Misogyny was never so rampant as it has become before women started getting so damned pushy!
It's all in the teaching of our children to look at all people as individuals and not classify them according to gender.
Trudeau is making a mistake by putting a quota on women in his cabinet. Doesn't ability, capability and talent count anymore? If a person is best qualified for a job it shouldn't matter whether it's a man or woman.

You speak of these things when referring to LIE-berals?????????????????????????
LIE-berals HAVE NO INTEREST in such virtues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LIE-berals simply desire to WIN ELECTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NO TALENT NEEDED OR REQUIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a steady stream of Fake News to confuse the general public and a steady diet high in gravy for civil service union Hogs and other well heeled pals of LIE-beral party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is a sampling of that Fake News:
Here is an article illustrating the deceptive values that Green Party airheads and double dealing LIE-berals and their less intelligent NDP cousins are trying to sell us as they pretend to deal with global warming and environmental degradation- while they PROFIT from their double dealing!
WE now have ample proof that carbon taxes ONLY clean cash from wallets and leave the dirt in the air- thanks to 15 years of European experience!
Greens, NDPers and LIE-berals are all trying to sell us the same poisonous”vision” of a wonderful carbon free future- without the bother of admitting the cost and consequences of all that we will be forced to do without if their vision is even partially realized!
All loonie leftists groups- led by LIE-berals- have offered climate efforts that thus far have centred on ways to extract cash from wallets rather than cleaning dirt from the air! With some comments of my own in brackets):
Bold Climate Action. Because we live here.
(Greens are very fond of recycling LIE-beral talking points!)
Climate change is both the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity that Canada has ever faced. While the consequences of failing to address climate change would be catastrophic, our transition to a green, sustainable economy will create good local jobs, shorter commutes, more livable cities, and cleaner air and water.
(What a truly wonderful utopian delusion these Greens/LIE-berals are selling us! Too bad 15 YEARS of European experience indicates that LIE-beral style climate action KILLS 2.5 jobs for each green job their carbon scams create! Tesla Motors is the poster child for LIE-beral style carbon efforts- sucking up massive govt grants at every turn while remaining utterly unprofitable!)
For Canadians to benefit from this transition, we need to elect Green Members of Parliament. Only Green MPs will stand up to defend our coastlines from increased tanker traffic, our rivers and parks from reckless pipeline projects, and our economy from further pursuit of high-risk extractive schemes that threaten Canada’s long-term prosperity. Only Green MPs will position our economy to reap the full benefits of the inevitable global shift to a fossil-fuel free economy.
It is time for Canada to take bold climate action.
Because we live here, our top environmental priorities are to:
Defend our coastal waters from risky pipelines and oil tankers
(OH yes- tankers from Venezuela are FINE- but no Cdn tankers allowed! And it does not matter that Cdn oil is produced under TIGHTER regulations than foreign oil!)
Only Green MPs will put our coastal communities first by standing against all new raw bitumen export schemes.
(SO Greens will kill Cdn natural gas exports- which means that countries like China will continue to burn coal!)
Kinder Morgan proposes a seven-fold increase in oil sands tanker traffic through Vancouver and Burnaby, while Energy East proposes to increase tanker traffic through the Bay of Fundy. These tankers would carry bitumen from the oil sands, mixed with toxic diluents to make it flow, a mixture that is impossible to clean up if spilled.
(WE have a choice here- Venezuelan tankers in Bay of Fundy- and Venezuela has tar sads of their own in use! Or we can have more heavily regulated Cdn tankers in Bay of Fundy!)
A single tanker accident would ruin our coast and the lives and livelihoods that depend on its health. That is why we recognize that the economic, social and environmental consequences of approving these projects is simply too high. We will take a stand and defend our coastline.
Poll after poll shows that the people of the West Coast will not allow this risky project. More than half of British Columbians say they oppose the Kinder Morgan expansion, including more than three-quarters of young British Columbians.
(And is it not quite hypocritical that B.C. natives are putting more cars on the road each year- And that they are whining about the high price of gas as well? Greens have NOT honestly read the pub;ic mood at all! Opposition to Kinder Morgan is all about BLACKMAIL! IT is local politicians and native groups- supported by a few lunatic fringe players- seeking extra “compensation” for tolerating pipelines!)
Even the Ontario Energy Board has ruled that Energy East poses more risks than benefits.
(Gosh- a bunch of LIE-beral appointees have SUPPORTED LIE-beral policy- and we should be surprised?)
While the old parties use complaints about process to avoid taking a stand, or even fast track and support these projects outright, the Green Party is the only party standing up for the people and communities threatened by these projects.
Arrest the growth in oil sands expansion
(OIL sands operations have already been crippled- in 2007 we had a federal govt surplus of $10 billion and that is GONE thank largely to oil price drops and crippled Cdn production! Many people deplore the dictators of Saudi Arabia- and yet shutting down Cdn oil production means Saudi oil production grows more valuable- and STRENGTHENS the Sheikhs hand!)
Protecting existing jobs in the industry, creating new jobs by upgrading and refining existing production, and providing skills training for workers who have been laid off or who want to transition to more stable, long-term jobs. This strategy (more Peter Lougheed and less Ralph Klein) would actually help Alberta’s economy avoid the disruptive boom and bust cycle.
(Greens are talking through their hats! They talk glibly about new jobs but cannot tell us how such jobs would be created, or how long they would last without massive govt subsidies! WE know that for every green job created- TWO other jobs get killed off! Spain and Germany have proven this fact!)
Given climate realities and volatile international oil prices, expanding oil sands production is simply not on. Most of the bitumen in the Alberta oil sands must remain in the ground. We will create new jobs in Canada’s oil and gas sector by refining the product we already produce, rather than shipping it out raw for refining in other countries.
(There is the ULTIMATE GREEN DELUSION! The airheads have learned NOTHING from the Pierre Trudeau/Petro Caanda debacle! LIE-berals BOUGHT some oil companies and distributers and cobbled Petro Canada together! And in spite of being given FREE ACCESS to Cdn ol fields- civil service union Hog run Petro Canada NEVER made a penny!!!!!By comparison- private companies that had to PAY for access to Cdn oil fields made FINE PROFITS!)
(IN the end- Brian Mulroney sold off Petro Canada rather than waste more tax money subsidizing the oil Hogs!)
In addition to increasing our refining capacity, Canada should be leading the global clean technology industry – an industry that has boomed in other countries like Germany, where over 1.4 million clean-tech jobs generate over 11 percent of the country’s GDP.
(And as previously mentioned- each green job created- KILLS 2.5 regular jobs! WE can NOT AFFORD such math!)
We need to respect the oil sands workers whose livelihoods still depend on the industry, and to support the tens of thousands of oil sands workers who have recently been laid off. Canada should provide these workers with retraining to ensure they find good, long-term reliable jobs close to home, not jobs that are vulnerable to cycles of boom and bust and often thousands of kilometres away from their families.
(Socialists have been assuring us for decades that if we would only support them then we can all have a fine life! But the collapse of Soviet Union and the chaos in Venezuela throws the LIE back into the faces of Green socialists! Even Chinese Communists have a stock market and capitalist economy! Socialism SUCKS!)
We must also provide urgent support to First Nations living downstream from the oil sands, whose communities and traditional foods are being contaminated by oil sands pollution in the Athabasca water and air sheds, with devastating health consequences.
(That support has already been offered- the pollution has been DRASTICALLY REDUCED- and what is left is a residue from many decades back when the world was more careless! LIE-berals are already playing this card by using “consultations” with natives to hold up Kinder Morgan!)
