Joe Oliver for leader? Alas no. But heed to his leadership.

Financial Post — Joe Oliver penned a good column today offering good conservative sense for Conservatives. So that's something different and worthwhile for you to read today in the papers increasingly filled with total bunk and muck — usually from lefties — about how the Conservatives need to go still further leftward to win. It's headlined "Conservatives must persuade the electorate, not pander to the left." And it's worth your read.

"...There is an economic and cultural route to broaden the appeal of Conservative values and policies: bring the public to you, rather than mimic the left-wing’s latest faddish ideals and retreaded socialist truths. That is what leadership is all about. ..."

Ronald Reagan believed in and practiced this philosophy very effectively, making wonderful speaches counseling his fellow conservatives to speak up — "in bold colors" — to convince the electorate to vote for the values — conservative values — which most of their fellow electorate actually already believed in. And he was one of the best and most popular presidents in US history. Joe Oliver wrote today about some of those Canadian conservative values, which, similarly, are actually Canadian values.
Joe Oliver isn't running to be the leader. He's 81 and is rightly enjoying retirement. But anybody who wants to follow in Ronald Regan's — or Joe Oliver's — footsteps is more than welcome to step up at this time, please.

Lefty Mayor caught maskless but it’s ok: “I was feelin’ the spirit!”

National Review — Another article you won't read in 99% of the "news" media because, oh do I even have to say it?... she's a lefty mayor! (and we can well imagine the "news" media's faux outrage if she was a he and he was a Republican):

The mayor of San Francisco [London Breed] says that she shouldn’t be criticized for breaking her own COVID rules, because, and I quote, “I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.” CBS reports:

“We don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” said Breed during an interview to address the controversy.

The city’s health order states attendees at live indoor performances must remain masked except when actively eating or drinking. Breed maintained that she was drinking at the time.

“My drink was sitting at the table,” said Breed. “I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.”
As Charles C.W. Cooke points out, the hideousness doesn't stop just at her hypocrisy, her failure to take responsibility for her own actions, or her elitist rule-breaking, it's the fact that she laments the notion of "the fun police," when, in fact, as mayor and as the perpetrator of these asinine rules, she IS "the fun police."

Best post-election headline so far

Wall Street Journal — They get the headline just about right: Their opener:

The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher counseled that in politics “standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous. You get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” That’s the lesson delivered to Canada’s Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole in Monday’s national election.

I like that they added this because Canadian "news" media are loathed to mention it:

Yet while they again won the popular vote, they finished a distant second in seat count with about 119, two seats down from 2019. (By the way, the Tories have won the popular vote in five of the last six elections, which is a lesson for Americans who think this only happens because of the Electoral College.)

They see what I see. O'Toole: Speaking in pale pastels — largely pink — instead of bold colors. Lesson #596 for the Conservative Party of Canada. They'll learn someday. Maybe.

BC’s NDP gov and their “news” media divisions hiding stats and facts? Here’s one. For all the noise from the Canadian national "news" media, you'd think Ontario was the only province in the country, and that it's doing terribly with regard to the Wuhan Virus (which everybody still calls "COVID" on orders from the Communist Party of China). That's not news to anyone outside of Ontario. What might be news to people both outside and inside of Ontario is that BC's rate of death is nearly twice that of Ontario.
Don't worry lefties, even people in BC don't know that, because the "news" media in BC are actually cheerleaders for the NDP government of BC — much as the national news media is actually a division of the federal Liberal Party (well and the Ontario Liberal Party of course). Ontario is led by a party with the word "Conservative" in it, even though "Progressive" is the first and foremost word and concept in their party name and style of governance. But, you know, it's just deathn shit. Politics is way more important to the "news" media.
Facts. Get 'em anywhere you can, because you can't reliably get them from the "news" media.

Canada Excluded From International China Security Pact

Globe and Mail Dismissed by Justin Trudeau as merely a crass American salesman's move to pawn off the latest high-tech US-built nuclear subs to what we have to therefore assume he thinks are the total idiot Aussies, the three-nation deal didn't even include Canada in the talks leading up to the historic pact. And after Trudeau's comments on the matter (and the aforementioned attitude toward the Aussies), you can understand why.
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday played down Canada’s exclusion from the Indo-Pacific security deal, saying it is merely a way for the U.S. to sell nuclear submarines to Australia ... “This is a deal for nuclear submarines, which Canada is not currently or any time soon in the market for. Australia is.”"
In a clear indication that even Trudeau's political bro Joe Biden doesn't actually take him or Canada seriously anymore (forcing one to wonder if his high-fivin' bro Barack Obama doesn't also come off as a bit two-faced after Obama gave Trudeau a campaign "endorsement" this week), even Canadian officials were left in the dark. Almost like Canada can't even be trusted anymore on any level.

"Three officials, representing Canada’s foreign affairs, intelligence and defence departments, told The Globe and Mail that Ottawa was not consulted about the pact, and had no idea the trilateral security announcement was coming until it was made on Wednesday by U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison."

Trudeau, in contrast, delayed Canada's Wuhan Virus immunization program by signing a deal not with the Americans or Brits, but with... CHINA, for vaccines, in what turned out to be a total failure with countless Canadian lives lost as a result. What is going on here?

The Article

You know how they say it’s the coverup, rather than the crime, that get politicians into trouble? Here’s a twist on that.

NDP MP Megan Leslie allowed her official NDP web page’s events calendar to be used for a promotion for a 9/11 truther event. If you can stomach it, cast aside the repugnance of the 9/11 truther conspiracy idiocy, and even the fact that a sitting MP would allow that kind of promotion on her official NDP web site. And even try to tolerate the fact that she has decided to keep that promotion in place, even after she’s been made aware of it. Try to forget all the 9/11 victims and their families, and all the soldiers who fought terrorists in Afghanistan and were killed or maimed (and to that last point, I still wear red on Fridays).

Megan_Leslie MP NDP 2014-03-28_event-detail

In this case, it’s not the crime  —  I don’t have a clue if Megan Leslie is a 9/11 truther or not  —  nor her making the patently stupid mistake of allowing 9/11 truthers to promote that disgracefully insulting and insensitive nonsense on her official NDP web site; and then leaving it there seemingly to prove her arrogance and stupidity.  It’s her response that irks me.

Here’s a Canadian NDP MP’s defense of herself after allowing her taxpayer-subsidized NDP web site’s events calendar be used to drum-up support for a 9/11 truther event, and being called on it (with my highlighting):

Megan Leslie
meganleslie_webHi Facebook friends,

Yesterday I got attacked by a Conservative MP for my events calendar on my website. If you’ve seen it, you’ll know that it is full of all kinds of events from the community. This MP raised the fact that there is a 9/11 Truther event on the site. Partisan trolls on Twitter got all excited, and all of a sudden, it was a story.

I keep this aspect of my site as a service to the community. I’m proud of how many people use it, and the way it supports our community. I won’t post anything that is illegal, and I won’t post events about hate, but otherwise, I don’t judge what goes up. If there were a climate denier rally or an anti-choice talk, I would post them. I have a process for dealing with complaints from the community. There is also a disclaimer on the site saying they events may not reflect my views or the views of the NDP.

What do you think? Where is the line? I’ve been accused of showing poor judgement, and damaging my good name by associating with groups like this. But I don’t just represent people I agree with. Would you judge the posts? Would you not post at all? I’d be interested in hearing what you would do.

Condescending much?

First, if you are concerned by this and call her on it, you’re “attacking” her and you are a “partisan troll.” But you gotta love how Megan Leslie, MP, puts “climate deniers” and “anti-choice” people (using purposely derogatory terms) in with the same lot as megan leslie_partisan-trolls9/11 truthers. She will now also put me in the “attacker” camp along with the other “trolls,” as she calls people who criticize her, in addition to the “climate denier” camp, and the “anti-choice” slot.

But don’t worry, she’s not “partisan.” And she doesn’t “judge.”

She has quite the mentality for a Member of Parliament. People who don’t agree with her free abortion stance, and her “man-made global megan leslie_i-dont-judgewarming” theories, are cast as the ills of society akin to the disgraceful 9/11 truthers, and marked by her with her derogatory, bromidic labels. Yet she “represents” you and all, she says.

You and all definitely pay her salary. This is a Canadian MP calling other Canadians who pay her exorbitant $160,200.00++ salary, “trolls,” and who attempts to reduce earnest ideological opponents into tendentious categories of supposed shame: “climate deniers,” and “anti-choice.”

She makes the passive-aggressive claim that in order to be absolutely fair, and balanced, and open, and “I don’t judge,” she allows event postings by radicals like 9/11 truthers  —  because she also represents people she doesn’t agree with.  Like “deniers” and those “anti-choice” dictators, I presume.

This is all emblematic of the inconsistent application of principles, and the peculiar hypocritical style of “tolerance” that is the left and far-left, particularly the far-left NDP.

She as an MP thinks a 9/11 truther event is a “service to the community?” Apparently she’s utterly tone-deaf and incapable of perspective. Or she really advocates it. I cannot begin to explain how someone who pretends to be full of compassion has absolutely no comprehension of how insulting and disrespectful that kind of thing is, to so many people, particularly those involved  —  which include many Canadians. And there is no rationalizing how she thinks it is appropriate to lump those 9/11 truthers in with good, honest people who have studied the climate science and simply don’t agree with the failing theories of “man-made global warming;” and lump those 9/11 nutters in with those who are simply pro-life and against free, limitless abortions.

Yeah. And yet, we’re the “trolls.”
