Right, one worked and is probably still working for it and the other is Justin Trudeau.
Pretty sure being Prime Minister of a country is working
Scheer wanted you to pay for his kids to go to private school and O'Toole wanted you to pay for one of his three homes and you're talking trash about JT like any of them are any different
Trudeau Derangement Syndrome is a thing right?
The biggest difference I can see between O'Toole and Trudeau when it comes to work history is that Trudeau's been the Prime Minister since 2015 while O'Toole has done that for zero years.
I talk about this with my team at work as things like which University people went to comes up (Ivy League vs lesser known things is a *big deal*) - I don't give a shit. Show me what you can do. And from what I can tell, Trudeau has figured out how to get things done and get elected which O'Toole hasn't. We can all quibble over happiness with what exactly he does once he got elected but proof is in the pudding.
Obviously, Trudeau was relatable with enough Canadians to get elected 3 times along with enough of the Liberal party to form government.
So, keep going on about what you don't like about Trudeau in that aspect of things but it means exactly zero.
This is coming from someone who didn't vote for him in the latest election.
It is if you show up
I WAS paying for those things for Scheer, get the story right. They are all politicians and they will try to get away with what they can but there is a difference.
I wonder what Erin owes on those three houses?
No but being a Trudeau Fanboy is
BLAH BLAH BLAH to tired right now to deal with all this shit.
stuff I can't think of.....
I understand - it's tiring defending the loser.
No you are far from understanding anything, it's tiring living with chronic illness's that leave me in pain 24/7 and this is just an outlet for me.
SO just because I don't have time to play with you right now. Don't worry I will be back but my head is cloudy and I don't want to go full boing on you and have you call the police I am taking a break if that's okay, we good?
Dude, take care of yourself first and foremost. Stupid internet back and forth should be looked at for what it is.
...and fun too! I'm working on a shipping a bunch of 450+Wh LiPos across the country. End user wants them there by the first of next week and I just had to tell them he'd have to drain them to below 30% - they were all fully charged. And they can't go pax cargo.
sweet baby Jesus give me that contract if it ever comes up again and I’ll handle all the logistics
When’s the last time a blue collar regular joe has occupied any high office in any major country? When’s the last time one has run?
i will vote for an inanimate carbon rod in the next election [/simpsons reference]
In Rod we trust!
He's got more medical experience than the guy he's replacing. Doesn't look like the position requires it.
and this doesn't bother you in the slightest that a veterinarian holds this particular position?
Well, at first appearance it seems a bit off; then again, here's his predecessor's bio. I don't get the warm fuzzies but it doesn't bother me a whole lot either.
From 2016 to 2020, he was President of the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada where he led the reimagining of the NRC with employees to encourage research excellence and collaboration, and to deliver innovative solutions to address Canada's economic, social and environmental challenges.
Prior to that role, he was Associate Secretary at the Treasury Board Secretariat. In addition, as Assistant Deputy Minister, Strategic Policy and other positions at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), he worked on national science and research and economic policy. Mr. Stewart also supported industry and university research through funding programs at ISED and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, and as Assistant Vice-President of Research at Dalhousie University.
call me crazy, but if you are leading an organization (especially one in the Health field) - your credentials should be relevant.
No it doesn't. Sheep Liberals Meh... save your horse med jokes I am vaccinated and believe in science.
And this doesn't seem to bother the rest of the liberal voters out there either. Canada just need electoral reform a nice Collage of Electorates would be nice and has a nice ring to it, something to even the playing field across the board.
You know that if we did that it would have resulted in a liberal majority in 2019 and again last month, right?
At least he would be able to completely fuck up the country all at once and get it out of the way and then give the next guy a chance to undo the mess and make a whole new mess.
I was not saying that was what we should do I was just saying the current system needs changing but don't don't know enough about them to make a choice so I just picked the 'Merican one
I agree with you. Electoral college isn’t the answer but proportional representation is.
Maybe that's what I need to look into. I am not on top of this at the moment, not a priority at the moment but will look into when I get a chance.
This just caught my eye and thought was and interesting article.
the main thing is it would basically eliminate majority governments and strategic voting. What method of PR that should be used is up for debate, but Trudeau isn’t going to change it because he’s won 2 governments that he would have otherwise lost with PR vs FPTP.
And he promised it
Didn't he again say he was open to revisiting election reform like the day before the election? I won't hold my breath
Yes, yes he did.
How about this one in the news just the other day
Former prime minister Stephen Harper says he’s proud of $15-billion arms deal with Riyadh as he prepares to visit Saudi Arabia
It's crazy how much SA gets away with because they sell lots of oil and buy lots of arms. It's gross enough that we do business with them let alone have former PMs hobnobbing with them.
