It was such a beautiful day, the first real day of Spring, that I spent hours pedalling around my magic island, out of touch with the rest of the world.
So it wasn't until I met the
Is it time to put Jim Flaherty’s picture on a milk carton? The federal finance minister has not graced the House of Commons with his presence since he presented his 2013 budget a month ago.
For a federal finance minister to drop off the parliamentary radar for a full month is rare. When that month happens to immediately follow the presentation of the budget, it is unheard of.
So I did the only thing I could think of eh?
And put out an
Only to realize when I got home, that Jimbo isn't missing, he's HIDING !!!!
Canadian policymakers should consider easing up on austerity measures while the economy is weak and vulnerable to shock, says the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The report suggested that Ottawa loosen austerity measures around mechanisms to stimulate growth, such as unemployment insurance, if the economy continues to weaken.
And who can blame him eh? Real economists are telling him to ease up, but he's doing exactly the opposite. Killing jobs, slashing services, and squeezing the unemployed. So no wonder he doesn't dare show his face. If I was him I'd wear a burka. Or resign before he's arrested for gross incompetence.
But here's the bizarre part. Jimbo wasn't the only Con missing in action today. Stephen Harper was also nowhere to be seen.
But of course, I knew how to find HIM. I just followed our new ambassador to Jordan.
The RCMP officer in charge of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s security is to be appointed as Canada’s ambassador to Jordan. Supt. Bruno Saccomani, who has been in charge of the prime minister's security team since 2009, will also be overlooking affairs in Iraq.
Great Patronage Leader's most outstanding appointment...
Last year, leaked documents revealed many working under Saccomani saw him as bully; the prime minister defended him then, as the government did Thursday.
Since Mike Duffy.
And sure enough, it wasn't long before I found Great
Sulking in his War Room.
Screaming at his voodoo dolly...
Still claiming his attack ads had made Justin Trudeau look like a girly man. Even though the reviews have been positively devastating.
Not everyone wants to spend their youthful years following the career of Margaret Thatcher, bosom buddy of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet — as Harper did, according to the Encyclopedia of World Biography.
Attack ads are stupid and childish. They don’t reflect poorly on the person attacked — they only reflect on the attacker...The ads also suggest that the attacker is running scared, feeling threatened and maybe even a little desperate.
So no wonder he doesn't dare show his face either eh? If he did, people would probably boo him, or tell him to keep his
And that made me think that Lawrence Martin must be right. When old, burned out, scandal ridden governments start to collapse, they don't just fade away. They crash and burn.
It’s a strange and scary trend, especially if you’re in government. Over the last half century, Canadian governments that have been in power for long periods have met with dismal reckonings. They don’t just lose, they collapse. They crash, they burn, they go down like the Hindenburg.
Because when I look at the state of the Con regime, the corruption, the scandals, the patronage appointments, the mishandling of the economy, the desperate leader obsessed with trying to screw Justin Trudeau.
It's pretty obvious it's going down too...
And even sooner, and more spectacularly than even I had hoped.
Jump !!! Jump !!! Oh wait DON'T !!!!
Which of course just about made my day.
Because it turns out the bee was right after all eh?
And so was the bear.
Our long winter of the soul is nearly over.
The Cons are going down like the Hindenburg.
Stephen Harper is crazy desperate.
And spring is finally here...
