Trudeau Break-In: Tory MP Ryan Leef Apologizes For Twitter Joke

Trudeau Break-In: Tory MP Ryan Leef Apologizes For Twitter Joke

Commented Aug 19, 2014 at 19:23:55 in Canada Politics

“I don't always lock my door, I can't speak to when I was younger, but we didn't have a security system for a very long time. Even when we did I only remember it being activated while we slept once or twice. If you honestly ask most people who live in the suburbs whether or not they lock their doors and set an alarm while they sleep I think you'll find most don't. In fact locking doors does very little to deter an intruder.

People are blowing this way out of proportion to make a political jab and it's disgusting. It wasn't a robbery so it was likely targeted because it was Trudeau's home, unless they feel that someone was walking around the neighborhood and randomly trying doors off every house to see if one was locked.”

“Suzelle, my first question is whether you have children? My second is whether there is a survey that you got your information about how many lock their doors in the suburbs?
Many of my friends have young children and they all lock their doors when sleeping. And one is a cop. Children are vulnerable and it is our job to protect them until they can protect themselves. Sleeping with an unlocked door when one has young children is irresponsible and especially so when you are married to a party leader who can attract the wrong kind of people.
These are pretty dark days and with all the negativity the media feed us I expect that most lock their doors especially at night.”

“I'm amazed how many people are accusing Trudeau of not being able to take care of his family. My father was gone on business a lot when I was young and our family was just fine thanks. The way some people on the Globe and NP are talking I should be dead seeing as I'm female and single and apparently need a man around the house to make sure the doors are locked.”

RainRider on Aug 19, 2014 at 13:27:26

“I don't know your age or whether you are also saying you didn't lock your doors.
In the fifties when I was a kid, people rarely locked their doors. It is a different world now and Trudeau is in the spotlight as a politician which can easily put him and his family in a rather vulnerable position. Also, as a parent, I do not understand anyone leaving doors unlocked with three young children while asleep this day and age especially a family of a party leader.
Electronic security systems are easily affordable for this family but one would have to lock their doors for it to work.”

“I have two questions for Rob Ford supporters:

1) Would you vote for Rob Ford if he were anything other than a Conservative? (same platform, same guy, same way of doing things)

2) Have you ever voted anything other than Conservative?

And please don't reply with 'if he were a Liberal he wouldn't be Rob Ford or have this platform' or whatever else, that's not an answer. Also you can skip the second one if you feel it's too personal.”

“If you take a look around on the internet you will find plenty of people who hate us. You will see that parents throw their kids out of the house after they come out to them. They don't hate the theatrics, they hate us, and they hate that we are allowed to have protests for equal rights which you call theatrics.

Of course it was for show; what good is a protest if no one sees you? Also you never answered my question.”

“OK I see where you are coming from. The problem is that this family style event is a lot like a political event where families who support Rob Ford are invited to attend. It's also in a public place.

Religious institutions do not make and enforce the laws in Canada (I hope) so protesting them does nothing to help the cause for equal rights and protection under the law. Political figures like Mayor Rob Ford do in fact make the laws and so if you, I, or anyone else want change, these are the people that need to hear the message. Please do note they have also gone to city hall but Ford goes a different route to avoid the protests and the people who do not agree with him.

And unfortunately, people do hate us. They hate us without even knowing us personally. They hate us before they see who we are, how we act, and what we think.

As a man I am sure you enjoy the privilege of being able to go out in public without a shirt on. Many years ago men protested for this right. They protested where they wanted to, in front of who they thought needed to hear them, and they made change happen. What would you have said to someone then if they yelled out profanities or talked about a 'time and a place for everything'?”

Johnny LaRue on Jul 28, 2014 at 14:23:28

“I think you are wrong. People don't hate you. Most normal people don't care. What they hate is theatrics from so many groups that want something and scream prejudice if anyone dare question their demands. This protest was no different then the Tamils shutting down the Gardner, selfish people seeking attention, then "acting "surprised when it goes south. There were enough parks to enjoy in T.O. the only reason that one was picked was for show. Do you believe the 5 or 6 protesters were going to accomplish anything ?”

“"Why does everyone have to agree with the LGBTQ." What are you trying to say with this statement?

Honest question: What do you "disagree" about the LGBTQ community?

Why does it bother you that they protest against a candidate to be their mayor who promotes disapproval of who they are? Why are they not allowed to be heard but others are?

The fact is that we live our lives knowing that people will hate us just for being who we are and there are many who actively lobby to keep the laws against our rights. Being silent and invisible like you would like us to be will not help us obtain equality in this great country and we will not shut up just because it will make you feel more comfortable.”

Johnny LaRue on Jul 27, 2014 at 07:57:54

“It bothers me when they protest at a family style event. People don't hate you they just hate this sort of "look at me immature actions". Go down to city hall and protest away, I don't care and most others don't either.. There is a time and place for everything . Thompson Park was neither, Nathan Phillips Square . Now why not go protest the real sources of hate, the various hard core religious institutions the openly denounce your values.”

“Interesting to note that it was Rob Ford's chief of staff who asked about the safety of the protesters and not the man himself. Furthermore, Ford did nothing to calm his fans.

Division politics helps no one. No. One. It creates hate and hostility. It feeds fear of the different and the unknown. There is nothing to be gained when we refuse to understand one another and choose to attack instead of debate.”

“I have Telus for mobile and Teksavvy for internet and I couldn't be happier. I originally had a DSL line (Bell) but when their technician failed to find our apartment and instead of calling to verify or trying to get a hold of us while we were at home waiting for him, he lied and recorded that we were not home. Teksavvy representatives found this out after hours (instead of me having to go through the trouble) and even though the error was on the technician Bell refused to come back and said that I would have to wait another two weeks to get connected _or_ switch to Bell (from Teksavvy) and get connected within 48hours! No thanks.

In conclusion, since it was going to take two weeks anyway, I switched to Cable (Rogers) and Teksavvy comped me 150$ for the trouble from THEIR account, not Bell, even though it wasn't their fault.

So far no issues with Telus after about a year now.”

“Bacon is ridiculously delicious and magically makes other foods better when combined with it. That being said, I no longer eat it. It's expensive, that's partly why, but all the food I buy seems to be expensive. Mostly it's the treatment of pigs and how they prepare the meat. Horrible conditions, treatment, and care. I'm glad the prices are rising because hopefully that means less consumption!”
