Singh’s right about calling an election.  And he’s trying to score political points with it.

Wow….  What a shocker.

for months NDP/Singh had repeatedly spoke of pulling support for the minority government - of course, ever afraid of actually bringing the government down, he always rushed forward to ensure confidence votes favoured the government. So, as you say, what a shocker that the government pulled the pin rather than having the Oppo force it! As for coincident pandemic timing, that's nonsense - if it's safe to have 5 provincial elections during the pandemic, if national/provincial Conservative governments have, for months, been clamouring for the removal of lockdowns, the elimination of restrictions, the opening of schools, etc.. ...  geezaz member squiggy, are you saying Elections Canada can't run an election that ensures the safety of citizens - particularly with such a high number of vaccinated? Is that what you're saying/implying? Explain yourself, hey!

That’s a great pic of O’Toole.  He’s looking buff!  Maybe Trudeau will offer to have a boxing match!  He’d kick Trudeau’s ass all over the ring!

ya, ya - quite the O'Foole makeover... there's a circulating pic of the guy actually wearing colourful patterned socks too! LOL!

I don't like JT but I can't fault him on how he's handled COVID.

I'll be interested to see what O'Toole has policy wise, however.

O’Toole is more buff than Trudeau and this makes Walduh MAD!

just out of the gate now:

=> it's been mentioned in past weeks but O'Foole just reinforced it minutes ago... that the CPC would stop/end all the early learning & child care agreements the Liberals have signed with provinces/territories in recent weeks - offering instead... tax credits! So, with a CPC government, parents will still need to come up with the, in some cases, thousands of dollars to meet their child care needs!

=> O'Foole has just now promised billions for pandemic relief... few details provided. This after the CPC/O'Foole have pilloried the Liberal government for providing pandemic benefits to companies, employees and individuals. Yeesh - can one say hypocrites!

=> under questioning today, O'Foole reinforces the CPC opposition to mandatory vaccination for federal public servants and travellers... of course, pandering to the CPC base!

no - it's a staged phony attempt to project O'Foole as someone he most assuredly is not! On par with this:

CPC policy not-so-wise cuts plan => cut $10/day childcare; cut assault weapon ban; cut COVID-19 business & income supports; cut climate action plan

PM Trudeau Liberal government: states that federal public servants will have to be vaccinated, along with those working for crown corporations and other federally regulated businesses.

answering a question about his position on mandatory vaccinations, CPC/O'Toole says:

Quote from: CPC leader Erin O'Toole
Conservatives support Canadians' right to determine their own health choices.

so CPC/O'Toole put the rights of the unvaccinated ahead of public safety; notwithstanding, many of those choosing to remain unvaccinated are driven by conspiracy theories and a lack of respect of... concern for... the welfare of others.

waldo friendly reminder: back in the height of April's lockdown period, Parliament exercised a confidence vote on the Liberal budget... a vote that had CPC/O'Toole (along with Greens & Bloc) voting against the budget. If not for the NDP supporting the government/budget, confidence in the Liberal government would have been lost by the House... forcing an election with provinces during lockdown! And now the hypocrite CPC/O'Toole is saying there's no need for this election!

Trudeau said the 2015 election would be the last under FPTP yet this is a guy who says he can't work with a minority. His phoney sincerity makes me want to retch.
