I see Pierre-Karl Péladeau's decision to run for the Parti Quebecois in the Quebec election has sent shockwaves rolling across the country.
With some in the media predicting trouble for Stephen Harper and his ghastly Con regime.
Pierre Karl Péladeau’s emergence as a superstar Parti Québécois candidate represents a seismic shock for not only Quebec politics. The millionaire media mogul’s decision to actively promote sovereignty threatens to rock Stephen Harper’s government and possibly the entire country.
But nobody seems to be pointing out that the greatest threat to national unity is Stephen Harper himself.
Two days ago in the freezing cold of this never-ending winter, I noticed a swan lying weak from hunger on the frozen lake, while its partner looked anxiously on.
Unable to understand what was happening, why there is almost no open water this year. No place to draw the food from it needs to survive.
I did my best to revive it by hand feeding it baby spinach leaves, but it was only strong enough to eat a couple, before it tucked its head into its feathers and went back to sleep again.
And when I went back to feed it today I found it had died.

Well they're not pretty, but they are fanatics, they'll do anything for their deranged leader.
Dark and dirty things that have turned our country into a horror show.
But don't bother asking how much Stephen Harper pays his grubby PMO gang, his little monsters.
Because that's a state secret.
Well it wasn't a total surprise, but it was still a stunning sight.
Pauline Marois and her new star candidate Pierre-Karl Péladeau
Pierre-Karl Péladeau, controlling shareholder of the Quebecor media empire, on Sunday announced he will run for the Parti Québécois, saying his top motivation is to make Quebec independent.
“My joining the Parti Québécois is tied to my most intimate and profound values and that is to say I want Quebec to become a country,” he told supporters in the riding of St-Jérôme, just north of Montreal, where he will be running in the April 7 provincial election.

Oh boy. Talk about a roller coaster of emotions eh?
Yesterday I wrote a post about Vic Toews being appointed as a judge in Manitoba's top trial court.
And although it's a horrible story, about an appalling choice, I had a little fun with it...
Because I like to mock the Cons as well as criticize them.
And because politically speaking, Vic Toews does exist somewhere in the dead zone between neanderthal and right-wing zombie.
So you can imagine how stunned I was to see this story.

Uh oh. It looks as if Pierre Poilievre's demagogic defence of the foul Fair Elections Act, also known as the Voter Suppression Bill, is going down in flames.
Because now that sinister Con fanatic is batting ZERO for FOUR.

It's a horrible nightmare. I'm driving down a country road in rural Manitoba on a dark and stormy night, when my car breaks down.
And before I know it I'm forced to run for my life.
But I make it into this small hamlet, report the zombie invasion to the bubbah sheriff.
Only to be arrested and dragged before Judge Toews.
It couldn't have been a more revolting spectacle. Canada's Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand called to testify before a House of Commons committee.
To talk about the foul voter suppression bill known as the Fair Elections Act, and the Harper regime's attempts to muzzle him.
Only to have the Cons try to muzzle him again, by breaking a deal they had with the opposition, and scheduling a vote in the Commons, just as Mayrand was preparing to address the committee.
Which had even the MSM gasping in disbelief.
I'm glad the mother of Cpl. Justin Stark decided to speak out about the one-cent cheque the government sent her dead son.
And that the Cons were forced to apologize, for the pain that was caused.
The mother of a dead Hamilton, Ont., soldier who received a cheque for one cent from the federal government has accepted an apology from Defence Minister Rob Nicholson but said the incident has reopened wounds.
So hopefully it doesn't happen again, because it has happened before.

Well it seems like I've been waiting forever, but Olivia Chow is finally ready to begin her campaign to become the next Mayor of Toronto.
After a year of careful preparation, Olivia Chow is finally ready to enter what is fast shaping up as a tough race to become Toronto’s next mayor.
Chow is fully expected to file her formal nomination papers at city hall during the week of March 17 and will immediately release her complete campaign platform, which is being described as “ambitious, surprising and bold.”
