Following – a very good reason never to elect communist thugs:
“…Ramsey, another of the committee’s vice-chairs, said that Peterson is “strongly on the wrong side of history,” claiming his views on gender identity and Islamophobia are “inflammatory and dangerous.” He has repeatedly criticized the word “Islamophobia,” saying it’s “ill-defined” and is “not a word with integrity.” He originally came to prominence for balking at legislation to add gender identity and orientation to the Canadian Human Rights Act, and refused to use preferred pronouns for trans students, arguing it was a form of compelled speech. Peterson did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.”
In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, Morgane Oger, trans-activist and the Vice President of the British Columbia NDP, released a Friday-night blogpost condemning Jessica Yaniv for accusations of sexual impropriety that have been waged against her by numerous women and girls.
You spelled ogre wrong.
Just ahead of the Alberta election, NDP Premier Rachel Notley has stated that she will protect the identities of two NDP MLAs involved in sexual misconduct claims to “maintain the privacy” of the victims.
On Tuesday, the NDP presented their plan to put the health of people and the environment first by calling for a ban on single-use plastics by 2022, as part of a broader Waste Reduction Strategy. When it comes to combatting plastic pollution, Justin Trudeau’s inaction won’t get the job done.
Shocking news about Rachel Notley’s NDP on the eve of the Alberta election campaign — we believe we have identified the two government MLAs who were investigated and disciplined by Notley for sexual misconduct — a secret she had been keeping from the public for months.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said he was “disgusted” by the rhetoric of his fellow candidates at a Burnaby South byelection debate after hearing their answers to a question about refugee resettlement.
So is it Jagmeet or Justin for the crown of Canada’s Ocasio-Ortez?
NDP shifts position on ‘sensitive’ Venezuela issue despite differences inside party
OTTAWA — In the midst of public pressure, the federal NDP offered its clearest position yet on the evolving situation in Venezuela Tuesday, distancing itself from Canadian labour groups who appear sympathetic to authoritarian president Nicolas Maduro.
Foreign affairs critic Helene Laverdiere told the National Post that she speaks for her party when she says she’s “comfortable” with Canada recognizing a new, interim president in Juan Guaido. But it has proved a murky issue for the NDP to navigate.
Maduro is a thug and has to go but the Justin and Jaggy show is just silly posturing, also costly to tax payers thanks to Trudeau’s largesse with our money.
The Rule of Three can be applied to everything from creative writing to predicting celebrity deaths. It also works in polling. One poll can be an anomaly, two might be a coincidence — but three polls start to look like a trend.
For federal New Democrats in Quebec, that trend is looking grim — setting the party on course for a return to the days when it held no seats in the province and had dim hopes of winning any.
Singh Sank Sunk
He’s back! Svend Robinson will be the NDP candidate for Burnaby North-Seymour in this fall’s federal election. He looks good at 66, brimming with comeback vigour. His ostensible motivation for returning to politics is concern over climate change and the affordable housing crisis. But he has not denied that his real ambition — a realistic one considering Jagmeet Singh’s failure to advance his party’s fortunes — is the NDP leadership.
From 1979 until 2004, Robinson went from strength to strength within the NDP. Suddenly, his career imploded over his theft of a valuable ring, an action he attributed to mental illness.
If there was an award for “Political Party in the Process of Losing its Way,” New Democrats would run away with the nominations.
They have a leader who has failed to impress and who they may or may not want to win his byelection for a seat in Parliament. The former leader is now a political analyst who seems to specialize in noting the failures of his successor. They hold power in two important provinces, but the respective premiers are virtually at war with one another. And the party’s standing going into this year’s election is, to say the least, unencouraging.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is calling on the Liberal government to abandon its decision to side with the U.S. and Brazil over the crisis in Venezuela — hours after two NDP candidates and one MP came out with much stronger statements condemning Ottawa’s move as failing to stand up for Venezuelans.
Singh issued the short statement outlining his position Thursday after NDP MP Niki Ashton and candidate Jessa McLean joined candidate Svend Robinson in attacking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government for making common cause with the Trump administration and the right-wing government of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil over Venezuela.
We knew we could count on him.
Abandon Trans Mountain if consultations fail to satisfy all Indigenous stakeholders, says Singh
Jagmeet Singh says the federal government should be willing to terminate the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline if consultations do not end in “partnership” and “buy-in” from all the communities along the route.
“They can’t say that they want to build something and say it’s going to be built, and then on the other side say, ‘We’re going to meaningfully consult with communities.’ That is not meaningful consultation if you’ve already decided the outcome,” the NDP leader said in a wide-ranging interview to air on CBC’s The National this Sunday night.
This is a significant escalation in the Crazy Race between Justin and Singh.
He’s been called young, charismatic, dapper… We can now add clueless to the list of adjectives used to describe NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.
I plead guilty: that’s a rude headline you just read above this article.
It probably stings New Democrats who are knocking on doors in South Burnaby trying to get Jagmeet Singh a seat in Parliament.
It’s also painful for those who worked so hard to help Singh become NDP leader only 14 months ago, helping him break the colour barrier for leaders of major parties.
I doubt it will make a difference one way or another.
