Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau dropped the f-bomb when he addressed the crowd at the Fight for the Cure charity boxing match in Gatineau, Quebec, over the weekend.
“I’m going tell you, there is no experience like stepping into this ring and measuring yourself,” Trudeau said. “Your name, your fortune, your intelligence, your beauty, none of that fucking matters.”

“This is yet another example of Justin Trudeau’s lack of (Read more…)

In this case is the Norwegian Prime Minister driving around in a taxicab supposedly picking up unsuspecting passengers and chatting about his policies. Now it turns out those passengers were not so unsuspecting. In fact, they were downright suspecting. The Norwegian newspaper reporting, the labor party eventually confirmed, that at least some of those passengers were paid actors cast as ordinary citizens for what would become a campaign video. This, of course, is a shocking breach of the public trust.

A political master-stroke of epic proportions. That’s my take on Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s take-down of opposition leader Tony Abbott in this 15-minute speech on sexism in Parliament. OK, let’s put aside the fact that Gillard’s passionate and personal take-down followed Abbott’s attack on the embattled Speaker of the house, Peter Slipper, who resigned following [...]

Is it possible that Stephen Harper’s uncompromising critics (myself included) are missing something about the prime minister? This 4th grader seems to suggests so. She believes Harper is the best PM. Ever! And Harper agrees. The girl’s drawing (below) made the list of photos of the day for August 2012 on the prime minister’s official website. Even better, it earned a special place on the Dear Leader’s desk. A drawing by Erin Arbuckle (Grade 4) sits on Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s desk.

For a second straight day, a Conservative MP hosting Stephen Harper introduces the Dear Leader as “the prime minister of Cannibal”.
Yesterday we’d a jolly good laugh when Yukon Tory MP Ryan Leef got overjoyed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit and invited those gathered to “join me in welcoming back to the Yukon, the Prime Minister of Cannibal.” Conservative MP, Chris Alexander’s recent take on the F-35 fighter jet controversy is no such laughing matter. It’s an insult to Canadians’ intelligence. During a CBC News’ Power & Politics panel discussion on the Harper Government’s F-53 jet plan, Alexander offered the following statement: “There was a misunderstanding, to some extent, in the Canadian public opinion, to some extent perpetrated by

Oooops! The Dear Leader makes his Conservative lieutenants wet their pants, doesn’t he? Last night, Yukon Tory MP Ryan Leef was so overjoyed by Harper’s visit that he invited those gathered to “join me in welcoming back to the Yukon, the Prime Minister of Cannibal… (laughter), Canada, the Right Honorable, Honorable, Stephen Harper.” (Applause). Or maybe Leef wanted to say “cannabis”? Whatever the case, this was a Freudian slip? Through Leef’s mouth, the Conservative heart spoke. Watch the CBC video:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is reportedly involved in the selection of Canada’s next top soldier, the Chief of Defence Staff.
