It's amazing how worked up the opposition parties are getting in forming their inconsequential stances on the new terror bill. The NDP is going to vote against it. Probably. And smart people are starting to point out that the criminalization of language is a scary thing. And here.
Venezuela is accusing us of participating in a failed coup attempt. Silly Venezuelans. Don't they realize that if we had actually participated, it would have been successful?
Leona! On fire! Calling Don Cherry out for a joke about seal hunting. The nerve of that man. How dare he turn his machine of offense against something we proud Conservatives believe in. For some reason. I mean we don't give a shit about the aboriginal population otherwise, but fuck you if we're not going to come to their defence if you're going to talk about a commercial seal hunt that way! Oh fuck. They rip her to shreds with replies.
Mohamed Fahmy is not happy with our dear leader Steve and John Baird. He blames them for his long stay in prison. Fuck. That's enough to get you labelled a terrorist. And get your Conservative talking points straight. He's a "whiner" and "Canadian of convenience".
Speaking of which. In Baird's departure, somehow Poilievre gets a promotion.
Interesting take. The spin the Cons have put on Eve Adams (we didn't want her) doesn't really stand up. She was still parliamentary secretary. If she was so awful, why not shuffle her to the outer fringes of the backbench? As well, in the run-up to the last BC Election, Bill Tileman wrote an article about how the BC NDP needed to fight dirty. I wasn't sure if I agreed with him at the time. But he ended up being right. I think Demetri Soudas is an asshole. But he's probably going to help the Liberals. And it looks like Eve Adams is to run against Joe Oliver? Oh man. I like it. Will they turn it into Kerrigan/Harding, only to have an un-hyped 3rd Party steal gold?
The TPP negotiations are moving ahead. Next steps: Expansion of copyright terms and criminalization of file sharing. Seems important for the good of the world.
A Conservative minister embraced science! Rona Ambrose lashes out at anti-vaxxers.
Joe Oliver decided to lecture Greece and Europe on how to fix things. Which is truly amazing.
Lawyers won't have to spy on their clients finances on behalf of the government.
Details of how terrible a veteran has it in dealing with the government.
Damn whippersnappers! Wanting everything for free! I didn't get anything free in my day! After I graduated high school, it took me weeks to find my management job. And it took a full 3 years salary to afford my first house. Damn whippersnappers. Probably want to scale back the CPP and healthcare next. Wanting everything for free!
Fuck you, America! You got nothin' on us now. Sun News shuts down. Blames the government for not forcing it upon us.
Russian Bank faces sanctions. Russian Bank hires John Baird's former chief of staff. Russian Bank no longer faces sanctions. Granted, he was chief of staff for Baird a long time ago...and was hired for the sole purpose of accomplishing this very task...it kind of stinks a bit though, no?
Peter McKay's friends and wedding guests are all going on to extremely successful government sponsored legal careers.
Gun nuts continue their freak out over High River flood temporary gun seizures. So...RCMP taking firearms bad. RCMP and others as secret anti-terror police good?
We paid $180,000 to run an office that didn't do anything.
