    I would like to have seen how Chretien, Martin and Rock would have handled this mess with McGuinty in charge in Ontario and Charest in Quebec.

  2. The Doctor says:

    The rest of the world typically doesn’t know jack shit about Canada.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      William,

      It’s almost the holiday season so I will give this one a pass. [Smiling.]

    • The Doctor says:

      I travel tons, and have many close friends overseas, including many Canadian expats.

      And I wasn’t talking about whether the world has a favourable or unfavourable view of Canadians generally; I was talking about whether your average non-Canadian is genuinely knowledgeable about Canadian politics or Canada. They aren’t. The generally favourable view of Trudeau is based on celebrity, good looks, a generally pro-woke, pro-liberal slant in global media (e.g., BBC, Guardian), and probably most importantly the fact that Trudeau cannot help but look good compared to Trump.

      But as far as knowledge of Canada goes, when you’re travelling overseas, you can go many many days reading local papers and Canada never comes up. We are just not that important. I love my country, but I’m just being realistic here.

    Biden doesn’t need any help. he just appointed a DuPont executive as an environmental advisor. he’s an old fashioned phony…like the Clintons and Obama. Biden is going to get primaried. He’s done before he’s even started.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      Terence,

      I’m with you to a point where I take any politician’s word with a humongous grain of salt. Biden has pledged to be a one-term president but I’ll believe it when I see it.

      Now, if he breaks his word, sure, he likely will be primaried but the Democrats will value power over all else and stick with him, just as Kennedy found out when he went up against Carter. When you seriously challenge an incumbent, that incumbent likely loses in the general and most if almost all Democrats won’t want the Ivanka-branded Trumpkins back in office anytime soon.

      Biden primaried….:) LOL / Get real…. He’s f%&king 78 years old!

    Warren is right to rake Trudeau over the coals each and every time Trudeau is exposed for being the suit dummy he is compared to his father. Trudeau senior was a Constitutional Lawyer that understood Canadian law well. His son Justin has no such understanding of the rule of law and the edifice of jurisprudence.

    Justin read the Coles Notes version of Canadian jurisprudence. He is a real suit dummy without question, and Warren is right to point out his myriad gaffs over time.

    And after reading this website I’m am less naive vis-a-vis federal level politics thanks to Warren’s writing on the matter.

    What happened to the comments on this post?

  6. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    I’ll say one thing for him: according to my count this was, at the very least, his third incarnation. Got to admire tenacity like that. But as you’ve said, the comments were not necessarily as impressive.
