A few days ago I wrote a post about Stephen Harper's appearance on an American right-wing talk show.
Where he claimed that the only reason he lost the 2015 election was because the media was united against him.
And like others I wondered whether he had returned to replace the hapless Andrew Scheer as interim leader.
But now I believe that we can all relax, because it doesn't look like Harper will be going anywhere...

When I first saw Canadian soldiers arriving at long term care homes in Ontario and Quebec I must admit I was shocked.
I didn't think they had the training or the equipment to be able to do much good.
But boy was I wrong.
It seems like only yesterday that Peter MacKay was claiming that Canadians had lost faith in the Trudeau government, and was demanding an October election.
But he's not doing that any longer.
Peter MacKay, one of four candidates left fighting to be the next leader of the Conservative Party, says he doesn’t believe that Canadians want a federal election this fall as the country continues to grapple with the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
MacKay is blaming Covid-19 for his change of heart, but I'm sure these latest poll numbers also helped cool his jets.

In my last post I looked at how Stephen Harper is now blaming the Con media for his humiliating loss to Justin Trudeau.
And I had a good laugh, for it sounded so ridiculous.
But I'm not laughing anymore.
Because now a Con in Quebec is comparing Harper to Churchill...
In October it will be five years since a pale, shell shocked Stephen Harper stumbled out into the night after being humiliated by Justin Trudeau, the leader he claimed wasn't ready.
Since that fateful night Harper hasn't had anything to say about why he lost the election.
But now in an interview with the right-wing talk show host Dennis Prager, Great Failed Leader is finally pointing the shaky finger of blame.
And believe it or not, he's blaming the Con media!!!

It was Andrew Scheer's birthday the other day, but as you can imagine the celebrations were somewhat muted.
None of his Cons felt much like celebrating, not when so many of his Cons are afraid that thanks to Scheer they are going to lose their seats in the next election.
And of course, this was a lousy birthday present.

Justin Trudeau was looking very spiffy at his regular briefing this morning.
Maybe it was just the sunny Spring day, or his new jacket.
Or maybe it was this shiny new poll.

As we all know the depraved Donald Trump has been posing as a U.S. President for what seems forever, and failing miserably. Over and over again.
But the raging pandemic, and those 90,000 dead Americans, have spooked him almost as much as Joe Biden's rising polls.
And now he's playing doctor, and claiming he's taking the dangerous anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine...

He tried to hide it for many years. He didn't want anyone to know that he was also an American citizen.
Especially since he had gone after Former Gov. General Michaëlle Jean for holding a French citizenship.
And when he was finally exposed, he promised to renounce his American citizenship as soon as possible.
But sadly the Ugly American was lying. Again.

As I'm sure you know, I believe that Andrew Scheer is the most morally depraved leader in modern Canadian history. He was already known to be a serial liar, a racist, a misogynist, a vile homophobe, and a climate change denier.
But the pandemic has dragged him into the foul depths where only the cruelest and most dirty beasts roam.
For first he accused the CERB program of encouraging suffering Canadians to be lazy.
Now he's accusing Justin Trudeau of turning a blind eye to fraud.

A recent poll suggested that half of all Canadians are experiencing some form of depression, and half are saying they’re feeling hopeless.
So it's not hard to imagine how many Canadian children are feeling. Caught up in a crisis they don't really understand, as well as missing their friends.
So the other day Justin Trudeau decided to reach out to them and their parents.
I must admit that as the days warm up, I'm finding it harder and harder to spend my spare time locked up in my self imposed prison cell.
And the sight of a guy portaging a canoe down the street is enough to drive me wild.
But as much as I long to be free, or understand why so many are desperate to end the lockdown,
I fear that ending it too quickly could lead to disaster.

Last Sunday night Donald Trump shocked most decent Americans taking part in a Fox News town hall at the Lincoln Memorial.
And making an absolute fool of himself over and over again.
"They always said Lincoln -- nobody got treated worse than Lincoln. I believe I am treated worse."
But now it seems that the outraged spirit of Lincoln may have seized its revenge.
For a group of disaffected Republicans who call themselves The Lincoln Project have just released a video that is driving Trump crazy, or crazier...

I'm sure for a lot of Canadians it was a recurring nightmare. A question that kept them up at night.
What would have happened if the Cons had won the election and Andrew Scheer not Justin Trudeau was in charge of the war against COVID-19?
Well now they know, and sure enough, it couldn't be more horrifying.

About three weeks ago I wrote a post looking at those who were still refusing to accept the deadly nature of Covid-19.
I warned that kind of ignorance could kill us.
And I wondered why a Coronavirus denier was blogging at Progressive Bloggers.

Growing up in Montreal I was haunted by the picture of these murdered women.
Murdered at the École Polytechnique more than 30-years-ago.
Savagely slaughtered just for being women, by a man who hated feminists.
