I literally laughed out loud when this headline scrolled through my Twitter feed: Canada will donate excess COVID-19 vaccine to poorer countries Excess? We're at least six months away from knowing if we have enough to meet demand from Canadians, yet we can commit to giving the vaccine away to other countries? Obviously, it's never too early for another virtue-signalling … [Read more...]
Virtue Signalling vs Action: Another Liberal Failure, Another National Disgrace
If Justin Trudeau is faced with a choice between solving a problem or talking about solving the problem, Justin Trudeau will opt for useless chatter and virtue-signalling every time. On December 3rd, 2020, that pattern continued when the Trudeau government tabled Bill C-15, An Act respecting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, into the House … [Read more...]
Justin Trudeau: All I want for Christmas is a Pandemic Election
December 2, 2020, 16:00 hrs | Updated final analysis at the bottom of the page. Justin Trudeau will use his government’s December 1st fiscal update to force opposition parties to either lick his boots or send Canadians to the polls. This comes with some sharp unknowns for all sides, but the chips appear to be stacked in favour of the … [Read more...]
Is Widespread Election Fraud Coming to Canada?
Will the next Canadian federal election be marred by widespread electoral fraud? Some would contend election fraud arrived ages ago, albeit not in any organized fashion. But are those people correct? The answer, sadly, is both "Yes" and "No". Elections Canada says it identified over 85,000 names on the federal voter list who were not citizens prior to the 2019 federal … [Read more...]
Andrew Scheer Shoots Himself in the Face… Again
Hot on the heels of the Yasmin Ratansi scandal where the now-former Liberal MP hired her sister and lied about it, we learn Andrew Scheer stole a page from the Liberal Entitlement Handbook and took it to heart. Andrew Scheer hired his sister-in-law, Erica Honoway, to work in his constituency office. While technically this does not violate Parliamentary hiring rules, it's … [Read more...]
Yasmin Ratansi: Just Another Ethically-Challenged Liberal MP
What is it with Liberal Members of Parliament? Do they honestly believe the rules don't apply to them? That's the question at the top of my mind after news broke that Yasmin Ratansi, Member of Parliament for Don Valley East, hired her sister, Zeenat Khatri, and lied about it. CBC reports Yasmin Ratansi employed her sister from 2005 to 2011 when Ratansi lost her seat in … [Read more...]
Time to Incarcerate Trump Supporters?
Last Friday afternoon the media declared Joe Biden President-Elect of the United States of America despite the fact not a single official source has reached this conclusion. This is hardly surprising. The media hated Donald Trump long before he won the 2016 Presidential election and has spent the last four years trying to discredit him. Despite Trump proving every one of … [Read more...]
Liberals Worst Fundraising Quarter in almost a Decade: What Does It Mean?
On October 30, 2020, the Conservative Party sent out an email crowing (and rightly so) about their best fundraising quarter in Party history outside of an election year. From July 1 thru September 30th, the Conservative Party raised $5,659,091.83 from 39,451 individual donors. The Conservative Party also out-fundraised the Liberals in quarters one and two. While this is … [Read more...]
Did NDP Candidate Dan Coulter Just Make Electoral History in Chilliwack, BC?
Congratulations to Dan Coulter who, if the preliminary results hold, made provincial electoral history as the first NDP candidate ever elected in the provincial riding of Chilliwack, British Columbia.

Jagmeet Singh: Justin Trudeau’s Useful Idiot
On Tuesday, October 21, 2020, Jagmeet Singh, Justin Trudeau’s most useful idiot, proved what millions of Canadians already knew: the NDP leader is monumentally inept. The Liberal Party’s communications team might as well have drafted the statement Singh made prior to the confidence vote in Parliament. “People need help right now. They need confidence in the future. They’re … [Read more...]
Haldimand—Norfolk Nomination: Another Unforced Error by the Conservative Party of Canada?
We’re half-way through October, and two unforced errors by the Conservative Party brass are already driving loyal Party members out the door.

Part 1: Erin O’Toole: When Will You Keep Your Promise to End the Election Expenses Clawback? Part 2: Will the Real Leader of the Conservative Party Please … [Read more...]
Will the Real Leader of the Conservative Party Please Stand Up?
Question: Who controls the Conservative Party of Canada? Answer: He who controls the bank account controls the Party. Erin O'Toole does not control the Party's bank account. James Dodds, the man who does, refuses to honour Erin O'Toole's leadership campaign promise to Party members. During the Conservative Party’s leadership contest, Erin O’Toole’s promise was clear in … [Read more...]
Bill Blair: Promoted to his Level of Incompetence?
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair was a career politician long before he ran for public office in the 2015 federal election. It was as a member of the Toronto Police Service, and eventually as its chief, where Bill Blair mastered the art of deception as a means of pushing forward his personal ideology. After five years in government, one question about Bill Blair desperately … [Read more...]
Portland’s Nightly Riots and its Ban on Facial Recognition Tech
In Portland, Oregon, George Floyd’s death at the hands of police sparked riots, arson and looting, just as it did all across America. Portland’s riots, generously called “public demonstrations” by woke media outlets and woke politicians alike, take place nightly and have for the past 120 days. Some “protesters” say the riots will continue every night until the U.S. … [Read more...]
Erin O’Toole: When Will You Keep Your Promise to End the Election Expenses Clawback?
Erin O'Toole, when will you keep your promise to end the Election Expenses Clawback? I ask this not because I believe Erin O'Toole is not on the right track (he is), but because Conservative EDAs deserve to know when they can expect reimbursement for the tens of thousands of dollars the Conservative Party withheld from their Elections Canada rebate after the 2019 federal … [Read more...]

Will BC Premier John Horgan Call an Early Election?
UPDATE: 12:15pm. Usually it takes longer than 5 hours for me to be proven correct. LOL At 11:00am this morning, BC Premier John Horgan announced his request to dissolve the Legislature was granted, placing the province into a fall election campaign where ballots will be cast on October 24th.

Is Quebec’s Forced Quarantine Coming to Your Province Next? Should it?
As of September 16, 2020, the Province of Quebec has 65,857 confirmed cases of the novel corona virus commonly referred to as COVID-19, of which 2,141 are considered "active" cases - a sharp increase from just three weeks ago. Part of that increase, if media reports are to be believed, are directly attributable to Quebec City's Bar Kirouac, a popular karaoke bar. "We're … [Read more...]
Raj Grewal: Just Another Ethically-Challenged Liberal MP?
Raj Grewal, an ethically-challenged Liberal (and former MP for Brampton East) is facing criminal charges for fraud and breach of trust. Given what we know about Justin Trudeau's repeated ethics violations (as well as those of his cabinet colleagues), it's no surprise that another former member of Team Trudeau is just as ethically-challenged as the current Prime Minister of … [Read more...]
Liberal Hypocrisy: Why Derek Sloan’s removal is NOT the issue
“Erin O’Toole needs to show leadership by removing Conservative MP Derek Sloan from his caucus, and refusing to sign his nomination papers as a Conservative candidate.” The howls of indignation heard across social media are entirely predictable, and they’re also entirely irrelevant. The Liberal Party's call for Derek Sloan's removal from the Conservative caucus have nothing … [Read more...]
CPC HQ: What Moron Leaves Counting the Ballots to the Last Second?
Congratulations to Erin O'Toole, the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. Your work begins today. Hopefully it includes sweeping out the rot at Conservative Party Headquarters (and the rest of Ottawa, too). Now, a few hard questions for CPC HQ and the utter debacle they displayed for Canada last night. First. CPC HQ, are you so self-absorbed … [Read more...]
CPC HQ’s Idiotic Love Affair with ‘Gotcha’ Politics
"I would say amen to raising taxes..." After five years of Chrystia Freeland holding public office, this phrase from 2011 is the best the Conservative Party's opposition research team can come up with? That's pathetic. For reasons I will never understand, the Conservative Party’s communications team is in love with taking one-liners like this out of context, then … [Read more...]
Pierre Poilievre: The REAL Scoop on Why the RCMP Came Clean Friday Afternoon
For two weeks, gun owners have tried and tried to get the Minister of Public Safety, the man responsible for the RCMP, to answer one simple question. “Minister Blair, is the RCMP’s letter to gun owners a Firearm Registration Certificate Revocation letter?" For two weeks Bill Blair and the RCMP refused to answer this simple question. Then, miraculously, on the Friday … [Read more...]
Bill Blair Repeats Lies in Response to ePetition e-2341
It should come as no surprise that Public Safety Minister Bill Blair continues to peddle lies about his May 1st gun ban by Order in Council - specifically: "our prohibition will not impact the activities of law-abiding hunters or sport shooters." and "These weapons have no legitimate civilian use, as they are designed to take as many lives as possible, as efficiently as … [Read more...]
Justin Trudeau’s WE Apology is Meaningless – Just Like all His Others
When is an apology meaningless? When it comes from the mouth of a Trudeau. “There is no context in which someone doesn’t have responsibility for things they’ve done in the past,” Justin Trudeau said before refusing to take responsibility for a series of personal indiscretions spanning decades. Saying you are sorry, when not followed by an immediate change of heart and … [Read more...]
Police use guns designed “to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time”
On May 1, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lectured Canadians on the evils of the AR-15 firearm. "These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only to kill the largest number of people in the shortest amount of time. There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada." Public Safety Minister Bill Blair echoed the Prime Minister's virtue-signalling … [Read more...]
Team Trudeau: Gerry Hawes’ Child Pornography Arrest
If news of Liberal MP Marwan Tabbara's arrest for assault didn't upset the Liberal Party's apple cart, news that Gerry Hawes, a longtime Liberal Party insider, was arrested for child pornography most certainly will. On June 11, 2020, 58-year-old Gerry Hawes, who worked for Party in various backroom roles for 30 years, was arrested and charged with accessing and possessing … [Read more...]
