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.
Which was caught by the Quebec media, and under the heading "the scuffle you didn't see," was all over the province this morning.
Along with more evidence Mulcair started the whole thing. As this new video clearly shows ...
Which shows how Mulcair shuffles sideways, leftwards for once, and physically blocks the Con Whip from returning to his seat.
Before feigning indignation, while Ruth Ellen Brosseau, who also helped block the Con Whip, carried on like she had been shot.
And even worse, Nikki Ashton making wild remarks about how Trudeau had made every woman on Parliament Hill feel unsafe. Or how that errant elbow was a case of gendered violence.
Which as this writer points out diminishes the real fight against misogynistic violence, and it's real victims.
To manipulate the cause of violence against women for partisan purposes is the antithesis of NDP values of equality.
To compare this incident to violence against women is a slap in the face to any woman who has actually been assaulted. To label this as violence against women is just plain cruel: Any woman who has suffered real violence certainly knows an accidental elbow is not akin to violence.
This comparison – and all statements likening this incident to gendered violence – diminish the cause of those who fight violence against women. It diminishes the pain of the very real trauma experienced by women who have suffered abuse at the hands of men.
Which is appalling, and in my opinion at least, simply unforgivable.
So here's my question: If Justin Trudeau had the decency to apologize not once but THREE times.
The House resumed Thursday with two apologies from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over his behaviour in the House the night before, when he physically grabbed an MP and knocked another back into a desk.
Why hasn't Mulcair had the decency to apologize for HIS disgraceful behaviour?
And sadly the answer is because he has no decency, and hates Justin Trudeau with a passion that borders on insanity...
Like so many other disgusting Trudeau haters in this country.
For making him look a tired old hack, humiliating him in the last election, and above all devouring his party.
A random sampling of 1,517 Canadians over the age 18 by Forum Research found that 52 per cent would vote Liberal if an election were held today, enough to create a Liberal “supermajority” in the House of Commons, stealing almost all of the NDP seats and a few from the Tories.
If the poll results were projected to the House of Commons, the Liberals would take three-quarters of the seats — 261, compared to the 184 they won in the federal election last October — while the Conservatives would have 69 seats compared to the 98 they currently hold. The NDP would hold just seven seats, according to the survey. They won 44 last fall.
For if the NDP keeps shrinking the
But then who should be surprised?
When speaking of sheep, I predicted what would happen when Mulcair humiliated the party's youth wing...
And sure enough every single young NDP supporter I know, now supports Justin Trudeau. With the last two giving up in disgust yesterday.
And although I voted for the NDP in the last election, I won't make that mistake again. Not until Mulcair is replaced with a new and better leader.
One who takes the party to the left not the right...
And doesn't sound more like a Con with every day that passes.
Or a member of the Loser Party.
Yup. If Mulcair has any decency, which I doubt, he should apologize for his disgraceful behaviour.
And of course walk the plank as soon as is humanly possible...
