Remember when Liberals said Harper's "controlling personality" made a mockery of democracy and the collective will of parliament? 

Not a peep now.

No problem with omnibus bills anymore, OICs with expensive confiscations that affect millions of taxpayers are now OK too... they are even applauded.

And making a deal with progressives to shut down parliament.... thats just dandy too, especially if the deal impinges on provincial jurisdiction and you don't like the premiere most affected anyway eh?

Hard to believe I ever voted Liberal, the only thing worse than than the current level of hypocrisy, is the defence of it.  Election reform is now a must, the urban/rural divide that Liberals exploit (and nurture) in order to survive as a government is creating a seething chasm of division. And when you need to create and foster division and polarization to survive, it's either time for you to go, or it's time to change the rules that aided and abetted your cause and created the environment in which identity politics can gain a toehold.

Perhaps a Liberal can name a place (anywhere in the world) where tribalism has served the country well. I've never had an extended vacation there....I can sure name a few where it hasn't though.

Don Martin: The 21 seconds of silence that said everything about Canada's reaction to Trump

Published Tuesday, June 2, 2020 2:09PM EDT1
 

OTTAWA -- Watching Justin Trudeau’s daily COVID-19 briefings lately is to believe the time has come to shelve the ritual as being well beyond its best-before date.

When billions in emergency program spending were rolling out and course corrections were a regular feature of these media encounters, it made sense for the prime minister to personally face a nervous nation.

Recently, though, it’s more about rehashing the government agenda and taking credit, deserving or otherwise, for pandemic responses. In other words, it is no longer must-see TV.

 

Then came Tuesday’s 21 seconds of silence.

Trudeau was asked for his reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to use the military to suppress George Floyd protests while tear-gassing peaceful demonstrators near the White House so he could stage a Bible-holding photo-op outside a nearby church.

What made the question particularly daunting was the second part of reporter Tom Parry’s question: “If you don’t want to comment, what message do you think you are sending?”

Trudeau stared at the camera - and said nothing. The sign language interpreter folded her hands. Not a bird chirp could be heard.

Finally, Trudeau sought verbal refuge in acknowledging everybody has challenges with systemic discrimination, including Canada.

Now, there are only two ways to explain how a prime minister was caught flat-footed when asked for reaction to Trump behaviour that has outraged the United States and is reverberating around the world.

Either his spin doctors had a huge fail before the briefing by neglecting to arm Trudeau for a question that was obviously going to be asked.

Or some genius in his communications army suggested the best escape from a no-win predicament was for the boss to simply stand at the podium for an uncomfortably long time while appearing to struggle for the right words.

One of my friends figured the teleprompter had stopped working, leaving Trudeau tongue-tied for his rehearsed lines.

But, even though it often seems that way, there was no electronic babysitter ready to spoon-feed a script to the prime minister.

So we might never know how Trudeau came up with a perfect way to express his personal outrage without giving the president cause for a cross-border counterpunch.

But perfect it was.

No American president has never seemed this foreign to the vast majority of Canadians, unleashing behaviour that defies comprehension with such deadly consequences.

Yet no president has shown the capacity to take politics so personally, reacting with a vengeful temper to real or perceived slights.

That gives Trump immunity from candid criticism by allies who know the economic cost for incurring his wrath isn’t worth the political benefit of saying the right thing.

Hitting the mute button is particularly challenging for Trudeau, a prime minister with the habit of being preachy about gender, visible minority and indigenous rights to other nations while his government falters on taking action on its own.

Of course, deploying the sounds of silence against a disturbed president was a one-off, if it was indeed a deliberate communications strategy.

Trudeau can’t keep saying nothing when asked about a president who is just getting started on dividing his nation to conquer the electoral college.

But, for at least one day, Justin Trudeau managed to condemn without commentary, to convey disgust without decibels and to muffle any Trump backlash without saying a word.

That made Tuesday’s COVID-19 briefing something worth watching.

this is a method used by lawyers and is coached to witnesses who take the stand.  NEVER answer a question immediately unless you already practiced the response.  He was hit witha  tough question and he paused.  He formulated what he was going to say in response and then he spoke and spoke well.

The silence itself also had a targeted effect and it was a bullseye

"Better be careful picking on Trudeau ....I was in a restaurant the other day and this guy was talking "smack" about Trudeau and didn't know there was a Liberal sitting next to him. 

Well Ol ' Libtard got **bleep**, pulled out a razor and went after the guy. .. he would have KILLED him too, if he had found a place to plug it in."

Only one of two things happened..

(1) Either the teleprompter broke, or (2) this was all theatre.

 

Trudeau has NEVER given an unscripted answer that didn’t have at least a dozen, ummms, ahhhs or errrs in it. That answer was flawless in delivery which tends me to believe it was being read word for word. Remember, the puppet master BUTTS is back on the scene. This was definitely a planned event. It is also common knowledge that every question put to Trudeau is submitted in advance. His handlers have learned well by his 3,496 embarrassing screw ups in the past.

Never forget the level of mentality he has available.

PS. Deicer. It’s a joke

I’m still betting the tele promoter went off line....

I read somewhere they don’t have teleprompters at these “photo ops” sessions he runs every day. If that’s the case, it’s likely his tears blotted out the paper he was reading from.

Nothing to see here folks....move along and don’t ask questions.....oh yeah, clear and transparent government:

Quote

Member of Parliament Marwan Tabbara said he is “stepping back from the Liberal caucus” but not resigning as an MP after revelations he was criminally charged with assault, break and enter and criminal harassment.

Tabbara, 35, was charged with two counts of assault, one count of break and enter and commit an indictable offence and one count of criminal harassment — back in April — for an alleged incident in a neighbouring Ontario riding.

Neither the Guelph Police nor the Trudeau government revealed the charges to the public until the National Post and two other media organizations directly asked police about them on Thursday.

Despite the serious nature of the allegations and charges, Guelph Police did not publicly report the arrest at the time, not even with the MP’s name removed.

Guelph Police Constable Brian Murphy confirmed the arrest of the Member of Parliament Friday but said little information could be released at this time, other than the basic charge information.

Police declined to answer follow-up questions, including whether the alleged assault victim and alleged criminal harassment victim are the same person; what the gender or genders of the alleged victim or victims are; and the alleged circumstance of the incident.

Nor was there an answer as to why the arrest was not publicly announced, although police did say the information is “a matter of public record.”

“I appreciate your inquiry however this is the information we are releasing at this time,” Murphy responded to those questions.

So we have a “government” telling us to stay home, social distance..blah blah blah and this guy is out doing b&e’s??

Come to think of it, our pm has shut down parliament, making daily pronouncements from a tent,  dictating to citizens to isolate themselves and avoid social contact........and he has the nerve to take part in a march with thousands of other people, some without masks....for a photo op.....the whole world is watching.

The willingness of Canadian voters to simply accept the governments deliberate suppression of police information seems to be a recent development. I remember there being 24/7 news coverage of that CNN guy who was kicked out of the WH briefings for being disruptive, It got a lot of play in Canada too as a freedom of the  press issue. 

But real abuses, in your face obvious manipulations are now simply ignored by a desperately hypocritical liberal base. 

Anyone who can look at this event, the Danforth shooting, and the Nova Scotia shooting and not see deliberate suppression for political gain is willfully blind to it. Government lawyers have been to court in an effort to suppress warrant information that should have been public weeks ago and everyone knows it....

More concerning is that the sort of blindness I'm talking about exceeds normal parameters of simple narrative  and speaks to a willingness to employ sinister methods for political expediency with the full backing of supporters. It's the backing that begins to scare me, not the motives of government.

Mix in direct financial support to the media and the stated intent to apply legally imposed censorship filters to all news and you begin to see a trend. When real freedom of the press is placed in jeopardy no one seems to notice or care. Absolutely festinating to watch this stuff. How many times did I sit in history class wondering "how did people sit by and let this happen?"

That's why I'm so grateful to have a front row seat for all this. Even if I had a magic wand with a rest/REINIT function I wouldn't use it.

A somewhat balanced commentary on our PM from an unlikely source.

COMMENTARY: We don’t need and shouldn’t want Trudeau calling out Trump

rob-headshot-028.png?w=68&h=68&crop=1
BY ROB BREAKENRIDGE GLOBAL NEWS
Posted June 6, 2020 8:00 am
 Speaking to reporters outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa on Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he views his role as Prime Minister as being one where he advocates not only for Canadian "values" but also Canadian "interests" in reference to his long pause, and guarded comments, when it comes to the actions of U.S. President Donald Trump.
 

Whatever one thinks of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not just showing up at an anti-racism protest in Ottawa but also taking a knee, I think we can all agree that the last thing we need is U.S. President Donald Trump weighing in.

Just as Canadians can decide for themselves whether our prime minister has appropriately handled or responded to this or any other issue, the same is true for Americans and their president. It’s quite obvious that Trudeau and Trump are very different politicians and certainly there has been a sharp contrast between how the two have spoken about recent protests and broader issues around racism.

READ MORE: Justin Trudeau takes a knee at anti-Black racism protest in Ottawa

What is to be gained from having our prime minister directly calling out, criticizing, or rebuking the U.S. president? Very little, as far as I can see. Trudeau deserves credit for steering clear of doing so and his critics should perhaps give their heads a shake.

Make no mistake, I believe Trump is fully deserving of all sorts of criticism on all sorts of issues and is probably also deserving of a resounding defeat in November (mind you, I also think Trudeau is deserving of much criticism on a range of issues). There are plenty of Canadians with all sorts of opinions on Trump, but that doesn’t need to include the prime minister.

When it comes to matters affecting the Canada-U.S. relationship, there may indeed be moments where one leader is justified in publicly criticizing the other. It was certainly reasonable, for example, for Trudeau to speak out against the steel and aluminum tariffs that Trump imposed on Canada.

 Trudeau rejects Trump suggestion to re-admit Russia to G7, citing Crimea invasion

Furthermore, it’s possible for the two leaders to disagree on matters without openly calling each other out. When Trudeau recently asserted his position that Russia should not be readmitted to the G7, it was obvious that he was taking a different position on the matter from Trump — he didn’t really need to add “so therefore Trump is wrong on this,” which would have been needlessly provocative.

When it comes to domestic issues, though, we should adhere to the tradition of our respective leaders refraining from commenting directly. That should still apply even in a situation such as the one we’re confronted with at the moment.

As Trudeau appeared at the rally on Friday, he was greeted with chants of “stand up to Trump.” That came on the heels of a rather awkward moment earlier in the week when Trudeau took about 20 seconds to respond to a reporter’s question about why he wouldn’t comment directly on Trump’s call to deploy the military to deal with the protests or the manner in which protesters were cleared out of Washington D.C.’s Lafayette Square on Monday.

READ MORE: Trudeau stays silent on Trump’s behaviour as George Floyd protests spread

First of all, it is delusional to think that a public rebuking from Trudeau — or any other foreign leader — would convince Trump that he is in the wrong or that he needs to change course. If anything, it would likely cause Trump to double down. Furthermore, there’s likely a substantial number of Americans who may have their own reservations about how Trump has dealt with these issues, but would bristle at such blatant foreign interference.

The United States is and remains a democracy. Americans will be the ones to judge the president on how he has performed. Those concerned at Trump’s words or actions should take heart in the fact that many Americans seem less than impressed in how he has responded.

A condemnation from Trudeau would likely have little impact on public opinion but could have a significant impact on Canada-U.S. relations. It’s not worth it.

Moreover, this focus on what, if anything, Trudeau should say about or to Trump gives the prime minister a pass on the situation here at home. These protests happening in Canadian cities are not mere solidarity rallies — they’re meant to call attention to issues affecting us here in this country.

Instead of demanding Trudeau “stand up to Trump,” demand he do something about the situation in Canada. Leave the “standing up to Trump” to the Americans.

Latest email from Leslyn Lewis:

This morning, hundreds of thousands of Canadians gathered in front of their computers to partake in worship services due to COVID-19 health restrictions.

As a whole, Canadians have followed our political leaders and health officials throughout this crisis and its devastation on our economy.

Anyone who broke guidelines was swiftly and publicly shamed, if not fined or threatened with legal actions.

Over the past week we saw the same health officials and political leaders that wouldn’t allow churches to meet in parked cars expressing that mass gatherings and protests should not just be allowed, but encouraged.

The Prime Minister himself ignored social distancing guidelines to take a knee at a demonstration in Ottawa, surrounded by thousands of protesters.

Watching health officials and politicians reverse course so swiftly this week leads us to conclude:

Either their recommendations and guidelines were heavy handed and unnecessary, OR they were so eager to gain the approval of a large electoral block of voters, many of whom are people of colour, that they were dishonest with them about the health risks of the protests and demonstrations.

In fact, Canada's Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam, instead of warning against protesting in large numbers, simply suggested that demonstrators consider wearing masks and limit yelling, because "shouting and making loud projections can potentially increase the risk".

These messages line up exactly with plans that churches had already put forward to various government as guidelines for reopening.

Yet not only was no reopening plan granted for churches and other religious gatherings, the elected officials themselves didn't even follow their own rules when joining in the protests.

The inconsistency is maddening.

I support the rights of Canadians to protest. I support the right of every Canadian to take a knee.

But if people are allowed to gather together on their knees in a call for justice, then we must allow people to gather together on their knees in prayer.

If these protests are not a danger to the public health and those participating, then our officials owe an apology not only to people of faith who are still prohibited from gathering in any meaningful way, but also every Canadian who has been kept from the bedside of a dying loved one.

Canadians are reasonable and we are willing to make sacrifices of our freedoms for the common good. But our leaders must be accountable and transparent, and if they have restricted our freedoms without reason, they need to answer for it.

“ Well Justin... I am not going to give you a pass on this one. First off... your blanket generalizations and stereotyping do not sit well. This picture is one of several occasions where you thought "blackface" was acceptable. So I find it more than a tad galling that you want to stand on a soapbox and tell me I should be ashamed of myself. Do you know who should be ashamed? You. 

Had you qualified your statement and said "there is an element in Canadian society" and continued from there, I might be able to stop my near uncontrollable urge to projectile vomit. But you gross sweeping generalization of Canadians shows how really out of touch you are. But then again, you have demonstrated that you believe you are the "great knower of things" even when you are absolutely wrong. Perfect example? The Hypocracy of the SNC Lavalin affair. You never once demonstrated that you have any comprehension of the failings of your handling of that debacle. Despite your obsession with getting SNC a DPA, the courts have ruled and found several SNC employees guilty of the crimes you were trying to let them skate on. 

If we are going to use broad generalizations to underscore your talking points, you had best be damn sure that you are not guilty of far worse. I am not sure about others but being told I have "unconscious bias and anti-black racism" and should be ashamed of myself by am person whose moral failings are on display regularly is just a touch more than I can tolerate in this environment. Your toadie Wernick used the term vomitorium. WE need one. To deal with your sanctimonious, self entitled bullshit. 

If I am lucky I may never have to go to Ottawa again. Why? Simple. I do not need to get splattered by any of the Bullshit you are dishing up.  Thanks to the Web, you are going to find that these photos will live on in peoples minds for far longer than you want. You have a penchant for calling anyone who disagrees with you a racist. Well you dumbass, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. 

Looking at this photo ensures that for me many of those words about you and your self anointed entitlements are expletives. Now shut your pie hole and get back to work.“

Annnnnnnd what do you propose be done?  Arrest EVERY person in the crowd?  Charge them all?  The protest is going to happen whether you like it or not.  May as well make a statement while its going on and perhaps show some solidarity and compassion. 

Bitching about the "incinsistency" is just childish whining and trying to find a story where there is none.

Well, one thing I propose is that he doesn't encourage it by joining in for photo ops!  Sure some people will break the law no matter what, just like all those people who congregated in the park.   That activity was criticized (rightly) and discouraged.  This should have been the same.  He could have cried on camera for all the lefties, given one of his overly dramatic "coast-to-coast-to-coast" speeches and told people to stay home.

It is a PROTEST.  By definition pretesting the government would require some from of civil disobedience.  If not then there would be no protest and we would all be sheep led to slaughter. 

Yes.  its a photo op.  He is a POLITICIAN.  That's what they do and if you think that any other politician of any stripe would not have done the same you are mistaken.

Is this the world we live in now.  Spend wasted hours just nitpicking at the little things while ignoring the things that REALLY matter and are ignored.  I find it amazing that people are so totally distracted by something so insignificant and yet can't see the greater picture.

Yes there is a story but no one is telling it.  So while you complain about him walking in a protest and not social distancing, your rights are being systematically stripped away.  But hey, At least you are wearing a mask.
