more on the earlier phoney theme that drew the waldo in to reinforce the reality of the phoney O'Toole: in the past the CPC/O'Toole continually spoke of O'Toole's supposed 12-year military career... but now, based on early day mentions, it looks to become a 2021 election campaign emphasis.

of course we've had a go-around on this in prior threads, shining light on the reality of his 5... and only 5 years of actual service. Again, the claimed 12 years was actually:
=> 4 years at RMC Kingston to land an... arts degree; and,
=> as a reservist, 3 years at Dalhousie in Halifax to obtain a law degree; and,
=> 5 actual years of military service to the country. More pointedly, its quite telling that "staunch" militaryMan O'Toole opted not to leverage the law career that was waiting for him within the military... choosing instead the corporate law path - cause he'd quite clearly had enough of the Canadian military after serving just those 5 years!

of course it's well understood that O'Toole wanted to become a fighter-pilot; however, he didn't have the 'Right Stuff' and had to settle as a helicopter navigator. But that didn't stop the CPC/O'Toole leadership campaign that actually played up that fighter-pilot angle with numerous Top Gun related mentions/memes - one of the actual campaign images appearing below! The other image is a more recent one of O'Toole wearing a flight-jacket (something he often appears in) even though the RCAF symbol on it only came into existence 8 years after O'Toole had already left the military! Talk about a phoney O'Toole, hey!

LOL! As scrutineers look closer at the CPC election platform, additional detail has surfaced... talk about niche gimmicky type 'boutique' vote-buying gems... that really amount to nothingness:

=> the already mentioned month-long GST holiday
=> a “Dine and Discover” program to offer 50% off dine-in food and non alcoholic beverages Mon-Wed for a month
=> a 15% tax credit for vacation expenses up to $1000 within Canada.

policy smolicy says the CPC/O'Toole!

I feel confused by O'Toole's policies.

'Boutique' is a good way to describe it. 

A GST-free month ?  That's stupid.

Who comes up with these things ?

We are in need of economic and electoral reform and he's coming up with new paint schemes for the deck chairs of the Titanic.

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???

LOL - typically how many cars are purchased in any month? Member squiggy... you need to supply more info for your gem reply!

wait now, the Retail Council of Canada states this failed vote-buy won't increase purchases; rather, it says it will only delay intended purchases from the prior month - nice try member squiggy, nice try!

=> PM Trudeau Liberal government issues a policy statement advising that federal public servants will have to be vaccinated, along with those working for crown corporations and other federally regulated businesses.

=> Ontario announces mandatory vaccine plans for health, education workers

=> just announced earlier this morning: the Biden administration will direct all nursing homes to require their staff be vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to continue receiving Medicare and Medicaid funding


meanwhile, CPC/O'Toole answering a question about his position on mandatory vaccinations 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.

The Anti-Vax sympathy will sink O'Toole.

Tough spot to be in.

a whole lotta CPC supporters chest-thumping & high-fivin' over yesterday's election outcome in Nova Scotia!

waldo, are there actually any Progressive Conservatives left in the reformatory CPC party... c'mon waldo, can you name just one? Look what happened to Peter MacKay! Anyway, CPC supporters are not taking kindly to having it pointed out that, per TorStar's Steve McKinley - Halifax Bureau:

Quote
New Nova Scotia premier-designate Tim Houston in fact made a point during his campaign of distancing himself from his federal cousins — and of labelling himself a “red Tory.” Houston took great pains through the campaign to paint himself as a red Tory, and to distance himself from the federal Conservatives and their leader, repeatedly emphasizing the “progressive” in Progressive Conservative.

Quote from: Newly Designated Nova Scotia Premier - leader of the Progressive Conservative Party - Tim Houston
My focus is Nova Scotians, and I’ve always been focused on Nova Scotia. And so I’m not beholden to any federal leader.

We’re the Nova Scotia Progressive Conservative party. The federal party is called the Conservative Party of Canada. It’s not just different words, they’re different parties. I, personally, am not a member of the federal party.

the waldo doesn't get it! Most polls/surveys show a majority of Canadians are in favour of both mandatory vaccinations... and vaccine passports. Just how much of its base does the CPC/O'Toole think they might lose over this issue to... to... Bernier's PPC party? Or what?

zinger line from PM Trudeau this morning: "Erin O'Toole thinks pro-choice is a doctor's choice, rather than a woman's choice!" For example, to the waldo it appears there is purposeful CPC interpretations to protect the so-called gate-keeping role of physicians to deny providing access referrals... or more pointedly, per the CPC election platform, expressed CPC intentions to roll-back some of the Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID) legislation passed by the government/House this past March.

Why is Trevor Tombe the only economist to seemingly exist among Liberal supporters?

a typical 'add nothing' comment from the pissant whiner you are! You've also whined before about the waldo referencing Economist Kevin Milligan. Thing is you never even attempt to discuss their content or the waldo's related comments... you just troll and whine away! Another economist the waldo has referenced: Dr. Lindsay Tedds.

c'mon Gorgeous, get in the game, hey!

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/erin-otoole-pro-choice-conscience-rights-1.6146200

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.

you're late to the game squiggy - the waldo already mentioned it! In actuality it's referenced within the CPC election platform... somehow the CPC doesn't include the reference within the platform section titled, 'A Detailed Plan to Secure Healthcare'; rather, and the waldo shytes you not, it appears in a section titled, 'A Detailed Plan for a Freer Canada'! ... saying that, "if elected we will protect the conscience rights of healthcare professionals.” Typical Conservative "Freedumb" bullshyte!
