Justin Trudeau and the Last Days of the Mad King Harper
Well he took his time, and I must admit the suspense was killing me.
But Justin Trudeau has finally done the right thing.
And announced that he will not support a Stephen Harper minority government.
Though he has “every bit of confidence” the Liberals will win on Oct. 19, Justin Trudeau says there is absolutely no way, no how, his party would support a Stephen Harper-led Conservative minority government.
“I have spent my entire political career fighting against Mr. Harper’s narrow and meaner vision of what Canada can be and what the government should do,” he said after an arts-and-culture announcement in Montreal.
And to make it even better, despite his vow never to form a coalition with the NDP, he now seems to be leaving the door open to supporting an NDP minority government.
On Tuesday, he sidestepped the question of whether he would support a NDP minority. “Canada has had minority governments before,” he said. “And parliamentarians elected by Canadians have always been able to ensure that Parliament functions.”
Which means that even if Stephen Harper does manage to squeak out a minority his days in power will be numbered...
Which is very important, because the longer Harper is allowed to keep governing the harder it will be to evict him.
And the easier it will be for him to go to the Governor General and ask for another election.
Which I'm sure you'll all agree we need like a hole in the head. This one has been stressful enough.
Just ask poor old Gerald Caplan.
Politics: It really can drive you around the bend. I’m seriously considering hiding away from all further election news. I don’t think I can stand it a minute longer. Not only is there so much to fear.
There’s also so much to flummox us, too, like trying to figure out when the NDP and Liberals have exchanged programs. And maybe most unbearably, it’s unhinging trying to guess the final outcome. Yet this is the most important election of our lifetime.
Because I'm sure we all know how he feels eh?
Although what makes it easier for me is that unlike Gerry I'm not partisan. I just want someone, ANYONE, to bring down the Con regime.
Preferably like the Hindenburg...
And whatever differences I might have with the Liberals or the NDP, I know that I can trust both Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair, to end this Harperite nightmare and restore our Canadian values. And for me that's all that counts.
And what makes me positively cheery is that I know that Justin didn't have much choice but to say what he said today.
Because like Tom he knows that if Stephen Harper does manage to snatch a minority, there would be millions of Canadians in the streets the next day demanding that the tyrant be toppled. the DAY after he is sworn in.
And that whether Mulcair or Trudeau ends up as prime minister, each one will have to support the other, whether they like it or not.
So while this would be my preferred option. Making Stephen Harper keep this promise.
If the NDP and the Liberals have to work together to bring down the mad king all the better.
Because I've always wanted them to work together, and hopefully one day unite.
And as I've said before, for me this would be the perfect ending to this nightmare...
That monstrous bully thug being carried away on a stretcher, or in handcuffs, cursing EVERYBODY.
And blaming everybody but HIMSELF...
While all the happy progressives laugh and dance and party TOGETHER.
Before rolling up their sleeves and getting down to work fixing our poor broken Canada.
You know, it isn't easy trying to get the NDP and the Liberals to work together. It's like herding cats.... or cougars.
Or trying to get to the Magic Island, on a windy day, on a boat like this one...
But it seems that now they are going to have no choice.
And I couldn't be happier.
Gerry, Gerry, hang on, don't JUMP !!!!!
I think we're going to make it....
