John Doyle Cares Deeply About Viewpoints: His And His Fellow liberals’.

Like me, the Globe and Mail's John Doyle is an opinion writer. Most opinion writers have particular views, and they're paid to express them, even if, as in Doyle's case, it's just about his...

Who Lobbies Whom?

SNC-Lavalin hired the former Clerk of Privy Council as their Chairman, who then lobbied the current Clerk Michael Wernick to get them out of criminal prosecution? Really? The current clerk's testimony this past week included...

CTV’s Nasty, Biased, Total BS Headline

It makes all the media look stupid. What a cynical — and totally misleading, on purpose — bit of reporting today by the liberals' CTV division, on U.S. politics. Today they've been reporting on...

What I said.

I said it first. Here. Big government and its proponents are enabling the corruption of our democracy. https://twitter.com/MaximeBernier/status/1104047580697317377  

Stunning tweet by civil servants

This is a stunning tweet. https://twitter.com/PPSC_SPPC/status/1103679348689776640 The fact that they felt the need to assert themselves in this way speaks volumes about the extent to which they feel their independence was indeed put at risk due...

Hey Trudeau, maybe just give the west the finger.

I hear the PM will be giving a special live televised speech tomorrow to address the latest Liberal corruption scandal. The news networks are emploring everyone to watch it live. It will be held...

“Justice” confused with “Libs Winning”

Justice Committee hearings Both sides do it. Let's get that straight. And it's repugnant. The Conservatives and NDP are asking questions of the witnesses designed to get to the bottom of the matter. It's not their...

Yeah… check Butts’ Twitter account….

The Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick — who is increasingly appears throughout these hearings to be extremely elitist and self-involved, to say nothing of being somewhat paranoid and conspiratorial — claims social media is...

Green May easily turn red.

Justice committee hearings Greenie Elizabeth May asks critical questions along with the NDP and Conservatives (unlike the Liberals for the most part), but I'd bet if the reason Trudeau and Butts (et al) had given...

“Jobs” you say.

Justice committee hearings Gerald Butts implied that 9000 jobs lost SNC-Lavalin in Montreal would be like all the mines closing in Cape Breton. Yeah, no. That's stupidtalk. Oh and also, don't Liberals actually want...

It’s All About “Giving Back.”

Part Two It's funny how so much of this Liberal SNC-Lavalin scandal is about "giving back." Liberals giving back to supporters. But picking up where we left off: since we've so quickly and easily identified...

LIBERALS. That’s The Root Cause Of The Liberal/SNC-Lavalin Scandal.

I remember Justin Trudeau once wondering — in that annoyingly breathy, wistful, and airy way of his — about "root causes," before deciding on the correct stance on a particular matter of...

Beware the Liberal (and their media) obfuscation and diversion re Trudeau-Gate & SNC-Lavalin

We should call this "Liberal Media Spin-Gate." From the very first day, the Liberals' media was in Liberal defence mode, calling this scandal (which you would not...

Ménage à Trois – A Story Of Canadian Failure

It's like a weird ugly teat-sucking government ménage à trois (if you folks outside of Quebec -- which is apparently nobody -- will pardon my French). There is...

Liberals Secretly Plant Op-Eds In Newspapers? Well That’s Not Very Transparent.

And we thought it was just that the media is so liberal-left biased, and that's why there are so many liberal-left columnists and sundry other op-eds. What if it's actually that the...
