“Just a PR stunt. Justin is an elitist and always will be.”

Will Webster on Apr 16, 2014 at 16:11:43

“I don't know. There were no reporters present. Trudeau did not inform the media of this so called PR stunt. This is in sharp contrast to Mr. Harper, who has been known to use govt jets and take along scores of photojournalists to places like Haiti for photo ops.
If you think this was an elitist undertaking, you must be really irked by some of the PR stunts Mr. Harper has pulled off.”

“You are right and I am not taking the human part away from it - I am just stating that he was not a great public servant as they say he was.”

“On that, you could not possibly be more correct! Condolences to the man and his family, but yes, his tragic and untimely passing does not retrospectively improve his job performance.”

“Normally I would keep things like that to myself but The Honourable Jim Flaherty has helped ruin Canada and he has negatively affected millions of lives for generations to come.”

“Yes, he has. He was also a human being with a family and friends who are now missing him terribly. While I was delighted when he stepped down as finance minister, I was also dismayed at his replacement. I will not miss his incompetence on the Hill, but I feel for someone who got less than four weeks of retirement when he passed. Jack Layton, on the other hand, could have done so much for (as opposed to 'to' this country) this country had cancer not taken him, thus the thousands at his visitation. I would have liked to have been one of the people there.”

“Though Trudeau maybe be 10 times better than Harper - he is not the best man for the job, at least not yet anyways.
People also fail to realize that Trudeau votes in favour of almost all HarperCons motions and bills in Parliament.
What I am afraid of happening is the if Trudeau does win - a minority or a majority, he will screw up and people will jump ship back to the Tories.
For me I am voting for Mulcair, let the NDP fix what Harper has ruined and then when everyone is fed up with Mulcair, vote in Trudeau who will have much more experience and vision and he will continue to put Canada on the right track. Therefore C*&k blocking the Cons for many years to come.”

Jake Thomas on Apr 14, 2014 at 20:21:30

“All Trudeau will do if he achieves the PMO is give the Conservatives the next election. He is bound to fail and speaks for the wealthy. He is oblivious to the needs of low income Canadians.”

Allan Beveridge on Apr 14, 2014 at 18:20:44

“The first order of business is to get Harper out of office. If the NDP candidate in your riding has the best chance of doing that by all means vote that way, but if it's a Green or an LPC candidate don't split the vote.

I am not a partisan support so it is easier for me to do that though that is actually irrelevant as I live in Alberta so I've voted that way for a long time.”

“As wrong as Russia is in this situation, Harper should not be taking the lead on this issue considering Russia could destroy Canada within hours. Leave it to the UK and the USA who actually have some sort of chance.”

mercsforever on Apr 14, 2014 at 23:34:46

“Harper is far from taking the lead on any issue - he's just talking for the benefit of the Ukrainian ambassador - and photo ops, of course. The ambassador, out of politeness and protocol is obliged to make pleasant sounds in return.”

“They wanted them to put Le Magasin Costco etc.

But thankfully the PQ are out and the budget for the OQLF will be slashed and they will not be pressured as much.
The LPQ will not get rid of them in part because the PQ and other parties will use it against them in future elections.”

“The thing is what constitutes as being guilty before the court of law finds the person guilty? The Police? We know that the police sometimes (it is rare but it happens) fabricate evidence and also the eye witness account has been proven by psychologists and criminologists to be not as reliable as we once thought.

In order not to punish innocent people we must respect the law that he or she is innocent until a judge or jury has heard all the evidence available and has come to a concrete conclusion.”

“Though I fully agree with stopping further victimization, I am afraid the way Mckay is talking ("he has no problem with removing that right if it protects victims")
it is a slippery slope. We have to treat the accused as innocent until proven guilty regardless of the crime.”

Newfoundlander on Apr 7, 2014 at 15:10:52

“While I wholeheartedly agree with the spirit of your comment, I must take exception to the phrase "innocent until proven guilty".

I feel that a better statement of the principle is "innocent UNLESS proven guilty".”
