Hmmm….Jagmeet is coming out as the opposition to the other opposition to the government. Weirdly….weird.They were scared of him before, but after THAT result and THAT speech... they know they're in the deepest of deep crap and PP is going to be out there pretty quick creating his own image in the minds of those who haven't heard of him and they can't let that happen.
The Liberals and the New Democratic Party (NDP) wasted no time in attacking new Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre on the first day of the fall session in Parliament.
In a rare move, the NDP put out an attack ad on social media on Tuesday responding to Poilievre’s claims that he is fighting for the people and instead attempting to portray the new leader of the official opposition as being cozy with the elites and “big business” like SNC Lavatory or Irving Shipbuilding….that Bastard!!
“He’s not in it for you,” reads the script in the 29-second long video two times (…& he’s talking about Pierre Poilievre by the way).
Melanie Richer, director of communications for the NDP, told the National Post that the goal for the party was to get their message across just before Poilievre took the floor of the House of Commons as leader of the Conservatives to talk about inflation and the cost of living.
“I think that Pierre Poilievre has been trying to reframe himself as somebody who’s in it for people. And we’ve seen clearly that that’s not true,” said Richer?
Unfortunately, Ottawa’s commitment to fiscal restraint died with the mayflies
“He’s never going to go after corporate greed and he’s never going to make your salaries better. So he says a lot of things, makes a lot of noise, but he’s not actually doing anything concretely to make things better for people,” she added.
NDP deputy leader Alexandre Boulerice said that Poilievre talks a lot about the price of food going up, rightly so, but that he would never dare to speak up against big corporations in the food industry which are making “record profits” right now on the backs of consumers.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, so his first confrontation in question period against Poilievre will not happen before Thursday.
But that didn’t stop his ministers, who were up against Poilievre for the first time since he became leader. They spent the better part of their first question period touting “real solutions?” to the cost of living crisis but the were in turn ridiculed by Poilievre.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approach to making life more affordable is like giving somebody a bike after totaling their car and then waiting for a big thank you. Instead of reversing his recent tax hikes, Trudeau’s latest crack at making life more affordable includes GST rebates and...
Minister of Families (?), Karina Gould, spoke about the agreements on child care made with all provinces and territories which would save families “thousands of dollars that are going to help them with the high cost of living?”
“Those are real solutions,” she said?
Poilievre shot back right away. “Canadians can’t even afford to have a family in the first place,” he said. “They can’t get out of their parents’ basements or the 400 square foot apartments after housing prices have literally doubled in this country under this prime minister.”
Housing Minister Ahmed Hussen also chimed in that the Liberals had proposed “real solutions” — like the housing accelerator or the first-time homebuyer tax credit. But Poilievre countered that Canada had the “second worst housing bubble of any country on planet Earth.”
