The video shows Trudeau’s head pasted on top of Veruca Salt, a character from the 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” in which she throws a fit for not getting what she wants.

Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) was not available for an immediate comment.

Trudeau is planning a snap election for Sept. 20 and is expected to make the announcement on Sunday, Reuters reported this week, as the ruling Liberals push for a vote two years ahead of schedule.


A survey by Abacus on Thursday put the Liberals at 37% and the Conservatives at 28%.

“Well, I suspect I was never getting your vote, but I agree that video is dumb. Sadly they don’t ask me my opinion on these things…,” Ontario CPC MP Scott Aitchison wrote on Twitter in response to a reader who asked whether the ad would get people to vote for the Conservatives.

Name the one Liberal initiative that Parliament has denied to Justin Trudeau and his party because they have a minority government.
http://torontosun.com/opinion/colum...ants-to-be-even-less-accountable-to-canadians There isn’t one. Every time the minority Liberals have wanted an expansion of the already enormous federal budget, one of the other toady leftist parties has obliged by casting their lot with the Trudeau-ites.

I guess the Liberals kinda, sorta didn’t get the internet censorship bill they wanted. But it was the Senate that held up its passage, not the Commons. The Liberals even got away with proroguing Parliament last summer to kill the committee investigations into the ultra-close ties between the WE Charity organization and the prime minister’s family. And for most of the time since the last federal election way back in the fall of 2019, the PM has prevented Parliament from convening in-person to scrutinize is government.

So why is Justin Trudeau calling an election, expected to be announced Sunday? The only reason is the Liberals think there is a good chance they could grasp even more power with a majority and be even less accountable to Parliament and Canadians. The rest of this article at the above LINK.

Well Kids....sounds like JT has wandered over from the Parliamentary Cottage to Rideau Hall for tea with the Newest GG....according to the radio he's there right now....

You would have thought that they learned from the ads they had of "He's not ready" - that didn't work at all (even tho' he's STILL not ready) but people perceived that as not being very "nice". So, even if there is some truth, one must make sure they attack policies, not personalities.

This election is going to be a bit of a conundrum since I have no one to vote for. I will not vote for any party whose leader comes from east of Manitoba, since they will just screw the west even more. Hopefully wither Wexit, an independent, or libertarians run a candidate here.
I onece voted for the Pirate Party since their candidate was the only one that told the truth at the all candidates meeting here.

20 September, apparently.
OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plunged Canada into a federal election campaign on Sunday after Gov. Gen. Mary Simon agreed to dissolve Parliament and set voting day for Sept. 20. http://www.thestar.com/politics/fed...stin-trudeau-will-call-an-election-today.html

The official start of the 36-day summertime campaign ends weeks of speculation about whether Trudeau would pull the plug on the 43rd parliament he called “dysfunctional” while claiming he did not want an election until Canada got through the COVID-19 pandemic that is now seeing a fourth wave of infections.

In May, Trudeau voted with nearly all MPs against a pandemic election. At that time he said “nobody wants an election before the end of this pandemic.”

Of course but do you expect his bought and paid for media will remind the people ?

Nope. I noticed CBC is already pimping Trudeau.
I try to pull my new sources from a variety of different places to get an idea of different opinions. If I’m trying to find the extreme left leaning apologetic side of things…. the CBC is the go to….

I read new stories from the right and the left and what comes across as the centre.
I will read stuff from this forum and from Reddit also.

yesterday morning after this announcement on Reddit there was already 2200 comments and when I skimmed the first 150 or 200 it was amazing how many people (Young people I’m assuming from eastern Canada) stated that they were pissed off this was happening at all and that they were going to vote NDP…. Now whether or not those people get off their couches or is anybody’s guess but we will figure that one out in about 35 days give or take due to mail in votes….
