And on the spin doctor side...Is Justin Trudeau's profanity a slip or a strategy?

Spin to win?

The Liberal leader's office staff say Trudeau's use of some choice words was not scripted, though they also hint he might cut loose again at the press gallery dinner in May.

Stephen Carter, a political strategist who managed Naheed Nenshi's successful mayoralty campaign in Calgary, thinks the swear words were carefully timed.

"If this isn't managed, it appears to be managed … he's doing a pretty good job, the team is doing a pretty good job," Carter said, in a telephone interview.

Good morning David, Irish and everyone. Good luck at the vets Irish. Sorry I called you a moron my little Florida rutabaga, the Morons Union are citing me for insulting them. Too late as everyone on here knows what you are. This bully business is getting tough. I have had to start working out lately as I am not getting enough exercise just kicking butt and picking on pets, little children, old folks and the odd despicable moron. It's sad what one has to do for a living these days. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning all.

RIP M. Rooney. 93 years young. A long life for a short man.

An animal runs, struggles and howls in protest as its life is taken. To see this action watch Animal Planet.
The same thing happens when an idea dies.To see this action,watch Premier Wynne as she struggles to survive.

bounder...Quebec election today
Bobby Nerves 4/7/2014 7:46:55 AM Report

The liberals will sweep Quebec taking 40% + or -, from the 60% of voters that will exercise their choice.

Reality: The 20% of the population decide how the Province should be administered. Total majority.

Sadly for Quebec, where the word omerta is weighed in gold, manila envelopes with cash and blood.
bounder 4/7/2014 7:54:50 AM Report

Yes election day in Quebec is one of the nastiest in recent memory, to bad we found out here in Ontario after the election.
Mr. Poster 4/7/2014 8:05:00 AM Report

Bring on the ONTARIO election !!!! Any word on who the CONS will run as a candidate in this city ? Perhaps another candidate parachuted in?

BIG BROTHER 4/7/2014 12:44:13 PM Report

This sure explains a few things...
irishfey 4/7/2014 2:20:09 PM Report

Message in the Red Room about my pal.. all is good!.... Yes it"s sad about Mickey Rooney... One does not measure a Man by his height!! But some " small" men are small in brains and use ignorance and crudeness to make them feel tall and important. A post in the Red Room ( that makes no sense) proves that!
bounder 4/7/2014 2:48:21 PM Report

Irish you're on fire,go girl go.
I think he was expelled but I maybe wrong,anyways maybe he just dumbed down.

Grump 4/7/2014 4:22:01 PM Report

Good afternoon all, Wicket, request sent and shouldn't be a problem. Bounder do you have a man crush on me or are you just a run of the mill dumb a** ****? While we are at it please use too when you mean also, not to. I also checked the posts and can't find anyone that asked for your opinion Therefor just where did you get the idea you were bright enough or that anyone would give a furry rat's butt about your constant whiny posts.
Grump 4/7/2014 4:29:46 PM Report

Big Brother, great post and certainly shows how far these cons. are from reality or someone has a much better sense of humour than they do.
bounder 4/7/2014 4:45:44 PM Report

Oh Grumpy before you correct me,(therefor)in your previous post, I stand as unabbreviated ,you are so out of touch with reality dumbass.
Bobby Nerves 4/7/2014 4:54:18 PM Report

bounder, with all due respect, can you say yes or not if you are referring to me in your message of 2:48:22?
bounder 4/7/2014 5:00:41 PM Report

BN no , you know who,no problem with what you post, hey good to go.Don't need my approval.
Bobby Nerves 4/7/2014 5:08:23 PM Report

bounder, I'm sorry, I don't know whom you referring to, but if it's not me, no problems, I'm no interested in who are you pointing.
Grump 4/7/2014 5:23:03 PM Report

Carefull Bobby, Bounder is a well versed and I believe he just B.S.ed you.
bounder 4/7/2014 5:29:21 PM Report

Grump' ooohhhhhh you just proved my theory, dumb bunny. Meant dumb ass.
BIG BROTHER 4/7/2014 6:20:33 PM Report

Another great job creation program, brought to Canada by our beloved Cons....

'McDonald’s confirmed the three Victoria locations have 26 temporary foreign workers on staff.' CBC News

This while Canadians can't get hired at these same locations. It's a race for the bottom folks. This group (Mickey Dees) can't export the jobs, because they depend on well paid Canadians to patronize their business', so the next best thing is to import slave labour.
lookaround 4/7/2014 6:49:02 PM Report

No worry Big Brother according to opinion and I mean majority opinion Harper is fast tracking to being a "has been". Bring on the election. Now

The latest in the search of flight MH370.
Grump 4/7/2014 7:09:21 PM Report

Wicket ,all is good to go on both fronts.
Wild Turkey 4/7/2014 7:11:06 PM Report

B.B.---It appears to me that the franchise owners were hiring relatives to try and jump the immigration lines.McDonalds has since "distanced"themselves from this particular franchisee.
Nepotism rears it's ugly head.
Just Curious 4/7/2014 7:30:14 PM Report

Just clicking on some stuff and I understand George Strait won Entertainer of the year award.. He is one of, if not my all time favorite country singer. As far as I am concerned his biggest tribute came from Garth Brooks at Garth's last show in Vegas. Garth said he had to jump thru hoops and smoke and lights to perform.. George Strait just walked on stage and said "Hello, I'm George Strait"..And that is so true...
right wing 4/7/2014 8:03:19 PM Report


We were cheering for George as well.
The CMA are the most entertaining of all of those award shows IMO.
Not as much of that snobbish crap, celebrities they are but also just down to earth people...some folks call them "rednecks".
Glad to see Miranda Lambert take some awards as well.
Wicket 4/7/2014 8:10:50 PM Report

Thanks Grump...
cathyh 4/7/2014 8:21:48 PM Report

I think the McDonald franchise in B.C. that hires foreign workers, some not even in Canada yet, over well educated and trained Canadian workers, should see a well organized Canadian boycott of their establishment, eh.
Bobby Nerves 4/7/2014 8:45:10 PM Report

Liberals take early substantial lead in Quebec election.

Words to go for: Early and substantial. With time, it could be: DOA
