So you’re claiming that a bill can’t be passed in parliament without CPC support?  LOL

Sure, they delayed passage of the bill….   And then it was killed by Trudeau calling an election!  LOL
Trudeau did what the CPC couldn’t do….  He killed the conversion therapy bill.

So….    How’d that go for Trudeau….?  Did he eliminate any chance of a CPC filibuster in the future?

What’s the issue with the shower tiktok?  He’s not “prime ministerial looking”?

Please, let’s not have a picture contest of who looks less “prime ministerial”….   Trudeau will lose.  LOL

wait now squiggy, are you so naive and sheltered as to not have recognized the purposeful lead-up 5 months before the election call where the CPC purposely filibustered/blocked most anything from happening... is that your kind of preferred government, hey!


And how does yesterday's result change that?

This can't be emphasized enough.  Bill C-6 passed the House without incident. It was in "the chamber of sober second thought" for much-needed consideration (for things like ensuring that sincerely-intentioned doctors and therapists and counselors wouldn't be prosecuted for doing their jobs properly) when Trudeau called the election.

When Liberal cheerleaders say Trudeau had to call an election due to opposition obstruction, what they mean is that Dear Leader didn't like having to explain himself to oversight committees.

Whaaa??? That's all team Trudeau has been repeating ad naseaum.  If you want more, don't hesitate to ask.

"team Trudeau"??? LOL! I certainly don't recall any Liberal MPs, cabinet ministers or PM Trudeau mentioning non-confidence votes as a driver behind the election call... notwithstanding that 20 number seems a tad high in relation to the requirement that only 'money bills' carry the potential for non-confidence. But really, c'mon, no matter how many there actually were, none reached an actual non-confidence status to bring the government down as either the NDP or BQ (or both) had been repeatedly propping up the government to actually avoid non-confidence. And other than a roll-call vote what "bother" is a non-confidence vote... so why even mention it? Your "team Trudeau" tag to those twitter links is hilarious! But good on ya for trotting them out - apparently you thought you found a real gem! LOL!

but thanks for highlighting this again - I've mentioned it a few times in the past: the CPC/O'Toole were not hesitant in voting non-confidence... the most recent profiled instance, as I recall, was the April budget. You know, where O'Toole was quite ready to, once again, try to bring the government down and force a, wait for it... wait for it... a $600 million dollar pandemic election! The number of times O'Toole nattered on about, "$600 million dollars in a pandemic election" was nauseating - he was like a freakin' squawking parrot, over & over & over again.

no dumbazz - it's highlighting his 42-year old TikTok self trying to be "one of the kids"! It's quite funny to see he wasn't able to turn all those juvenile video views into actual votes... cause, apparently, the yutes don't vote! Who knew Jag, who knew!

wait now... you're not aware that the initial play was to attempt to secure a majority, right? Something that was actually a legitimate projection until, among other things, that Conservative biased Angus Reid debate moderator put her thumbs on the scale to mess with the Quebec seat tally. But ya, as for the actual result, of course the likes of pigeonPierre, BuffaloGal and CharlieLingus will surely do their best worst to once again bring a toxic, dysfunctional Parliament forward!

"without incident"! Please! You haven't a clue - you, once again, don't know what you're talking about.

It was in "the chamber of sober second thought" for much-needed consideration (for things like ensuring that sincerely-intentioned doctors and therapists and counselors wouldn't be prosecuted for doing their jobs properly) when Trudeau called the election.

no - I'm shocked you also have this wrong - shocked I tells ya! In actuality, the Senate recessed for its 'summer break' leaving the conversion therapy bill hanging... there was talk of a select committee coming back just to ensure bill C-6 passed through the Senate, but apparently, the Conservative Senators were keen to get to their cottages!

You mean twitterverse was busy spreading misinformation about why Trudeau called an election?  Say it isn't so!

Singh wasn't my first, second, or even current choice for NDP leader but this is a ridiculous argument against him.  Jack Layton's victory was an anomaly for the NDP.  Mulcair carried it because the Liberals had imploded.

As much as his detractors hate him, Trudeau's base loves him (you should know better than anyone).  Singh's performance in the last couple of elections is in line with NDP's history of when the Liberal party is not in complete meltdown.

All the people criticizing him for his antics are people that have never voted NDP anyway and likely never would.
