Poilievre revisionism extraordinaire!



if only PM Trudeau had "listened to the people" says skippy! As in listen to their MOU demands to overturn the 2021 election results in favour of a ruling "committee" of far-right extremists, the Senate and the Governor General... which eventually shifted into a proposal where a core group of "Freedumb Convoy" organizers and their supporters would govern, “with the Conservatives, and the NDP, and the Bloc as a coalition.” This... this is the rabble, the nonsense that the CPC/Poilievre supported. Imagine PM Trudeau ignoring them in favour of invoking the Emergencies Act - imagine!

wait waldo, there's more: Freedom Convoy protesters set to return to Ottawa for Canada Day, stay through summer

freeeeeeeeeeeedom!

such unadulterated bullshyte from Poilievre!... apparently, Canada's nationality is freedom - who knew, who knew!

this grifter says,
Quote
So many of our freedoms are under attack as big bossy government takes your money and tells you what to do... imposing vaccine mandates and attacking your dollar value. You no longer have the freedom to spend your wages because it is being inflated away by a deliberate inflationist policy imposed by the federal government and executed by an incompetent central bank. All of these attacks on our freedom have taken away from the great heritage that Laurier advanced when he was Prime Minister, at a time when he advanced freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise, freedom of trade.
.
I'm running for Prime Minister to put you back in control of your life by making Canada the freest nation on earth.

of course all those organizations that follow/review/rank the freedom of global nations consistently rank Canada's freedom comparatively high... geezaz skippy, even the Fraser Institute stink tank ranks Canada 6 out of 152 countries!

wound licking appears over as O'Toole finally resurfaces!

=> Erin O'Toole wants his party to find a 'balance' between conservatism and populism. --- Former leader says Conservatives need to 'come up with positive change, not add to the anger'
Quote
Whoever the next leader is … they will have to get the balance right between conservative, traditional policies and populism.

And I believe as leaders we have to channel people's frustrations into positive change, not add fuel to the fire.

Citing the influence of American culture and the effects of Western alienation, rural issues and pandemic fatigue, O'Toole said Conservatives need to "come up with positive change, not add to the anger."

Anyone that wins will have to strike that right balance for the well-being of the country. That's what I was always trying to say to my caucus.

He said he hopes the next Conservative leader will "realize that the country is in a fractious state but provide a plan to heal those divisions."

by the by, of course in Canada... it's 'freedom of expression', not 'freedom of speech'

PM Trudeau & NDP leader Singh have both offered comment on the U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down 'Roe vs. Wade'... so have CPC leadership candidates Charest, Brown and Lewis. Surprisingly freedomMan Poilievre has nothing to say! Who says skippy revels in ambiguity... in inexactness!

hey now Conservative Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC)... whatchaGonnaDo when candidate for CPC leader Patrick Brown gets tooooo close to the 'annointedOne' Poilievre? Why, no worries, you simply disqualify the guy! Clearly Brown's relentless attacks against the presumed frontrunner in the race, Pierre Poilievre, has consequence! Patrick Brown disqualified from Conservative leadership race

geezaz! When the CPC loses lilleyPad... and Kinsella!



Disqualifying Brown an indictment of Conservative Party itself --- The party establishment appear to have rigged the race to favour Pierre Poilievre.

Quote
After answering questions on a variety of issues, though, Brown said he was booted from the race over an anonymous allegation that an organizer was being paid by a private company to campaign for him. He said his campaign asked for details on who the organizer was, or which company was allegedly paying organizers, but said the party refused to say.

“You can’t fight a phantom,” Brown said.

Without details, he said his team wasn’t able to look into the matter or provide evidence either supporting or refuting the allegation.

He called the process to remove him unfair, damaging to the party, and ultimately done to try and ensure a Pierre Poilievre victory.

Looks like he won't be going quietly...

Over at the Conspiracy Board the people who cried conspiracy when the far-right candidates were tossed are strangely silent.

Personally I don't care.  I would support a good Conservative candidate if the party ever for some reason elected one, but not Poilievre who is a populist pull-doll with all the preprogrammed talky talks.  Pull the string ... "Freedom" and then pull it again "Freedom"

Global News' Rachel Gilmore: asking Poilievre/campaign (apparently inconvenient) questions about his associations with some of the 'far-right' Trucker Convoy characters - instead of receiving a response with answers to the questions, Gilmore is instead called unprofessional while Poilievre plays the, 'victim under attack' ploy!

(^) Global News' Rachel Gilmore's related column: How close is too close to the far-right? Why some experts are worried about Canada’s MPs

Quote
On June 30, Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre made a choice.

Wearing a crisp blue shirt and a politician’s smile, he walked up to a group of anti-vaccine mandate protesters and led the pack as it walked down Ottawa’s streets.

Beside him marched a man named James Topp, an anti-vaccine figure now set to face a court martial, who had been walking across the country to draw attention to his opposition to vaccine mandates. Topp, however, had recently joined a podcast run by far-right figurehead Jeremy Mackenzie for over an hour, saying that the podcast and others like it “kept (him) hanging on.” Mackenzie said in January that the “Freedom Convoy,” which gathered in Ottawa in February, could “bring down the government.”

“I want to be there. I want to see this s–-t happen,” Mackenzie said in a YouTube broadcast at the time.

It’s unclear why Poilievre “felt that he needed to” meet with Topp, said Stephanie Carvin, a former CSIS analyst who now teaches at Carleton University.

“But it definitely was a choice with consequences,” she said — including, potentially, emboldening and legitimizing the more extreme views among the convoy’s supporters.

the anonymous person 'whistleblower' behind the Patrick Brown accusations is no longer anonymous... and none other than the Sun's Warren Kinsella writes an 'open letter' to her: Open letter to 'whistleblower' behind Patrick Brown accusations

Quote
Dear Debbie Jodoin:
.
It’s simply an open letter written to you, the person identified as the “whistleblower” who prompted the expulsion of Patrick Brown from the Conservative leadership race.

One complaint from one person: that’s all it took, Debbie. Apparently what you had to say was so powerful, so incontrovertible, so damning, you alone could force the expulsion of one of the frontrunners in your party’s leadership contest. Even after the ballots have been printed up with his name on them. Wow.

What did you say that would have such a dramatic result? That’s the question everyone is asking, because the Conservative Party brass are refusing to say anything meaningful.
.
Now, Debbie, I sent you a number of questions prior to writing this opinion column. You did not respond to any of them.

Here they are:

1. Have you received employment or compensation, or offer of same, by the Poilievre campaign or the Conservative Party?

2. You have posted multiple statements on social media applauding Poilievre and his campaign staff. Were you in contact with them, or their representatives, when you were ostensibly supporting Patrick Brown?

3. We have received statements and suggestions that you were placed — or offered yourself to do so — in the Brown campaign by the Poilievre campaign to damage the former. Is this true?

4. Have you received any compensation or consideration from any individual associated with the Poilievre campaign, or supportive of same?

Anyway. No response.
