Justin’s Intellectual Disadvantage
Well, that was an interesting speech our Prime Minister gave in Davos, wasn’t it? From the Liberal PR team’s standpoint, it was a hit, complete with money quote: Canada was mostly known for its resources. I want you to know … Continue reading

How To Prepare for 2019
I figure two months is enough time for everyone to get used to the idea of Prime Minister Trudeau 2.0. (How do you know you’re used to it? When you’re not constantly thinking about how Stephen Harper would’ve done things … Continue reading

What’s A “Merit-Based” Senator?
Justin Trudeau’s latest campaign promise pretty much describes the typical Liberal campaign promise: it sounds good, but it’s also too vague to be taken seriously. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is promising to reform Senate appointments and introduce an “open, non-partisan, … Continue reading

About Last Night . . .

So Why Is Warren Kinsella Linking To An Anti-Justin Ad?
Okay, I do get that most of my audience would publicly declare that they wouldn’t give Warren Kinsella’s blog the time of day. Not surprising, given his normal anti-Tory stance. However, one of Mr. Kinsella’s virtues is that, when he … Continue reading

Yes, Iggy’s Back. And No, You Shouldn’t Yawn

Why Sell Justin?

Justin Trudeau’s Good Luck
“A lousy week,” opines The Globe and Mail. “Canada’s first war casualty,” notes The Star’s Chantal Hébert. And no question about it: the downside of the Liberal Party leader’s current image strategy has finally caught up with him. And yet … Continue reading
