In my last post I ran a video by John Oliver, where he strongly suggested that Justin Trudeau had apologized enough for elbowgate.
And that it was all just a tempest in a very Canadian teapot.
Now it seems that's also what most Canadians believe.

I think that most sensible Canadians understand that elbowgate isn't a real scandal.
No matter how loudly Ruth Ellen Brosseau screamed, or tried to look as if she had been shot.
And that by trying to make a huge deal out of it the opposition is just looking ridiculous.
So I'm glad to see that John Oliver also believes the same thing.
After more than six months of self imposed silence, Canadians are about to hear from Stephen Harper again.
When in three days time he delivers a speech to the Con Convention.
But if he is expecting to be greeted with cries of "Steve we miss you." Or "save us Great Leader."
He may be rudely disappointed.
Donald Trump may be looking and sounding crazier than ever. Calling for guns to be allowed in classrooms.
While also calling for Hillary Clinton's bodyguards to be disarmed.
But despite his deranged statements, polls suggest his support is surging.

I don't think the so-called two-four long weekend has ever come at a better time in the whole history of Canada.
So we can all recover from that act of collective madness that was the elbowgate affair. For it has been a real nightmare.
The Trudeau haters have been howling at the moon, screaming for Justin Trudeau's blood, or just talking crazy.

Sometimes when I hear the Harper Party, the Mulcair Party, and all the other Trudeau haters going after Justin Trudeau with blood in their eyes, and foam in their mouths.
I can't decide whether I'm living in the New Canada, the liberated Harperland.
Or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
And now to make matters even worse, here comes our own Marie Antoinette, the Queen of the Plagiarists, Margaret Wente herself.
We all saw Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the House of Commons trying to physically block the Con whip from returning to his seat.
And then after getting accidentally elbowed by Justin Trudeau, carrying on as if she had been shot.
Now she's being used by the Con media to damage Trudeau's image abroad.

It was a very sad and contrite looking Justin Trudeau yesterday, apologizing over and over again for his behaviour in the House of Commons.
And if you relied on our Con media you might think that his political career had been damaged beyond repair. Or that his sunny days were over.
But when I looked beyond most of the MSM, I found a very different situation.
One that leads me to believe that the so-called elbowgate affair will not only NOT damage Justin Trudeau, it may even make him more popular.

It's the ugliest picture of the whole so-called
The Commons is in an uproar, Justin Trudeau has apologized as a decent person should,
And there standing in the gaggle of NDP MPs is Tom Mulcair grinning like a hairy ape.
As expected the National Energy Board has approved the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
The National Energy Board (NEB) has recommended approval of the controversial Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion project, subject to a whopping 157 environmental, financial and technical conditions.
But although the decision grates, it is predictable, because the NEB is stacked with Harper appointees.
And the good news is that Justin Trudeau and the people of BC can still make sure that pipeline is never built.
