Voters will see through Trudeau’s smoke: Harper #elxn42

We have learned Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is in favour of loosening rules on marijuana and approves of safe heroin injection sites, as well.

He’s also for wearing the niqab at citizenship ceremonies and for convicted terrorists keeping their Canadian citizenship.

Justin supports withdrawing from NATO responsibilities with allies including sending over sleeping bags instead of fighter jets. He is also opposed to the plan to purchase F-35 fighters from the United States.

    The left has to win an election eventually.
    Just please.
    Not this time.

      Is there really any difference between conservatives and liberals?
      The so-called conservatives dropped one of their campaigners in Mississauga for saying “homosexuals can be reformed”.

      • G

        Oh STFU.

        I don’t vote for a party based on social issues.
        I vote for my wallet.
        Although, I am hugely unpopular for saying that all children deserve to have a mother and a father.
        If I was campaigning for office I’d shut up about it.

        • African

          To me, social issues like morality are hugely important than my wallet. They can take all the money I earn but they should not touch my moral beliefs and norms.

    I hope the conservatives knock it off with the reefer madness and Sgt Stedenko routines, this stale war on pot will cost them votes. If Harper wanted a solid majority he could have pulled the rug out from under justin with decriminalization( it is coming) instead he puts up Rona Ambrosia as a modern day Sgt. Stedenko in tears almost, over pot. Not cool, or conducive to winning this election.

      I had this very conversation today at work.
      I said, you know, if Trudeau legalizes pot he’ll have to break the treaty we signed with the united nations that regulates narcotics.
      I also said that the price of dope would go up and the quality would go down.
      The black market would persist until government started to crack down on it.
      And governments are far more brutal at protecting their monopolies than private interests are.

        Of course the black market would persist, just like it does with heavily taxed cigarettes.

        • Clausewitz

          There’s still moonshine in the south, and screech in Nfld even though alcohol production and consumption has been legal for years. If there’s money to be made the black market will continue to exist.

        Meh. The Indians will just grow it by the ton on the reserves, and sell it cheap there.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          You mean they don’t already?

          • FactsWillOut

            Good point.

      • mobuyus

        Breaking any treaty with the united nations is a good start to better things.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I know but Liberals are always citing the ‘un’ as the most important organization in the world.
          It’s cute that suddenly the ‘un’ can be disregarded by boybearpig.

          • mobuyus

            He’ll do what chretien did on the pot file, lie about legalizing it ,get elected and then do absolutely nothing about it saying he has more important legislation to deal with. Harper could have done just that. Its 2015 not 1935 reefer madness I believe has been discredited and it is seen as a joke and this is the hill Harper wants to die on?

    • Gettingby

      The Conservative might as well support mass immigration, LGBT rights, abortion, global warming and a welfare state, look at all the potential votes…sarc

      • mobuyus

        Legal pot would be sane the items you mention are in a different class all together. Espousing outright lies about pot is no vote getter it will actually cost them votes. Chretien said he’d decriminalize it got elected then said he had more important things to worry about and did nothing. It worked for him. Handing the country to justin because you don’t like pot and you don.t know anyone that smokes it anyways seems a bit selfish.

        • FactsWillOut

          Hell, I don’t like pot, I know a few people that smoke it, and I don’t like them very much either, but criminalizing it is just crazy.

          • mobuyus

            At the Sarsfest in Toronto a number of years ago the cops were encouraged to lay off of charging people for simple possession or use, and note for future reference or action the results. The results were that at an AC-DC and Rolling Stones concert with a half million people they made 25 arrests mainly for alcohol. When the pope played the same venue for a crowd of a half million there were close to two thousand arrests mainly alcohol robbery and sexual assaults. I never advocate the use or abuse of any intoxifying substances. Though I do not drink scotch I would hope that those that do would enjoy themselves with their chosen refreshment, and enjoy themselves responsibly.

  • k1962

    Loved the last paragraph! Sums things up nicely 😉

  • Richard_Romano

    But is anyone seeing evidence that the Conservatives will win? I’m extremely worried Trudeau will get a majority. We’ll be mega-screwed if he does.

  • Maxsteele

    Early poll’s are being swamped and from speaking with the workers at the early poll stations they said they have not seen these kind of numbers in a long time. This could either mean that the communists have rallied the university students to finally get off their butts and vote (not a good thing) or the conservatives who have stayed home over the years are so scared they are showing up in droves. Please lord let it be the latter.

    • mauser 98

      ??perhaps … everyone under 30 has their brain welded to their I-Phone
      twitter up a storm but will not get off their butts… too much work to vote

    • Martin B

      The BBC reports advance polling was up 34% over the last election, and notes that masked niqab protesters were much in evidence. I hope that’s a good sign for our side:

    Depending on the poll the split seems to be 1/3 Con, 1/3 Lib, and 1/3 NDP. Doesn’t that seem to indicate that 2/3 of Canadians are lost causes. Imagine if we had a two party system…

    • V10_Rob

      If the media, the Liberal’s propaganda wing, push this assertion hard enough now, it could cause a bandwagon effect, as NDP voters jump ship.

      Or maybe it backfires, and voters take a hard, sober look at the little prince they’ve anointed.

  • FactsWillOut

    BOHICA!

  • pike bishop

    Yesterday he was going to go toe to toe with Putin. Today his uncle Fidel sends troops to Syria to bolster Russian forces.

    • mauser 98

      !! so forwarded this one

        If we are going to have WW3 (or 4) can we please have it without this mutt in the big chair.
