Trudeau comeback? Don’t bet on it

Vindicated at last! I’ve spilled a lot of ink arguing to Canadians that Justin Trudeau isn’t the droid they’re looking for. Finally they seem to be coming around to the same conclusion, given that the Liberals are now placing third in select polls.

Beginning in early 2013 I argued that he wasn’t even the right guy for the Liberals, let alone for Canada as a whole. Marc Garneau went to space, dammit! They don’t just give that job to any ol’ drama teacher on the west coast.

After all, Trudeau’s closest contribution to the final frontier is saying “we have to rethink elements as basic as space and time.”

  • I now people are fearful that he might get in but I don’t think so. Whatever wins the Liberals may get in October, I doubt they will include the highest office of the land.

        Hopefully we don’t vote with our vaginas……but it is true in all elections women, may I say very stupid women, vote on the candidate with the best hair. hey, I hate it, but there it is.

          I voted with my dick and then I married her.

      • Leave Justin and Gerald Butts out of this!

    • I hope so. It does not seem possible that the electorate could be all mad.

      • It takes him ages to answer a question and even longer to come up some policies. Not that his supporters care because they are voting for his follicles, not his plans.

        hairwise, only half mad.

    Trudeau comeback? He hasn’t even been there.

    Leaders define themselves by the beginning months of when they first become leaders. Even ads do that as well. I am not a liberal or social democratic NDP supporter, but the only thing that would make me vote for any of the three big parties again is if they changed their views on democratic reform, direct democracy, foreign policy, honesty in government, accountability, transparency and the economy. To tell you the truth no party has the guts to stand up against the party machine and money in politics, which I believe are the two biggest problems impacting politics today. The other ones are secondary issues, but voters really have their hands tied in elections. They are too busy and refuse to ever want anything better. When I spoke with someone in the minor party movement during the Toronto Centre by-election, I said that the big networks already defined the campaign as being a fight between the Liberals and the NDP. Right there, they made the election about the big parties and narrowed the field. There were 11 other candidates right there. That alone shows how rigged our democracy truly is. How else are we the people supposed to ever change this system? The media plays a huge part in guaranteeing democracy in a certain direction. The same with even the leadership. Either it is a game or intentional.

    • Billy Bob Thornton – This clip illustrates the state of how broken our democracy is in Canada, and the fact that the major party movement are oligarchs and not democrats. In a true democracy anyone would win. Media would be independent and never choose ideology but only report the facts which means the stories. The fact is I saw firsthand how poor the Toronto-Centre by-election unfairly treated the 11 other candidates. The media and the major parties just work for themselves instead of all Canadians. And they live and are pigs at the trough with taxpayer money. We should be outraged. Sadly, Trudeau, Mulcair and Harper all agree with winner take all democracy which is not parliamentary and does not follow the Westminster tradition.

    The odds might be changing, but I’m still betting he will be our next PM. Never underestimate the power of a compliant press and a low information voter. Besides, just look at that hair!

    Justin Trudeau doesn’t interest me. What _does_ interest me is who the current movers and shakers and bagmen in the Liberal Party are. [true for all the parties, in fact]. However from the looks of things, those Liberal backroom boys are as clueless and irrelevant as their figurehead. The one good thing the Liberals will achieve in the next election is to take votes away from the NDP. Now if only the movers and shakers of the CPC would smarten up.
