Its not the policy itself that might get him in trouble; I suspect that the majority of Canadians support legalizing or a least decriminalizing marijuana, and I suspect that the party brain trust has polled and focus-grouped it and knows as much.

He will arrive in a silver space ship and descend in a roiling cloud of dry ice. T-Rex will be playing in the background. There has been some awesome food around that office lately; there may be biryani chicken. But no promises, obviously.

This, then, is the measure of the man! O Glorious, GLORIOUS Justin!!! Myself I wouldn’t have offered a penny back to these silver-haired con-artists! No! I would have told them to go stuff it, and if that didn’t appease ’em I’d have melted ’em down into bricks of Soylent Green and feed ’em to the . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Justin Ascends To Enormous Heights
Meawhile here’s the best Stephen Harper could do last time he visited Europe.
…the three party’s on the painfully stupid and obviously racist decision by the Quebec Soccer Federation to disallow the wearing of Sikh Turbans for religious reasons.
From the CPC:
I see no valid reason why kids should be banned from playing soccer because of their religion. If you agree retweet. bit.ly/135yiS4— Bal Gosal, MP (@BalGosal) June . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Compare And Contrast…
After the B.C. election there was some speculation that Adrian Dix’s sudden thumbs-down to the Trans Mountain Pipeline after a year or so of fence-sitting cost him votes. I think that’s wrong, but since the B.C. polls all turned out to crap, they can’t tell us anything one way or another and we are therefore . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Justin Gives West/East Pipeline Yellow Light
It has begun. Labrador 2013. General Election 2015. PM Trudeau appoints me to Senate, 2016. He also appoints my wife, and gives us two seats near the aisle for bathroom breaks. We eat free at the Senate cafeteria (when you’re a Senator you get a card), and sleep in the upper chamber like everyone else. . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: The Tide Has Turned
Upshot: the anti-Justin Trudeau attack ads, which debuted in the Maritimes so as to get Peter Penashue his seat back, did not work. In fact, given that this is a Forum poll, they probably didn’t work even worse than their top line number suggests.
This is a kind of a guest post from my better half, adapted from a conversation we had earlier upon seeing the LPC message from Justin Trudeau in his khaki T and cargo shorts:You want to counter the whole idea that Justin is the son of wealth. So you put him in his backyard or . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: My Wife On Justin In His Shorts
…is how it shows that JT is stealing from the CPoC as well as the NDP. For the conventional wisdom has 30% of the CDN population rock solid in Harper’s corner, yet this poll puts them below that threshold.
How the heck am I supposed to know? I will say one thing: you can watch this ad and not feel unclean at the end. That in itself is in strong contrast to its Conservative counterparts.
How the heck should I know? You can see ’em here and make up your own mind. A couple of things; Trudeau was stripping down and wearing the stash for charity. And the Quebec quote was a paraphrase of his dad. Interesting too that they are first being launched down East, obviously in context of . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Are The New Anti-Trudeau Ads Effective?
From the Don’t Fly Porter website:
Porter Strikers visited Justin Trudeau at the liberal leadership showcase today and spoke with him about the strike.
Justin said he did not know there was a strike on at Porter when he travelled Halifax to Ottawa.
He did not see a picket line he said, or he . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Justin Won’t Cross
Dear Justin, My campaign for LPoC leader is so fucking doomed right now that its pathetic, and afterwards I’ll have nothing to show for it but debt. Debt, debt, and more debt. And just when I’d managed to shovel my way out the first time, too. Not that you’d know about what that’s like, you pampered . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Parsing The Martha Hall Findlay Apology
…but I like it:
Forty-one per cent of poll respondents said they’d vote Liberal in this scenario, granting the party 164 of the 308 seats in the house. The Tories would get 30% of the vote and 93 seats, and the NDP would get 20% of the vote and 45 seats.

Pot decrim is indeed a common sense idea, esp. now that our Southern neighbors are coming around to it. But it shouldn’t be the headline policy of the LPoC or any LPoC candidate. It should be outlined in a footnote on page 150 of the s… . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: Now Lets Move On
…because you always have to look like you’re having one. And Justin does. Sure his party sometimes looks like its going to become an all night kegger, but he keeps advisers around to make sure that doesn’t happen.
