Trudeau Man, I, Ahh… I Don’t Know

Canadians were so eager to get rid of Stephen Harper, they forgot they weren’t served very well by a mainstream party holding a majority on power the last 4 years.

Me yesterday:

October 19, 2015 at 1:35 PM:

The alternate universe of sensible adults and fair outcomes would include a minority Parliament with Trudeau, Mulcair, and May all sharing the role of PM at different times over the next 4 years. But, we won’t get such an outcome, and are more likely to get [a Liberal minority without Harper in opposition].
If a Liberal majority, then status quo in a lot of ways for the next 4-5 years.

There’s too much change across the country to digest in one blog post about it all. I’m more optimistic about the future than in 2006 when Harper won, but I also have 9 years of experience, and the world has another decade lacking significant action to turn away from civilization destroying air pollution, and deforestation.

What is Trudeau going to do to inspire real changes? His advisers I don’t have much confidence in, sorry, I don’t. I hope he breaks party lines and appoints a few NDP MPs, and Elizabeth May to his cabinet, but that’s too much to hope for.

Election Prediction As Of October 14, 2015

The result of the election is pretty much known by now, at 8pm Saskatchewan time (MDT), and Harper will no longer be our Prime Minister very soon. I decided this evening to post a prediction because of two tweets.

I figured if he doesn’t want to go down with the ship, that’s a good sign from an insider that Harper is going to lose this time.

Now, into the fuzzier stuff.
145 Liberals
120 Conservatives
70 NDP
1 Bloc
1 Greens
1 Independent

Why is the PMO Shredding Their Files?

Oh right, that evidence of their crimes and misuse of taxpayer money.

Paul Wells wrote this 3 years ago.

I wrote this two years about Coyne’s column about Trudeau. In response, he called me a deranged partisan, and malnourished fool.

Yesterday I posted an endorsement for Trudeau, while Coyne was muzzled by his newspaper’s owners. His last original tweet was days ago.


For #elxn42 I endorse Trudeau, but not the Liberals. #MoreGlobeEndorsements

This will come as quite a shock to many, since I’m a long time Green voter, but I’m endorsing Trudeau for PM, but think his party needs to start advising him better immediately after the election. This endorsement surprises even me, because I didn’t wake up knowing I was going to make it, I just got a giggle in my head when I thought of doing it, and it seemed like a good joke to make.

At least I’m free to make my endorsement as I see fit, no matter how ill advised.

Who Gets The Hill – #UofR #elxn42 panel on Thursday

It was a real dog’s breakfast at this one, where everything from polls to strategic voting discussed frankly by 3 political experts from Regina. Actually it wasn’t a complete mess, it was a well organized event, but the dog’s breakfast thing will make sense if you watch it all.
