A BCer in Toronto: Haters were going to call Eglinton-Lawrence a loss for Trudeau no matter what

When the narrative is against you, events don’t matter — they’ll be twisted to suit the desired message no matter what. Such is the case these days with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party, and Sunday’s nomination in Eglinton-Lawrence offers a compelling case study. As you probably know, some months back former Conservative MP Eve ...

Accidental Deliberations: The Lemming Party of Canada

Shorter Scott Reid: There is no indignity which we Libs we won’t suffer, and no evil which we won’t allow ourselves to be strongarmed into supporting, if it means marginally saving face for the leader irresponsible enough to embrace them in the first place.

Dimitri Soudas buys Liberal membership ahead of Eve Adams’s nomination vote Adams, rival Marco Mendicino vie Sunday for party’s nomination in Eglinton-Lawrence riding By Laura Payton, CBC News Posted: Jul 23, 2015 5:42 PM ET Last Updated: Jul 23, 2015 6:28 PM ET OMG… Wish I could sand-blast my eyes to get rid of the ...

Scott's DiaTribes: Nothing Personal, Eve Adams, but Marco’s my pick.

I’m not going to get irate or flabbergasted or question her motives over her crossing the floor as some Liberals have. It took some courage to do this, and I don’t doubt Dimitri Soudas would be very helpful giving out internal Conservative Party campaign strategy or dirty laundry, and I also think this does damage ...

A BCer in Ottawa: Today, it’s all about Eve (Adams)

Today it was all about Eve in Canadian politics (one should really Google that plot before referencing it though), even after a mini-cabinet shuffle that made Pierre Poilievre a senior minister of the crown. Pierre gives hope to mindless partisans everywhere that excess of loyalty can trump dearth of qualification and intelligence. No, it was ...

The Disaffected Lib: Really Justin, Eve Adams?

She was a perfect fit for the Harper caucus.  She even hooked up with former Harpo mouthpiece Dimitri Soudas.  Then her political career went to hell and she couldn’t even score a Conservative nomination anywhere.  And, to prove that politics is a linear process, Eve Adams has now hopped aboard Team Trudeau. Oh, mein gott, ...

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Monstrous Ebola Scandal

A few days ago I pointed out that Stephen Harper was trying to fan the flames of an Ebola panic.Even though his response to the epidemic has been lethally inadequate. And far from making us safer he has been decimating the ranks of those who would protect us from dangerous diseases.But this is simply obscene. Read more »

Politics and its Discontents: …Gone?

The tale of Eve Adams gets increasingly melodramatic, and increasingly reminiscent of Helena Guergis. That she will suffer Helena’s political fate is looking more likely with each passing day. Readers may recall that prior to her fall from grace, Helena Guergis, at the Charlottetown airport in February of 2010, allegedly threw a tantrum and screamed ...

Politics and its Discontents: What A Friend We Have In Stephen*

* With apologies to Joseph Scriven’s original hymn, What a Friend We Have in Jesus. One can only assume that these days there are far fewer congregants lustily singing the praises of their dark lord and master, Stephen Harper, in that hallowed place of worship known as the Conservative caucus. Their faith has, in recent ...

Musings on Canadian Politics: Haircuts and highlights: Conservative MP Eve Adams on accountability

I hate to state the obvious, but the Conservative Party of Canada has some problems right now. There are very few things the average Joe dislikes more than people who say one thing and do another. This notion applies as equally to the individual as it does to politicians and political brands. The Conservatives are ...

Politics and its Discontents: The Internet As Lie Detector

Funny thing about the Internet, isn’t it? Almost everything that is uttered or printed by public officials cannot, happily, be rewritten à la Orwell’s Nineteen -Eighty-Four. But then again, the government depicted within the novel must have felt the need to guard against uprisings by the people and so relied on scapegoating, invective, close monitoring ...
