Justin Trudeau and the Farcical Youth Summit Protest

I have to admit it was a great photo-op, and a sure way to get the attention of the Con media.

A small group of demonstrators at the CLC's Young Workers Summit turning their backs on Justin Trudeau. 

"Honour your promises!" hollered some in the crowd, as event moderators tried to keep the peace. "We don't have dialogue with liars!" "Shame! Shame!"

While shooting selfies of themselves, with Justin peering over their shoulders.

But although I am all in favour of young Canadians getting politically involved, and if necessary giving the Prime Minister a rough ride.

I thought their behaviour was appalling.

The Day Donald Trump Revealed His Inner Demons

As we all know, it's sometimes hard to tell whether Donald Trump is an extreme narcissist, or a clinical psychopath, or a sexual predator, or a raging maniac.

Or all of the above. 

But now we find out that on a rare occasion when Trump revealed his inner demons, they turned out to be more pathetic than frightening.

Donald Trump and Les Deplorables

I love the musical Les Miserables. I love the songs, and the way the characters  celebrate revolution.

Even if it ends badly.

Because I believe that only a revolution can save us and the world we live in.

But Donald Trump has a version of Les Miserables called Les Deplorables...

Is the Harper Party Becoming the Trump Party?

As you know I always predicted that the Con leadership race was going to be a real circus.

But who knew there would be so many candidates? Twelve and counting.

Or that it would be such a fascist circus.

For look who just joined the race.

Donald Trump and the Women Who Brought Him Down

With only fifteen days to go before the U.S. election, if we were on a plane this would be about the time when the pilot announces "we're now on final approach."

Or if you're on the Trump plane the pilot screams "Mayday!! Mayday!! Only God can save us!!!! 

Hillary Clinton has vaulted to a double-digit advantage in the inaugural ABC News 2016 election tracking poll, boosted by broad disapproval of Donald Trump on two controversial issues: His treatment of women and his reluctance to endorse the election’s legitimacy.

Unless you're Donald Trump of course, who is still screaming "MAGA!!! MAGA!!! My campaign is not nosediving!!!!"

The Dangerous Demonization of Justin Trudeau

It's a strange thing about Justin Trudeau. He may be the most popular Prime Minister in recent Canadian history, and a nice guy.

But nobody is hated and demonized by some Canadians as much as he is, and now that hatred is out of control.

For what else can explain that some crazy from the Green Party should throw pumpkin seeds at Trudeau.

Donald Trump, the Anti-Lincoln, and the Nightmarish Election

There are now only sixteen days to go before the U.S. election, but they promise to be   some of the scariest days of our lives. 

For Donald Trump and his Trumplings are still a nightmare in progress.

And there was Trump yesterday, on what he called the "hollowed ground" of Gettysburg.

Where the great Abraham Lincoln so famously tried to heal the wounds of a nation.

Delivering the anti-Gettysburg address.

Michael Sona and the Robocall Scandal

I'm sure you remember Michael Sona, the young Con operative who was the only person ever convicted in the Robocall Scandal.

Well now he's out of jail, talking to Michael Harris.

Still proclaiming his innocence.

Gord Downie, Chanie Wenjack, and the We Matter Project

This weekend will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Chanie Wenjack, the Ojibway boy who ran away from a residential school, only to die of hunger and exposure.

The boy Gord Downie, who is also dying, has made it his last project to remember.

You know, this boy...

Justin Trudeau and the Electoral Reform Farce

Yesterday I celebrated the one-year anniversary of the day Justin Trudeau brought down the Con regime, after a decade of darkness.

Only to be reminded how fragile was that victory.

And how desperately the Con media are to return us to the nightmare we escaped.

And to try to destroy Justin.
