There’s a critical aspect to the Duffy trial that we’re not going to get out of Harper’s PMO staff or his “loyal unto death” shills in the Senate or the Conservative Party executive.
It’s an aspect that goes to what appears to be a political prosecution that, it could be argued, calls justice into . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Will Sergeant Horton Please Take the Stand

I have found it puzzling that the Commissioner of the RCMP, the federal top cop, is writing letters to provincial chief firearms officers (CFOs) warning them not to start setting up provincial long gun registries.
First of all, isn’t this a matter for the guy who oversaw the scrapping of the federal long gun registry, . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Shouldn’t the RCMP Mind Its Own, Long-Neglected Business?

I don’t think so. This question ran through my mind when I . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: I Don’t Believe Anonymous Did Anything Wrong
Did Vic Toews reward one of his mistresses with an appointment to the Manitoba Court of Queens Bench? That’s the allegation and, it’s claimed, the reason Harper removed Toews as justice minister to protect his government from scandal.
It’s an interesting, even plausible claim but if Toews was instrumental in appointing a lover to . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Anonymous Update on Toews
As long as the turd is painted Conservative blue, apparently there’s very little difference. Or at least that was the message that seemed to come through from reading this assessment of Vic Toews by one of his constituents from the Red River Valley Echo:

The effect if not the intention of Vikileaks30’s tweets was to remind Mr. Toews that whether . . . → Read More: Politics and Entertainment: Moral Distinctions Matter in the Toews-Social Media Brouhaha
The long-gun registry is endorsed by Hitler, Liberals should help Quebec separate to get rid of Harper, and Canadians are either Conservative or child pornographers.
With a few recent cases of individual politicians lowering civil discourse in Canada, one could say they’re just isolated incidences, but in looking at their audience, it’s clear . . . → Read More: The Scott Ross: Canada Can Be Civil Or It Can Stand With Child Pornographers
Vic Toews, apparently desperate to divert attention from his lurid past, is now saying that he’s been the victim of “criminal acts and threats of future criminal acts” against him. He subsequently expanded that to include his brand new wife and his new child too, the one he sowed while still with his old wife . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Is Vic Toews Blowing a Smoke Screen?
