PP will win with Queen Romana as Deputy Prime Minister in 2025.
They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Nah, she was ideologically birthed in your country (Qanon), so we should ship her back there for you lot to deal with. LOL

I doubt PP has the credibility to pull it off, but stealing support from the Bloc wouldn't be very hard w the right messaging.

Trudeau is more likely to want to be the guy who stepped aside for Canada's first elected female PM than lead another minority gov, but I can't quite agree it's a lock for him to step aside.


On the one hand with enough vote splitting the Cons could win in a general election.

At the same time, I feel PP would mobilize the rest of the country to vote against him.

And he has 2 further years to solidify the opposition to vote against him by acting pretty much like he's always acted.

Hell, this guy has been a politician, on our taxpayer dime, since he was 25 years old...and even back then people like Rick Mercer frequently ripped him a new asshole for saying and doing asinine shit.

Well Trudeau made Monday a Federal holiday, but the rest of it was up to the provinces and of course Douggie (who likely got a slew of panicked calls from his corporate and business lobbies) has decided that no, we do not get the day off. Our license plates say "Ontario, open for business" FFS.

I wish I was surprised. And if this happened BEFORE the most recent election, he 1000% would have given it off too, you just know it.

Anyways, the real point here is this:

If we're going to go through the charade of having a governor general, the queen/king on our money, laws needing royal ascent, and covering security costs for when they visit...then the taxpayers deserve the charade of a day off to mourn.

Otherwise let's do away with this nonsense and maybe save a couple bucks on our taxes.

Fucks sake.

Oh and for funsies, here's Angry Milhouse having his "Ben Shapiro VS Andrew Neil" stupidity moment on live TV.

https://www.ipolitic...news-conference

For reference the guy who spoke up is David Akin a DEEPLY Conservative writer (who has written for most of the right wing newspapers and quite often rips at Trudeau and the Liberals)...so PP calling him a "liberal heckler" is about as much proof as you need that PP will call you "the enemy" for daring to question him on any topic...

The sad part in no matter how far into far right territory PP takes the Conservatives, there is still a substantial contingent that will follow them simply because there's no one else on that side of the field to follow.

Wholly expected CAQ victory in Quebec. No major surprises, a few minor ones...
Montreal remains a blue Liberal island in a sea of CAQ (heehee see what i did there?) with spots of Solidaire in a few high immigrant pop. areas. The Solidaire's 11 seats is interesting to me because their entire platform came across as 'we're all about Quebec just not as racist as those other guys', i expected them to do slightly better, esp after CAQ effectively putting Anglophones and immigrants on notice they are not their friends.
The PQ are decimated even further... three seats. Given CAQ's scary effective assimilation of the separatiste agenda, i'm surprised they managed even that many. No surprise at all is the Quebec Conservative party with a heaping 0... making anti masking their main platform was never going to overcome the name association or chip away at any of the others.
Interesting days ahead in my other province.
