    Kang and Kodos…..
    The Conservative and Liberal teams have launched television ad campaigns ahead of October's federal election with a shared focus on offering to make everyday life more affordable for Canadians.

      Did anyone say "How?" (That was rhetorical).

      I like this from the link:

      Dennis Matthews one of the pooh bahs at a research outfit said:

      "A lot of work goes into crafting these slogans...."

      Thanks Dennis.

      With a bit of tongue in cheek, it would seem that there are no pressing/definable matters of concern to be debated then? Everyone just wants to move ahead... Something all of us should aspire to.

      Should be a barn burner of an election campaign.

        And in other news taking their cue from Justin the CBC has apologized to any remaining National Socialists believed to be still alive in Germany.

        In a heartfelt apology Rosie Barton, after wiping the donut crumbs off her gaping pie hole, apologized to Nazis everywhere for having to endure the indignity of being compared to the milllions of small c conservatives across Canada.

        Its estimated that Rosies audience (pegged at over 79 viewers) who were watching the National that night chanted boo-ya in unison.

        Edit... audience now estimated at 78 viewers

          If the mainline parties won't talk about issues that matter or, even worse, declare that such issues are beyond debate, voters will eventually find someone who will talk about those issues. And you really won't like those people....
          As the country's confidence in democracy has declined, support for populism and anti-immigrant sentiment has risen.

            Late night comedy from Hasan Minhaj in the Patriot Act takes runs at a lot of pols...and he hits another one square with this 30 minutes with our very own Skippy McFucknuts. Hasan really hammers Trudeau on the massive gaps between what he says and what he does. Its savage.

            Unsurprisingly the CBC or CTV or Global have had nary a mention....
            When Kimmel rag dolled Rob Ford a few years back cllps made the nightly news.....with the ever so smug tut tuts of the talking heads.

            One of the many one liners from Minhaj is a classic where he calls Quebec “Canada’s Boston”.

              45 days to go till the election and Skippy still hasn’t made it official..which lets him boost his carbon footprint by flying coast to coast on the taxpayers dime instead of from Liberal donations. What a skunk.

              Skippy is also going to duck the Munk Debate on Foreign Policy as well as a couple of others. Guess Butts and Telford are more terrified of what he might say and are willing to take their lumps on JT being labelled a coward or worse on the radio talk shows.

              Skippy really has his work cut out for him.

                Let me guess, first time you watched Patriot Act? I can't see that being your sort of entertainment usually ...
                And which part did you find to be the juiciest bit of dirt that Hassan revealed? That Trudeau's preference is to phase out fossil fuel dependence over a gradual period, while not forgetting that we have an economy to protect as well... Oooohhh, how scandalous. Lol

                I guess that means you think Scheer is the guy to lead us to greatness? Really?

                  Good guess on Patriot Act. But then I never heard of RR either till I fell over it.
                  Partial to John Oliver.

                  Over time you just come to the conclusion that no one is perfect. It comes down to who or what has less of what you just can’t stomach. And my guts can’t take any more of Skippy The Sanctimonious.

                    The debate stuff is telling in that Butts will only let Trudeau into the English debate that has been fixed for him. It's a bit strange because as stupid as Trudeau is he is pretty solid at rehearsing and learning his lines and he comes off fine in debates, especially where the field is so big. Seems like it's attracting needless fire - do these debates even matter?

                    P.S. This is also why the Torys lose. They happily and without comment will engage in a debate format specifically and expressly designed to harm them and do it with a smile on their face. Idiots. As soon as those moderators were announced Scheer should have said he would not attend unless non-partisan moderators were selected.

                      For me its a couple of things.

                      1) Butts is afraid Skippy will step on his dick in front of a large televised audience when fielding a couple of the non partisan moderator panels questions in areas where he is not comfortable. The saudi questions, whats the strategy with china, how many inches of pipeline have you laid this year after the July go ahead...etc. Justin is prone to fits of pique and he might screw himself with an emotional answer. The blowback on his courage or aloofness has been deemed to be less of an speedbump than risking him shooting himself in the foot.

                      2)Trudeau is also a petty little twat and he probably hasn't forgiven McLeans and especially Paul Wells for that Imposter article. This might be some payback to Inkless Paul. .


                      The panel on the debate Scheer will face is as uni dimensional as it gets. 5 people (4 of which are from the same province....the other Friesen spent most of her working life in Toronto or New York before she came back to read the news for the Shaw Family). On the face of it the panel might be deemed to carry a very big pro big hair bias.
                      Scheer has shown he can parry in the house so it should carry over to the debates. The Squad can't be seen to be too fawning or the public may notice. As to how many people watch... it depends if the Leafs are playing or if the baseball playoffs are on. Millennials won't waste any spare network data on their cell plans to watch it .

                        It's called hypocrisy. It's what the Canadian left does best when it comes to Quebec.... and it's yet another example of why the Canadian confederation no longer works.
                        Quebec's secularism law should definitely be an issue in the federal election campaign, writes former Parti Québécois leader Jean-François Lisée. That way, Justin Trudeau and other party leaders will be forced to acknowledge just how popular the ban on religious symbols is.

                          You think this is a hot election topic? I'm obviously not a fan of Quebec subverting the Charter using the not-withstanding clause, but otherwise gets a big "meh" from me, as something that will have to be challenged in the courts.

                            If this were a Conservative PM who was looking the other way on this piece of legislation that really does discriminate against people of a certain faith ..the CBC would have the squad out and all over this. Mesley and Barton would be holding candle light vigils in front of the PMs residence with 20 media trucks broadcasting live. But it’s Skippy so it’s like it doesn’t exist.

                            So yeah..it’s another element in a macro issue with the cult that has taken over the liberal party. The Butts, Telford and Trudeau crew do not believe that the law applies to them in some instances. Seemingly mostly ethical issues. That to me is a big thing.

                              Of course it gets a meh from you. Why would this be an issue that the most progressive, social justice prime minister in history need to address? Especially since it doesn't matter what the courts say cause Quebec has already asserted the notwithstanding clause to protect the legislation. Perhaps the champion of the people could use his moral authority and righteousness to speak out against the blatant bigotry? Nah, votes might be at risk. I wonder if Trudeau would be as silent if Saskatchewan banned black people from holding government jobs. It's a mystery....

                                But Scheer is looking the other way: he's as terrified as losing votes in Quebec as Trudeau is.

                                Look, I get it from a pure political calculation: French Canadians are xenophobes but they control the outcome of most federal elections, so the parties need to appeal to them. Fine. Just don't constantly spew this nonsense about 'diversity is strength' and all this other SJW horseshit all the time and then cater to the worst aspects of Quebecois nationalism when it suits you.

                                Trudeau is the bigger hypocrite but both parties are to blame for the double-standard.
