“the lack of participation is puzzling”

possibly due to the fact that it is impossible to defend this guy anymore…..with all the scandals….VA Norman, SNC, WE charity, Emergencies Act,  Mass Casualty interference and probably a few more I’ve lost track of…..how could anyone say, just a minute, the government had it right…. and more to the point, if they had evidence to back up their position, why would they hide behind cabinet confidence and not answer direct questions in a parliamentary committee?? 
Then there are the members that disagree with the current government and are just fatigued with the examples of constant mismanagement ……Wolfhunter come to mind.

In the mean time…..


the hits just keep on comin!

st27,

Thanks for all you do.
 

From the responses to this thread in general, it appears very few of us on this forum understand what’s really happening with Trudeau in power. Without doing a deep dive investigation to actual numbers, it’s probably less than 10 people have posted concerns. Considering the fact that this is an anonymous medium, the lack of participation is puzzling. It’s either that or most continue to be afraid of their shadows by actually speaking up. Actually it’s a very Canadian trait. Submission.

By virtue of their non response one might conclude they agree with how the Liberals are destroying the country one day at a time. Pretty sure I’m wrong here but at times it’s concerning. Its not like no one reads what’s posted with 69.9 K views on this thread alone.

As much as most of us disagreed with Deicer and his Leftist rhetoric at least he was willing to state them. Koodos  👍

Perhaps the lack of response is because folks get tired of the constant harping on a subject that will never be resolved on an internet forum and are saving their energies for when an election is called, a time when their POV may sway others. 🙃

It is kind of ironic that there is an article in the National Post by Terry Glavin questioning how wealthy connected Iranians seem to appear in Canada:

Quote

Then there was the case of Morteza Talaei, another IRGC alumnus and the notorious former police chief of Tehran back when Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi was arrested and tortured to death in 2003. Talaei was spotted working out in a gym in Richmond Hill, Ont., in December 2021. Apparently in Canada to visit family, when he was asked how he managed to swing a visa from Ottawa, he said it was nobody’s business. Officials with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada said more or less the same, citing Canada’s privacy laws.

https://nationalpost.com/opinion/terry-glavin-ottawas-lush-welcome-mat-for-rich-iranians-linked-to-its-brutal-regime

and an article in a Toronto paper which covered a deadly car accident involving a speeding, impaired, unlicensed driver who had just arrived from Iran:

Quote

Hayatibahar, 19 at the time, spent Aug. 18, 2019 with his friend Farbod Riazi, visiting a waterpark and drinking. Riazi was driving them in his mom’s Mercedes SUV at “very high speeds,” the judge said, and then gave the keys to Hayatibahar, a recent landed immigrant from Iran with no licence to drive.

 

The tone had been set, Di Luca said.

 

That night, the drunk Hayatibahar drove the Mercedes up and down Yonge St. in Richmond Hill at speeds of up to 170 km/h, weaving around slower moving cars, before he lost control and slammed into oncoming traffic.

 

The car driven by Fard was hit head on. The 44-year-old engineer at Magna suffered “absolutely gruesome injuries” and died at the scene, the judge said. His wife, rehabilitation physiotherapist Nazanin Amiri, 41, and young son, Alireza, were badly injured but miraculously survived.

Yes, the accident was in 2019, but with the current government, who knows what has been going on with immigration…..

More questions are being raised:

Quote

But the son of one of the regime’s top officials — a woman closely connected to her nation’s ruling clerics — has been living quietly in B.C., possibly developing virtual private network (VPN) software that’s popular in his home country, though criticized for its security flaws.

 

Hamid Rezazadeh’s story — broken recently by Swiss-based Iranian journalist Abdollah Abdi — raises difficult questions about who Canada should admit from a nation that’s been widely criticized for human rights abuses, and caused the deaths of dozens of Canadian air passengers?

Some Iranian-Canadians and other opponents of the regime argue Rezazadeh definitely shouldn’t have gotten in, especially when Ottawa has denied visas to other Iranians with no link to the government .

 

And they note that he’s not unique. Tehran’s former police chief — accused of various human rights abuses — was spotted in the Toronto area earlier this year, while a great-granddaughter of Ayatollah Khomeini, late founder of the Islamic Republic, went to university in Ontario.

“It just amazes me that the Trudeau government would allow this kind of infiltration into Canadian society,” Nader said.

 

The movement of regime figures and their family members to Western countries is galling for those still in Iran, too, said Mariam Memarsadeghi, a D.C.-based fellow with the Macdonald-Laurier Institute.

 

“Democratic countries like Canada need to wake up to the fact they are being used by the world’s most brutal regime as a safe haven,” she said. “While they enforce these medieval, draconian laws on the people, their own children are free to live without the hijab, living Western lifestyles.”

JUSTINFLATION

 

How Canadians think of the economy >>>>  https://www.angusreid.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/Consumer-Economic-Pulse-2022.09.02.pdf

 

The loonie has fallen to its lowest level in almost two years — here's why

Loonie fell to near 75 cents US on Friday and analyst says it could go as low as 73 cents.

 

The Canadian dollar fell to its lowest level in almost two years on Friday, as investors around the world surveyed the worsening outlook for the economy and ran toward the safety of the U.S. dollar.

The Canadian dollar was changing hands for as little as 75.15 cents US at one point on Friday morning. That's the lowest level for the currency since October 2020.

The loonie was off by about half a cent from Thursday's close, just the latest down day in a stretch of them for Canada's currency.

While all the other Canadians former PM’s that taxpayers paid for (Kim Campbell, Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin and Stephan Harper) to go represent Canada behaved themselves appropriately given the solemn occasion of the Queens funeral, dumbledorf is filmed singing Bohemian Rhapsody in the lobby of a hotel. Would it have been too much to ask for Canada to have just ONE occasion where he doesn’t embarrass the country? 😡

Scaremongering about Poilievre could be the only move Trudeau has left 

Trudeau set the tone for the fall parliamentary session when he 'congratulated' Poilievre on his victory last week

Pierre Poilievre and his team will be gratified by the first public opinion poll since he was elected Conservative leader, which gives his party a healthy five-point lead over Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

While there was no sign of a surge in support from voters — Abacus Data has the Conservatives at 35 per cent support, up one point from its last survey — neither was there a drop in approval from Canadians queasy at some of the new leader’s more controversial rhetorical flourishes.

The poll puts the Liberals at 30 per cent; the NDP at 17; the BQ at nine and the People’s Party at four).

Trudeau set the tone for the fall parliamentary session when he “congratulated” Poilievre on his victory last week. He said Canadians need “responsible leadership,” a quality he said was lacking in a campaign that attacked “institutions that make our society fair, safe and free”; which said people could opt out of inflation by investing in cryptocurrencies; and that demeaned the vaccines “that saved millions of lives.”

 

Even in his address on the Queen’s death, the prime minister took a barely disguised dig at Poilievre, when he said global democratic institutions are being challenged by unnamed politicians.

 

It is a strategy that makes sense for a government that has little to boast about. David Coletto at Abacus has previously divided the Canadian electorate into four segments — progressive professionals (about 13 per cent of voters); the secure middle (roughly 40 per cent); anxious progressives (27 per cent) and anxious conservatives (20 per cent). The first two groups are doing well and are happy with the status quo; the latter two feel the system is rigged against them and that they are unrepresented in power.

Are Canadians getting good value for our tax dollars?

Considering how much we pay, it's a reasonable question to ask!

A new study published by the Fraser Institute today finds that the average Canadian family paid more in 2021 on taxes than it did on housing, food and clothing combined.

Last year, the average family spent 43% of its income on taxes and 36%on basic necessities.

That is a dramatic shift since 1961, when the average family spent 33.5% on taxes and 56.5% on basic necessities.

Find out more by checking out the full study here, and help inform other Canadians by sharing this news on social media.

Uh-oh, Trudeau's back to not thinking about monetary policy again 

Unfortunately, Ottawa’s commitment to fiscal restraint died with the mayflies

 

But we have to forgive the prime minister: he doesn’t often think about monetary policy. This is about cold, hard power.

 

The Liberals are reluctant converts to national dental care but it is the price to be paid for the agreement with the NDP, designed to keep Justin Trudeau in the style to which he has become accustomed.

 

The government’s plan on inflation is to keep writing cheques to convince voters that, whoever is to blame for rising prices, it is not them. It is a strategy that is likely to do more to undermine the Bank of Canada than anything the new leader of the Opposition says.

“ I’m not stupid — I’ve worked for the public service long enough to know that when that happens, they’re taking it back." — Retired Canadian Forces member and Afghanistan veteran Aesop Zourdoumis, who was correct that the one-time windfall of $7,103.37 he received was sent in error by Veterans Affairs Canada. No worries, since Zourdoumis had set the money aside and was all set to repay it. The real problem arose when the government also demanded the almost $3,000 that had already been deducted by the Canada Revenue Agency, making it the job of  Zourdoumis to battle with the CRA for reimbursement. Bryan Passifiume has the story.”

I wasn't going to post this as I am not exactly a fan of our PM but  for a more balanced look at the singing.

GUNTER: Trudeau's singalong isn't worth the outrage

Lorne Gunter - Yesterday 3:41 p.m.
 
A short video posted to YouTube shows Prime Minister Justin Trudeau singing in the lobby of a U.K. hotel on Saturday during the mourning period for the Queen.

The furor over Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s impromptu lobby singalong last weekend while in London for the Queen’s funeral is yet another example of cancel culture gone wild. Instant, over-the-top outrages like this have to stop – and I am the last person I ever expected to stand up for Trudeau.

Our glib, intellectually lightweight PM deserves harsh criticism for a lot of things. His runaway government spending and ludicrous fiscal policy, both of which are major contributors to the worst inflation in four decades.

The way he suspended every Canadian’s civil rights and seized hundreds of people’s bank accounts just because he panicked about the Freedom Convoy occupation in downtown Ottawa last winter.

We’re still wearing masks on airplanes because our flippant, “woke” national leader can’t admit the worst of the pandemic has passed us by.

Not to mention how he has clung to the the ArriveCAN app – the wonky, bug-filled government software program that has never contributed much to the fight against COVID, but which has badly damaged Canada’s international tourism and sent thousands of Canadians into the equivalent of house arrest because it doesn’t work properly.

Housing affordability, health care collapse. Let’s tweet about how #TrudeauMustGo over any or all of those. But, come on, singing (not badly) an old Freddie Mercury song with some travel companions in a hotel piano bar on his own time!?

Trudeau didn’t stand up during the funeral ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Monday and start doing his Queen rendition (the band, not the monarch or drag version) while the dean of the cathedral was trying to lead prayers.

After Queen Elizabeth’s committal service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the royal family went off for some private time while world leaders headed to a reception. Trudeau didn’t clap his hands loudly to get everyone’s attention, then shout out, “Hey! How ‘bout we sing some ‘70s rock anthems in tribute to the old girl!”

This isn’t anywhere near the equivalent of him going all Bollywood with costumes and dances at official events during his infamous tour of India in 2018. Not only was that grossly inappropriate for a head of government, it had racist overtones, too.

Two nights before Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral, after dinner at the tony central London Corinthia Hotel where the Canadian delegation was staying, the prime minister and some members of the delegation spotted a piano. One of the delegates, renowned Quebec musician Gregory Charles, sat down and started playing. Trudeau joined in and sang along to the chorus of Queen’s 1975 hit, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Was he hosting an official cocktail reception at Canada House when he appeared in a t-shirt and started crooning? Nope.

The British and much of the American press have looked at the viral video that first appeared on Twitter late Sunday and assessed that Trudeau was “presumably drunk.”

Again, nope. It might take some lubrication for most of us to give the coquettish shoulder shimmy and little hip wiggle that Trudeau used, but that’s just Justin being Justin.

He’s a man-child, someone who has only ever been play-acting at being an adult, much less a serious leader.

I have no fear claiming that he is the most incompetent prime minister in our history. He doesn’t need liquor to act melodramatically. That’s just who he is, and who he has been since long before he entered politics.

If that has only just bothered you for the first time now, all I can ask is, “What took you so long?”

“Kid-like,” “an embarrassment,” “unbecoming,” “undignified.” Those criticism have all be levelled Trudeau for his singalong.

Those are all fair criticisms of his behaviour as PM since 2015, but they don’t apply solely to this one incident.

Why am I not surprised ? :icon_pidu:   Yeeeee Haaaaaa…party time !!!

Global Affairs Canada admits some costs on nearly $100k in-flight catering tab for GG trip were 'problematic' 

Did the government look at any catering submissions and say, 'Oh my God, this is an astronomically high price for this small number of meals?'

OTTAWA – The federal government admitted certain items on the nearly $100,000 in-flight catering bill for the governor general’s eight-day trip to Dubai last March were “problematic” and is working to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

The costs were really shocking to all of us. We had eggs! We had omelettes!” deputy secretary to the Office of the Governor General’s secretary Christine MacIntyre told MPs on the government operations and estimates committee Thursday.

 

She said the office was “extremely concerned” when it first learned of the in-flight catering bill in the media.

 

“We cannot change the past, but we can help put in place changes for the future, and we are determined to act,” she said in French.

 

The committee called MacIntye and other officials to testify after the National Post first reported on the lavish dining expenses of the 2022 trip for 30 travellers, including Gov. Gen. Mary Simon, back in June.

Have you ever spent $99,000 on airplane food? The Governor General has and she’s sticking you with the tab.
 
Governor General Mary Simon and her entourage spent $99,000 on in-flight catering during a week-long trip to the Middle East, according to government records the Canadian Taxpayer Federation’s investigative journalist just dug up.
 
Each passenger expensed $2,160 on average. That’s just for airplane food.
 
The flight menu included beef wellington, fresh omelettes, crepes and red velvet cake with whipped cream. The Governor General’s meals were expected to be specially plated with “appropriate garnish.”
 
Here’s what else you paid for:

  • $230 for flower arrangements;
  • $984 for individual Flow water bottles, a high-end boxed water brand;
  • At least $6,023 in combined snack costs;
  • $597 for sparkling mineral water;
  • $305 for beef carpaccio, an Italian dish of thinly sliced raw meat;
  • $165 for lemon and lime slices; and,
  • $322 for freshly squeezed orange and cranberry juice.

Racking up nearly six figures on airplane food is bad. But what makes it worse is that the government can’t get its story straight about how much money was spent.
 
The government originally said it spent $93,118 on the in-flight catering. Then the government backtracked and said it spent $80,367. But new records obtained by the CTF shows the Governor General and her entourage spent more than $99,000 on in-flight catering during the week-long trip. That doesn’t include any hotel or restaurant bills.
 
You know the federal government needs a culture change on spending from the top on down. And now is the perfect opportunity for you to push for change. That’s because the federal committee on government operations is currently reviewing the Governor General’s spending.

" A guy looked at my car the other day and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that car cost."
 
I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.  BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.

         That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality.  When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets and give them dignity for their skills.  When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.

          Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value.  Socialism is the taking of your money against your will by the government under the belief they know how to spend it better and more efficiently than you including giving it to others. "

The last paragraph (last part) sounds like it came out of Trudeau's playbook!

Yeah, the thing that governments do that annoys me the most is the arbitrary donations to random causes in far-away countries;  "We're giving $300 million to promote women's health initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa!" 

Don't get me wrong - women's health is important, women's health in sub-Saharan Africa is important but the questions are; why $300 million?, Why now?  What are the yardsticks to measure success?  How does it dovetail with other programs?  Do your constituents agree with this?  How do you know?  Failing an acceptable answer it's nothing more than a $300 million slush fund going out the back door to crooks, thieves and other bagmen.
