Third place finish will wipe out Liberals

We are into the final month of the longest and closest federal election campaign in modern Canadian political history.

As it wears on, watch for fatigue to set in and for Thomas Mulcair or Justin Trudeau — the rookies in this race as the national leaders of their parties — to make a game-changing gaffe.

Facing the real possibility of an NDP or Conservative minority government, Trudeau and the Liberals will be forced to try and break from the pack with a hail-mary pass.

    Does this mean that one of them will actually go off script and tell the truth ?

    • Not likely.

        Someone here the other day commented that Trudeau irritated them because he was speaking joual.
        It’s taken me a while to put something together.
        Mulcair’s campaign ads say that he is the second oldest of nine kids and he tries to show that he is the polished, steady reasonable French candidate from humble beginnings.
        He’s the anti-Trudeau.
        And Trudeau, the rich kid, is over compensating for this by acting like he isn’t what he is by speaking joual in a the same way that Hillary adopts a Southern accent when convenient or when Obama drops his g’s and starts talkin’ about folks.
        Trudeau is fake and Quebeckers know it.
        Liberal’s are soon to get nastier.

    What would really be groovy man is; waking up Oct 20 with a Harper majority, NDP a distant second and the Greens with 3 seats to the Liberals one. I could even put up with the drunk american chick if she gets more seats than the dauphin.

    • Shebel

      If that happens I will QUIT—something or other

    • I think fear will move voters into one direction and that direction is not a Liberal one. Trudeau has no ruddy idea what he is doing and his handlers have no idea how to make him credible.

      People may not like Harper because they are tofu-eaters but they won’t put their money in the hands of a trustifarian.

      • WalterBannon

        i am not so confident

        • David Murrell

          Agreed. I hope I’m wrong, but I forsee a repeat of what happened in Alberta. It is taken me a while, but I have reached the “acceptance” stage of the inevitable Harper defeat.

          • Censored_EG

            I reluctantly agree with you, David. Best case scenario is a Harper minority government with the NDP the opposition. Fingers crossed for this, but too much immigration may permanently damage the Conservatives in this country.

        • Be confident. One is seeing it now. Justin Trudeau has no idea how to handle money. Oh, sure, his fan girls may vote for him but when others hear “deficits”, they think something else.

  • Dear Santa,

    this is what I would like for Christmas: a pony, a Hello Kitty pancake maker, and for the Liberals to lose so badly that they retreat into the Ork-lands from whence they came.

    In gratitude, I leave you this offering of cookies and milk.

    If you wish me to eat them , make no sign.

    Thy will be done.

    • WalterBannon

      what i want for Christmas is to be proven wrong in my atheists beliefs, by witnessing god come down from heaven and bring his wrath down upon the Muslims, wiping them from the face of the planet, and then for good measure striking down the global warming nutters, then pronouncing that we should “wise up and get our shit together, and stop listening to fools and celebrities”, just before he departs back for heaven with one final word of advice, “cast out the socialists for they are evil”.

        Well, that sounds like the Old Testament God.
        It seems that he could be really vindictive but I think he was just suffering from job burnout.
        And he rectified that in the New Testament by learning how to delegate to Jesus.

      • infedel

        That sums it up — leave cookies.

      • Give it time. I’m sure He’s got something worked out.

    • mauser 98

      dual citizen Mulcair gets a majority you may need a Hello Kitty like this
      ..we will be standing in line for toilet paper

  • Bataviawillem

    I wonder, would all 3 candidates have a private jet with there name on it?

  • David Murrell

    I am not that familiar with writer Jim Warren, but he must be working too hard. For the posted piece is built on supposition on top of supposition, to get to the izzare idea that Trudeau will finish a distant third.

    Two examples from recent days:

    1. During the debate Harper off-handedly made use of the term “old stock Canadians”, in a harmless way, yet both CBC News and the Globe and Mail went after Harper. Only an unhinged anti-Harperite would find fault with the use of the term, but thi is how low the media cartel have sunk.

    2. There was a poll showing Trudeau 11 points behind in his own riding of Papeneau. (Blaze posted this earlier). So the pro-Liberal Globe and Mail published a piece from ultra-pro-Liberal Joan Bryden, of the Canadian Press, attacking the poll! Bryden, in her piece, claimed that the NDP were conspiring to put out a fake poll in order to dishearten Liberal voters, and steal them as anti-Harper strategic voters. Once the Canadian Press starts cheerleading for Trudeau, one knows he has a good chance to win.

    The fix is in. The dominant corporate media establishment desparately wants Harper to lose. And he will. And Trudeau has a good a chance as any to win this thing.

    There will be suicide attempts at the Toronto Star if this happens.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That gives me even more reason to hope……

    • David Murrell

      Not that bad thing, to think about it.
