Is anyone else getting the feeling that a  possible attempt to assassinate Justin Trudeau, our Prime Minister, is being portrayed as sort of “meh” in the media? The front pages from the Globe and Mail, Global News, and the National Post.  Only Global has a story on it on the front page, and of course CBC is still with the story as I’m quoting their article for this post.

 

 

“Hurren allegedly drove his truck through the pedestrian gate at 1 Sussex Drive at around 6:30 a.m. ET Thursday morning, which stopped working on impact.
He then headed toward the ground’s greenhouse on foot with what appeared to be a firearm, stopping to hide in a rose garden for three minutes around 6:35 a.m., said Duheme.
Duheme said officers spotted Hurren at 6:43 a.m. and began talking with him two minutes later.
“It was only at 6:53 where the suspect responded and a dialogue ensued,” Duheme said.”

Good heavens, only in Canada do we talk down a possible assassin and ask him to please release himself into police custody.  I think if this incident happened a coupe of parallels of latitude to the south, a different more fatal outcome would have ensued.

 

“The RCMP did not answer questions about the note at this morning’s briefing, citing the ongoing investigation.When asked if police know Hurren’s motivation, Duheme said “yes” but would not go into details. The RCMP did say Hurren wasn’t known previously to police and was not on any watch lists.Hurren ran a business called GrindHouse Fine Foods, which makes meat products. In a Facebook post he reported that the novel coronavirus pandemic had taken a toll on his business.”I’m not sure what will be left of our economy, industries and businesses when this all ends,” he wrote May 26.CBC News Manitoba also reported that roughly an hour before Hurren entered the Rideau Hall grounds, a Facebook page associated with his business posted a meme of a big outdoor party that supposedly would occur after the lockdown.

The post also directs people to look up “Event 201″ — a worldwide pandemic preparedness exercise run last year that conspiracy theorists now use to suggest Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is behind COVID-19.”

Yep, armed and seemingly enthrall to conspiracy theories aaaaaand traipsing around Sussex Drive.  I hope our police are not handling the situation like the brother’s Andy from Hott Fuzz, but the media seems to be.

 

 

 

The article and video can been seen on CBC.ca.

 

Trust the conservatives to screw up what should have been an easy smear by dropping the JT brownface video too early in the campaign.  This will be out of the public mind way before election day.  Also take note that Scheer is dancing delicately around this one as he walks the fine line between castigating and coddling the actual racists in his party.

I would still rather vote for Justin that for Scheer because a vote for Scheer is a vote closer to the right-wing populist shitshow they have going on down in the United States, and that fellow Canadians, is something we want entirely no part of.

A leader is someone who takes responsibility from their mistakes and then learns from what they did wrong hopefully becoming a better person in the process.  There is no evidence that the shenanigans of JT’s youth have followed him into his late adulthood.

 

Conservative media has attempted to portray the notion of women as autonomous human beings as "radical".

Conservative media has attempted to portray the notion of women as autonomous human beings as “radical”.

The recently decimated Liberal Party is stirring back to life with the election of a new Leader.  Justin Trudeau has decreed that his MP’s will vote pro-choice, no exceptions.

The woolly anti-choicers that still remain within the party, or loosely affiliated, have recently penned an open letter to Mr.Trudeau about his policy.

“How can such a discriminatory policy serve the democratic ideals of our great nation?” wrote the ex-MPs, many of whom are known for being outspoken on socially conservative issues.

Actually it’s quite easy – your moral conscience is wrong – and since abortion is a settled issue in Canada the Liberal Party of Canada won’t support any fooling around the rights of women and their autonomy.

“Trudeau tweeted his apparent response late Thursday.

The days when old men get to decide what a woman does with her body are long gone. Times have changed for the better. #LPC defends rights.
— @JustinTrudeau”

Times have definitely changed for the better . I’m scoring one for Trudeau on this issue.
