It's amazing. You shit your pants over Kavanaugh being appointed to the SCOTUS based on unproven allegations of rape that you clearly believed.

Face it ya stupid f*ck-wit, there's no discussing anything with you. You're such a partisan piece of shit it's amazing you still have the brain power for your autonomous functions.

OH HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


You WILDLY FOOLISH CREATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



You NOT DO KNOW that Our idiot Boy Justin represents the riding of Papineau in Montreal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


And Wikipedia tells us this about the riding:


At nine square kilometres, it covers the second smallest area of any federal riding in Canada, after Toronto Centre. Linguistically, 45% of residents list French as their mother tongue, 8% list English, and 47% list neither English nor French, with large groups speaking Spanish, Italian, Greek and Arabic. The total immigrant population is 47 per cent.


So Our idiot Boy represents a riding where ONLY EIGHT PERCENT of inhabitants are English speakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And 45 percent of the population is Francophone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


And the LARGEST GROUP in the riding - at 47 percent are IMMIGRANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Yes - immigrants that Our idiot Boy is BUSY BRIBING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



So here is a FUN QUESTION::::::::::


HOW WELL DO YOU THINK OUR IDIOT BOY WOULD DO if he tried to get elected in Peterborough Ont?????????????????


Can you just see him Back ON that podium trying to explain to that weeping nurse why it is a GOOD THING for LIE-berals - that she get screwed over by that vicious combination of LIE-beral electricity price gouging, frozen wages and huge inflation driven by the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade tax SCAM?????????????????????????????



HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


And how well would Our idiot Boy do if he LOST the support of special interest groups like civil service union Hogs and natives??????


As has ALREADY HAPPENED to Ontari-owe LIE-beral Wynne-bag??????????????????????????????????


You remember Her???????????????????


Right??????????????????????/



By the twisted logic of a LIE-beral like HOID- the NDP airhead Jagmeet Singh should be running in Brampton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Not in B.C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And is it not ridiculous how LIE-berals talk so sincerely about justice and fair play and equality ..................and then work so very hard to subvert our institutions to their advantage????????????????????????

Suck it up, bitch. Your pathetic deflections are a joke. Face it, you support a PM who has absolutely ZERO concept of rule of law, ethics, morals or standards. Even his new impaired driving law is a direct assault on the Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. I'm a staunch supporter of tougher impaired driving laws but this goes beyond the pale. Of course we all know this is just a precursor for an attempted gun grab. No judge in the world is going to convict anyone of drunk driving for blowing over the limit in their f*cking living room. Well, at least no judge that isn't busy sucking Groper off like you.

How Gerald Butts's combative use of Twitter brought him out of the shadows

Quote:

Key aides to a prime minister generally prefer to stay in the shadows, perhaps providing background information to Parliament Hill journalists, but rarely giving interviews or generating much of a public persona.

In some ways, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's former principal secretary Gerald Butts carried on that tradition, rarely quoted, speaking to journalists only on background.
But he was particularly outspoken on the social media site Twitter.
Butts, who resigned Monday in the wake of the SNC-Lavalin affair, garnered a reputation of being a prolific tweeter, never shy to express his opinions, or "personal views" as he referred to them.
He would promote and champion the Liberal Party and the prime minister's policy initiatives. But he would also defend the prime minister, sometimes lash out at critics, take partisan swipes at the Conservatives and engage in Twitter spats with politicians and journalists.
Even before Trudeau became prime minister in 2015, Butts was a presence on Twitter. In that year's election campaign, Butts went after one of his favourite targets, news media company Postmedia, over their articles about Trudeau's insistence that all new Liberal candidates must be pro-choice on abortion.
But after Trudeau became prime minister, Butts's criticism about the media company continued:
Sometimes in a more cheeky manner:
Butts would also tangle with journalists, as he did over a Vogue photo shoot of Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau.
Or critiques of Trudeau's availability to the media:
In 2018, when the Liberals announced tax incentives for the news industry, some journalists expressed concerns about what they might mean for journalistic independence.
He certainly wasn't above scolding the media.
Here, he made a veiled critique of Canadian media for following stories on Russian websites raising questions about the grandfather of Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and his ties to the Nazis.
He also went after the Globe and Mail in 2016 over an editorial about questions surrounding the birthplace of Liberal cabinet minister Maryam Monsef, comparing the article to the birther movement that falsely claimed former U.S. president Barack Obama was not born in the U.S.
Which sparked its own backlash with some journalists.
Butts would also tangle with politicians. Conservative MP Erin O'Toole was a regular opponent.
So was Alberta's United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney.
Former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall, as well, got into an exchange over his survey about pipeline politics.
Butts would also get involved in Twitter skirmishes with policy analysts. In February 2016, he debated with experts over the Liberals' ant-ISIS plan.
Twitter was also a tool to launch defences of his boss. He slammed critics who ridiculed Trudeau for using the term peoplekind instead of mankind during a town hall in Edmonton.
Although Trudeau later brushed it off as a "dumb joke," Butts would take a step further, suggesting those who were so offended by the term were alt-right Nazi sympathizers.
Butts regularly employed the alt-right characterization, and he used it again to label those he felt were prejudiced against asylum seekers.
That led to this exchange with Toronto Sun editor emeritus and columnist Lorrie Goldstein:
Naturally, the federal Tories were constant target. Whether it was the previous Harper government:
Or the current Conservative party:
Indeed, the former CEO of the World Wildlife Federation's Canadian office made his political opponents' climate change policies, or the lack thereof, a consistent topic.
It may be fitting that Butts, shortly after his resignation, used the forum to post his resignation letter and thank those who offered notes of encouragement.

Start slamming her before she testifies at the hearing

Jody Wilson-Raybould Did A Poor Job As Justice Minister

Quote:

In the last two weeks, reports have emerged that Justin Trudeau, or someone in the Prime Minister's Office, may have attempted to influence the prosecution of the SNC-Lavalin Case. The fallout has been well publicized, and ultimately led to Jody Wilson-Raybould's resignation from Trudeau's cabinet.
The resignation brought an outpouring of support for the former Justice Minister, who is now wisely viewed as demoted for not bowing to Trudeau's wishes.That outpouring of support concerns me, however, because Wilson-Raybould did a poor job as the Justice Minister.

When Wilson-Raybould was appointed Justice Minister, she was given a mandate letter that included priorities such as medically-assisted dying, reducing the use of solitary confinement, addressing the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in incarceration and addressing gaps in services for the mentally ill and Indigenous people in the justice system.
During her time in office, she failed to accomplish many of the things in this letter.
Yes, Wilson-Raybould did champion a bill to create a process for medically-assisted dying. However, that legislation is already the subject of challenges before the courts in large part because it arguably doesn't address the concerns raised by the Supreme Court of Canada in the Carter case. This case found that the ban on physician-assisted death was unconstitutional.
And yes, cannabis was legalized under Wilson-Raybould's auspices. Or at least, some cannabis was legalized for some people. Meanwhile, medical cannabis was then subject to taxes, sentences increased for certain cannabis-related offences, and access to legal cannabis became very difficult shortly after legalization.
Along with cannabis legalization, Wilson-Raybould brought in legislation that eliminated Charter protections for those accused of impaired driving offences. This, arguably, puts vulnerable people at risk of further interactions with police. It has also been the subject of criticism for the manner in which it will disproportionately affect Indigenous and racialized people.
Nothing in Wilson-Raybould's mandate letter suggested she overhaul the law in relation to alcohol-impaired driving. This appeared to be her own idea, and has been widely panned by defence lawyers and scholars for its unconstitutionality.
In enacting legislation to deal with cannabis impairment specifically, Bill C-46 created a new presumption that the results of a Drug Recognition Evaluation test are now proof of impairment. This will negatively impact those who perform poorly on the test due to medical or mental health ailments.
Wilson-Raybould also established "per se" limits for impairment, meaning that people with certain blood THC concentrations will be guilty of new impaired driving offences. This despite the science connecting blood THC concentration to impairment largely suggesting there is no connection.This has already begun negatively impacting medical cannabis users.
Other legislation introduced by Wilson-Raybould, such as Bill C-51, reverses the disclosure obligation in criminal trial to an accused person and exposes that person to cross-examination by the complainant. This fundamentally undermines our entire concept of justice in this country.
In Bill C-75, Wilson-Raybould sought to eliminate a right of cross-examination of police witnesses in criminal trials, while also attempting to remove preliminary inquiries from most serious criminal cases and prohibiting peremptory challenges in jury trials.
Remember, too, that while the mandate letter directed Wilson-Raybould to put an end to solitary confinement, under her direction the Department of Justice defended several Charter challenges to the practice of solitary confinement. And when the overuse of this method was struck down by the courts, the Department of Justice filed an appeal and sought a stay of the order permitting them to continue to use solitary confinement while the appeal was pending.
Finally, Wilson-Raybould was supposed to oversee the creation and completion of an inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. The inquiry that has occurred has been the subject of numerous scandals, with the resignations of several prominent figures, and timeline extensions well beyond the original two-year deadline. This means that justice and closure for those families, as well as an action plan to prevent further harm to Indigenous women and girls, was significantly delayed under Wilson-Raybould's watch.
There are many reasons to be critical of a government that purported to influence the decisions made in a prosecution, which is supposed to be free from those types of influences. And if that was the case, it should be thoroughly investigated.
However, this allegation doesn't mean we should look back on Wilson-Raybould's legacy with wistful nostalgia. Until I know the full story, I will not be too quick to rehabilitate Wilson-Raybould in my mind, and I caution others against doing the same.

("Hey @Trevornoah - thanks for everything you're doing to celebrate Nelson Mandela's legacy at the @GlblCtzn festival. Sorry I can't be with you - but how about Canada pledges $50M to @EduCannotWait to support education for women & girls around the world? Work for you? Let's do it," Trudeau tweeted to the South African comedian and The Daily Show host)

I hope to Hell Canadians aren't suffering too much short term memory loss (too soon after Bill C-45?) before Oct 21st.

In regards to that pipeline thing , it looks like the NEB is giving approval, I am wondering if losing that fight might actually contributed to Butts sudden exit . Just musing .

Plucked fresh from the anti-everything clan.

Mark my words, Trudeau will give the pipeline to First Nations. It'll be this summer when the House isn't sitting or after the fall session closes for the election.

I wonder how many Billions of our hard earned and yet to be earned dollars will chucked towards everything East of Kenora to buy votes?

Yeah, that 12 million person majority in the West is always getting the shaft.

The East doesn't DESERVE anything because the West is so much more moral than they are.
