Montreal Simon: Has Rex Murphy Finally Left the CBC?

For years I have tried to avoid watching the CBC National on Thursdays so as to avoid the At Issue panel.For it was always a Con clown show under Big Daddy Mansbridge, and judging from what I've seen so far, will remain that way under the very Con-friendly Rosemary Barton.A horror show of dead pundits ...

Montreal Simon: Benjamin Perrin and the Murky Case of Jason Kenney

You may remember Benjamin Perrin, the PMO lawyer who worked for Stephen Harper at the height of the Duffy Affair.But who later turned against the Con regime declaring that it had lost the moral authority to govern.Well now he's taking aim at one of that regimes most infamous members. Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Continuing Adventures of the Annoying Oil Pimp Brad Wall

Canada's premiers have made more progress in the last few months than they made in the almost ten years Stephen Harper ruled this country.And they do have good reason to celebrate.But there is always one party pooper, and it would have to be Brad Wall. The grubby little oil pimp from Saskatchewan, who spent much of that ...

Montreal Simon: Is Pollution From The Oil Sands Killing People In Three Provinces?

It was thirty three degrees in Toronto today, and as usual when it gets that hot a smoggy haze covered the city.A blanket of pollution caused by the six million people who live in the Greater Toronto Area, and all their cars.But did you know that same amount of pollution is put out every day by this ...

Montreal Simon: Has Preston Manning Finally Lost His Marbles?

For years Preston Manning has been able to maintain a thin veneer of respectability. By posing as the slightly dotty elder statesman of the Reform rednecks of Alberta.But ever since his Harperite cult was defeated in the last election, that image has started to fray along the edges.Three weeks ago he accused Justin Trudeau of fuelling Western ...

Montreal Simon: Justin Trudeau, the Oil Pimp, and the Carbon Trap

Well it was a brave attempt. Get the Premiers together in one room to talk about climate change.But when the meeting was over there was little to celebrate. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the provincial premiers emerged from their meeting in Vancouver to say they are working toward a national climate change plan that includes an ...

Montreal Simon: Rona Ambrose and the Con Pipeline Hysteria

By the way Rona Ambrose and the Con zombies have been clamouring for the Energy East pipeline to be built NOW, you might think that if it isn't we're all doomed.Even though that's nonsense. And considering the state of the planet one might argue that the opposite is the case.So I'm glad to see that Justin Trudeau ...

Montreal Simon: The Oily Madness of the Con Queen Rona Ambrose

If Rona Ambrose doesn't stop viewing her job as interim Con Queen AND the new chief spokeswoman for Big Oil, sooner or later somebody is going to tell her she should go pump gas for them.Because every Question Period, no matter what's happening in the country and the world, she leads off with some kind of ...

Montreal Simon: Rex Murphy: Who Needs An Environmental Review?

In my last post I argued that the CBC should fire the Con clown Rex Murphy, for promoting the Energy East pipeline.While being paid by Big Oil to give speeches glorifying their dubious achievements.And for attacking Justin Trudeau, and acting like Rona Ambrose's spokesman, on the CBC's flagship news show The National.Well now in the National ...

Montreal Simon: Justin Trudeau and the Erasing of the Harper Legacy

As you know I really like this image of Justin slowly but surely demolishing Stephen Harper's foul legacy.And today he took another step in that direction. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau​ says his job is to look out for Canada's best interests and not act as a "cheerleader" for various pipeline projects as the previous Conservative government ...

Montreal Simon: Now Will the CBC Finally Fire Rex Murphy?

It couldn't have been a more jarring contrast. While negotiators in Paris worked desperately to put the finishing touches on a historic climate change deal. And prepared to celebrate its successful conclusion.Back in Toronto, the Con clown and climate change denier Rex Murphy was clearly not pleased.Mounting his Petromedia Postmedia pulpit, to blow hot air out of every ...

Montreal Simon: Brad Wall and the Attack of the Oil Pimps

As I told you yesterday, those of us who live in Central Canada are under attack by the wild eyed oil pimp Brad Wall.Who says if we don't accept his West-East pipeline, he'll cut off our equalization payments and leave us freezing in the dark.And although it's going to feel like forty degrees tomorrow we are ...

Montreal Simon: The Day Stephen Harper Helped Destroy the Planet

I hate to admit it, but it seems I was tragically wrong. Stephen Harper did play a major role at the G7 summit after all.He took a reasonable proposal to fight climate change, before it changes the world beyond recognition.And helped turn it into a plan which will almost certainly torch the planet.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Great Desperate War on Terror. Again

Nothing could tell us more about the dilapidated state of the Con regime, than Stephen Harper's absurd attempt yesterday to crank up the Great Terrorist Menace.For there he was at yet another staged photo-op, with his travelling "Protecting Canadians" sign, trying to make Canadians believe that our country is besieged by hordes of dangerous terrorists or tourists.In ...

Montreal Simon: More Con Lies: Vancouver Oil Spill Worse Than Estimated

As I'm sure you know by now, I never believed what Cons like James Moore and Greg Rickford had to say about that oil spill in Vancouver's English Bay.Especially when they and the Harper Coast Guard said that only about 3,000 litres of toxic bunker had leaked out of that freighter, and that all but ...

Montreal Simon: The BC Oil Spill and the Con Clown James Moore

It couldn't have been a more monstrous or absurd sight.A day after a ship leaked about 3,000 litres of bulk oil into Vancouver's beautiful English Bay, And a few hours after the province's premier and the city's mayor blasted the slow federal response.The monstrous Con beluga James Moore broke through the oily sheen to spout off at ...

Now the wheels are falling off their monster trucks, and ...

Montreal Simon: What Would You Tell Stephen Harper If He Tried to Shake Your Hand?

It's a horrible thought, and it could only happen in a nightmare.But what if you were wandering through a deathly dreamscape, and suddenly there was Stephen Harper, offering to shake your hand?What WOULD you say to him?And while that could never happen to me, because I'd rather cut off my hand than shake his, or ...

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper’s Sinister Plan to Jail Pipeline Protesters

You think Stephen Harper might have learned his lesson.

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Oily Road to Disaster

He was warned, but Stephen Harper wouldn't listen. Warned that he should not put so many economic eggs in one oily basket.He was warned that the future would be green, or there would be no future. So it made no sense to turn us into a tarry petro state, and even less sense to torch the ...

Montreal Simon: BREAKING: Russian Ship Threatens BC Coast Again

Well it looks as if Stephen Harper has jumped the gun again. For this morning he tweeted this: Thank you to the @CCG_GCC's Gordon Reid and others for the great work they are doing off the coast of the Haida Gwaii off the coast of BC.— Stephen Harper (@pmharper) October 18, 2014 After it looked ...
