Conservatives Exceeding Election Spending Expectations

What’s that mean? You’ve heard the Con Premiers like Ford and Moe and Kenney are all threatening Trudeau, saying if he doesn’t do impossible things for the oil industry (because it’s rightfully dying), he’s threatening national unity because the Con Premiers will try to break away from Canada to have their own Petrostate?

It’s all part of the Conservative Party of Canada’s effort to exceed election spending limits. Kenney in Alberta is throwing $30,000,000 away on an “energy war” room to target environmentalists and other sane people who care about our planet. Basically it’s a way to funnel more money to crackpot media like Rebel, and climate change denial media like POStmedia. Their theory seems to be that if they can spend provincially, as a government, their ads indirectly supporting Scheer will translate into votes for him without running up the finite election spending limit federal parties face.

WikiLeaks: US Shows Hand

As many journalists and others have been saying for a decade, the US was seeking Assange to charge him with an anti-Constitutional law that threatens investigative journalists around the world.

Many people don’t like Assange, for a variety of reasons, some of them real, and some of them concocted by the US smear campaign run against him. They shouldn’t let their hate blind them as to the real threat.

Assange shared the scoops with newspapers, who are now also at risk of being charged with spying, while they practice journalism like Assange clearly does.

Leader-Post Is “Controversial”

Controversial is a code word for “racist”. That’s according to multiple tweets by the Leader-Post in Regina, Saskatchewan.

To the Rich Go the SpOILs

Oil and Gas don’t clean up their messes, we the Canadian citizen do.

Unrelated, the Bare Naked Ladies song $1000000 mentions John Merrick.
“I’d buy you John Merrick’s remains”

Why did they suggest buying the skeleton for a million dollars? The King of Pop had something to do with that.

Wikileaks: Assange Arrested in London

Assange has been a political prisoner for most of a decade and he still is one today, not a criminal hacker.

Loblaws Corruption Rewarded By Liberals, Conservatives Demand Their Chance

“I want my tax dollars to go to education, healthcare, police and fire services, and infrastructure…not to profitable private businesses. There is something very wrong with this.” – Ms. Kurtz

This should be a joke. Loblaws/Superstore conspired to fix prices on bread. Why aren’t they exempt from Government funding for a period of time after that [unprosecuted] crime? Hmm, where have I recently heard about a large too-big-to-fail Canadian company attempting to evade prosecution for a crime against society, by appealing to the Liberals (and Conservatives)?

Minister McKenna, you lack good judgement if you thought of promoting this shame with a media event, and posting it on your Twitter. Corruption like this is supposed to be a private moment. “Let them eat price-fixed cake products from the Weston bakeries.”

I like energy efficiency as much as the next guy. Okay, probably a bit more than the typical guy. Yet I have a bit of a problem with the Government of Canada giving money to effing Loblaws to improve their energy efficiency. Is there no Ma & Pa grocer left in Canada to give these millions of dollars to to accomplish the same reduction in emissions, while requiring Loblaws meet a minimum standard, or have them simply respond to the [too-low] carbon pricing that just went into effect? You know, the one you put in place to inspire businesses to find innovative ways to build in efficiencies? Asking the Liberals for money isn’t innovative, nor is Liberals paying billionaires more millions of dollars. Those are older than my record collection.

You may be a Liberal reading this, and thinking, “You can’t say that, what if it helps the Conservatives win because this shows that the Liberals are beholden to Big Money, and that they support corrupt businesses with Government dollars.” Except you wouldn’t say that out loud because you’d use a thought bubble if it even crossed your mind.

I leave you with the wisdom of The Walking Eagle:

Billy Mays here with your latest As Seen On TV fad/junk:

If you missed the phony deadline to save $2, don’t worry, I have a way you can save thousands, and avoid paying the carbon tax too.


As you can read here, it’s already less expensive to buy a used EV than a new gas burning vehicle with most of the same features for city driving.
