Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Oil Is Not A Four Letter Word

Coal is a four letter word, however. Perhaps Wall is a bit touchy about fossil fuels because Saskatchewan produces more greenhouse gases per person than any other Canadian province [link added], and is one of only three provinces whose emissions have risen since 1990. The province contains only 1 per cent of the country’s population, ...

Alberta Politics: Independence Day: an excellent moment to remember Stephen Harper is no ‘Tory’

PHOTOS: Today is Independence Day in the United States, and also in Texas, where this photo was snapped. Below: Stephen Harper, not a Tory, unlike John A. Macdonald, below him, who was. Below both of them, a Hessian soldier gets ready to load up and shoot at an American insurgent. Only the Hessians’ pants were ...

The Tory Pirate - Politics & Policy: June 26th: The Day Canada Was Robbed

The ‘c’ stands for corruption, corporatism, cowardice, and caged. Oh, and copyright… but I repeat myself. If a government employee were to go to your home and steal the flyers from thenewspaper on your front step I am sure you would be very upset. It’s not because theflyers were particularity valuable or that you ever intended to ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Difficult To Talk About, Important To Try

This is a difficult subject to talk about, because highlighting it could easily be viewed as hypocritical. In my defense, I’m not defending Trudeau because I want him elected, and I’m not attacking the Conservatives over this because I think they’re unfit to govern. I just think that using propaganda videos created by ISIS is ...

OpenMedia.ca: iPolitics: It’s time for a social media rebellion, including Conservative voters, to #KillC51!

 A version of this piece from principled conservative activist and OpenMedia community member Connie Fournier was originally published by iPolitics. The government’s unpopular Bill C-51 has finally become law, following a recent tight vote in the Senate. The vote, at 44 to 28, was closer than expected – almost all the opponents of the Bill ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: #C51 Is a Brazen Power Grab

Canadians are so trained to accept power grabs, that we didn’t fight sufficiently to stop it. The police state usually pads up behind you on cat’s paws. But this time, Harper has stabbed his finger into everyone’s chest to give us a hearty shove. This is a blatant, brazen grab for the kind of power ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: C-51 Stops a Veteran From Being a Liberal Candidate

I wondered why Peter MacKay’s Liberal challenger was quitting too, and it seems the reason was how Trudeau mishandled the C-51 “anti terrorism” vote by supporting the bad bill. Since MacKay is quitting too for other reasons, Central Nova will be a riding to watch again. Now-former LPC candidate on #C51: "a repressive act which ...

Blevkog: The real truth about reconciliation…

Is that all is good with our native peoples. I mean it would have to be if the government department tasked with providing services to them was able to lapse a billion dollars in budget over the past five years. Of course there is also another possibility, that the Conservatives just don’t care.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: ConCalls: Documentary Underway

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: This is Your Daily Economic Action Plan Reminder

Canada is not a Petrostate, I repeat, Canada is Not a Petrostate. There is no evidence that Canada places more value on oil than democracy. Remember, don’t “attack the Canadian economy” by speaking against economic activity you disagree with.

Blevkog: The miracle of birth…

It’s so thrilling to see a foundling cracking the shell for its first few pecks at freedom. (And never has a better beak been built to crack one, too!) And now, with today’s announcement, Peter MacKay marks his transition from pupa form (Canadian politician) to what I can only assume to be a fully-fledged adult ...

Blevkog: It is on… apparently

With the new round of polls in the hopper and the NDP surge from their surprising provincial victory in Alberta quantified, if it didn’t before, it looks like the national election campaigns are firmly up and running for the three major political parties. The campaign ads are beginning to appear and the editorials are getting ...

Blevkog: “It’s real – get over it”

So says ipolitics (pay wall), referring to the NDP surge that was confirmed this week by polls released by EKOS and by other groups. They go on to demonstrate that, while NDP numbers jumped dramatically with the recent Alberta provincial election results, the upsurge really began as early as February. What this graph (shown below) also ...

Blevkog: Pierre Polievre does it again…

I do, I really do. I try not to lose it. I try to keep it civil. I try to hold it together. But then this: Pierre Polievre is a fucking worm.

The Canadian Progressive: Federal NDP ahead of Conservatives and Liberals in new poll

A new poll suggests that Canadians are embracing the orange wave and seriously considering electing Canada’s first ever federal NDP government. The post Federal NDP ahead of Conservatives and Liberals in new poll appeared first on The Canadian Progressive.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Conservatives Take Their Debate Ball and Hide In A Closet

After so much effort from the Greens to ensure all Canadians can hear an inclusive debate, what the Conservatives are doing now is absurd and frustrating. So the Cons are behaving typically. Will the media let them get off? Yes, history shows. Of course, the less the Prime Minister says, the less he gets in ...

Blevkog: Pride, vanity, and puerile BS

Anyone wanna guess how much noise would be made by the Whinging Right if the Libs or NDP ever did something like this? Are the Conservatives trying to remind the electorate of Tony Clement’s gold unilingual business cards of a few years back? Are they trying to create easy-to-use election campaign ads for their opposition?

Bill Longstaff: Do conservatives believe in democracy?

Watching the Alberta election results on TV, the comments of a pundit representing the Conservative view caught my attention. The lady insisted that if the NDP won, oil companies would be closing their offices in Calgary, investment would move out of province, etc.—Armageddon waiting in the wings. Well, the NDP won, and this doesn’t seem ...
