Here, class, we have an example of a mediocre micropenised middle aged white guy cosplaying as a black man and indulging in hoary racial stereotypes as a way of compensating for their own deep inadequacies.

He’s closer to 12, living in his mom’s basement.  He’s nowhere near middle aged.

Press Progress - Luke LeBrun, July 13, 2022: Only 1-in-10 Canadians Believe ‘Free Speech’ is in Crisis, Despite What Right-Wing Voices Claim



Quote
New research suggests a lopsided majority of Canadians do not believe “free speech” is on the verge of disappearing in Canada, findings that pour a tall glass of cold water on claims promoted by Pierre Poilievre and right-wing media sources.

According to a new survey released by the University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Hub for Applied and Social Research, the belief that “freedom of speech” is in crisis appears to be a top-of-mind concern for a very small – but very loud – minority of Canadians.

Only 12.4% of respondents said they believe Canadians have little to no “freedom of speech” – by contrast, more than eight-in-ten Canadians take a less catastrophic view.

“The majority of respondents (85.9%) believe Canadians fully or somewhat have freedom of speech,” the USask survey states.

He was fined for walking through a closed park, not for lack of masking.

Correct.  I didn't say otherwise.

yabut c'mon, Poilievre is a uniter... not a divider!

Will Red Tories create a new political party if Poilievre wins the CPC leadership?

Quote
... with populist pretender Pierre Poilievre poised since the outset to capture the poisoned chalice of Canadian politics that is the Conservative Party leadership.

The party looks set to embrace the grievance politics of U.S. Republicans and the European far right, just as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his fellow Liberals always hoped it would. They know that, faced with a Conservative Party leader who gives succour to misguided anti-vaxxers, angry truckers and right-wing conspiracy theorists, mainstream Canadian voters will opt for the comparatively safe Liberals, no matter how irritatingly woke the party’s leadership becomes.

Some supporters of Poilievre rival Jean Charest have concluded as much and are already musing about the creation of a new centre-right political party that would look, well, a lot like the old Progressive Conservative Party Mr. Charest led between 1993 and 1998.
.
“Who speaks for the majority of mainstream Canadians, who describe themselves as fiscal conservatives with progressive views on social issues?” the group’s founder, former Tory leadership candidate Rick Peterson, writes on Centre Ice’s website. “Who speaks for those of us focused on pragmatic solutions and policies? Who speaks for those of us who dismay at the loud, single-issue and predictably slanted views that often dominate Party politics and leadership races?”
.
Even if a new centre-right political party were to emerge in the wake of a Poilievre victory on Sept. 10, it is not clear if Mr. Charest, at 64, would be the obvious person to lead it. Mr. Macron was not yet 40 when he founded La République en Marche. And Mr. Charest’s current leadership campaign, while solid and principled, has not exactly caught on with the broader Canadian electorate.

Still, if only to restore some sanity to federal politics, no one should discourage Mr. Charest from trying.

Betteridge's law of headlines

"This story is a great demonstration of my maxim that any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word "no." The reason why journalists use that style of headline is that they know the story is probably bullshit, and don’t actually have the sources and facts to back it up, but still want to run it."

oh really! The linked-to G&M article is a mix of openly stated speculation peppered with supporting references to the Charest campaign's co-chairperson and former CPC leadership candidate Rick Peterson... founder of the group, also as referenced in the article, 'Centre Ice Conservatives'!

but hey now, another article (in The Hill Times) with some of the same players referenced... note the article headline doesn't end in a question mark! /snarc
=> If Conservatives fail to win next federal election, party would split, say some Conservatives

Quote
Self-described “progressive liberal” and freelance columnist Andrew Perez: “Blue Tories are becoming an endangered species,” and that if something isn’t done to combat the party’s increased embrace of populism, 2022 will be the year they finally go extinct.

While Perez said in an interview with The Hill Times that he believes the Red Tories may have “died” in 2003 after the creation of the CPC, there still remained a strong contingent of Blues alongside other social conservatives and libertarians.

However, since the defeat of Harper in 2015, the party has been “submerged by a brigade of ‘freedom-loving,’ anti-science, anti-establishment ‘activists’ that are intent on installing Pierre Poilievre as leader–whatever the cost to their party and movement.”

Perez argued that Poilievre, in particular, has “glommed on to grievance-based populism,” possibly due to learning the wrong lessons from the defeat of the party’s last two leaders, Scheer and O’Toole.

“I think there’s a sense within the party that the last two leaders were not effective and that the party needs to tack to the far right,” Perez said. “To really champion an approach that is diametrically opposed to Trudeau.”

the "legend" of Stephen Harper holds that his governing prowess managed to keep the fringe elements of the CPC in line... that's its only in Opposition that the populist driving caucus members have been given a free path to embrace the fringe minorities (aka, 'the base') with populist drivel!

but hey now, is this an actual endorsement from Harper - and if so, does it even carry any weight?
=> Stephen Harper says Pierre Poilievre has the best chance to win the next federal election

Quote
Former prime minister Stephen Harper says Pierre Poilievre is the Conservative leadership candidate with the best shot at leading the party to victory in the next federal election.

Harper's declaration came in a Monday evening video posted to Facebook and Twitter, in which he described Poilievre's ability to galvanize support from new members as a critical ingredient for success.

"That's how we win the next federal election, and in my opinion, Pierre has made by far the strongest case," Harper said.
