The federal campaign is now at its half-way point. Let me share some thoughts. The Daily Nanos rolling overnight polls show little change in the last two days and everyone is saying public opinion isn't budging. Remember the good old...Show More Summary
This was another great moment last night when we finally got to see Stephen Harper get a little truth about leadership from Michael Ignatieff. Play it often.
While watching the post-debate spin tonight on CBC and CTV, I asked myself: 'Were we watching the same debate?' Ignore the spin doctors. Watch for yourself one of Ignatieff's many great moments tonight.
Watching tonight's debate left me invigorated with Michael Ignatieff's performance and leadership. I applauded with joy his many zingers and take-downs of Stephen Harper and his record. He made the case this Harper government has got to go. Show More Summary
Kudos to where they are due: Joe Warmington in Sun Media today. “We found that money expended for the G8 infrastructure projects under the Border Infrastructure Fund were approved by Parliament without any indication that $50-million...Show More Summary
Would it be too sneaky for Stephen Harper and his Immigration minister, Jason Kenney, to purposely delay final approval of Zsuzsanna Zsohar's immigration application so that the Conservatives could try to make it an issue against Michael Ignatieff in this election campaign? No, surely, Harper wouldn't stoop that low...?
With answers like these, this election is over! lol
Clearly, Stephen Harper thinks Canadians are idiots who can't even remember what he said last week. Here are the facts: Harper challenged Ignatieff to a one-on-one debate. Ignatieff agreed to it. Then Harper chickened out. Now Harper's...Show More Summary
If he keeps this up, he will win on May 2nd!
Inquiring minds want to know if Stephen Harper has ruled out proroguing Parliament again like he did in 2008 to stop an opposition coalition from taking over? He claims such a coalition is inevitable if he only wins a minority of seats this election. Why would he not just prorogue again to stop it?
The Liberal Party won't try to form a coalition with any other party, Leader Michael Ignatieff promised Saturday.Ignatieff tried to pre-empt possible questions from the media — and criticism by Conservative Leader Stephen Harper — by...Show More Summary
Some free advice for the federal Grits: In response to the next question on the coalition, Michael Ignatieff should answer: I'll never form a coalition agreement with the Bloc or lead a government that depends on support from the Bloc Quebecois. Show More Summary
Yes, it looks like a big theme in the upcoming Tory election campaign will be: vote Tory and give us a majority because otherwise the opposition parties will form a coalition with the Bloc Quebecois and the country will go to hell...yada yada yada...If this logic were true, we'd have a coalition government right now.

So much for the political judgment of Justin Trudeau. This was pretty daft on his part, I must say. Sometimes, opposition critics feel the need to criticize the government for the sake of criticizing. This should not have been one of those times. Show More Summary
What would happen to this strange personality that is our PM should he be given majority power over our beautiful country?
The Canadian House of Commons passed a private member's bill yesterday - February 9, 2011 - by a narrow vote of 143 to 135 to provide protection against discrimination in the Canadian Human Rights Act to transgendered and transsexual citizens. Show More Summary
I've been a longtime Scotiabank customer. I switched from CIBC over a decade ago because CIBC refused to allow access to its ATM machines outside working hours at its Carlton/Church location at the time due to concerns about homeless people sleeping inside its location at night. Show More Summary
The latest sleazy ads taking Michael Ignatieff's words completely out of context prove Harper Tories are rotten to the core. There is no moral compass left. You can read about them here. I AM VERY ANGRY! These Tory scumbags deserve to...Show More Summary
Reading Chantal Hebert's article today in the Star got me thinking about an important question that I have not yet heard asked of Prime Minister Stephen Harper: if a coalition agreement between the NDP and Liberals is inevitable if his...Show More Summary
Xtra is reporting some great news from last night's Halton Catholic board meeting: the ill-advised ban on gay-straight alliances (GSAs) has been lifted. "In a 6-2 vote, trustees decided to rescind the ban and shelve their equity and inclusive education policy. Show More Summary
