2021 Election Campaign
« on: July 13, 2021, 01:38:05 am »
in the lead-up, the CPC has been working feverishly to shape and control how its leader's body image is portrayed in the media. Some are suggesting, certainly not the waldo, that said CPC shaping has crossed into overt photoshopped image manipulation! Apparently, this image of PM Trudeau caused a meltdown within the CPC 'brain trust'; one that resulted in a plethora of O'Foole running snaps - only to have those upstaged with the CPC just releasing the official Calgary visit photo:

Walduh thinks being in great shape equates to actual competence in governing. 

Truduh has proved that notion certainly isnít true.

hey lil' buddy, you're the only one here equating, as you say, "great shape" to governing competence. Instead of your perpetual gutterSniping, think about why political parties invest so much time, energy and money into grooming... and projecting, the public image of a candidate, of a leader... to the electorate, hey!

oh my! More... yet more, Green Party turmoil: Green Party brass move to block funding for leader Annamie Paul's riding campaign

Quote
Green Party executives have moved to withhold funding from leader Annamie Paul's campaign to win a downtown Toronto seat in a likely election later this year.
.
The move to halt cash flow follows layoffs last week of about half of the Greens' employees amid party infighting and divides that bubbled into public view when New Brunswick MP Jenica Atwin defected to the Liberals last month.

to the haters, PM Trudeau is using a staged photo-op to campaign... led by prominent haters, the likes of Kinsella, Murphy, Toronto Sun, etc.. Apparently, furour rising over the use of a 'teddy-bear prop'. Both Sask Premier Moe and PM Trudeau, together, visited the unmarked graves at the site of the former Cowessess First Nation residential school. No concerns raised over Conservative Moe's like photo... or that of CPC leader O'Foole who brought and left a teddy-bear to, as he stated, "honour the 215 Indigenous children found in a grave in Kamloops." Go figure, hey!

the Green Party shyte-show percolated further to the point where the Green Party's governing body announced it was set to hold a confidence vote on Paul's leadership and to review her membership in the party... but after this past weekend, to now announce the confidence vote has been cancelled and the review of Paul's party membership abandoned.

Quote from: Green Party leader Annamie Paul
The reason that I haven't {resigned} is because it should not be this difficult. It should not be this difficult for people of good will, people with experience, to offer it in service to their country.

There are too many good people that have found it impossible and I simply didn't want to be one of them.

The Green leader is Jewish.  People on the left are typically critical of Israel and are pro-Palestian, including those in the Green Party.  Fighting ensued.

member Gorgeous is right in terms of the faction rift within the federal Green Party (it would be insightful for the DumbTagger to explain why he tagged the member Gorgeous post... as Dumb - what say you, hey member squiggy?)

in any case, notwithstanding what's been going on 'behind the scenes', the public events and timeline leading to the departure of Green MP Jenica Atwin are well understood and documented.

per CBC - Fallout from Greens' feud continues as party opts not to renew top adviser's contract:
Quote
Fresh fissures opened after Green MP Jenica Atwin directly challenged Paul's position on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Her tweet followed one a day earlier by Green MP Paul Manly, who said the planned removal of Palestinian families from the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah "is ethnic cleansing."

Noah Zatzman, senior adviser to party leader Annamie Paul, responded with a Facebook post stating that Greens "will work to defeat you and bring in progressive climate champions who are antifa and pro LGBT and pro indigenous sovereignty and Zionists!!!!!"

that faction rift within the Green Party appears entrenched and {somewhat relatively} longstanding. As published in 2014 in the 'Canadian Jewish News', Why Iím no longer president of the Green Party of Canada

Quote
My recent experience has elicited comments from many in the Jewish community who tell the same story. They too started out full of hope that they might be able to make a difference when it comes to protecting the environment and furthering human rights. And they too could only stomach so much abuse and unbalance regarding the prevalent approach to Israel for so long before finally leaving.

Despite this unfortunate episode, I still believe one can be concerned about the environment and human rights and at the same time support the State of Israel. In my mind, that hasnít changed. What has changed is I am now convinced one simply canít do so within the confines of the Green Party of Canada.

geezaz! Green party takes battle with leader Annamie Paul to court...  Green party feud with its leader reignites as executives seek to overturn arbitration in court - they claim an arbitrator exceeded his authority in requiring executives to cancel their non-confidence vote against Annamie Paul as well as a review of her party membership:

Quote
Paul asked an arbitrator to suspend the confidence vote and the membership review and he agreed to do so, ordering the party to hold off on the vote and post a notice online indicating that it had done so.

Yes, crush anyone that takes votes away from The Party.
