2021 Federal Election Culture (Waldo free)
« on: August 18, 2021, 11:38:58 am »
This is a topic to actually discuss the federal election without Waldo’s incessant nonsense like bitching about O’Toole’s t-shirt.

Start with this:

O’Toole announced a GST holiday. No GST in December.

What an awful idea. Who comes up with this stuff for the CPC??

Who will buy a car in November???

An albatross around the neck of Conservatives.

The Cons just can’t help but get in their own way.

The reason this came to be is from OToole promising to protect the “conscience rights”of healthcare providers.

How would that work in small town Saskatchewan when the only doctor in town decides women shouldn’t  have access to contraception based on religious beliefs?

I'd like to talk about O'Toole's t-shirt.

He looks like the husband half of a swinger couple, cruising a bar in Oakville to find young commodities for their maternal bedroom.

Thank you squid for a thread free of party-funded propaganda.

Some of these parties are trying to fix the housing crisis by building affordable homes and now the NDP are going to give $5000k to subsidize rent for families.  These are bad solutions that are just band-aids that don't fix the core problems.

Regulate the real estate and banking sector, tax speculation and foreign investment, remove red tape for builders, and don't bring in more immigrants than cities can absorb, think about increasing the lending rates.

Observing this (casually) from several hundred miles away...who do you think is going to win? And will they win outright, or with a minority government?

The Libs will likely win.  Hopefully it’ll be a minority government again as this bunch cannot be trusted with the powe that a majority government brings.

Twitter adds label to MP Freeland’s Twitter posts calling it “manipulated media” for editing O’Toole responding to a question to make it seem he’s saying something he isn’t.

Most people call this lying.  Libs call it campaigning.

The party that called the election is the only major party that didn't have it's campaign platform ready to release. Does that seem right?

Maybe they'll release it before the debates. Maybe they won't. Really, they're just faking it at this point anyway, aren't they?

The transcript of the portion of the interview that was hacked up into Freeland's Tweet.  The highlighted portions are the bits that made it into the clip.  You can decide for yourself whether you feel the snippet in Freeland's video captures the spirit of what O'Toole is actually saying. I don't believe it does. I highly doubt that Freeland did the video editing herself for this; I assume it was conceived and executed up by the Liberal war room.  Still, she did put her name on it. I thought she was better than this.

I think you have to sell your soul at the door in order to become any kind of success in politics, it's the cost of admission.  When you see bad things happening you have to smile and look the other way and repeat the party line.  It's similar with being a cop.  There are no "good cops" because anyone who shuts up and goes along when bad things are being done isn't a "good cop".  Anyone with any moral conviction is quickly filtered out, because they're forced to quit since one person at the bottom can't change anything in such systems.  Show me a cabinet member in any of our governments who isn't a careerist sociopath.

Canada has some of the weakest whistleblower protections among similar democratic nations, its time we ask why, and who does it serve?

If they want to cost a platform i can see why it might take some time if your plan is to give everyone the world.

They might also just be saving announcements to be released sporadically before the election, don't want to reveal their hand all at once.  They assume Canadians are stupid enough not to care too much about releasing platforms and they're right.
