Luckily, saying nasty things about Canada doesn't disqualify a person from being Prime Minister.
Is anyone reading this article? Foreign Policy Cred is not an asset or relevant for the Orillia School board, it ought to be for a candidate for Prime Minister.
Point successfully missed. Well done...enjoy your double double.
To borrow from an old expression, "if your Aunt had balls, she'd be your uncle".
Or Alberta separation. Or (once upon a time) Toronto separation.
Or in the US Texas separation. Or California separation.
Agreed, it's the million dollar question! Or perhaps $55 billlion question. Hidden agenda or no? Change of course or no?
I've always wondered how that was a relevant part of the discussion. Replace Quebec with Alberta...how does that change the numbers? How does it change the relevancy of the comment?
I don't agree with this assessment for lots of reasons. The primary one, though, is that the Conservatives have been governing from the Centre for their entire time in office. There were lots of reasons the Liberals couldn't move the Conservatives (leadership, on the ground organization etc.), but one of them is because the Conservatives have been governing like centrist Liberals since day 1.
In my opinion, that's still the sweet spot in Canadian politics. If the Conservative move right with a majority, the Liberals will have space in the centre. If they don't...than Conservatives have permanently become Liberals and the Liberal party is likely dead until it merges with the NDP.
No, vote splitting didn't cause a Conservative majority. The people's election of a Conservative candidate in 167 ridings did.
Yes, vote splitting caused a Conservative majority. If the Liberals and NDP had been combined as a single party - even in Ontario only - a Conservative majority would've been thwarted.
The statements above are (likely) both true. Neither captures the rather significant nuances present in this election or the Canadian political landscape. It's a bit tough to find nuance in the Globe's political reporting these days.
It's OK for him to post one word on another topic before he gets to the election - I suspect he needs more than a single word : )
