Montreal Simon: The Day Andrew Scheer Ran From The Media

It was one of the most bizarre actions ever by a Canadian political leader, and definitely the most cowardly.Andrew Scheer was at a newser yesterday, trying to criticize AND claim the credit for Justin Trudeau's tax changes. And needless to say was already looking like an idiot.When just about ten minutes into the newser, a reporter asked a question about Scheer's ...

Montreal Simon: The Resurrection of Kellyanne Conway

I'm sure you remember how Kellyanne Conway seemed to be everywhere after Donald Trump's election victory.Offering the novice president advice, or acting as his mouthpiece on CNN and other TV networks.But after a while she became a little too comfortable in the Oval Office… And some began to believe the job had gone to her ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Con’s Alt Right Candidate

One week ago, I wrote about how Andrew Scheer had given his blessing to a certain candidate in a by-election to replace Rona Ambrose.Even though that candidate, Dane Lloyd, was less qualified than some of the other ones in that race.And had once called feminists "feminazis."Well now it turns out that Lloyd has a few other dubious ...

Montreal Simon: Is Andrew Scheer Canada’s Milo Yiannopoulos?

In my last post I looked at how the creepy social conservative Andrew Scheer was accusing the Trudeau Liberals of "intolerance," for refusing to accept his nomination of Rachael Harder as chair of the Committee on the Status of Women.Claiming that he was surprised and shocked that Harder's candidacy was rejected just because she doesn't accept ...

Babel-on-the-Bay: It is time to fire Bill Morneau, Justin.

Bill Morneau has a straight-forward job. As complex as the Finance Department might appear to the average Canadian, the Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre has the credentials that say he should be capable of handling the finance portfolio. He is also considered to be a generally good guy. It is really too bad that ...

Montreal Simon: Are the Scheer Cons Becoming the Trump Party?

I've been having so much fun enjoying the dying days of summer that I haven't spent much time in my political observatory, scanning the stars, and trying to figure out where this country is going.And the polls haven't helped since they have been all over the place. First the Liberals were ahead, then another poll suggested the ...

As we all know, Andrew Scheer likes to claim that he's a godly man, with a "positive" message for Canadians, or Conadians.And not long ago he asked those Conadians what issues they would like him to focus on when Parliament returned. And although one might think that they had told him to focus on his phony tax scam, judging ...

Montreal Simon: Polls Wars: Who Is More Popular The Cons Or The Liberals?

I realize that a poll is just a snapshot in time, and that all of them come with a margin of error.But trying to figure out who is doing better these days, Andrew Scheer's Cons or Justin Trudeau's Liberals, is getting to be almost impossible.For first there was a Forum poll five days ago that suggested that ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the New Reform Party

Andrew Scheer likes to describe himself as a new generation leader, but like everything else about him that claim couldn't be more fraudulent.For instead of leading his Cons out of the darkness of the Harper years, he's taking them back to the cowboy days of the Reform Party.And he just can't seem to do anything ...

Babel-on-the-Bay: ‘Chuckles’ cheers the cheaters.

There are two types of people who take advantage of Canada’s tax laws and form private corporations.

It is this second group that is so delighted that Conservative Opposition ...

Montreal Simon: Why the Con’s Phony Tax Revolt Is Doomed to Fail

Montreal Simon: Exposed: The Con Tax Scam to Fool Canadians

Northern Reflections: Mr Positive?

When Andrew Scheer was elected leader of the Conservative Party, he promised that he would promote a “positive message.” Andrew Coyne writes that, so far, he hasn’t been very positive: As Parliament resumes, we’ve yet to see much of that vaunted positivity from Scheer. He has let it be known his party will be focused ...

Montreal Simon: The Cons and the Big Fake Tax Scandal

Michael de Adder is one of my favourite Canadian cartoonists, a guy I admire a lot even if I don't always agree with his political views.But sadly this cartoon is both disappointing and appalling.Not just because it demonizes an attempt to make taxation fairer in this country.But also because like so many other Canadians, de ...
