  1. As to:
    "(finance minister) Oliver was quick to rub salt into the wound, issuing a statement accusing Trudeau of poor judgement ..."

    True statement -

    However:
    Much poorer judgement would be "Canada is not in a recession" (Oliver himself - despite the realities to the contrary)
    or
    " We have balanced the budget as promised" (again Oliver). The actual outlook is a deficit of over a billion this fiscal year - AFTER having a number of large sell-offs to prevent it)
    or
    Canada will achieve a growth rate of 2 to 2 i/2 percent in 2015. (another reality check needed here) - Canada's "growth rate" is currently less than 1% and slipping more each day.

    Nice try, Joe - on behalf of yourself and and your "economist" (now there's a misnomer) leader, the dangerous nitwit, Harper.
  2. @Angry Bill As to my "rational thought and cogent arguments":

    Cogent and rational #1:
    Harper's attempt at a vote grab with 19th century "punishment" won't work.

    Cogent and rational #2:
    Patrick Brown does have the worst voting record in the House

    Cogent and rational #3:
    Despite trying to take credit for it, Brown did not come up with "Hockey Night in Barrie"

    Cogent and rational #4:
    Brown did send out mailing at our expense for a Councillor in Barrie.

    Cogent and rational #5:
    The people of Ontario will not vote for the ilk of Brown, a professional politician, who barely does his required work while, simultaneously, failing to come up with a single original idea during his "part" time in the House.

    Damn ... the truth hurts doesn't it?

  4. And the Harper neo-con nitwits remain stuck in the 19th century yet again. Rumour has it that Julian Fantino's new job is searching for stocks for the town square shaming of accused criminals.

    This party is so deprived of reasoned thought or discourse that they actually make excuses for their absentee backbench guy, Patrick Brown, missing more votes than anyone else in the House.

    Who is Patrick Brown you ask? Why, he's the new saviour of the provincial Con nitwits. He's the same guy who invented "Hockey Night in Barrie" - no - wait a minute - he didn't ... he just said he did.
    Perhaps he meant to say he invented the internet - no - Al Gore already took credit for that.
    He does have one "accomplishment" in his totally lackluster political career however. In November 2010, he used his Canadian House of Commons mail account. to send flyers to his riding on behalf of Barrie City Councillor Michael Prowse. (always keeping a close eye on your federal tax dollars).

    The latest polls show he's ahead of Christine Elliott for the leadership. Great - go Patrick, go !! Your win will guarantee keeping the provincial cons out of power for another 8 or 10 years.

    That, combined with the inevitable loss by the federal Con nitwits will give Canada a chance to breathe a little easier again and, perhaps, begin paying down the largest debt in our history - thanks to Harper, the "economist".
  5. Harper the "economist" strikes yet again.

    A 27 Billion dollar sell-out of yet more Canadian manufacturing and a loss of many hundreds, if not thousands of jobs as a result.

    All of this to pretend having his "balanced" budget this year while continuing to be the CEO of the largest debt in Canadian history.

    Harper and his nitwits must go.
  6. Cons ... the gift that keeps on giving !!
  7. Excellent start, Tiffany. Looking forward to more.
  8. Baird bails...

    Adams jumps...

    Who's next?
  9. @DanielC_7878 You have raised a very credible possible third reason.
  10. John Baird has recognized that one of the following is about to happen:

    Either - Harper can't stomach the idea of Trudeau winning the next election and will quit;
    Or - Harper's ego will keep him in the fight until the next election when the Liberals will defeat him.

    Baird is merely positioning himself as the only Con who has a shot at beating Jason Kenny for the leadership.
