Conservatives cannot point to any corruption examples or criminal activities of the Liberal Party or Prime Minister Trudeau, yet they continue to make the claim that our current Government is corrupt. Examples of real corruption and/or criminal activities was amply demonstrated by the Harper Government but not by our current Government.
Whether in Alberta with Jason Kenney, Ontario with Doug Ford, or federally with Andrew Scheer, Conservatives perpetuate a myth that we are over-taxed, that high taxes are bad, deficits are bad, and that we don’t want to leave our grandchildren a higher debt burden. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY
"Beneath that cerebral, taciturn exterior, however, one detects an insecure, hapless control freak, quick to sulk when he doesn’t get his way, shy, awkward, and deeply repressed."
Stephen Harper expressed open hostility about “Liberal courts” and “Liberal bureaucracy” when first elected. His first move to force his ideology on the DOJ was the "elimination of the Court Challenges Program and the Law Commission of Canada as well as budget cuts to numerous organizations with human rights and equality mandates."
The toxic polarization we are seeing with Conservatives today was introduced by Stephen Harper, a Republican ideologue. He governed for his base only. Remind you of someone? Our Charter was the only thing that stood in the way of an Autocratic ruler who would have subverted our Democracy to his whims.
Andrew Scheer is the leader of the Opposition in Canada, yet he finds the time to mislead his base almost every day. He has an unhealthy and seemingly pathological obsession with blaming PM Justin Trudeau (PMJT) for everything under the sun. As such, we started several blog posts dedicated entirely to Scheer’s #AlternativeFacts, obfuscations, misrepresentations, deflections and/or straight-up lies.
"The fact that we find ourselves here today discussing carbon pricing is telling – despite the fact that carbon prices of one sort or another have been implemented in Canada for more than a decade, opposition and misinformation about carbon pricing policies remains rampant." Andrew Leach
For Andrew Scheer to claim PM Justin Trudeau is responsible for TransCanada's name change because they are running away from Canada when they are heavily invested in the U.S. and when the name change to TC Energy was planned over a year ago, is tin-foil hat thinking. There is rarely a day that goes by without a tweet from Andrew Scheer blaming PM Trudeau for some alleged wrong. He cornered the market on #AlternativeFacts, misrepresentations, and/or obfuscations long ago, but his obsession with blaming PMJT is borderin gon pathological.
In politics, we now live in a “post-truth” world of wicked polarization “alternative facts” and “fake news”! “A defining trait of post-truth politics is that campaigners continue to repeat their talking points, even when media outlets, experts in the field in question, and others provide proof that contradicts these talking points.”
