Montreal Simon: Brad Trost and the Shaming of Andrew Scheer

Montreal Simon: Michael Harris On The Cheating Party of Canada

As I'm sure you know Andrew Scheer, the smiling religious fanatic is trying to give himself a saintly image.Or at least portray himself as an aw shucks, gee whiz, Jimmy Stewart version of a priest or a farm boy.So there he was the other day at the Press Gallery dinner, chugging milk out of a ...

Montreal Simon: Andrew Scheer and the Theocon Conspiracy

It was a bizarre sight, and a deeply disturbing one.Andrew Scheer preparing to address his caucus for the first time as leader. Looking like a minister about to deliver a sermon, or lead his Con flock to the Promised Land.But still claiming that he is not a religious fanatic.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Day The Cons Became the Reform Party Again

When I saw Rona Ambrose at the Con convention giving her farewell speech, praising herself extravagantly  and bragging about how "she could kick Trudeau in the balls," I knew it was going to be a weird night.And that I was right, Ambrose has no class.But who knew the Cons would end up giving themselves, and their ...

Montreal Simon: Lisa Raitt and the Kamikaze Candidate

The hapless stooges in our corporate media like to describe Lisa Raitt as the most "moderate" candidate in the Con leadership race. The one who is so "nice" she doesn't stand a chance in that collection of racists and religious fanatics. But of course we know better. We know that all things are relative. And ...

Montreal Simon: Now Can We Call the Cons the Bigot Party?

Yesterday was the deadline for the Con leadership candidates to sign up new members. And as you can imagine, as the clock ran out on them, it was not a pretty sight. The stench of desperation hung heavy in the air, and the squealing was deafening.But at least they did manage to provide even more proof that the Cons should now ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Clown Leadership Scandal Just Got Worse

Montreal Simon: Maxime Bernier and the Red Pill Road To Ruin

For most of the Con leadership campaign, Maxime Bernier was the happy warrior or the  happy biker.Roaring down the highway selling extreme libertarianism instead of racism and bigotry like many of the other candidates.But even though that approach has served him well, and propelled him past Kellie Leitch.It seems that the boob from the Beauce is ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Clowns and the Voice In Their Heads

It was such a boring show I had to remember to keep breathing. And needless to say I couldn't watch it for more than a few minutes.

Tonight the Con leadership candidates, all fourteen of them, will converge on the Roger's Centre in Edmonton for the last debate of their long and dismal campaign. And already things are going horribly wrong. In fact, to borrow a line from the Lion in Winter, if pigs could fly there would be pork in the trees.Because for starters, ...

Montreal Simon: The Con Leadership Race Descends Into Farce

I didn't watch the latest Con leadership debate in Vancouver yesterday afternoon, for two very good reasons.One, I couldn't find it on any TV channel I get, or anywhere on the dark internet. And two, it was too nice and warm outside to waste even an hour of my life.Which turned out to be a good ...
