid according to THINLY VEILED DISCRIMINATORY CHOICES!

LIE-berals think nothing of SCREWING unemployed people! WE have examples of people who were on U.I. when the Pandemic hit - and their benefits have run out - with NO HOPE of being able to get another job during the lock down! Yet they ARE NOT ENTITLED to the new CERB benefit because it is only available to those who lost their jobs due to the Pandemic!

It is LIE-beral Catch 22 - no longer getting old benefits and not eligible for any new benefits and no jobs available - thus LIE-berals are acting like Ebenezer Scrooge - expecting “surplus population to DIE or disappear!

In related news - people who DID lose their jobs in the early days of the Pandemic and who did apply for and receive some U.I. payments are now being told to switch over to CERB - but GOVT OFFICES ARE NOT OPEN and thus there is nobody available to do the paperwork - SO NO BENEFITS are available to them!

Thus these people are also caught in LIE-beral created Catch 22!

In related news - LIE-berals are delighted to dish out aid money to larger biz but seem to have GREAT DIFFICULTY finding any reason to even notice small biz!

It is reported that 36 percent of small biz in Canada DOES NOT CURRENTLY QUALIFY for any govt aid to biz!

LIE-berals are following their usual DISCRIMINATORY and penny pinching habit of doling out aid to THEIR FRIENDS AND ALLIES and SCREWING those they do not feel are loyal to them! Large biz is much more likely to be unionized than a small biz- and LIE-berals are DEFINITELY union PALS!

We have only to look at UNIFOR - the group that represents - among others - the workers striking at the Coop oil refinery out west because their HOG pension aint good enough - even though the majority of Cdns HAVE NO PENSION!

UNIFOR also represents 15,000 media employees - most of whom got a share of that SIX MILLION DOLLAR LIE-beral slush fund they offered to “Cdn media that LIE-berals trust” - meaning media ALLIES who say nice things about Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals!

We have only to look at LIE-beral actions in 2019 as tax laws for small biz were greatly TIGHTENED - while LIE-berals gave out $12 million dollars to Loblaws to buy energy efficient freezers and save on energy costs! One biz gets screwed and the other gets aid in the usual LIE-beral “rob Peter to pay Paul” method - guided by how best to BUY votes!

POOR hemerHOID! All his posts are now being mocked as they deserve!


His bright vision of a future full of electric TOY cars and air planes all owned and enjoyed by civil service union HOGS



and subsidized by ordinary Cdns who could not afford such "luxuries" has turned into a DISGRACED and COSTLY NIGHTMARE!





Here is an article explaining yet another another sneaky LIE-beral plan to BUY VOTES by bribing tenants and assorted illegals - this time with cheap energy! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Ontario should target its electricity subsidies and let bills go up for consumers who can afford it

(The LIE-beral DEVIL is in the details! LIE-berals want to PUSH UP electricity costs for the “middle class” - and then MOVE THAT NEW EXTRA REVENUE AROUND so they can give civil service union HOGS those grand pay raises that make HOGS IMMUNE to govt waste and shameless vote buying extravagance!)

Special to Financial Post. Published April 30, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated many families and businesses. During this unprecedented emergency, Ontario needs to take a hard look at its spending priorities and marshal its resources to help families and businesses hurt by the lockdown.

(Yes - many families and biz are suffering greatly - BUT HOGS ARE IMMUNE! NONE have been laid off - they are all sitting home ON FULL PAY! HOGS are not scratching around seeking CERB benefits to pay their rents and they have NO NEED to defer their mortgage payments and rack up extra interest charges either!)

This week, the Ontario Energy Association (OEA) released a report titled “Help Those Who Need Help” that puts Ontario’s much-discussed electricity system into context. Few Ontarians likely realize their provincial government is now spending about $6 billion annually to subsidize electricity rates. At a time when the province is being called on to support people and businesses with major new spending to address the pandemic’s fallout, it is striking to consider that only about $800 million of the $6 billion goes to people who have low incomes or live in rural or remote regions. This escalation in subsidy spending began in 2017 when the government of Premier Kathleen Wynne responded to voter agitation over rising electricity bills by introducing these huge subsidies.

(Ah yes- the Wynne-bag LIE-beral SCAM to try to save her HATED govt with BRIBES on our electric bills! LIE-berals at all levels of govt have issued HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS worth of IOU`s to govt union HOGS - with LIE-berals making solumn promises to PAY LATER in exchange for HOG VOTES NOW!)

(Problem is that we did not have the gravy when LIE-berals promised it - and LIE-berals HAVE NOT been able to find it in spite of a DESPERATE search! Wynne-bag LIE-berals seized on electricity price gouging, green energy SCAMS, carbon taxes and CLOSED Hydro One books so we could not see what they were doing WITH OUR CASH - in a frantic effort to give HOGS the gravy they feel entitled to have!)

(The Wynne-bag effort to BRIBE HOGS into complacency DESTROYED the Ontari-owe LIE-beral party and brought Doug Ford to power! Given the Ontari-owe RAGE at Wynne-bag - the NUTBAR NDPees have a better chance to win the 2022 election that LIE-berals do!)

Ontario is subsidizing electricity even though its pre-pandemic rates were among the lowest in the world at about 12.8 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh). By comparison, rates are as high as 35 cents per kwh in Germany, 24 cents in the United Kingdom and 15 cents in the United States (and those are all in U.S. dollars, not Canadian, as the Ontario figure is). As a per cent of household income, Ontario’s rates are at historic lows and close to the lowest in the world. On average, Ontario electricity bills represent 1.2 per cent of household income.

(There is a LIE-beral LIE - under Wynne-bag - Ontari-owe electricity rates were DRIVEN to become highest in North America - though LIE-berals routinely PRETEND that our rates are at “middle of the road” level! And we certainly have NO NEED to pay European rates for electricity - unless you are seeking EXCESS GRAVY FOR HOGS - as LIE-berals ARE DOING!)

Doug Ford needs to get serious about rising electricity costs in Ontario
Joe Oliver: Ontario’s electricity is reliable and clean, but it’s way too expensive
Terence Corcoran: Ontarians should be relieved Hydro One’s bizarre takeover plan is toast

(Ford is ALREADY as serious as he can be about rising electricity rates! Ford is doing all he can to CANCEL as many LIE-beral green energy contracts as he can since LIE-berals designed them TO FEED GRAVY TO HOGS in a GROSS PAY BACK for getting HOG votes in the 2010 and 2014 elections! LIE-berals set up this GREEN SCAM to pay huge rates to wind and solar farm owners at HIGH rates for ANY power they produced - no matter our real needs!)

(LIE-berals COMMITTED the province to buy that green energy at rates that were FAR HIGHER than other forms of generation and this resulted in Ontari-owe having HUGE energy surpluses in spring and fall when mouldy green power production was at maximum due to strong winds - and our electricity consumption was at its lowest due to moderate air temperatures!)

(LIE-beral energy policy was SO MESSED UP that we were paying premium prices for mouldy green power that we could not shut off thanks to those GENEROUS LIE-beral contracts with HOGS - and we had to SELL that green power to Yankee states AT A HUGE PRICE LOSS - just to get rid of it!)

(And now LIE-berals and HOGS are scheming and SCAMMING AGAIN, seeking ways to get the HOG electricity GRAVY TRAIN BACK ON TRACK - looking for new revenue to feed green power suppliers the GRAVY they think they are entitled to!)

(The UGLY TRUTH is that green power IS NOT even green since every kilowatt hour of green electricity MUST BE BALANCED with a kilowatt hour of electricity from a NATURAL GAS fueled generator that must be kept fully manned and fully powered up and sitting IDLE - but ready to take over at a moments notice when our unreliable green power FAILS yet again due to the wind gusts fading or the sun getting hidden behind a cloud!)

Let’s put Ontario’s electricity subsidies in context. Six billion dollars is more than the budget of the following government ministries combined: Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs; Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade; Environment, Conservation and Parks; Indigenous Affairs; Infrastructure; Labour, Training and Skills Development; Municipal Affairs and Housing; and Natural Resources and Forestry. Here’s more context: $6 billion is more than the Ontario government spends on its entire transportation system, both roads and transit.

(All this is LIE-beral NOISE - designed only to HIDE LIE-beral need for HOG votes - bought with sleazy and deceptive electricity marketing! It would be FAR EASIER just to FREEZE HOG WAGES - then our economy would be stabilized and there would be MUCH LESS RUINOUS INFLATION!)

Although electricity bills did increase over the last decade by an average of about $8 per month, natural gas bills declined by about $30 per month. As a result, the typical Ontario household’s total energy bill declined. That’s right: we added new energy subsidies even though household energy costs declined.

(Figures do not LIE - but LIE-berals figure! Under 15 years of LIE-beral miss-rule - Ontari-owe electricity costs EXPLODED! As mentioned - that price gouging was driven by the cost of HOG GRAVY!)

Because the $6 billion in subsidies is not targeted, wealthier households with larger homes and larger electricity bills get larger subsidies. A lower-income household in an apartment might receive a typical annual rate subsidy of $200, while someone living in a McMansion might get a rate subsidy of $1,750.

(So LIE-berals are now complaining about previous LIE-beral policy that rewarded HOGS and are now planning as always to ROB PETER TO PAY PAUL! Just remove the subsidies on everybody and use the recovered revenue to GRANT MORE GRAVY TO HOGS! And in related news - the NEW subsidy rates to “The Poor” can be TRIMMED to produce even more revenue for our “needy” HOGS!)

(What HOG would object to paying more for electricity if one also got a VERY NICE PAY RAISE that MORE THAN OFFSET the new electricity rates? LIE-berals will say and do anything to regain control of govt - and then FORGET any promises they made!)

(Our idiot Boy Justin promised a couple of years of deficits and then a return to a balanced budget yet in the 2019 election campaign that balanced budget turned into a promise to run MASSIVE deficits until 2050!)

When the pandemic forced many households to begin working from home and self-isolating, electricity rates jumped to the top of the public agenda again. People complained, many of them loudly, about having to pay peak electricity rates while at home during the day. Premier Doug Ford responded by lowering time-of-use rates to the “off-peak” rate of 10.1 cents/kwh — roughly a 21 per cent rate reduction.

(And now WHY do LIE-berals want to WHINE abut that Ford offer? Do LIE-berals object because HOGS did not get the special attention that they have come to expect as THEIR ENTITLEMENT?)

This new emergency subsidy is estimated to cost $162 million for the 45-day period it is currently scheduled to be in place. On balance, the premier’s response is understandable. (In fact, the OEA commended it in a statement.) But public reaction was wildly disproportionate to the actual problem. The OEA estimates that most households would have seen their bills increase by at most $10/month due to the increased consumption required by working at home — this at a time when households working from home likely have seen other household expenses plummet. For most such people, spending on transportation, retail shopping, restaurants, childcare and recreation have dropped dramatically.

(More LIE-beral NOISE! Considering the $252 billion dollars that Our idiot Boy is hsovelling out the door - that Ford $162 Million is a drop in the bucket! WE KNOW that due to security issues online and the limited capacity of govt servers - VERY FEW HOGS are actually working from home - thus their electricity costs ARE NOT SOARING! And HOGS ARE SAVING on transportation, child care and the like - but that aint good enough for the PIGS!

( If LIE-berals were so worried about debt and deficits - let them STOP paying HOGS to sit at home on full pay and send them INSTEAD the lower cost CERB aid that so many ordinary Cdns MUST make do with!)

(In related news - Ford now has new ammunition to justify a HOG WAGE FREEZE in our dead broke, Wuhan ravaged province and HOGS don’t like that!)
By phasing out untargeted broad-based electricity subsidies, Ontario could free up almost $5 billion of budget room at a time when demands on government funds seem almost unlimited. Ontario should also end the emergency off-peak subsidy on May 8, as planned, and avoid extending this expensive non-targeted subsidy.

(Uh huh- and OVER TWO BILLION OF THAT would be immediately eaten up by high school TEACHERS demanding IMMEDIATE PENSION UPGRADES! With EIGHTEEN MORE provincial unions right behind OSSTF - all with their own lists of DEMANDS!)

Recommending that electricity bills should go up for consumers who can afford it probably won’t be popular. But the reality is that Ontario’s government should focus its scarce resources on programs targeted to those who have been most impacted by COVID-19. It needs to help those who need help.

(Giving in to LIE-beral vote buying scams is a GREAT WAY to complete the LIE-beral mandated economic DESTRUCTION of Ontari-owe!)

TRUE DAT Dixie!


Tam has been a CONSISTENT cheerleader for the Red Chinese version of Wuhan Virus events!


Tam has simply parroted the views and values of her boss - that idiot Boy Justin who has told us that "HE admires the basic Chinese



democracy" and that he also "Likes the way the Chinese get things done"!


Just DO NOT ask Our idiot Boy about slave labour camps and repression and Chinese spies stealing all manner of industrial and



trade technology secrets as well as producing all manner of products laced with dangerous heavy metals and chemicals!


Tam IS NOT being condemned because of her RACE!


Tam is being condemned based on the values FAMOUSLY ESPOUSED BY Dr. Martin Luther King!


King had a dream for the future in which as he stated : "A person would be judged by their character and NOT by the colour of their skin"!


There is ample evidence that BOTH Dr. Theresa Tam and her odious Boss Justin Trudope have shared characteristics and


VALUES THAT ONLY A SOVIET SOCIALIST DICTATOR might approve of!


NO NEED to apologize for condemning the values of Dr. Tam!


And NO NEED for singer Bryan Adams to apologize either for his rather profane condemnation of Red China either!


Frankly it looks like the BIGGEST MISTAKE Adams made was to be PROFANE in his rant against the Chinese REDS!


A cleaner but jut as critical comment would likely have been more widely accepted!


As I have told my son - "People think you are smarter if you can make your point without swearing"!


An whenever LIE-berals raise the "race" defense - then we KNOW they have been STUNG BY HONEST CRITICISM!

What kind of a conservative doesn't spend his life paid off by big oil? Not a Harper conservative, that's for sure.

I think Scheer is just a genuinely nice guy, and maybe too nice to be swimming in the filth that is Parliament. http://globalnews.ca/news/6112757/andrew-scheer-election-loss/

POOR PITIFUL hemerHOID!


His vision of a future full of costly electric TOY cars and other electric monstrosities HAS DIED!


In the latest news - air pollution in China IS SPIKING Ad their economy rumbles back to life!


Oil LIVES ON as the power behind our economy!


More people than ever are interested in gasoline powered personal transport so they will not have to risk riding on



crowded Public Transit with Pestilence sufferers!


In related news - I several times mentioned a kid in my neighbourhood who bought an electric powered motorcycle last spring!


And now I know what happened with it!


The kid spent ONE SEASON ON THE ELECTRIC TOY!


Until he got enough money to get himself a FULL SIZED GAS POWERED PICKUP GMC TRUCK!


It is a club cab and big enough to carry him and some gear and a coup;e of his pals!


And has a MUCH LONGER range and easier refueling then his electric TOY!


Oh yes - the truck costs more - and LASTS LONGER than the electric TOY!


That kid has made HIS choice - ignored the dreams of hemerHOID!



The electric motorcycle TOY is now gathering dust in his fathers garage!


THAT IS THE REALITY of ALL electric TOYS!


People use them till they can GET SOMETHING BETTER!


And my advice to the kid is this: SELL THE ELECTRIC TOY QUICKLY!



BEFORE the battery decays too badly!


The HemerHOID dream of an all electric future is DEAD AS DISCO!
