The Appalling Hypocrisy of the Con Queen Rona Ambrose
As you may know Rona Ambrose has always been a ghastly hypocrite.
Who would go after child care for the Trudeau children, while claiming to be a feminist.
Or even worse, pretend to be a doctor.
While sentencing thousands of heroin addicts to death by making it almost impossible to set up needle sharing clinics.
Even though the Supreme Court all but called her a murderous IDIOT.
Even though the so-called nannygate affair is a feminist issue.
The nanny scandal is not really about subsidizing an “elite” lifestyle of the Prime Minister. We have always done that. Nor is it about a conflict between a Prime Minister’s policies and the taxpayer support he receives while in office. It is, at the end of the day, about what we think about childcare – that it is a private not collective responsibility, and that it is women not their husbands, who should be bearing the burden.
And even though her claim that Trudeau is wasting the taxpayer's money is just cheap politics.
This is why people hate politicians. No, not Trudeau. The Conservatives using this nannygate non-scandal against him as a cheap political ploy to puncture his post-election popularity. The accusation of hypocrisy over government-paid nannies to help with the prime minister's three young children feels petty and penny-ante. But as a parent, it's also incredibly insulting because of what it reveals about the lack of value and importance that these people put in child care.
When in fact governments should be investing more in Canadian children.
And would have been doing more, and given more parents a break, if she hadn't helped kill a national daycare program.
That's where the Conservative's true colours come out. They don't really think the government should be in the business of childcare at all, or else there would have been a national strategy to address this crisis during their decade in power.
Just to please her depraved misogynistic leader who believes that a woman's place is in the home, and that daddy knows best...
And as for wasting the taxpayer's money, once again Ambrose couldn't be more hypocritical.
Drivers hired to shuttle federal cabinet ministers around Ottawa charged taxpayers more than $600,000 in overtime above their annual salaries last year, a CTV News investigation has found.
The analysis reveals that the drivers who serve the Public Works and Government Services Minister Rona Ambrose accumulated the most overtime: more than 1,000 hours costing taxpayers $40,074.
Because for her it seems limos are more important than child care...
And so much for her new/nouveau Cons.
Still the same old Harper party.
Still as evil and as hypocritical as ever.
And like their Great Leader still heading for oblivion...
