    Like YOU’VE said previously, when you’re almost always by necessity continually playing defence, you’re losing.

  2. J.Ph. Brunet says:

    Trudeau literally hijacked the debates Putin-style so he could contrive a self-serving polemic Potemkin village, but he still couldn’t rig things enough to make himself look good.

  3. J.Ph. Brunet says:

    Uninformed, fearless, out-on-a-limb, you-must-be-kidding prognostication:
    Hither cometh the most shocking (and fun) reversal in Canadian electoral history.
    A broad coalition of disaffected social conservatives, put off by O’Toole’s happy-faced we’ve-got-to-change I’ve-got-a-plan quasi-liberalism, along with Trudeau-hating moderates, business liberals, temporarily-parked NDPers, why-bodder-with-le-bloc-ers, generation-whatevers, and increasingly, maturing not-so-lefty-anymores (a phenomenon quietly spreading throughout the Western world) — All have found a common home, namely the ragtag outfit headed by Dr. Jordan Peterson’s twitter bud, one Maxime Bernier.
    By the end of next week: A virtual three-way tie between LPC, CPC and PPC, with every party in the 25-27% range.

    • Phil in London says:

      Wow now that is a gutsy call. I look forward to some narrowing of the numbers like the PPC rallies where I can only count 80 people and they say 1000 are present.

      Like I said gutsy, but I won’t call you delusional. I think there is an appetite for change and a lot won’t buy into the NDP or the Bloc delivering that change.

      If the PPC is polling that high in a week a lot of support has drifted from all parties. For that to be realistic, the LPC and CPC have to lose more than a few points while the other parties become nearly non-existent.

      That would make this early election call a blunder bigger than the Peterson and Prentice calls.

    Blanchet was a waste of space most of the time, he’s not even running people in the vast majority of English speaking ridings.

    The Green and NDP leaders impressed me, but left me wondering yet again why they are seperate parties.

    O’Toole came off like likable and chill and reasonable, it’s going to be impossible make him look like a Tory boogeyman and that makes him useless to Trudeau as a weapon against the Greens and NDP.

    Trudeau had a horrible night, he lied and it was obvious he was lying most of the night.

  5. Peter Williams says:

    Parliament is not working so Trudeau called an election.

    What wasn’t working? Oh the committees were starting to ask tough questions and delving into areas the Liberals didn’t want investigated?

    Were you afraid the NDP or Bloc wouldn’t support your tax on home sales?

  6. Mark says:

    Blanchet didn’t even try to answer the question about Quebec’s racism. Annamie Paul’s “let me educate you” was delicious!!

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:

      Mark,

      Actually Blanchet did answer it: he said he acknowledged that systemic racism exists in Quebec previously but then the other provinces’ anglos went in for Quebec bashing. He did not agree that the twin laws are racist — but they are. But then the hypocrites in English Canada play the racism virgin card and that’s at best phoney baloney. SR exists everywhere in Canada, in the States, in South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. In short, everywhere on planet Earth. Don’t believe me? Then just think back to English Canada, Mounties and Turbans back in the 80s…not exactly our finest moment. In fact, it was a national disgrace.

  7. Peter Williams says:

    Wonder if Trudeau was upset that Craig Keilburger was off the non-partisan debate commission?

    Trudeau wants a majority so he can continue his WE ways without public or Parliamentary scrutiny.

    • RKJ says:

      Agreed. He has a hidden agenda that likely connects with money for himself and his family.

      • Peter Williams says:

        In addition, rumour has it, that Justin would like new boats for Harrington Lake. I mean the eight boats tax payers paid for are getting old, so it is time for new ones.
