Sun Media: Justin, Pierre and the polls


  1. Martin Dixon says:

    I have been saying for more than a year that many in the MSM were pushing fiction about Pierre being angry. It was basically a desperate lie and it has been finally proven as such. All they had to do was go to or watch one of his rallies. Immigrants, youth, women, etc. Strangely enough, the ones now polling strong support. Spoiled NIMBY golden pension retired civil servant lottery winning multi millionaire Toronto housing baby boomer groupie females afraid of a little snow and call in the army who still swoon when Justin is on TV is the only demographic where he is still leading. Seriously, who would want to stand with them?

    • Derek Pearce says:

      I love how much Toronto lives rent-free in your head.

      • Martin Dixon says:

        Derek, it was much more specific than just Toronto. Not to mention that it is a easy target! I can easily trigger my conservative friends too. I don’t know, I don’t have a lot of time for those 5 million dollar homeowners who use advisors to keep their income sheltered in corporations to keep their income low enough to keep all of their OAS and then pat themselves on the back because they think they are voting for Beautiful People TM. Your mileage, of course, likely varies.

  2. John Mraz says:

    With no worthy heir apparent to our realm, the dauphin has no clothes and must take a walk in the leaves, or reduce the Liberals to an ignominious erasure. Don’t be disappointed when you’re disappointed.

  3. Martin Dixon says:

    That ladies and gentlemen was a speech from the next PM of Canada. Here is the placeholder. Only explanation is he is trolling us. And what about his privacy request?


  4. Sean says:

    Right now is a very…. very…. dangerous time…. for Tories. They are flying high, *unreasonably high*, in the polls right now. Canadians have been kicking their tires and are just settling in the front seat for a test drive. But the key hasn’t been turned yet. With these crazy poll #s, the temptation will grow to start making strident / silly remarks / celebrate too early. They need to be careful this weekend especially that they don’t provide Liberals with any war room material.

    The key right now is to perform like a championship caliber team deep in the playoffs. If you can smell the victory… deny your senses…. and always return to the basics. Concentrate on what is right in front of you. For Tories that is inflation, housing, taxes. They need to keep it really, really simple for a year or so to keep Joe and Jane front porch in their corner.

    • Martin Dixon says:

      Totally agree. But post speech, the only person that the CBC could pull out to criticize PP’s speech was some non entity named David Cymbaluk. He literally looked like he had the mad cow and I couldn’t figure out what he was talking about.

    • Sean,

      We’ve got to stay humble. Pierre will do that.

      • Martin Dixon says:

        And, hopefully, these Liberals just keep talking. Pablo weighed in post speech. Called the speech far right republican. I wish I could find the video.

        • Pablo…that great expert on all things politics. Enough said. He’s positively scared shitless. They can feel the momentum building every day for their future massive loss at the polls. In short, a plurality of Canadians already want them out and just wait for the public inquiry: they think they can massage that one and filter public evidence without leaks. They’re dreaming. It’s literally all down for them going forward.

  5. John,

    I will very arrogantly serve as your editor of your last sentence: [d]on’t be disappointed when you’re a disappointment. (Smiling.)

  6. Douglas W says:

    Double P has assembled a team that has game.

    This team has crafted sharp, pinpoint messaging.
    Fast response time to negativity.
    Fashioned a disciplined caucus.

    All the well, this Prime Minister and this government looks weary.
    Incapable of injecting fresh ideas; a fresh vision.
    They’re hanging on for dear life.
    Painful to watch.

    This country deserves far better.

    • Peter Williams says:

      Sounds like our Illustrious Exalted Dear Leader is having a wonderful time at the G20.

      Modi didn’t show Trudeau in his Twitter (X) first day welcoming tweet, but the video showed lots of other leaders.

      Trudeau is relegated to a hallway meeting with Modi. Wow!!!

      Trudeau is rapidly becoming Mr Irrelevant on the world stage.

  7. From The Toronto Star:

    MP Alexandra Mendès: “I don’t think we do a good enough job of promoting what we do.”;

    MP Brendan Hanley: “We haven’t been very savvy, very responsive,”[…];

    Another MP: “Where the fuck are the videos on Poilièvre?”;

    Another complained that if an MP says something that Trudeau isn’t going to like, […] “he always cuts you off.”

    • Martin Dixon says:

      It also said that Trudeau won’t listen to the “know nothings”. If anyone is in a position to identify know nothings it would be Justin.

      • Martin,

        How I quite literally hated that arrogant old bastard. I guess this acorn didn’t fall far from the tree after all. This is what the other asshole said about some MPs:
        “The opposition … do not have to govern, they have only to talk. The best place in which to talk, if they want a forum, is, of course, Parliament. When they get home, when they get out of Parliament, when they are 50 yards from Parliament Hill, they are no longer honourable members – THEY ARE JUST NOBODIES, Mr. Speaker.” [Emphasis added.]

  8. Martin Dixon says:

    Hands up all the Liberals that are still quoting Mulroney?


    • Martin,

      Well, any Mulroney would wants to lead better quickly change parties, cause they don’t have a hope in hell, not in the CPC. Charest was naive enough to try. He wasted his time. That’s called political reality. The PCP is dead and will stay that way, never, ever, to be heard from again. I hope MacKay doesn’t waste his time in the future.

      • Martin Dixon says:

        Ronald, I am sure there are discussions taking place right now with MacKay after his speech. He would take down Fraser and get us our own Atlantic wall.

  9. Montrealaise says:

    Until very recently, the one part of Canada Trudeau’s Liberals could count on was Quebec. No more. I’ve been following the polls closely; the Liberals have been neck and neck with the Bloc Québécois all summer, but this past week, the Bloc pulled ahead.

    • Montréalaise,

      Watch Jean-Talon on October 2nd. It will have both Legault and Drainville crying in their right-wing beer. The PQ will take the riding and it’s but the beginning of a multi-year journey for St-Pierre Plamondon. If momentum builds quietly but steadily over time, as I expect, odds dramatically increase that the PQ leader will pull off another 1976 — totally unexpected and shocking to most people like it was with Lévesque — but expected by me. The CAQ likely will be out and the PQ in. And then the work begins to build support for a referendum in a second mandate and watch out: this is 2023, it probably passes this time, thanks to the lack of our signature on the constitution, not to mention the view of most Québécois that they’re at least as good as the Anglos in English Canada, so why not. Finally, no more closeted inferiority complex. I think they win the referendum and English-Canada finally gets its so well-deserved massive coronary. Call it poetic justice. I’ll have one hell of a good and long laugh when it happens.
