RCMP having a hard time tracking Parliament Hill shooter's gun


Man, if only we had had some sort of registry for long guns or something I bet it'd be a lot easier for the RCMP to track this down...

Hey, Conservatives:

Althia Raj and Huffington post, do they work directly for the NDP or is it like an arm's length thing?

So last week I watched this video from the Huffington Post, in which the interviewer who is not seen (but now I'm guessing is Althia Raj) asks straw man argument type questions to then Liberal candidate for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
"Interviewer: One of your recommendations in your platform is with regards to question period, you want to have a PM question time like they do in Britain. I think a lot of people would be surprised to find out that Justin Trudeau only wants to be in the House of Commons one day a week to answer questions.
Justin Trudeau: Actually, that's not what it means."
Nah, that's not a question that injects the answer the interviewer wants right into it or anything... She then goes on for the rest of the interview to try to inject her narrative into Trudeau's mouth with no success.

So I posted it on my Facebook and forgot about it. Until I watched this video today.
"Althia Raj: In fact we know question period is going to change, in the Liberal party's platform Justin Trudeau wants to answer questions once a week we're not sure if that means more than once a week so we'll only have him once a week in the Commons...He says that doesn't mean that if he's in the house he won't answer certain questions but you can rest assured that perhaps he will be more open and communicative outside of the Commons but not necessarily inside of the Commons."
Since Althia Raj was the Huffington Post's reporter following the Liberal campaign it stands to reason she was probably the one who asked that question. So I think that all of us should be concerned for her since she seems to be suffering from amnesia. (More like selective amnesia)

Dear Dippers: It wasn't strategic voting, you lost because we ran a better campaign

So I was reading this article on the Metro website about how the Conservatives appearing with the Fords was the worst thing they did in their campaign according to swing voters, when I see this part at the bottom.
The Liberal Party, meanwhile, had only positives scores.
The promised “tax cuts for middle class/increase for high earners” earned a 56 per cent, followed closely by “Trudeau’s campaign” (55 per cent) and “Trudeau’s debate performance” (51 per cent).
As for the NDP, its plan to raise corporate taxes was the most positive factor among its swing voters (47 per cent), while the only negative was the party’s place in the polls (-8% per cent).
8% underwater on place in the polls is not a massive factor. Sorry Dippers, you can try to explain away the electoral ass kicking we gave you last Monday all you want by insulting voters intelligence, saying they were too dumb to know they already had an NDP MP and so on; but in the end we ran a better campaign than you.

Of course I personally hope they keep blaming everyone but themselves, makes it easier for us to crush them again in 2019.

Today's NDP

The Dipper and Green blame train stops at Voter station

I am absolutely loving watching the NDP meltdown, it's a show that is only on once in a while but I'd watch it every day if I could. The latest narrative from the NDP is to basically claim voters are idiots because they didn't vote for them. And Elizabeth May pretty much said the same thing.

No, really.

Now of course they didn't come right out and say it like that. They just blame "strategic voting" and basically insinuate that the average voter in this country is too stupid to know what party their MP is so they all just voted for the Liberals.

It reminds me of Bill Maher talking about the Republican post mortem on the 2012 election. "Maybe our policies suck... nah, no it can't be that our policies are awesome!"

Please, PLEASE keep thinking that NDP, please keep thinking that you guys are all that Canadians want and it was just because of Harper you lost. Also please PLEASE keep Tom Mulcair as your leader! He serves a dual purpose, #1 he's the greatest leader the Liberals could hope for and #2 when I'm suffering from insomnia I can just pop on a Mulcair speech and I'm out like a light in minutes. This guy puts ambien to sleep.

Face it Dippers, Canadians soundly rejected you as they pretty much always have, despite Quebecker's brief fling with Jack Layton (God rest his soul) in 2011. But keep believing you're awesome, it'll make 2019 much easier.
