I've been away, but it seemed to me like only yesterday that Pierre Poilievre shocked a lot of Canadians, by solemnly declaring that he was really a nice guy.
He claimed that he didn't like all those F**K Trudeau flags, had no time for "rage," and seemed to suggest he might actually stop demonizing the Prime Minister as he has on a daily basis, for what seems like forever.
So I must admit that at first I was stunned. Could the grubby far-right rage farmer really be trying to turn over a new leaf? It seemed too good to be true.
And sadly it was.
For in just a few days his tinny halo fell off, and he was back in the company of racists.
Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre faced criticism from his political opponents Friday for delivering a speech to the Frontier Centre for Public Policy (FCPP), a controversial Winnipeg-based group that has been associated with efforts to downplay the effects of residential schools on Indigenous children and oppose vaccine mandates.
Blasting a record number of ugly messages out of his YouTube hate machine.
Speaking out in support of the grotesque misogynist and kooky clown Jordan Peterson.
Attacking the World Economic Forum, the source of so many crazed conspiracy theories, just to show the convoy gang that he is still one of them.
Retweeting this tweet from the Con loser Roman Baber to show his contempt for science and the battle against climate change.
And of course, blaming Justin Trudeau for EVERYTHING...
It was quite a transition, from Mr Ugly Con to Mr Nice Guy and back again.
But then he visited Quebec, and posed as a moderate again.
And while most Quebecers still gave him the cold shoulder, it did prompt the Globe's Konrad Yakabuski to wonder who is the real Pierre Poilievre?
As a public service, we are ceding this space to an urgent request from the Quebec provincial police for help in identifying a person calling himself Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre, who visited the province in recent days.
The SQ has reason to believe that the person in question may have usurped the identity of the federal Conservative Leader in order to persuade Quebeckers that the real Mr. Poilievre is nothing like the angry cartoon character who won his party’s 2022 leadership contest by promising to blow up Canada as we know it.
Yakabuski plays the story as a big joke, and it is. But at time when far-right extremists are a growing threat, the question he asks is a serious one:
Who is the real Poilievre?
And the answer is he is the same kooky Con he always has been, who set out long ago to destroy this country and its values...
The Harper stooge, the racist, the bully, the ugly misogynist, the serial liar, the bitcoin bitch.
The ghastly Con who encouraged his supporters not to get vaccinated, and by spreading disinformation made the Covid tragedy even worse.
A new report says misinformation about COVID-19 contributed to more than 2,800 Canadian deaths and at least $300 million in hospital and ICU visits.
The domestic terrorist supporter, who has used hate to debase our once peaceful country beyond recognition.
For believe it or not this is Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA...

I have no idea how that mob of Con vaxoids was allowed to get so close to our Prime Minister, but we all know how hard Poilievre has worked to inflame their murderous rage.
For this is the real Poilievre, the kinky cult leader who claims that our country is broken, but is in fact broken himself...
One final thought... I watched Poilievre address his Con Caucus this morning and it was a truly frightening and fascist spectacle.
He went after Justin Trudeau like a rabid hyena, he lied over and over again, and nobody in our hapless media bothered to denounce those lies, or even question his bizarre behaviour.
So all I can say is this:
We are at a critical time in Canadian history.
So if this cold, cruel psycho ever becomes Prime Minister, our beautiful country won't stand a chance...
