BigCityLib Strikes Back: NDP Divided Over WWI!

The Frenchy thinks it was bad; the Anglo thinks it was good.  Sun News digs up a few geezers old enough to give a shit.  Federal Liberals stand to reap benefits.  LPoC leader-in-waiting Justin Trudeau rumoured ready to declare ancient conflict a “harshing of the national mellow but, like, I refuse to take a postion until I’ve ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: An Historical Turning Point…?

Talked to my dad the other night.  He told me that he could see himself voting for Justin Trudeau.  This from a life-long NDPer, an old coal miner who can still  remember them from their CCF days. But something about Mulcair seeming doesn’t sit right with him.  The guy  seems angry all the time and–I am ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Justin Trudeau Is NOT Opposed To Pipelines

Just this pipeline…and this one…and this one over here.  Clever strategy, actually. Don’t attack the tar sands in the abstract, just any concrete manifestation of the tar sands.

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Campaign Buttons For LPoC Leadership Contenders

I’m thinking I might give the old political consultant business a try, figuring that if LaForet can pull it off how hard can it be?  So I’ve had several buttons made up as a kind of “proof of concept”, and if these are successful, more will follow.  The two buttons are shown below, accompanied by ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Sometimes A Witch Hunt Helps The Witch

If the Torys want to haul JustinTrudeau before House Natural Resources Committee to explain his Alberta statements, then let ’em.  Give the guy hours of looking handsome and acting human to lay out his leadership platform before a national audience.  Because, believe me, this will get covered wall-to-wall.  The One, getting nagged by the one with ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Jesus Is Right

…its too soon to declare victory.  But maybe not for the reason Mr. Trudeau thinks.  What I would be worried about in his shoes is that his “supporters”–those folks that have signed up on-line  to vote in the LPoC leadership race even though they aren’t LPoC members–massively don’t vote when the time comes.  A bit ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Rise Teenage Jesus…Or Fall!

WK says Justin Trudeau is going to run!  Great news?  Potentially.  If the guy can perform long-term.  But Justin’s fucked a few things up in his time as MP, in ways that have made folks (me included) question his maturity and readiness. I won’t get into specifics, but history may be repeating itself. WK says: ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Under Conditions X,Y, or Z, Teenage Jesus Would Save

Frank Graves is going senile, or desperately poll whoring to get his name in the papers–from anointing Justin, to suggesting that BOC Presdient Mark Carney would woo ’em as an LPoC leadership candidate because of his “magic reviews” with the public, which presumably means that the four people who could pick him out of a police line-up ...
