Angry Tom suffers no fools
And one doesn't know about the holocaust and two more are 9-11 consirisy believers... Does no one screen their candidates any more? Hide Gordo....hide😆
Fortunately the NDP candidate in this riding is beyond reproach.
Vote Gord Johns . STOP HARPER
Vote John Duncan. STOP GORD JOHNS
The CBC Poll Tracker now gives the Conservatives a small lead in the polls, with 31.3 per cent support against 30.3 per cent for the Liberals and 28.9 per cent for the New Democrats. This marks the high-water mark for the Tories so far in this campaign and the lowest average score for the NDP since the end of May.
A Hamilton school trustee running in the federal election for the New Democrats has apologized for making a crude reference related to Auschwitz, reportedly saying she had no idea that it was a notorious Nazi death camp.This NDP halfwit is allowed to stay on as a candidate after making sex jokes about a death camp.
While Canadian party leaders prepared for the French language debate on Thursday and carefully calibrated their niqab messaging, Pope Francis met with President Obama, supped with the homeless, and addressed the U.S. Congress in Washington.Urging legislators to act boldly on climate change, refugees and inequality, he said, "You are called to defend and preserve the dignity of your fellow citizens in the tireless pursuit of the common good. For this is the chief aim of all politics.”With that, the Pope departed for New York, preparing to speak Friday at the largest gathering of global heads of state ever assembled at the U.N. And probably in history.President Xi Jinping arrived in Washington on the Pope's heels to announce China’s commitment to cap carbon emissions and price greenhouse gas emissions. Two months in advance of the upcoming Paris climate summit, the world’s largest carbon emitters are taking action.Canada is not there.In the capitals of Europe, leaders strain mightily to cope with a humanitarian crisis of unimaginable magnitude as one of the largest refugee migrations in human history pours onto its shores, while Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt somehow absorb 4 million more of the displaced.Canada's role is insignificant.Meanwhile in Montreal, during the Thursday’s debate, federal party leaders feuded bitterly about what a handful of minority women can put on their heads at citizenship ceremonies. This took all of five minutes of the debate, but was the main event. Later, media pundits ranked the confidence and inspiration value of their performances, as well as the importance of the niqab to voters. Which apparently is high.Countless hours and days will now be spent by Canadian media dissecting the influence of the niqab debate on the outcome of Canada's federal election.Of course the truth is that nobody cared a fig about citizenship ceremonies until some focus-group maestro stumbled over a perfect race nugget to burnish into the finest political gold. This whole affair is coldly calculated by the Conservatives as a divisive emotional flashpoint that manipulates the national media into weeks of coverage.Well played.And so it came to pass that, while world leaders gather to address the most serious issues facing humanity, the Prime Minister of Canada's priority is Muslim headgear. This from a man who, until mere weeks ago, apparently hadn't a clue what his chief of staff and principal secretary did with their time. Or cheque-books.At least now Canadians have something to distract them from any pangs of conscience over that poor little boy on the beach. Whatever his name was. Anyway, we're over that.Welcome to the little leagues, Canada. You'll fit right in.
I'm glad that Canada is not there with the Pope, Obama and President Xi Jinping.The Pope is still campaigning against same sex marriage, Obama is still ordering summary execution by drone strikes and what's not to like about China ?Ask anyone who went to Residential School in this area about the dignity of the Catholic church. Feel free to move to China, USA or the Vatican anytime.
With all its faults ,I'll still take Canada over China,the USA and the Catholic Church.Harper looks like a progressive lefty compared to these brutal regimes.
I support capital punishment .I support the harvesting of organs from political prisoners.I support the intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan. I support drone strikes and collateral damage. I support the fight against birth control and gay rights .
Vote Trudeau ! He loves China !
Yep, you're all correct. It's a good thing that Canada isn't doing our fair share in finding a solution to climate change and control of greenhouse gasses, it's a good thing that we're not pitching in to assist the huge refugee crisis in Europe, it's a good thing that our head of state isn't present at the largest gathering of his counterparts in history, and it's a good thing that the government of Canada has instead chosen to become a part of a military solution to a political problem in a foreign country. Rather than address our own possible shortcomings and look for other solutions to the major issues facing the modern world, it's very helpful to point out that other groups and nations are "not as good as us", and continue on the downhill slope that we're on, always keeping out a sharp eye for someone to blame, someone to hate. Let's all keep pointing fingers elsewhere, instead of trying to work with the rest of the world and maybe, just maybe, fix something. (Did you ever notice that when you're pointing your finger at someone else, that your other three fingers are pointing back at you?) ......It would probably be a good thing to see Harper re-elected: You all deserve him.
Canada could be doing more to assist with refugees . We had room for 450,000 Temporary Foreign Workers . You may recall that it was the Liberals that kept us out of Iraq in the first place. What is your political solution to the Syrian/Iraq / ISIS conflict ? I agree that Canada doesn't need to be there .

What to do about ISIS? A good question.....I certainly don't know the answer. But, despite the fact that he's an internationally unpopular figure, Putin has put forth an idea that I must agree with. An alliance including Iran, Iraq, and Syria to combat the threat of ISIS. Makes sense to me. After all, these are the local boys on the block. Who better to solve the area's problems than the nations of the area. Canada? France? Poland? C'mon, that ain't gonna work. I'll never forget the predictions that claimed we would all be overrun by the communists if the west abandoned the military adventure in Viet Nam. Different time. Yes. Different place. Yes. Different circumstance? Hmmm....the use of military force to accomplish political ends. Didn't work then.....What makes it likely to work now?
Canada would be better served by seeking out ways to make friends in the middle east, instead of dropping bombs on people and making enemies.
