"At Least We're Not That Bad" and Other Potential Federal Election Slogans

In anticipation of the next federal election, the Conservatives launched an ad campaign last September with the less-than-inspiring slogan, "We're better off with Harper." No expression of grand ideas for Canada. No glorious visions for our national future.

Of course, Canadians should be proud of our history as a tolerant, multicultural nation. But this comes without the need to destroy the symbols that brought us to this proud point. Rather, we need to see ourselves as dwarfs on the shoulders of giants. For this reason, Dominion Day should be brought back.

Justin Trudeau Proves Pro-Choice Is Anti-Choice

Andrea Mrozek | Posted 07.09.2014 | Canada Politics
Andrea Mrozek

As a pro-life woman, it is certainly heartening to see the lack of receptivity to Justin Trudeau's position that pro-life candidates need not apply to be nominees for the Liberal Party. There has not been much (any?) support for this bold declaration that freedom of speech and conscience ought to be denied Liberal nominees. His position sounds extreme. But is it? In my opinion, Mr. Trudeau's remarks are a logical extension of pro-choice philosophy. In spite of the rhetoric, being pro-choice is not actually always in favour of choice. I'm not talking about the woman here; I'm talking about the developing human in the womb.

Trudeau's speech was largely the same old rhetoric you'd expect to hear from any "progressive" politician about "wanting to create a better Canada, a better world." Obviously any politician with four hundred or so students staring down at him is going to say how much the youth are important and how they should go out and vote.
