Pierre Poilievre and the Death of the Fake Scandal

I wasn't looking forward to watching Justin Trudeau appear before the Commons Justice Committee.

I knew that Pierre Poilievre and his ugly stooge Charlie Angus were out for blood, determined to make a fake scandal sound like a real one.

And after the way they had both teamed up to smear poor Margaret Trudeau the day before, I knew they were capable of anything.

But as it turns out, I shouldn't have worried.

The Monkey Court and the Day the NDP Died

I knew the Finance Committee hearing into the so-called WEgate scandal was going to be a kangaroo court, or something even worse.

For the very simple reason, there is no scandal.

WE Charity co-founders Marc and Craig Kielburger emerged from a four-hour grilling by opposition MPs tonight saying they did not stand to gain financially from agreeing to run the Liberal government's $900 million student grant program — and insisting they did not exploit their ties with the Trudeau family to secure the deal. 

Just two decent young Canadians trying to save their well loved children's charity, from dirty old men like these.

Old pols like Charlie Angus and  Pierre Poilievre, who would destroy a kid's charity just to get at Justin Trudeau.

Or worse go after poor old Margaret Trudeau for the same reason.

Which made me really angry...

No decent person can deny that Angus and Poilievre behaved like fascist pigs. They treated the Kielberger brothers like criminals.They berated and insulted them, they interrupted their answers again and again.

Even the Chair couldn't control them.    
And although I was happy to see that the brothers were able to handle themselves with class and dignity throughout their four hour ordeal.

What shocked me was how many Cons were cheering on the NDP, like they were now their farm team, or little orange brothers.

So much so that even the well known Con Stephen Taylor, once the master of the Blogging Tories, suggested that Charlie and Pierre should celebrate their appalling behaviour.

Or suggested that the boring Peter Julian is us ALL...

Instead of just another Con stooge who even after grilling the Kielburger brothers for more than four hours, declared that he STILL wasn't satisfied.

And yeah, that's it for me as far as the NDP is concerned. 

I used to vote for them back in the days when they were idealists, and could legitimately claim to be progressive. And I'm still proud that Jack Layton was my friend.

But then came angry Tom Mulcair who took the party so far to the right, I didn't recognize it...

And was singularly obsessed with destroying Justin Trudeau. Just like the old and bitter DipperCons are today.

So now I'm done forever, or at least until the NDP becomes a nobler and more decent party again. 

As for Justin Trudeau, tomorrow he will have to face the Angus-Poilievre committee, or the Canadian version of an ugly star chamber.

And like so many other Canadians I am hoping that Trudeau will prevail. For our country is in great danger.

The Cons and the NDP have sabotaged our ability to defeat the pandemic.

And as far as I can see only decency can save us now...

Has Justin Trudeau Lost The Wind In His Sails?

As a sailor, I know that you can have the fastest boat, and the best crew, but if the wind quits on you, you can still lose.

Which makes me wonder if that is what's happening to Justin Trudeau.

For as this latest poll suggests, the fake WE scandal has had an impact.

Andrew Scheer And My Wonderful Humiliation Party

In my last post I looked at how Andrew Scheer is cracking up with less than a month to go before he is given the bum's rush as Con leader.

And how desperate he is to try to force Justin Trudeau to resign before he does.

But if you thought that was just another sign that Scheer is losing his marbles, and that his party would be able to calm him down even if they had to use a tranquilizer dart, forget it.

For today the poor loser was back, sounding even crazier.

The Day Andrew Scheer Finally Lost His Marbles

I knew that Andrew Scheer was slowly but surely coming apart at the seams, and Iooking and acting weirder and weirder.

I knew it was just a matter of time before he totally lost it

He's now only a month away from being given the bum's rush as Con leader, and the thought that he hasn't been able to destroy Justin Trudeau must be absolutely KILLING him.

But who knew he would lose his marbles in such a spectacular manner?

Poll Wars: The Scheer Nightmare Is Almost Over

Golly, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday an Abacus poll made it look like Andrew Scheer and his Cons were heading for victory in the next election.

And I really had to wonder about the mental health of many some Canadians, who could stab a decent leader like Justin Trudeau in the back, after all he has done to save them from the horrors of a murderous pandemic.

For it wasn't a pretty sight.

Why the WEgate Fake Scandal Will Not Take Down Trudeau

I must admit I didn't think that the fake WE scandal would have any effect on the Liberal party standings, or on the popularity of Justin Trudeau.

It's so obviouly a manufactured scandal, and the only reason it lasted more than a day was because the Con media made it sound like the biggest story in the world.

I thought that Canadians would understand that, and also recognize the excellent work Trudeau has been doing to lead us through a deadly pandemic.

But sadly I was wrong.

Why The Con Media's Fake Scandal Is Going Nowhere

It's a pandemic nightmare right out of Kafka, where the roar of a media mob turns reality on its head.

And a decent prime minister who has worked tirelessly for months to defeat a murderous pandemic, and get the country back on its feet, is suddenly called a "criminal."

For the "crime" of failing to recuse himself from a cabinet meeting in his rush to get help to more than 35,000 young Canadians.

It's so petty, I didn't think Justin Trudeau should even have bothered to apologize.

But decent will do what decent does.

Why The Fake WE Scandal Is Going To Hurt The Cons More Than The Liberals

Trust me, the last thing I wanted to do today is write about the absurd WE fake scandal.

I had a hammock, a good book, and a big bowl of juicy Washington State cherries ready to go, and I was looking forward to a really lazy Saturday. 

But then I saw a strangely orange Andrew Scheer in his home studio, calling on the police to investigate Justin Trudeau. 

So I thought I'd better explain why the Cons and their NDP and Bloc buddies are going to be the big losers of this fake scandal.

Covid 19:You Can Run But You Can't Hide

I took some time off to soak up some of the finest summer days I can remember, and get back on the water.

As well as celebrate these hard fought victories.

As the number of COVID-19 cases in Ontario declines, some hospitals in Toronto are now reaching new milestones — zero coronavirus patients in their intensive care units.

But unfortunately I can run, but I can't hide.

Because even as I dream of final victory, my worst nightmare is back.

The Violent Cons Who Want To Kill Justin Trudeau

It's a lovely photo. Justin Trudeau and his family spending part of their Canada day helping to harvest vegetables for an Ottawa food bank.

It's another reason I admire our prime minister, another reason I love this peaceful country so much.

But unfortunately because Trudeau is so decent, and so Canadian, a lot of Cons and other haters want to kill him.
