Andrew Scheer looks pretty clueless today for calling for back to work legislation for CN.

notwithstanding, of course, it would require Parliament to actually be in session to enact said legislation! Meanwhile... the Teamsters union thanked PM Trudeau for respecting its members right to strike... and acknowledged the assistance of Transport Minister Garneau & Labour Minister Tassi in helping to reach an agreement with CN Rail.

how to make sense of the weak Andy move to name his Deputy Leader => Leona Alleslev ... other than "notoriety" gained in crossing the floor to join the CPC, Alleslev who?

so... just days in and Alleslev showcases a new CPC strategy toward the carbon tax: stating a carbon tax is job killing/doesn't reduce emissions... what, wait, that's the same failed strategy as before. And now in an interview with CBC Radio's 'The House': in trying to defend weak Andy's failure to appear in Pride Parades, Alleslev compares them to St. Patrick's Day Parades!

Quote
"I think that that's obviously his choice and we live in a country where that's his choice," Alleslev told host Chris Hall. "Have we asked anybody if they marched in a St. Patrick's Day parade?"

Et tu Toronto Sun???

When a Sun article criticizes Scheer over his anti-gayness, you know he's in trouble...

In announcing the 50 MPs in his shadow cabinet last week, Scheer had a perfect chance to somewhat mute the cries of the LGBTQ community for his negative personal views on same-sex marriage.

In his new caucus, Scheer has a young, bright, openly-gay MP named Eric Duncan, a rookie representing the eastern Ontario riding of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry.


The writer makes a good point...   why not appoint this guy to something to take some of the heat off?   

I've come to the conclusion that not only does Scheer have some socially conservative views that don't mesh with most Canadians, he is also a completely inept politician.
