CPC/O'Toole is steadfast in his refusal to agree with mandatory vaccinations; continually reaching for the, "it's a personal decision", fall-back line while, as some form of panacea, emphasizing that he has been vaccinated himself. In recent weeks, larger and more professionally organized anti-vaxxer protests have been targeting PM Trudeau public appearances... while CPC/O'Toole appears afraid to meet the public as he tucks away in his virtual studio.

anti-vaxx protests reached a new level at last night's intended PM Trudeau campaign rally event in Bolton Ontario... causing the event to be cancelled due to security concerns. As it turns out, at least 4 of the protesters were a part of CPC candidate Kyle Seeback's campaign (currently running as the incumbent in Dufferin-Caledon).

CPC/O'Toole was pointedly asked if he thought his personal position on vaccines was helping to fuel the antivaxx protests:

CPC/O'Toole said Friday that a CPC government would rollback the federal government's more aggressive emissions reduction target, committing instead to the lower target set by former CPC Prime Minister Harper.

Quote from: CPC leader O'Toole
Canada needs a climate target it can hit without crippling the economy

the current federal government emissions target has been registered with the United Nations in June - the new target was enshrined in law under the recently passed Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act.

the decades long climate change denying statements/claims of wingnut CPC MP/candidate Cheryl Gallant are well documented. And now thanks to recent days scrutiny on her most brazen personal attacks against PM Trudeau (the hanging PM image being her most recent), it's come to light that she's also been fronting a conspiracy theory video where she claims PM Trudeau/Liberals are... "planning a climate lockdown"... referring to the federal government implementing personal and corporate restrictions in order to curb the long-term effects of climate change.

at separate media Q/A's, CPC/O'Toole was repeatedly asked if he found Gallant's statements and claims acceptable - per his norm, O'Toole refused to answer the questions directly. Eventually Gallant's Youtube channel videos were scrubbed and O'Toole, without mentioning Gallant by name, issued a statement: "Any candidates who donít support my plan on climate change, or any other part of my platform, will not be part of a future Conservative caucus." Wow, so... hard hitting!

waldo reminder: at the March CPC policy convention, Conservative delegates voted to reject adding green-referenced statements to the policy book ó including a line that would have stated the party believes "climate change is real" and is "willing to act."

also in those rejected statements was:
=> the need to recognize that "Canadian businesses classified as highly polluting need to take more responsibility" and "reduce their GHG emissions."
=> a call to support "innovation in green technologies" so that Canada can become "a world-class leader" in an emerging industry.

a 15 tweet threadreader unroll of examples of climate change denial in the CPC caucus - yes, dinosaurs is an appropriate description!

I've very surprised how Prime Ministerial O'Toole looks so far.

you mean where the CPC 'brain trust' keeps O'Toole isolated in that "virtual hideyhole"... where O'Toole doesn't go out into crowds... where O'Toole repeatedly refuses to answer questions asked of him by media? Is that your looking Prime Ministerial?

hey Boges - more of that looking... Prime Ministerial? Here's CPC/O'Toole out in a crowd throng... in an empty bowling alley! So many protestors! LOL!

and more of the same continued refusal in answering pointed questions from the media!

The right can't ignore the matter of increasing wealth disparity... and there are ways to share wealth without raising taxes too: reduce public subsidies for profitable endeavours, mandate wage increases or strengthen unions as Comrade O'Toole is doing now.

JT's boy Nano is ringing the Alarm.

With just three weeks to go until the Sept. 20 vote, tracking data ending Sunday and released Monday morning shows the Liberals projected to win 111 seats versus 107 for the Conservatives, a sharp change from an Aug. 22 projection that had the Liberals ahead of the Conservatives 128 to 94. A projection from June had the Liberals at 171 seats versus 59 for the Conservatives.

CPC/O'Toole has been hermetically sealed in a bubble to ensure he doesn't have to interact with Canadians - so "Prime Ministerial", hey member Boges? And today more of that refusing to answer media questions - so... "Prime Ministerial"!


that last question referenced on free votes will have CPC/O'Toole attempting to 'square the circle'... given his stance on allowing CPC MPs to vote freely - to vote their conscience, how does O'Toole square that with his recent days statement that all candidates must/will agree with his policy platform... or they won't be a part of the CPC caucus! Oh my waldo, that doesn't sound like 'free to vote'!

so CPC/O'Toole has pledged to take Canada's emission targets back to the Harper days... and consequently the Harper days of climate change inaction! Meanwhile a reelected Liberal government has a climate plan, an ambitious plan to accelerate climate action for more jobs, cleaner communities, and less pollution.

The Libs are playing from the same Hidden Agenda playbook you always have.

He can look to his friend DoFo who recently turfed an MPP for refusing to be vaccinated.

when you speak of playing from the same playbook... you mean that same CPC playbook that, once again, has DOFO hidden away during yet another federal election campaign? Like that? Why so?

oh snap! Wait now, is that why the long anticipated... long delayed... Ontario government action on a vaccine passport... er... vaccine certificate... er... vaccine sticker with shyte adhesive is said to finally be announced "in the next days". If the passport, certificate or whatever actually comes forward is legit, how will CPC/O'Toole square that with his "respecting people's personal choices". Surely with the scrutiny and public calls on this, surely DOFO can't delay this till after the election - surely not! Right Boges - amirite?

member Boges, the AR-15 - the preferred weapon for, uhhh... hunters... ya, hunters! LOL!

it's not, as you say, 'hidden agenda' when CPC/O'Toole has it prominently a part of his own policy platform and reclassification scheme to make it legal again in Canada! Freedom for hunters!!!

Long delayed? Is that the rhetoric you're going with?

Were these weapons also not heavily regulated? It's not like it's legal to carry them in public, like in portions of the US.
