In what universe is it appropriate for a Governor General to deride people for their beliefs?

On Wednesday night, Gov. Gen. Julie Payette appeared as keynote speaker at the Canadian Science Policy Conference in Ottawa. From her podium there, she took on everyone from climate-change deniers to religious observers:

“Can you believe that still today in learned society, in houses of government, unfortunately, we’re still debating and still questioning whether humans have a role in the Earth warming up or whether even the Earth is warming up, period,” she said.

    Rex Murphy and the other journalists have better stay away from her. She has a history of beating the crap out of people. Now we know why Super Socks appointed her. She is going to be a propaganda tool for all his “Progressive” policies.

    • My first thought was ‘She looks like a female wrestler’.

      • ontario john

        Climate denier!!!

        • The long Medusa curls are a warning sign, like the rattler on a snake.

          Looks like we have a contender for a Madeleine Albright replacement.

    Absolutely nothing surprises me about Canada these days.

    The farce continues.

  • CodexCoder

    It is odd that a person who derides others for not believing that the universe originated by chance did not go into space while exercising chance as a guiding principle. Very odd indeed.

    Could use some “glowing ball” warming in Calgary today as its minus 20 with 3-4 inches of snow on the ground.

    • Cat-astrophe

      AND…Winterpeg beat the Stamps 23-5.
      Oh, the humanity…..

      • Linda1000

        Don’t care. I have been to only one Stampeders game in the last thirty years or so.

      • deplorabledave

        Calgary usually waits for the playoffs to fold. Their ahead of schedule this year. OTOH maybe its a ruse and their gonna go all the way.

      Just watched John Robson’s great documentary:

      The Environment: A True Story.

      Show the loonies like Al Gore the liars that they are.

  • Leftism is really no different than Islam. Comply or be persecuted.

    Those are very soon going to be what used to be called ‘fighting words’

  • Mr_bigstuff

    Knowing how vindictive some women can be let’s hope trudeau the vainglorious pisses her off somehow and out of spite she calls an election – I would gladly pay tax dollars to see that happen –

  • simus1

    A political engineer?
    Well she is no C. D. Howe, that is for sure.

  • marty_p

    She’s female and French Canadian = untouchable.

    • Cat-astrophe

      You sure?? I mean female…..

    • Quite literally, from my perspective.

    She is even dumber than Justine. These are the elites running our country.

    • DVult

      Think of the stupidest person you ever met. Multiply that by the largest number you can think of. They are still smarter than these bozos.

  • Thomas Henderson

    The Grits are not clueless about the role of the governor general. It is the highest and oldest office in the land and is, traditionally, to fulfill a key constitutional role as head of government above the political fray. But as champions of end-of-history global leftism, the Liberals have made a habit of appointing hacks and ideologues (usually journalists) to the post: Jeanne Sauvé, Romeo LeBlanc, Adrienne Clarkson, and Michaelle Jean to name a few.

    Our last GG, David Johnstone, understood the position very well. He was the best qualified in decades. Harper appointed him with opposition concurrence and much vetting of candidates after suffering the indecision and callowness of the Right Honorable Ms. Jean.

    Now we’re back to a shill for the Laurentian consensus. Suffering succotash, we’ve go to put up with tweety bird for five years.

    At least Super Socks will have someone to laugh with at the Remembrance Day services.

  • Reader

    It’s time for a musical interlude.

  • No one asked for Julie Payette’s opinion and no one cares for it. She, like other Liberals, believes that she is above everyone else. She is guilty of having a superiority complex and a big mouth.

    Why do we tolerate this?

  • canminuteman

    This is what happens when you let children sit at the adult table.

  • Oracle9

    The appalling and boundess arrogance of the elites.

    Where does she get off lecturing us rubes about morality, with the condescension and false righteousness of her own religious cult?

    The liberals will go down big time, and very soon.
