The Con Clown Cheryl Gallant Disgraces Herself Again



As I like to say every time I write about Cheryl Gallant, this is all you really need to know about that ghastly Con clown:

She's a religious fanatic, and a brutish anti-gay and anti-Muslim bigot. She told wounded soldiers suffering from PTSD that any stigma was in their heads. She has compared abortion to a terrorist beheading.

She has heaped scorn on Atlantic Canadians who earn their living on the sea, for depending on the Coast Guard to rescue them. She calls environmentalists plant eaters, regularly compares the Liberals to the Nazis.

And needless to say is always disgracing herself.

Stephen Harper and the Treason of the Cons



When Stephen Harper stumbled into the night after his humiliating election defeat at the hands of Justin Trudeau, I thought it would be a long long time before we saw or heard from him again.

And for almost two years that seemed to be the case, as he kept a very low profile, or only came out after midnight.

But now the Omar Khadr settlement has roused him from his crypt.

And he's back and as ugly as ever.

Justin Trudeau, Omar Khadr, and the Monster Stephen Harper



I've been having too much of a good time sailing and fishing in the north of Scotland to keep up with what has been happening in Canada.

But everywhere I go, as soon as people find out I'm a Canadian, they can't wait to tell me how much they admire Justin Trudeau.

And how they wish he was their prime minister.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out that Trudeau is in trouble back home.

Omar Khadr and the Day of Justice



I've written many posts about the case of Omar Khadr. I consider the way that Canadian child soldier was treated by his own government to be one of the worst legal travesties in modern Canadian history.

And one that should shame us all.

So I'm glad to see that he is finally going to get some justice. 

And as usual, I am disgusted by the reaction of Cons like Jason Kenney.

Donald Trump and the Hijacking of the Presidency



As you know today is July the Fourth, or Independence Day in the United States.

But as you also know, many of our good neighbours have very little or nothing to celebrate this year.

With the look on the face of the Statue of Liberty no doubt even more sombre than the day it arrived in America.



With the country's presidency hijacked.

My Fabulous Canada Day Long Weekend



Well I must say my Canada 150 long weekend was about 150% better than I had hoped it would be.

The music and the fireworks were amazing. Some friends from Montreal were staying with me, so I was able to party in both official languages.

And for the first time I felt that our other founding nations were being recognized at last.

Justin Trudeau and the Absurd Alberta Kerfuffle



I thought Justin Trudeau did a great job of presiding over the Canada Day festivities in Ottawa, as well as representing the spirit of the new generation.

But as you probably know, he made a small mistake. 

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a speech to a cheering crowd in Ottawa Saturday, highlighting the diversity and kinship of all the provinces and territories. However, he failed to mention one major Canadian province in his speech — Alberta.

And even though he quickly apologized, the ghastly Cons and other Trudeau haters in this country tried to turn it into a big deal.

Now Donald Trump Is Accused of Threatening The Media



In my last post I looked at Trump's frenzied assault on the media. And I wondered whether he was crazy or evil. 

Well now we know that he is both.

After he posted this deranged tweet.

Is Donald Trump Crazy Or Evil?



It's the elephant or the monster in the room. The question that should haunt us all. Is Donald Trump mad or bad or both?

For there he was yesterday morning, attacking the media again.



Trying to intimidate it into submission, like a rabid beast, or a would be dictator.

Only to tell a gathering of religious fanatics a few hours later, that the media are  trying to silence HIM.

Canada Day: Is It True Canadians Don't Know How To Party?



I must admit I'm in a mood to party, I've got so many reasons to celebrate.

The regatta season has begun. I've just graduated from more than two months of rehab to fully recover from my motorcycle accident. So I can finally join them out there this weekend.

I'm off to Europe next week, and I'm taking you with me.

And of course the best reason of all to party is that today is Canada's 150th birthday.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to see this recent story in the New York Times.
