Well, I’m fairly sure the Federal Liberals are beyond desperate with the Golden Parachute election date change, and can read the writing on the polling wall.
Then Jagmeet Singh and the Federal NDP who are opposition to the government & in a non-coalition coalition with the same minority government…supporting the same government that they’re in opposition to while being the opposition to the opposition (?) have become toxic to their provincial counterparts. You’d think that would be a sign for the federal NDP but not so much it seems…
…& here we are coming up on the April Fools mandatory carbon tax increase. What will the NDP do? They’ll attack the actual real opposition to the government.

As of April 1, every time you open your fridge, every time you fill up your car, and every time you pay for the roof over your family’s head, the Liberal NDP Coalition that nobody asked for will now be coming for even more of your hard-earned wages, at a time when millions of Canadians have already been forced onto the precipice of economic ruin.
1712061101515.jpegYou almost have to give Justin Trudeau credit for accomplishing the impossible: That’s now twice in his calamitous and divisive tenure that he’s inspired often servile Canadians to come together, en masse, in protest of far-left policies of self-sabotage that only exist for the benefit of a vanishing few.
The truck horns may not be blaring this time, but those same resentments are growing. Canadians are feeling the squeeze from the boot of big government on their neck, and an overwhelming majority have reached a breaking point.

And what choice, really, do Canadians have but polite revolution, when our Cost-of-Liberal crisis has gotten this far out of hand?
Staving off an election, and a vote of non-confidence amidst the cruellest carbon tax hike yet, was no “win” for the Liberals, but perhaps it was the literal definition of a pyrrhic victory: which is defined as a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it’s tantamount to defeat; the wounds accrued turn out to be fatal.
These wounds may take months, perhaps more than likely they’ll fester into the fall of 2025, when the Liberals and the NDP have chosen to prioritize the delaying of the scheduled election by one week to provide golden parachutes and pensions to the MPs bound for the shellacking of a lifetime, yet fatal they will be.

It was Trudeau’s latest pre-budget news conference, and this one was focused on housing. Like his announcements on the “renters bill of rights” and a national school food program, the measures Trudeau is looking to introduce in housing are clearly provincial jurisdiction.

Like those other two program announcements, the Trudeau government didn’t consult with provinces ahead of time.

The real problem, though, is that while Trudeau is once again dabbling in areas of provincial jurisdiction, he’s ignoring the issues that he is responsible for. If you don’t think that matters, just consider the impact immigration is having on all three of these issues – rental markets, housing costs and the general cost of living.

Last week, Statistics Canada announced that our population had crossed the 41 million mark, a feat accomplished just nine months after we crossed over the 40 million mark.

Imagine that, we added 1 million people in nine months, in the middle of a housing crisis, at a time when Canadians don’t have access to family doctors, when our health-care system is stretched and when wages are not keeping up with inflation. Trudeau even stated that he’s worried about the rapid growth suppressing wages when asked about the impact of immigration during his news conference.

“Increasingly, more and more businesses are relying on temporary foreign workers in a way that is driving down wages in some sectors,” Trudeau said.

Could that be why more people are at food banks, need help with things like school food programs?

Asked about the impact of immigration on housing costs, Trudeau seemed shocked at how high the numbers are. While he defended the nearly 500,000 permanent residents Canada brings in each year, he said in other areas the numbers are too high?? Maybe he should speak to the government about that???

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen a massive spike in temporary immigration, whether it’s temporary foreign workers or whether it’s international students, in particular, that have grown at a rate far beyond what Canada has been able to absorb,” Trudeau said.

“To give an example, in 2017, 2% of Canada’s population was made up of temporary immigrants, now we’re at 7.5% of our population comprised of temporary immigrants. That’s something that we need to get back under control.”

Now, if only he knew someone he could call to fix that.
Who is in charge of immigration again?

That’s right, it’s Marc Miller, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. Miller is a minister in Trudeau’s government, which means he reports to Trudeau and carries out Trudeau’s policies.

Yet, here we have the PM acting surprised at the massive spike in immigration when it was his government that allowed this to happen????

This massive immigration spike has had a horrible impact on the rental market across the country but especially in major cities. And with this spike in immigration happening during an already existing housing crisis, it has had an impact on housing affordability, as well.

Could it possibly be that when families need to spend more and more of their income on housing, they have less money for food?

Which brings me back to why it’s important for Trudeau to pay attention to the things he’s responsible for, rather than running around the country trying to be premier of each and every province.

Trudeau dropping the ball on immigration didn’t create any of these problems. They were, however, made worse by his government’s complete negligence on this file.

A country in the middle of a housing and affordability crisis cannot import 1 million new people every nine months and expect to solve this major problem.

It’s time to hit pause, on Trudeau’s provincial interference and on Canada’s massive immigration numbers.

I’m NOT against immigration, but there’s a difference between what is happening and controlled growth. What is happening isn’t helping.

Well O'Leary was absolutely right when he said in a couple of interviews that we have an "incompetent government" run by a bunch of morons. He included the U.S. as well. He stated that none of the bozo's (my words) have any "management experience" and don't have a clue what they're doing because they are so uninformed & inept at their portfolios.

I couldn't agree with him more!

Doesn't the government provide housing and essentially pay rent which is a big driver of rental property shortages and rent increases?

It's a deal that never ends replaced by the next in line once eligibility expires.

I'd jump up and yelling "hooray for Trudeau" if they imported a million skilled tradesmen rather than a million Indian IT techs.

MP Anthony Housefather says he will remain in the Liberal caucus despite his concerns about the party's support for a motion on Palestinian statehood.

"The adoption of the motion and all the events that preceded it have angered me as much as they angered most of the Jewish Canadians that I have communicated with," the Montreal MP said in a press release late Friday.

"But I also know that my core values remain Liberal ones and after serious reflection, I believe my greatest value to Canadians is staying in caucus to advocate for the centrist classical Liberal Party that I believe in."
Sick. 🤢

Well, that makes sense, anyhow. I mean, who really gives a flying fuck what Canaduh thinks about the Israel-Gaza kerfuffle?
Well, that’s a good question, and the answer is the approximately 5% of Muslim Canadians that predominantly live in large urban centres…potentially as swing votes in tight ridings for the Liberal/NDP or NDP/Liberal parties. That’s it in a nutshell.
Canadian taxpayers. But the left hates us as much, or more than they hate Israel.
5% of Muslims in Canada is larger than 2% of the Jewish in Canada, regardless of…etc…
Note that they are being forced by their own ineptitude to finally attempt to curry favour with voters. But not necessarily taxpayers.
“On Monday the NDP/Liberals have a motion that it pitches as a call for a ceasefire. It does so without demanding Hamas surrender & no longer rule Gaza. It also calls for a litany of other things hostile to Israel. Changing foreign policy to reward a terrorist attack. Not smart,” said Liberal MP Anthony Housefather, on X.
There won't be peace until Hamas issues a climate policy.
The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs launched a petition in opposition to the motion, saying it “threatens Canada’s values, foreign policy, and support of Israel, while giving Hamas what it wants: recognition and support.”
On March 18, when the prime minister and his caucus overwhelmingly supported a motion brought to the House of Commons by NDP/Liberal foreign affairs critic Heather McPherson. Initially, the motion called for Canada to “officially” recognize the “State of Palestine,” along with calling for a ban on military exports to Israel and the release of “all” hostages, which McPherson takes to include Palestinians held in Israeli prisons for committing crimes, including acts of terrorism.
Of course Liberal MP Salma Zahid has said she will vote in favour of the motion.
Amid much drama, the original wording of the motion was modified to remove recognition of a Palestinian state, replacing that with support for “a negotiated two-state solution” so that Trudeau and the less overtly pro-Hamas members of his caucus would vote for it.
The Liberal/NDP have been in talks with the NDP/Liberals about amending the motion, although it’s unknown what the contents of the amendment would be, iPolitics reported on Saturday.
The House of Commons is scheduled to vote on the motion Monday afternoon.
The motion passed with overwhelming support of the NDP/Liberals, all but three of the Liberal/NDP, plus the Bloc & both/all Greens. Opposing were three Liberals & the Conservatives. Well, there’s no way you can take.

On Oct. 7, 2023, Hamas attacked Israeli soldiers and civilians, unprovoked, and went on a mad spree of torture and murder. Palestinian civilians also partook in all aspects of the savagery and looting. For hours and with no mercy. Simply put, Hamas started a war, after breaking the existing cease-fire.

By promoting the Islamist agenda of Hamas in this critical historical moment, the Canadian government has openly aligned with forces that promote the establishment of a global caliphate.

Hamas — and its companion Islamist organizations, Hezbollah, the Houthis and the Islamic Republic of Iran — openly call for the annihilation of Israel and the killing of all Jews. If one has any doubt regarding the veracity of this comment, I suggest that they watch the 47 minutes (referring to the the 47-minute compilation of raw footage taken that morning from body and GoPro cams of Hamas murderers, Palestinian civilians who joined the killing spree and the phones of the victims). Or read the charters of any one of these groups. Or listen to their leaders speak. They are not at all shy about declaring their intentions to destroy Israel, murder all Jews and, over time, achieve the Islamization of the world. And that includes Canada.

Tellingly, throughout the 47 minutes, the Hamas killers refer to corpses of the murdered as ”Jews,” “dogs” and “settlers.” Not once do they refer to them as Israelis. They cannot bring themselves to utter the word. The victims are utterly dehumanized and demonized.

Polls taken since Oct. 7 confirm that 71 per cent of Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip support the massacre. Calls to repeat the slaughter have been all over social media, but most chilling was the promise of Hamas political bureau official Ghazi Hamad that there will be repeats of Oct. 7, until Israel is annihilated. This is just one of many examples of incitement to commit genocide that seem to have gone unnoticed by McPherson and Canadian MPs.
Earlier this week, there was a horribly tragic accident in which Israeli drones targeted three vehicles operated by the international NGO World Central Kitchen. In spite of having had its route along the humanitarian corridor pre-approved by the Israel Defence Forces, the attack occurred and seven humanitarian aid workers, including one Canadian, were killed.

That this event transpired as it did is deeply disturbing to Israelis. Interviewed on Israel’s Channel 12 on April 3, World Central Kitchen founder and celebrity chef José Andrés was beyond eloquent, stating: “The airstrikes on our convoy, I don’t think were an unfortunate mistake. It was really a direct attack on clearly marked vehicles whose movements were known by everybody at the IDF.…

Tragic mistakes (If that’s what happened?) do happen in war. Among them the American strike on an Afghan hospital in Kunduz in 2015, which killed 42 innocents. The United States took responsibility and apologized. Israel did the same regarding the Gaza.

From Oct. 7, Israel made clear that the return of all hostages immediately may avert an armed conflict. But for Hamas, the Al-Aqsa Flood was just beginning.

Immediately following the vote supporting her motion, McPherson, sporting a keffiyeh — which has become the international sartorial symbol of Palestinian statehood and triumphalism over Israel — back-slapped other MPs also wearing keffiyehs. It was unmitigated joy all round, reminiscent of the partying in Mississauga, Montreal and elsewhere in Canada on Oct. 7.
