When Rona Ambrose became the interim leader of the defeated and humiliated Cons, she promised that they would adopt a “new tone.” I predicted that wouldn’t last long, and sure enough it didn’t. Because now Candice Bergen has made it only too clear those were indeed hollow words. And she for one REALLY hates Justin Trudeau.
And that only about ten days after she herself promised to engage her opponents in a more respectful manner. Which can only make some wonder if she has any idea how most Canadians felt about her and her depraved leader…

- Tony Atkinson offers reason for hope that it’s more than possible to rein in inequality and ensure a more fair distribution of resources if we’re willing to put in the work to make it happen: (T)he present levels of inequality are not inevitable; we are not simply at the mercy of forces beyond our control. If we want to reduce inequality, and that is a big “if”, then there are steps that we can take. They are not necessarily easy and they have costs. We would have to discard economic and political orthodoxies. (Read more…)
Few people know where Stephen Harper is or what he is doing these days. He's disappeared from public view after his humiliating defeat.Or is now so shrunken in stature he can't be seen with the naked eye. He's fading from our lives, and even vanishing from the internet.
Last week his propaganda YouTube channel 24/Seven went to black.Now his twitter feed has gone down down the memory hole along with Great Leader…Read more »

When we last saw Stephen Harper he was running or waddling quickly down a corridor, in a desperate attempt to escape the media.Or as portrayed in this Le Devoir cartoon, crawling out the back window for the same reason…
But according to some parliamentary experts, he could soon be running for his political life.Should Mike Duffy decide to summon him to his upcoming trial, and he can't use his parliamentary immunity. Read more »

As I said the other day, I think it's going to be really hard for Rona Ambrose to move herself and her Cons out of the darkness and into the light.When among other things, she was prepared to put her foul ideology before the lives of thousands of drug addicted Canadians. Which is almost impossible to forget.
And after the way Stephen Harper and his foul regime brutalized the people and the values of this country for so many years. Which is almost impossible to forgive.But I see that hasn't stopped Ambrose from claiming that from now on (Read more…)

For what seemed like forever, they were the ads we couldn't get away from. The Con's porky Economic Action Plan ads coming at us from every direction twenty-four seven.Trying to brainwash us into believing that the Cons knew what they were doing. And that Stephen Harper was a Great Economist Leader.They were irritating, they were maddening, it was like North Korea, or Big Brother. Or like some giant hog screaming at us "Vote for us and we'll pay you!!!"So I'm glad to see that ghastly hog has finally expired. Read more »

It seems only fitting that on his last day as Con leader Stephen Harper should leave through a door darkly, while being humiliated over and over again.
In the same manner he ruled and humiliated this country, its people and their values, for nine nightmarish years.
First he had to humble himself before his shrunken caucus, by accepting the blame for the Conapocalypse that booted them all from office.
Then he was caught by some reporters making a quick getaway only a few minutes after ending his short speech. Read more »
