Trudeau opinion piece?
It’s no secret Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under heavy criticism lately. His popularity began to tank when he went on his disastrous trip to India and, with his constant wardrobe changes, showed the entire world what a fool he is.

Will he and the Liberals win the next election scheduled to be held in October of next year? Lorne Gunter, writing an opinion piece in the Sun newspaper, thinks he will.


Canada Needs a True Conservative Party

Canada Needs a True Conservative Party
A couple of weeks ago, CPC MP Maxime Bernier held a press conference hours before the party’s 2018 convention was to begin in Halifax. Bernier not only announced he was quitting the party but he was going to start his own.

While the Quebec MP was always a thorn in the side of the Conservative Party of Canada, the writing was on the wall in mid-August when he sent out a series of tweets. Bernier criticized Trudeau’s “cult of diversity” and “extreme multiculturalism.” And he made the politically incorrect statement people who do not accept Western values and have no intention of integrating into Canadian society should not be allowed to immigrate here. These are statements the CPC would never dare make. (Spencer Fernando, Aug. 12)


Distrust of Police Growing in Canada

Distrust of Police Growing in Canada
No, it’s not the progressives. Many on the left are true cop-haters from the get go. A prime example of how the left detest police (unless they become victims of a crime and squeal like the cowards they are) occurred during the recent Ontario election campaign. Gurrant Singh, brother of federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, was a star candidate for the NDP. It was revealed he once carried a sign in a demonstration that read “F**K the POLICE.” Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath saw nothing wrong with that. Neither did the rest of her radical caucus.

Now the increased skepticism about the men and women in blue is coming from the right; those who traditionally support the police and law and order. A recent example of this occurred during and after the mass shooting on Toronto’s Danforth Avenue.


Securing Canada’s Border: What’s the Solution?

Securing Canada’s Border: What’s the Solution?
An Angus Reid poll released Friday shows about two thirds of Canadians feel the influx of illegal border crossers amounts to a crisis. These two thirds include people who voted NDP and Liberal in the 2015 general election. As the Liberal government is fond of noting, anyone who opposes these people walking into Canada from the United States is “alt right” and “un-Canadian.” Wonder how Liberal Party supporters who chuckle at conservatives being called names feel now. Time will tell. (Angus Reid Institute, Aug. 3)

The government’s position has been to spend money on housing and feeding these people who are called by the Liberals and their sycophants in the media as “irregular border crossers.” Some even prefer the term “refugees” although they are merely refugee claimants, a big difference.


The Danger in Thinking Premier Ford is a Buffoon

The Danger in Thinking Premier Ford is a Buffoon
When campaigning for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Party and then during the provincial election campaign, Ford spent a lot of time saying he was not Donald Trump. True, they are two different people. But politically speaking, the premier and his late brother Rob were Trump years before Trump was Trump.

Part of the problem with the left is it is not a question of disagreeing with politicians like Trump and Ford; they fail to understand them or their supporters. They are simply satisfied to call them names. The progressives laugh when these politicians promise to do something and then have a mental breakdown after they get elected and actually do it.


For Canadians, CNN is the Most Trusted Name in News

For Canadians, CNN is the Most Trusted Name in News
As it is in other places, most newsworthy events that take place in Canada are of little interest to those outside the country or even beyond the local area where the occurrence took place. There are exceptions of course; since his election in 2015, Justin Trudeau has received a lot of coverage in the international media. At first, these news outlets fawned over the little narcissist, portraying him as the new Obama. After his disastrous trip to India where he and his family spent most of their time changing their clothes, Trudeau became an international laughing stock.


After Two Weeks, Premier Ford’s Influence Felt Beyond Ontario

After Two Weeks, Premier Ford’s Influence Felt Beyond Ontario
On June 29, Douglas Robert Ford Jr. was sworn in as Ontario’s 26th premier. After 15 years of disastrous Liberal Party rule, Ford won a majority government based upon his promises to undo many of the terrible policies that saw the once mighty economic engine of Canada become a have-not province and an economic train wreck that saw many Ontarians forced to choose between heating and eating.

As people are these days, many voters were skeptical Ford would actually deliver on the promises he made during the election campaign. And so far the new premier has not disappointed. Ford and the PC Party have moved quickly to implement the new government’s agenda. So far the government has scrapped the controversial sex-ed curriculum and gotten rid of Hydro One’s “six million dollar man” and the company’s board of directors. In true Kathleen Wynne fashion, beleaguered Ontario taxpayers paid Mayo Schmidt, the CEO of Hydro One over six million dollars a year. This compares to the salary of the head of Hydro Quebec of $400,000 + per year. While saving on the exorbitant salary of the utility’s CEO was only symbolic it was a good omen of things to come.


Trudeau sets stage for possible early election

Trudeau sets stage for possible early election
Canada’s next federal election is scheduled to be held on Oct. 21, 2019, approximately 15 months from now. But nothing in Canada’s fixed election scheme prevents the government from going to the polls early. And late last week, it appears the Liberals are taking measures that cannot rule out an early election, possibly late summer or early fall.

As CTV and other media outlets reported late last week, beginning this week there will be a flurry of activity in all ridings throughout Canada. Nominations of Liberal candidates will begin on Wednesday, a sure indication the Liberals are preparing for a possible early election. (CTV, June 22)

CBC Writer Threatens Trump’s 4-Year-Old Granddaughter
Conventional wisdom dictates anything a Canadian can do an American can do better. Not always the case. After Peter Fonda posted a tweet saying 12-year-old Barron Trump should be ripped from his mother’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation comedy writer did the 78-year-old over-the-hill actor one better. If Fonda thought it was cool to threaten a 12-year-old, Patrick Dussault took to Twitter and directed his threats to Chloe, Donald Trump Jr.’s four-year-old daughter.

Toronto Mayor Praises De Niro for ‘F**K Trump’ Rant
Actor Robert De Niro was in Toronto Monday in front of what will become his Nobu Restaurant, Hotel and Residences in the city’s trendy Entertainment District. De Niro’s visit comes one day after the actor’s rant at the Tony Awards where he said, “First I want to say, F**k Trump. It’s no longer ‘down with Trump, it’s f**k Trump.’” (CTV News, June 11)

Yesterday, Toronto Mayor John Tory tweeted “I have two words for Robert De Niro during his stop in Toronto today; Thank you!”


The Role of the Police in Andrea Horwath’s Sanctuary Province

The Role of the Police in Andrea Horwath’s Sanctuary Province
As the Ontario election campaign enters its final two weeks, the PCs are dropping in support while that of the NDP is increasing. The majority of new support for the socialists comes from Liberal voters realizing the almost certain death of their usual party of choice. Some polls predict the governing Liberals will end up losing official party status.

The NDP platform, entitled “It’s about change. It’s about you,” is a 42-page document. One section is about making life easier for immigrants to the province. It ends with a line, “We will declare Ontario a Sanctuary Province.” (NDP Platform, pg. 11)


The Humboldt bus crash, white privilege and the media

The Humboldt bus crash, white privilege and the media
It was a horrific incident that made news around the world. Last Friday a bus carrying members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team crashed with a tractor trailer at the intersection of two Saskatchewan highways. Currently the death toll stands at 16; the female trainer, the coach of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team, two members of the media travelling to cover the playoff game and 12 young players.


What did Kathleen Wynne mean by ‘old white people’?

What did Kathleen Wynne mean by ‘old white people’?
Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne seems to be in panic mode these days. She and her Liberal Party are low in the polls, occasionally dipping into “Elvis territory.” In other words the percentage of people willing to support the Liberals is about the same as those who think the King of Rock and Roll is still alive.

The election of Doug Ford as leader of the opposition PC Party seems to have driven Wynne further into a frenzy. When that happens to politicians they sometimes do the unfathomable—they blurt out the truth. Ford made it clear if he forms the government the PCs will do away with the carbon tax currently in the party’s platform. This led Wynne to say 40,000 government jobs will be lost without the revenue from the tax. Wynne admitted what we all know; the carbon tax has absolutely nothing to do with reducing carbon emissions and climate change. It is just a cash grab to fund, among other things, Ontario’s bloated civil service.


Doug Ford should not be quick to reject Trump comparison

Doug Ford should not be quick to reject Trump comparison
Since winning the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party a week ago, former Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford has been compared to Donald Trump. And not in a good way. But as polls taken since his victory indicate, a significant number of Ontarians do not like him but will vote for him anyway in order to get rid of Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals.

Ford has been asked about similarities between himself and the American president and Ford denied they are alike. The PC leader says these Trump comparisons are something made up by the media. But there are similarities between Ford and the American president and Ford should not be running away from them. After all, Trump did win.


Trudeau’s opportunity to welcome Islamic terrorist back to Canada

Trudeau’s opportunity to welcome Islamic terrorist back to Canada
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has not had an easy time lately. There was his disastrous trip to India that saw a convicted Sikh terrorist invited to dinner at the Canadian High Commission. Trudeau constantly changing his Indian clothing and then posing for pictures with his family not only drew chuckles from Indians but made Canada a laughingstock around the world. To illustrate how bad this really was, the Toronto Star, a left wing Liberal-loving newspaper, described the Boy Blunder’s visit as the worst foray into India since the Mongols in the 13th century.

Last week the Trudeau government brought down a budget that has no plans to reduce the deficit that has ballooned since the Liberals came into power. The budget was primarily focused on gender equality and other social justice issues that, if not so serious, would be as funny as the multitude of costumes he and his princess wife wore in India. While Trudeau, the feminist, has no concern about what happens to women in Muslim countries, his government is of the opinion all Canadian women are victims and must be treated as such.


Can the Conservatives take advantage of Trudeau’s ‘Bengal Blunders?’

Feb 27, 2018 — Arthur Weinreb

Can the Conservatives take advantage of Trudeau’s ‘Bengal Blunders?’
You have to give Justin Trudeau credit for one thing. His eight day trip to India made the Ontario PC leadership race where Patrick Brown is running to replace himself after he may or may not have resigned look downright boring. While the international media has lately made fun of Canada’s poor excuse for a leader, his trip to India made not only him, but Canada a laughingstock throughout the world.

It was bad enough Trudeau interrupted a woman asking a question by telling her we do not say “mankind,” we say “peoplekind.” That silliness made news around the world but paled in comparison to the international condemnation of the Canadian prime minister’s trip to India.

Trudeau: People who are cynical about institutions are ‘lazy’
By now everyone in the English-speaking world knows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is spending a week in India. As has been the case lately, Trudeau is being mocked around the world. Accompanying him on his tax-payer funded junket are his wife, this three children, six cabinet ministers and a slew of others.

Despite statements to the contrary, Trudeau is being snubbed by the government of India. When he and his entourage landed in Delhi, they were greeted by a junior minister of agriculture. The minister was all dressed up for the occasion, wearing what appears to be blue jeans and a windbreaker.

Piers Morgan: Canada’s Leader of the Unofficial Opposition

As the entire English-speaking world knows by now, Canada’s prime minister recently made a fool of himself by correcting a woman’s grammar. At one of his town hall meetings, designed to bolster Trudeau’s sagging popularity, a woman asked him a long convoluted question. When the woman said the word “mankind,” Trudeau rudely interrupted her and said we don’t say “mankind,” we say “peoplekind.” At least the PM said “we” instead of “Canadians.” Who the “we” is will undoubtedly remain one of life’s mysteries.

The news of Trudeau’s silly political correctness went around the word with a great deal of coverage in the U.S. and the U.K. It was all critical of our beloved Sock Boy although some in the left wing media pointed out it was only those who are “right wing” who were critical of Trudeau.

Trudeau compares ISIS fighters to Greek, Italian, Portuguese immigrants
This was bad. Even for him.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held one of his town hall meetings. The PM is currently crisscrossing the country in an attempt to bolster his sinking popularity. While many things coming out of the mouth of the most unqualified prime minister in history are bad, this comment was particularly disgusting.

The role of the media in the demise of Patrick Brown

The role of the media in the demise of Patrick Brown
Of all the blame dished out surrounding the resignation of Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown, the media seems to be getting a pass in their role in the scandal that rocked the party.

Wednesday night, Brown spoke at a hastily called press conference. He had been contacted by CTV News about two hours before. He was told the network was airing a story later that night alleging he engaged in sexual misconduct with two young women years before and given the opportunity to speak to these allegations.

Brown, almost in tears, vigorously denied these allegations, said he has contacted his attorneys and will fight to clear his name. He made no mention of stepping down as leader. The Ontario election is scheduled to be held on June 7 of this year.
