Good morning everyone. David thanks for the link. I'll try and get to it this evening. I believe the forecast was back to cool this morning. I can almost guarantee rain, snow or damn cold as I have a load of cherry lumber coming in from Toronto today. Oh! well just dress a lot warmer. Enjoyed lunch yesterday fellows and nice to run into Dutch Touch too. Have a great day all.

So Justin Trudeau is suddenly experiencing what it's like to be a real politician with the media.
He dodged a follow-up question the other day about why he initially defended Harb’s expense claims and whether his office verified Harb’s claims.
It was more than obvious the shiny pony didn't like these kind of questions...
He also didn't respond how his senator trick will look if any of the other Liberal Senators get charged.
BIG BROTHER 2/6/2014 8:35:23 AM Report

No Senator trick. Just honesty!! Trudeau didn't appoint Harb and no leader should be covering for any Senator.

Harper should follow suit, but it's not his style (as if he has any). Control freak is his style.

learningaswego 2/6/2014 9:37:14 AM Report

I think watching the usual "political pundits" on CTV the other night just about says it all about the anti-Harper crusade in most of the media.

When referring to the Prime Minister of Canada, they simply said "Harper", and with a noticeable sneer. Not PM Harper, not Stephen Harper, etc.

When they talked about the leader of the Liberal Party, they lovingly referred to him as "Justin". Not Trudeau, not Justin Trudeau....but "Justin" as if they were all best buds.

That, I thought, just about said it all.

Easy to see what the media will be doing as far as their objectivity for the next election.
fatafr 2/6/2014 9:50:39 AM Report

Someone sent this to me. I thought I'd share it with you.

Someone please tell me what is wrong with all the people that run this country!!!

CONSERVATIVES & LIBERALS, say "We're "broke" and can't help our own
Seniors,
Veterans,
Orphans,
Homeless,
Etc.,???

In the last few years we have provided direct cash aid to:
Hamas - 351 M,
Pakistan- 2 B,
Libya 1.45 B,
Egypt- 397 M,
Mexico- 622 M,
Russia- 380 M,
Haiti- 1.4 B,
Jordan- 463 M,
Kenya- 816 M,
Sudan- 870 M,
Nigeria- 456 M,
Uganda- 451 M,
Congo- 359 M,
Ethiopia- 981 M,
South Afrika- 566 M,
Senegal- 698 M,
Mozambique- 404 M,
Zambia- 331 M,
Kazakhstan- 304 M,
Iraq- 1.08 B,
Tanzania- 554 M,

With literally Billions and they still hate us! In total Canada spends over 5 Billion a year on direct cash support of foreign aid, and 20 Billion on Immigration & Refugee programs
Our retired seniors are living on a 'fixed income'. Do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions and tons of food to foreign countries!

We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

AUSTRALIA, UK, THE USA & CANADA - countries where we have homeless person, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without treatment... Etc.

YET- We still allow illegals & other free loaders on our shores, while we are lining up with food, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies for them.
Imagine if the "GOVERNMENT" gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?

rw: yes, young Trudeau is gaining experience as a politician, with the media, and is learning how to dodge questions.

I once had occasion to spend a lot of time with John Snobelen, former Tory provincial cabinet minister, and he was a master at this. He explained that politicians had to be in delivering in public the 'non sequitur' of responses, and to be able to do so while smiling mockingly at the questioner.

That being said, Trudeau may be learning, but he has a long way to go before he becomes as deft at dodging questions as Harper.

learningaswego: you must have missed the CTV coverage of the last Federal election. If the Liberals were leading in a riding by a few votes it was "a massive lead over the Conservative Party"; if the Liberals were being crushed the riding was "up for grabs and too close to call". It was fun to watch Craig Oliver and the rest of the hacks try to sway the vote in favour of the Libs. When it was all over and the Conservatives were declared the winners poor old Oliver almost had a seizure and fell off his chair.

Except when you lefties hate on Harper, you fail to realize that the person who is true right wing knows that Harper isn't that great. He's not bad, but by no means great. He's way better than his competition though, that's why he's going to get the vote next election. He also doesn't have a big mouth like both Mulcair and Trudeau Lite.

All Harper has to do is sit back and let the Liberal and NDP leaders open their mouths. That alone will lock in his victory.

The only reason that Justin Trudeau kicked the Liberal Senators out of caucus is because he's scared of what the senate audit is going to be. It doesn't matter who made them senators they are still Liberal Senators at the time of audit. Does Justin think that by doing this he can say "they are not Liberal Senators", they still call themselves Liberals except it's just a change of name.

If Trudeau's 'smooth move' had no effect, what is all the bashing for. Honesty really rubs against your grain eh??
Hunter101 2/6/2014 5:41:51 PM Report

BB, French Martin hasn't made an ounce of sense since he opened his mouth. The guy couldn't even decide if he was for or against the long gun registry after it was abolished.

Please, don't defend a moron.

And don't blame Harper for everything under the sun. He can't be responsible for every fart that gets let go in Ottawa.
BIG BROTHER 2/6/2014 5:49:29 PM Report

Hunter,
I'm not defending rw....you don't seem to grasp sarcasm.

I won't blame Harper for all the farts, but the rotten smell seems to be emanating from his office quite regularly. Gas masks are now issued to all visitors to the office.

I don't have to defend Trudeau. He has done and is doing most everything right....so far anyway.

I am not a day over seventy madam. I think. But I just cannot remember.
I had to endure the razz from Bobby over my yellow discount fleece top from Value Village until Grump admitted that he used to shop there until he strangled an obnoxious staffer for denying him a senior's discount.The man has some anger issues apparently.

Big Bro

Thank you.
It is reassuring to me when you state that I don't make an ounce of sense to you.
It validates that I am of sound mind, see things clearly and have great judgment.
Carry on pal.

rw If your wife ever finds out you are the head Red Neck of the Motley Crew, I suspect you will get straightened up tout suite. I was going to say that the Harper Gov't have finally got a decent piece of legislation ready to pass (maybe). The new Immigration bill has some good things in it, So my question is why in the hell did it take these law and order heroes so long to do something that is good for Canada and will save money and legal hassles?

lookaround 2/6/2014 7:23:17 PM Report

Through all the drivel and drool today I have come to the conclusion Harper is good, Trudeau is bad. Trudeau will spend us into a deficit and a deep deep debt. Trudeau or Justin Lite can't keep that cute face straight because he will lie to us and never tell the truth. Oh and even though the Law of Thermodynamics, can you all say T-H-E-R-M-O D-Y-N-A-M-I-C-S is a part of what the physical world is about green house gases and global warming are as fictional as me getting a tax break from Harper.

Oh wait I was dreaming and looking at the truth Harper is bad and he has spent us into a deficit and a BIG debt and he lied to us about transparency and what the hell do you think happens to the earth when carbon, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide etc is spewed out into the atmosphere??????

AND


Trudeau will be PM..a troll told me so

Nah.
I knew Harry's daughter Gelda.Actually in the biblical sense.
Anyway Gelda was a very healthy woman but when I insisted that she convert she thought it was to Ralph Lauren and I knew our relationship was going into the swamp.
You see the results.Plant a maroon you get a maroon.

lookaround, for a moment there girl you had me on the ropes. That said I had to know you were joking as you seem far too bright to be taken in by one or more of Harper's lies. If you would like to get an idea of how often he has lied just google "Harper's lies"
shakespeare 2/6/2014 7:34:31 PM Report

b. Fox
c. CTV

3. If you were given these three colours, which would you choose?
a. red
b. orange
c. blue

4. Are you

b. homosexual (not that there's anything wrong with it)
c. bi-sexual (that's O.K. too ... really!)

5. Do you believe that climate change is

a. part of a Liberal plot
b. a real worldwide issue
c. something that Canada can take a lead role in.

I think the reform to the immigration law is only to help people like Clement. Very suspicious, triple citizenship and he has changed his name from Antonikis Panayioristakis to Tony Clement.

Of course, they write the law to fit their needs.
lookaround 2/6/2014 8:25:39 PM Report

Hunter101 think think and remember if you took chemistry..college that is you perhaps would stop keyboard tapping and understand that all oxides form large particles with ozonating molecules, Now understand this: CO2 and methane gas( the swampers contribution,,yes you Hunter101) are transparent to short wave radiation (UV-ultra violet) from the Sun (you know that sunburn) BUT absorb the longer wavelengths (infrared--heat from your stove) that is emitted from the earth. Absorb this for a moment........no pun intended.......okay then whew burning carbon or FOSSIL FUELS produces CO2 -(carbon dioxide) that is one carbon and two oxygens. Take your time. Breathe slowly. Let's continue. Slowly, Okay continuing now..this CO2 forms a layer because it is a particulate (ever have your emissions test?), Now that long wavelength (infra-red) or heat energy cannot escape the atmosphere. That heat becomes trapped and thus warming the earth, Whew. I hope that clears the fog between the ears.

I tried to simplify my science class for you. There are many more factors which are far and foremost too drawn-out for the scope of said intellectuals.

Hunter101 one word of advice I am not a moron. Got that. Good. But you are trying,,no wait wait,,let me rephrase this as gently as WE all on here can, your attempt at being a moron has succeeded perfectly.
A gold star for you. Now carry on.
mallet 2/6/2014 8:55:01 PM Report

Lookaround...

I love your explaination, of how CO2 causes global warming and the experts today say it is man made. Now if I am to accept that as pure fact, how do we (i really mean you) explain the lush artic area roamed over by wooly mammoths before the last ice age. Who or what caused the last ice age to form. It could not have been man made, nor could the conditions before it. Could it have been natural warming and cooling?? All the woolies passing gas (methane)?? I do not know, I will accept that there is some climate change, I just have certain reservations when people start to make a lot of noise and then money beating some drums. I would ask you also, the MNR lets large areas of forest burn, the official wording is "Observing" when it poses no danger to life or property, but does the smoke not pollute?

I'd also love for lookaround to explain volcanic activity and the fact that one eruption releases about ten years worth of C02.
Well he's at it can he also explain how vapour is the NUMBER ONE cause of a greenhouse affect.
