Some promises from federal party leaders aren’t theirs to make

Some of our party leaders don’t seem to be concerned about things like National Security or the Military — things that are the responsibility of the federal government.

    They don’t appear to care about the money required to pay for all their largess-either.

    And why doesn’t the press ask about jurisdiction?

    • Clausewitz

      Because the press have never read the BNA Act either. The press is by and large a horde of brain dead followers who scavenge the land like a cloud of locusts.

        Yeah, not sure when that stopped being part of journalism. When I took print journalism about 20 years ago, history, current events, and politics were all a strong part of the curriculum. Now I would doubt they get anything under those labels unless it was just a masquerade for social justice classes.

          Back in college in 91 my roommate was taking broadcast news. She didn’t have any of that stuff. Though they did take a course on how to get an emotional response from viewers and another one on how to appear trust worthy.

            Guess that was the big difference between broadcast and print 😉

  • Ron MacDonald

    They’re pandering to their uninformed voter base.

      I have talked to some who do you like the Ndp and Liberals some say Canada is anti islam but most say its the goodies.

    Why do I get that awful feeling that something else is going on here? Lest we forget, PET tried to override jurisdictional responsibilities with the NEP. But the destruction of Canada as we know/knew it started with Pearson (the flag, the “peacekeepers” etc. )

    Poor Brian is a voice crying in the wind. Teach through Civics? Ha!! Have another drink, Brian.

    I initially mistook May for Hillary. Were they by chance separated at birth?

    What does he mean “unless” the provinces want to bankrupt themselves too? With Wynne and the rest of the current premiers, clearly they would not have a problem finding willing partners with these programs. I know what he is referring to, but with out current batch of provincial politicians, frankly the left can promise stuff out of their jurisdiction.

    Is Lizzie May losing weight, or is just deflation caused by all of the hot air that she spews?
