The Paris Hilton...

...of Canadian politics...

“Please finish the following sentence: If elected, my first full day as prime minster I would…”

The transcript on the paper’s website writes “Pause” before Trudeau’s response. That was exceedingly generous. I would have put “Epic pause.”

It lasts around nine seconds. Which on video – as anyone with media training knows – feels like pretty much an hour. In that time Trudeau widens his eyes. Shrugs. Gives a coy smile. Exhales.
The Crown Prince did his best, but was, as usual, less than impressive.
A couple of problems here. Can anyone discern any actual content in this answer? Aside from the fact that he intends to do something like phone up the mayor of Kingston and promise he won’t swear at him or something like that.
Gomer city... again.

It used to be called "grooming"

Call me old-fashioned, but isn't teaching pre-teens the "right way" to give sexual consent still a violation of the Canadian criminal code? This seems like the sort of thing you'd find in the NAMBLA charter...
no more statuatory rapeNever mind teenagers... apparently learning about consent starts in JK...

“Starting right in the primary and junior grades, kids will be learning listening skills and helping each other to pay attention to facial expressions and what they mean and whether somebody is positive or negative or happy or sad.”
Facial expressions? You go with the guy with the happiest face? That's the solution here?
Wynne also said children should “start to learn those signals from the time they enter school."
Hang on, isn't this gonna lower the age of consent to 5 years old?

Next up... Ontario Liberals hiring homeless rubbies to teach kids how to hold their liquor.

What could possibly go wrong?

Didn't Justin's daddy dearest increase the deficit tenfold over his illustrious reign?

Liberal finance critic Scott Brison hinted at the party’s thinking when he told Mr. Berthiaume much of the work could be done “off the government balance sheet” by tapping funds from pension plans, including the Canada Pension Plan, into which all working Canadians contribute.
Feelin' lucky, punk?

FROM THE COMMENTS: Justin won't need CPP

With his his champagne tastes, it's a good thing Justin will have his 7 times better than private industry pension...
Before being elected a Liberal MP, Trudeau chaired the charitable youth group Katimavik, which was started by his late father's Liberal government.

The Harper government recently announced that it would stop funding Katimavik, citing high per-person costs for its youth-exchange program. Receipts for a Katimavik retreat at the posh 4 Diamond Loews Concorde hotel in Quebec City show that Trudeau billed double the rate of other Katimavik members.
The Crown Prince likes his creature comforts... fine brandies, sushi and premium Grey Goose vodka.

Even before being elected, Justin fed off the government teat.


Toronto Homicide Squad rounding up...

...local farmers, duck hunters & target shooters as we speak...all the bad guys

Toronto Police say they responded to a shooting call on Flemington Rd., northwest of Lawrence Ave. W. and Allen Rd., around 9 p.m.

Officers arrived on the residential street and found a male suffering from fatal gunshot wounds.
Not sure exactly how the "professional" journalist came to the conclusion that the decedent was "suffering", well... anything.
The shooting victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His name and age have not yet been released.

No further details were immediately available.
Is this actually news? The absolute absence of detail puts it more in the category of corner store gossip. No wonder the dead tree media is dying.


FROM THE COMMENTS:

forgot something?

"The only reason this guy is getting anywhere is... the fact that he has a famous father. Now, I like Keith Richards as much as the next guy, but we are talking about running a country here!"
Hmmm... all those weird soundbites about China and dope?

What does a paternity test cost?

Apparently, Baracko Bama's magic jet...

...runs on unicorn farts & magic fairy dust...

On Sunday, President Barack Obama released an anti-oil drilling environmental video shot aboard Air Force One–an aircraft that has a 53,611 gallon fuel capacity.

On Saturday, Obama flew Air Force One over 8,000+ miles to India to discuss global warming and other issues.

RELATED: It's a four hour stopover...

...gotta choose your destination wisely...
The visit comes in the wake of the first state sanctioned beheading under the new King – a brutal practice that was carried out unabated under the reign of Abdullah, for crimes including ‘political dissent’.

While Obama and Kerry make nice with a regime which has a disgusting human rights record, they are skipping the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, to be attended by almost all European heads of state.
Yeah, dude... party like it's 1026.


Gotta have priorities... right?

Barack Obama ducked the Paris memorial and shunned the Israeli Prime Minister... but he'll always make time for a fellow traveller...this is what obama respectsAnd it's not just the President...

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hailed Abdullah as “a man of wisdom and vision” and a “revered leader.”
Apparently, Kerry has never met an oligarch he didn't revere. A little digging reveals a harsher truth...women are cattle, right?Let's ask someone who ought to know.
Abdullah, like other Saudi royals, had numerous wives — at least seven, and perhaps as many as 30. One of these wives, Alanoud Al-Fayez, claims her four daughters’ supposed incarceration, which has gone on for some 13 years, was both a mark of Abdullah’s vindictive streak and intolerance of his daughters’ modern, independent upbringing. She says the four have been locked away for more than a decade, subject to abuse and deprivation.
Even that won't stop Barack Obama from rushing to the Muslim Holy Land to pay his respects.

Maybe he can share a prayer rug with Justin Trudeau.

Those racist homicidal Albertans...

...are at it again...screaming beardieWait a minute...

"Sharif -- who was born in Iraq and moved to Canada in 1993 -- was arrested at a north Edmonton apartment Jan. 19, 2011."
The thing is, in my circle of friends, what makes anyone Canadian is a sense of "shared values"... as opposed to a piece of paper generated by a political agenda. Apparently, for our intrepid reporter, the man's mailing address is more significant than his cultural and religious affiliations.

As Kate at SDA would say... let me fix that headline for you...who is canadianDear MSM... this guy is about as Canadian as Gamil Gharbi. Obfuscation like this is why the dead tree media is dying.
