Mulcair's position isn't an unpopular one. Whether this translates into yea votes on ratification remains to be seen... there's also the EU FTA coming down the pipeline, which even the PQ supports. All 3 parties are aiming for the centre now.

In the 1930s few people were as fervent defenders of free trade as Clement Attlee.

Justin Trudeau endorses Thomas Mulcair ahead of all non-Quebec Liberal candidates for leadership.

Manure, meet fan. This ties into the February rant. Should profusely apologize but won't.

From that same interview, Trudeau demonstrates his stairs tumbling skill. (at the end of the video) I forgot about the Alberta part but remembered the stairs.

His manner of speech and everything he does says attention whore. Maybe he'll do the stairs trick at a debate when the attention isn't on him, or his Alberta bashing is brought up to change the subject.

Yeah, he's trying too hard to get himself into the leadership position, and it's clearly showing.  Everything I've seen from Justin Trudeau says that he's in it for his own good.

The Conservatives being able to bring up the anti-Alberta speech plus the Greens and the Liberals splitting votes may be what let's Crockatt sail into a victory.

Harper awarded the other Justin (Bieber) a Jubilee Medal for "achievements abroad that bring credit to Canada." LOL. Tongue

Medicare is apparently more beloved than hockey or the military.

What was worse was that JB was in overalls.

After posting the picture on the PM's facebook page, his office quoted Harper as saying that were there roles reversed, Harper would be wearing overalls too.

ugh.

Rob Ford has been removed from office. How do special elections work in Toronto? Unless Ford appeals...

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2012/11/25/toronto-ford-conflict-case-decision-release.html

Oh, and Carney will move to the Bank of England next year.

It's not like Quebec, council decides whether or not to have a by-election.

London mayor Joe Fontana is facing a vote of non confidence (didn't know mayors could face that).

So, potentially 4 Canadian mayors of 4 major cities gone in scandal in a period of a month.

How do you think TO will vote?

Fontana: Hopefully they get him out.

I don't know. There's not much precedent for a mayoral by-election. But, we are 2 years away, so I think they should have one.

As for Fontana, apparently non confidence votes don't matter on city councils. He can just go "whatever" and keep running the show.

Yesterday was a marvelous day. Truly the end of an era of ridicule and embarrassment (alright, I'm from Toronto, there'll never be an end to that). But I truly believe that we can put the Ford years behind us and return to sane and competent municipal gouvernment. No more do I have to turn on the news and watch Ford stumbling over, or saying something embarrassingly stupid, or stalk journalists. Maybe we can have a mayor who doesn't skip town duing Pride and actually attends again! I think Toronto is finally free. We're free.


I do expect the ruling to be appealed and overturned. But this will be such a dark stain on his administration, just like his rule has been a dark stain on Toronto. Fitting.
