The Liberals have been accusing the Conservatives of "turning their backs on Ukraine," and now the party is making that argument in attack ads running in more than a dozen Prairie ridings that are home to large Ukrainian communities.

The newspaper ads appearing in 18 Conservative-held ridings say Opposition Leader Pierre Poilievre and his party are abandoning the war-torn country because they voted against a bill to implement a “modernized” Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement….The Canadian-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement Brought in by the Conservatives…under Harper.

"The Conservatives would like to vote against anything that includes the word 'carbon,' and that was just caught in that file,"

Poilievre has repeatedly defended his party's track record on Ukraine in the House of Commons, arguing that his party pushed for Canada to send Ukraine lethal weaponry even before Russia launched its full-scale invasion early last year and promising that "we will stand for Ukrainians."

So what’s different now in Trudeau’s “modernization” of this already existing Canadian-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement?

The Liberals have been trying to make hay out of the Tories' position on the Ukraine trade deal for weeks.

With their new campaign, they are explicitly linking the Conservative MPs to what the newspaper ads describe as "far-right politicians" in the United States -- and not for the first time.

Against that backdrop, Trudeau has accused Poilievre of playing into the Kremlin's hands.

His government House leader, Karina Gould, claimed in a recent interview with The Canadian Press that in a way, it's a "gift" for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As a Ukrainian-Canadian, I object to funds being sent to the Ukraine, especially until the "dictator" is removed from office & all corruption is destroyed! Then & only then would I support "some" funds going to the Ukraine. Right now, our emphasis should be on Israel & supporting them. The Russia/Ukraine situation could be resolved now but it's obvious the American Military Industrial Complex don't want that as it's money in their pockets. Disgusting & bad for everyone involved, especially for the Ukrainians who have been deceived by the world & the Palestinians who are held hostage to Hamas.

This will backfire on Trudeau.
Oh coarse it will, and be buried by another scandal, and that one by another, and that one by another, etc…

Liberals MPs spent Wednesday evening doing damage control in the wake of news reports about a politically embarrassing video of a Palestinian terror leader thanking Canada for supporting a ceasefire in Gaza.

A video statement released earlier this week by senior Hamas leader Dr. Ghazi Hamad thanked Canada for their controversial support of a non-binding United Nations resolution calling for a ceasefire in war-torn Gaza — referring to a joint statement issued by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alongside his Australian and New Zealand counterparts calling for a “sustainable ceasefire” between Israel and Hamas.

“We want to see this pause resumed and support urgent international efforts towards a sustainable ceasefire,” read the joint statement.

Previous statements by Hamad suggest he’s not interested in peace, telling Lebanese TV in October that the goal of Hamas was to eliminate Israel, and that the Oct. 7 atrocities committed by his group would be committed “again and again”

In a statement, Consul-General of Israel in Toronto Idit Shamir described the Hamas thank-you as a “chilling wake-up call” for Canada.

“Pushing for a ceasefire blindly ignores the grim truth: it only paves the way for more wars, bloodshed and tragedies,” she said.

“Hamas’s track record speaks volumes — they exploit ceasefires to regroup, fortify their control over Gaza, rearm, and unleash attacks on innocents.”

Hamas broke an existing ceasefire to launch their Oct. 7 attacks, she said, and said that actions like Canada’s accomplish little but “send the wrong message.” Oh well.

Deputy Conservative Party leader Melissa Lantsman accused her fellow MP of standing by while her government irresponsibly advocated for an unconditional ceasefire.

In a statement, Lantsman described the PM’s vote for such a ceasefire as “repugnant.”

“What is more shameful is the Liberals’ desperate attempts pretend to be upset,” she said.

“Their vote was a conscious, intentional decision on the part of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government to play politics after they learned about their donations drying up and serves as yet another reminder that they will say anything you want to hear only to betray you.”

One thing True Dope has in common with Jabba the Trump. By design or by sheer shitheadedness, the scandals come so thick and fast you can't keep track of (or properly investigate) any one of 'em.
It so cool you hate your country because you were told to....you rock.

The difference...... Trudeau actually did what he did. It wasn't fiction put forth by paid Madison Ave shills.

NDP's Jagmeet Singh rules out coalition government with Liberals after next election. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is ruling out the possibility of forming a coalition government with the Liberals if no party wins a clear majority after the next federal election??? What?

I know, chickens hatching, but holy cow, Jagmeet’s words & this amalgamation of all of the current polls in Canada are during the same week…

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is ruling out the possibility of forming a coalition government with the Liberals if no party wins a clear majority after the next federal election.
“That's not something that we're focused on. We're focused on getting enough done in this Parliament and then running to win.”
1703812659580.jpeg
Jagmeet Singh is ruling out a coalition with the Trudeau Liberals after the next election but appears happy to stay in the current coalition.

The parties (being the NDP/Liberals & the Liberal/NDP’s) agreed to keep their agreement in place until 2025, no matter what it seems, with a federal election slated to take place by October of that year.
Singh said the agreement gave him the chance to see (& smell?) the Liberals up close, and to see how much power the federal government has to make life better for Canadians.

“I'm more motivated than ever before that I want to become the next prime minister. That's my goal.”
Despite being able to take “some” credit for moves the Liberals have made, the NDP hasn’t benefited from their coalition arrangement with the Trudeau government.

Yes, all the Liberal and NDP supporters insisting there is no existing coalition, but more of a non-coalition coalition that’s definitely NOT a coalition-type coalition at all. They like to claim this is simply a supply and confidence agreement and without any NDP MPs in the cabinet, it couldn’t possibly be a coalition-type coalition, right?

It’s a nice semantic game claiming there is no coalition but the facts state otherwise. The Cambridge University defines a coalition as “a group formed of different organizations or people who agree to act together, usually temporarily, to achieve something.”

That is exactly what the Liberals and NDP have been doing since they signed their Axis of Weasels coalition agreement in March 2022 officially immediately after stepping on the Honk-Honk Parking situation in Ottawa in February 2022, after weeks to months of unofficially finishing each other’s sentences. Seriously.

Trudeau doesn’t need to worry about the NDP asking pesky questions or working with the Conservatives or Bloc Quebecois to force the government’s hand on sticky issues. Singh is Trudeau’s puppet in many ways – he will protest how bad he thinks the Trudeau government is but then vote to keep them in power time and again.

It’s dangerous to make predictions in politics, but it is safe to say that Jagmeet Singh will never be prime minister.

How can voters take him seriously as a candidate in the next election when he rails against the Trudeau government as having failed Canadians, when he pledges not to work with them in the future, while being the only reason they have remained in power over the last several years.

Not only will Singh never be prime minister, he won’t even be leader of the opposition unless Trudeau does even more damage to the Liberal brand than he has already.

Singh will continue to have Sikh terrorist support and win a few seats on that but the hi-jinks as a stay at home dad masquerading as a concerned leader of a political party is wearing thin and has basically killed off the NDP party. Of course he needs to differentiate now to attempt to appear as an alternative with an election coming. Expecting a second child soon I understand. Last seen in 2020.

And where is Elizabeth May while all this is going on?

Still time for a Western Coalition to ramp up and win seats in the next election. Annamie Paul would be a good potential leader.

It would result in better representation.

The Men of Westernesse will prevail!

If not, they'll take their ball and their bat and go home.
If not the West will find themselves behind not only the Conservative stronghold of southern Ontario as always but also Quebec on the list of priorities as Poilievre will cater to the Bloc to gain popularity.
