Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer Reaches For The Racist Card

A week ago I wrote that Andrew Scheer was looking a little desperate. And I'm sorry to report that since then his condition has deteriorated.And now he's even more desperate.He can't use the fake India story him and the Con media cooked up.  It died of old age, and Scheer was left looking ridiculous.Then he ...

Montreal Simon: The Day Justin Trudeau Struck Back At Andrew Scheer

For almost a year Andrew Scheer has gone after Justin Trudeau like a creature out of Hell.He has attacked him day after day after day, as only a religious fanatic and alt-right sympathizer could.He has made frothy Trudeau hate normal, he has corrupted the very soul of this country, and made us look and smell more ...

Alberta Politics: Tory canoe and Trudeau too* – Liberals take advantage of Jason Kenney’s “Canada is broken” Tweet

Alberta Opposition Leader Jason Kennedy’s now famous “Canada is broken” Tweet a week ago may turn out to have been the symbolic starting point of the 2019 federal election campaign. Canada is broken. https://t.co/7tVwbAKPmc — Jason Kenney (@jkenney) April 15, 2018 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his federal Liberals were quick to jump on the ...

Montreal Simon: The Total Humiliation Of Mad Max Bernier

As you know Maxime Bernier likes to portray himself as the hero of the Mad Max movies.Or at least the extreme libertarian version of that series.Where the lonesome hero wanders through an apocalyptic landscape dodging Big Government agents who are always trying to tax Canadians to death, or control their minds.But I see Bernier as the ...

Montreal Simon: Why Andrew Scheer Is Looking So Desperate

Oh dear, poor Andrew Scheer has that desperate look on his face again. And no wonder, everything is going wrong.Last night his "emergency pipeline debate" went nowhere, after all he could do was shout "Mr Trudeau build that pipeline!!!!"Which seemed a bit ridiculous, considering the situation, especially since the Prime Minister is in Europe.So most of ...

Montreal Simon: How Andrew Scheer Was Duped By An India Story. Again

Ever since Justin Trudeau's trip to India was made to look like a disaster by the shabby stooges in the Con media, Andrew Scheer has gone crazy with Indian fever.He's still trying to make the India story sound like it's the biggest story in Canada. Even though it died of old age weeks ago… But so desperate ...

Montreal Simon: The Scheer Trumplings and the Social Media War

During the last election campaign I used to have fun portraying Stephen Harper under assault by our superior social media.And that superiority helped us bring down the Harper regime, by exposing their lies, helping to get out the vote, and by humiliating Great Closet Leader over and over again. I loved it, there's nothing I like ...

Montreal Simon: The Ghastly Return of Stephen Harper

I know this may be hard to believe, but after attacking Stephen Harper almost every day for almost ten years, my memories of him and his grim decade of darkness had started to fade.And I almost felt sorry for him. After all I said to myself, he's not the Great Leader he once was. People ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Fake Conservatives

It's easy to forget that the Con leadership race that Andrew Scheer won, was tainted by widespread allegations of vote rigging and membership fraud.And that even a few days before the final vote, Maxime Bernier was leading the other candidates, and Scheer wasn't even in contention.  But somehow he managed to cross the finishing line ahead of ...

Montreal Simon: The Humboldt Vigil and the Crassness of Andrew Scheer

I watched the vigil for the Humboldt Broncos last night, and although I'm not religious, I still found it extremely moving.For it is a very sad story, and it couldn't be more Canadian. Buses roaring through the night carrying young players to their next game many, many, miles away. And sometimes not making it.  The hockey ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: faithlessness

Ah, ye little Faith. Not that little, actually.  She’s tallish, slouching near the doors at Sun News Network, chain-smoking.  Smirking. “Troll with a tan,” someone at the erstwhile network said about her. Uncharitably, but not inaccurately.  That indeed seemed to be the whole package: a suspiciously deep, orange-ish tan, and the sleeveless Fox News mien.  ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer, Ezra Levant, and the Trumpling Question

As long as I can remember I've always considered the Cons to be more American than Canadian.And since Andrew Scheer became their leader I've often wondered whether his  party has been receiving money from some of the sinister billionaires who have been bankrolling right-wing groups all over the United States.For who can forget how he tried ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and Mr Ding Dong

You know when I stare at that picture of Andrew Scheer, even I find it hard to believe that he is a mortal threat to Canada and its values.I mean look at him.He just looks like a nerd who would embarrass this country beyond recognition if he ever became Prime Minister.A Mr Ding Dong if ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Fascist Horror of Faith Goldy

It looked like some kind of low budget religious TV program, with a host and a guest who were made for each other.Faith Goldy, the monstrous Christian Crusader and white supremacist, and Andrew Scheer, the creepy religious fanatic and alt-right sympathizer who would be Prime Minister.Sitting in one of Ezra Levant's ratty Rebel studios, all but ...

Babel-on-the-Bay: Ceding Civility in Canada.

Writing about civility in politics the other day, we never got to the situation here in Canada. Despite our Canadian reputation for civility, things have lately gone to hell in a basket. Federal and provincial politics in Canada have become noisy arguments between spoiled children. Our politicians are not working together to meet the needs ...

Alberta Politics: Reflections on Easter Sunday, 2018: There really is a war against Christianity … it’s being waged by Christians

PHOTOS: Easter Sunday shoppers at West Edmonton Mall. Is nothing sacred? Well, actually, something is: The Almighty Market, god of Canada’s state religion. Below: A brass idol to the Market God in New York City’s Wall Street district. Below that, two unchristian politicians beloved by North American Christian conservatives: Doug Ford Jr. and Donald J. ...

Montreal Simon: The Many Unholy Lies of Andrew Scheer

Andrew Scheer claims to be a great Canadian and a great Christian. Not necessarily in that order.And his Easter card has a sinister looking cross on it big enough to crucify us all.Or at least crucify those who offend him and his bloodthirsty Godzilla the most. You know, liberated women, Muslims, LGBT Canadians, environmentalists, drug users, ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer’s Nasty Dirty Little Scandal

As we all know, Andrew Scheer has been trying to keep the fake India story alive long after it rolled over and died.And recently even disrupted our parliament with an absurd and incredibly costly filibuster… Claiming that the Liberals are engaged in some kind of sinister cover-up.When the only thing sinister about about any of ...

Montreal Simon: Why Doug Ford Must Never Become Premier

As you probably know, I honestly believe that Doug Ford is unfit to lead anything, let alone the province of Ontario.And that if that brutish Con clown ever does become Premier, he might bring down the whole country.While making us look like Trumpland North, just smaller and even more ignorant. So the rest of the civilized world can laugh ...

Alberta Politics: The two faces of Jason … how’s managing simultaneous provincial & federal political campaigns going for Janus Kenney?

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer’s Shameful Contempt for Parliament

Andrew Scheer was without a doubt the worst Speaker of the House of Commons in modern Canadian history.A Speaker so biased, so incompetent, and so depraved, that he allowed his fellow Cons to make a mockery out of our Parliament.Cutting off debate, heckling and howling like beasts, stomping around like bullies, defecating on our values and ...

In This Corner: Revisiting ‘the Wimp Factor’. Will it return?

For most of the 1970s, Canada had the coolest leader in the room. His name was Pierre Trudeau, and he was undeniably the hippest, coolest, and dare I say “grooviest” leader in the world. Trudeau was elected 50 years ago, the summer of ’68, surfing a wave of ‘Trudeaumania’. Later that same year, the U.S.A. ...

Montreal Simon: Has The Con Media Handed Scheer’s Cons A Majority?

Pity poor Andrew Scheer. The Con media has stopped attacking Justin Trudeau for a moment, so they can go after the NDP's Jagmeet Singh.Which is bad for the Cons, because they want the NDP strong enough to split the progressive vote.But it doesn't really matter.The shrilly little scribblers managed to make such an absurd fuss over Trudeau's ...

Montreal Simon: The Day Justin Trudeau Made Donald Trump Look Like A Loser

For months our ratty Con media has tried to damage Justin Trudeau, and diminish his status abroad.And of course some like the miserable Andrew Scheer have gone even further… But luckily that treasonous Trumpling is only negotiating with others in his own mind.And it's just been revealed that when Justin met Donald he made the president ...
