Freeland: the pandemic is “a political opportunity”

This is worse than shocking. It’s disgusting.

    Canada has never had Finance Minister so thoroughly disgraced and tarnished before even presenting a budget. Any time spent reading the budget before feeding it directly into a paper shredder is an insult to the voters.

    • Walter says:

      Canada has never had a Finance Minister who was not a Lawyer or Accountant.
      The Trudeau tradition of appointing based on looks and popularity vs. based on qualifications continues.

    Maybe she’ll find some money for the 14 year old fake rail link in Peterborough which has already cost more than 100 million dollars in consulting fees without putting a single nail in the ground. Many experts agree that gas-lighting small town rubes with ludicrous infrastructure projects is the silver bullet for fighting the virus.

    I had no idea Elvira Gultch was a real person.

    Freeland from last fall

    “I think all Canadians understand that the restart of our economy needs to be green. It also needs to be equitable. It needs to be inclusive. And we need to focus very much on jobs and growth.”

    Presumably all the women allowed back into the workforce can get jobs installing Chinese slave labour made solar panels. Green and equitable!

    What is the surrounding context? I’m no liberal, but I’ve been around the internet long enough to know that statements without context can be extremely misleading and its pretty clear the we don’t have the context to her statement.

    • irreversible road map to freedom says:

      Honestly, I don’t think context matters… How could a senior official with any moral / ethical scruples at all possibly be looking at COVID from that angle during the crisis?! I challenge with the same question offered to Scot… WTF is a proper place / time / audience to be making such outrageous statements?! Make no mistake about it, the country is falling apart at the seems at an existential level not seen in several generations…. So this is an opportunity to f&%k with the system in ways that we normally would not attempt?! What is this? Republican Rome? Revolutionary Russia? The Weimar Republic?! Has she lost her GD mind?!

    • irreversible road map to freedom says:

      Thanks for affirming my point Scot. There is no context that could possibly make this any better. She should do the honorable thing and resign before delivering the most dishonest / disgraceful budget in Canadian history.

      • Campbell says:

        You’re already sounding more than a little over-the-top with your other comments, but the pre-emptive suggestion to resign completes the picture of “someone whose comments can safely be ignored”.

        • irreversable road map to freedom says:

          Chrystia Freeland shrugged through Lavscam. She shrugged through Blackface x 3. She shrugged through WEscam. She turned to Doug Ford for therapy. Her own words. Her top bureaucrat resigned because the department is obviously an out of control mess. She has taken forever to put together a budget probably because its loaded with lies about Canada’s position. She says Canada’s greatest crisis of a lifetime is an “opportunity”. Her continued presence in the position serves no practical purpose. Its past time for her to pack it in and stop wasting everyone’s time.

  6. Warren says:

    I’m not your fucking researcher.

  7. irreversible road map to freedom says:

    Perhaps you can enlighten us Scot… what precisely is the appropriate context for a Senior Minister to be making such remarks?

    • Campbell says:

      How about, “any great change in society represents political opportunity for all political parties to present a bold vision for changes they believe will positively impact society in a “new normal” type of condition”?

      Pointing out the silver linings associated with any great tragedy isn’t scandalous, it’s rational. As someone who would love to see society take great strides forward in a variety of areas, I hope that all of the miseries caused by the pandemic can at least serve as a catalyst for major changes in some areas. And if that is “political opportunity”, then you either have to consider Freeland’s remarks to be less than scandalous, or lump me in along with her as a villain.

      • irreversable road map to freedom says:

        Oh really?! Then why doesn’t she stand up in Parliament and sing us these happy lullabies? Because she knows her career would be over by the end of the business day.

        Remember Churchill telling the world about all the opportunity created by the blitz? Lincoln seeing opportunity at Gettysburg? No…. We don’t.

  8. Quo Vadis says:

    Scotty,

    Still sticking around to have some fun here (your words)? Or is it becoming increasing difficult? I can imagine how difficult it is defending the filth of this government.

  9. Gilbert says:

    The CPC needs to make sure Canadians see this video.

  10. Gloriousus et Liber says:

    Reminds me of when a Tory minister said E. coli or salmonella was “sexy”. I remember her being rightfully excoriated in the Liberal-friendly press for that remark.

  11. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Freeland: spoken like a True Liberal! At least, for once, she somehow manages to come off as somewhat authentic. Congratulations.

    Course all the CarneyClan are having serial orgasms. The leadership is definitely theirs now, in a cake walk.
    Now, I finally understand what makes Freeland and this Prime Minister birds of a feather.

  12. Joseph says:

    I have only one question.

    Has it hit 20 million views yet?

  13. Jeff says:

    Hey Scoty,
    I thought we where betting on the 10 million doses!!
