  1. Not to defend Trump too much, but I suspect he couldn't say anything that would have been well received by this family in question.

      Was it a Black family I wonder? At any rate I imagine even Trump has enough sense to know he needs to at least try to show remorse in a call to a fallen soldiers family, he's just not very adept at articulation. If he chose the wrong words and it became public, he should have just consulted one of his speech writers and called back to correct the issue instead of going all political, which sadly may have the effect of dragging out the healing process for the family.

  2. 2 years of Sunny Ways. Only 2 years left, hopefully. These arrogant hypocrites are bad for Canada.

      You would be correct if his father was as thick as a brick, but he wasn't.

      well he's dead now so why worry. Look forward is my advice.

      Angus is right. PET was intelligent. Maybe the fact Gord Downie died on PET's birthday (Oct. 18) made Trudeau doubly emotional hence his over the top reaction.

  3. And you're wrong that it's only done for religious reasons. It does have health benefits. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/male-circumcision-benefits-outweigh-risks-cdc-says/
  4. Who'd have guess the Federal Finance Minister under Trudeau would be a gigantic hypocrite?

      Morneau's French Villa fiasco adds a whole new meaning to those banking commercials where they say "you're richer than you think".

      Same old same old, as we say here in the sticks.

  5. Western dictatorships

    If they are lying Trump can sue them for libel. Trump has a track record of litigation.
  6. Federal Conservatives Ahead -Sep 2017

    This Tax Hike for businesses and the use of the term "Loopholes" for employee benefits, will not go away. What does JT have left to offer now? He'll have to pray that Pot legalization is a success story, but if they ad a 10% tax the product may not be viable compared to black market weed. The came in as a young instrument of change and within two years there are two younger leaders showing exposing him as old and out of touch.
  7. America under President Trump

    This guy is too much! http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41584194 I get fighting with the media. All politicians do that. But to silence the media? Now that's playing from the Hitler playbook. I'm sure there are rubes that applaud this. Had Obama gone after anyone that claimed he wasn't American, the cries of Nazism would be so loud. What a clown this guy is. (cue BC2004 going after JT, which is laughable because I think he's a clown too, just a less dangerous clown)
  8. Trump threatens to take NBCs Broadcast license. Is he even trying to hide playing from the Hitler playbook? Can you imagine if Obama threatened to Strip Fox New's Broadcast license?

      As has the FCC, I'd imagine. But if Trump tried to control the FCC, not that's some dictator stuff right there.

      The Trudeau family loves dictators...like Fidel Castro.

      Trump likes dictators like...what's that Russian guys name again?. Oh yeah, Putin. And apparently he hates Muslim's, well except those that run SA, who he sells them billions worth of war material. Good gawd BC, have you never tried to understand the word "hypocrite"? bECAUSE YOUR FAV PRESIDENT IS A YUUUUGE ONE.

  9. JT called Thanksgiving the Mid-Autumn festival. What's culturally insensitive about Thanksgiving?

      JT is Canada's turkey.

      Except he was referring to a different festival.  

      Today, I join Canadians of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese heritage to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.

      “Also known as the Moon Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when the moon is at its fullest and brightest. It symbolizes a good harvest, and is a time to give thanks for the year’s successes.

      A week later, he covered the Thanksgiving festival.

      Ottawa, Ontario

      October 9, 2017

      The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Thanksgiving:

      “Today, Canadians across the country will celebrate Thanksgiving – a day to gather with family and friends and give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy in our lives.

  10. America under President Trump

    Saying "My IQ is bigger than yours" is something a mor. . . no a effing moron would say.
  11. America under President Trump

    I'm sure Trump supporters will support the legitimacy of that poll and not the poll that 2 thirds of the country oppose him.
  12. America under President Trump

    Hmmmm This must be the new Repub talking point. As if Pro Sports teams getting tax breaks is a new thing. Trump should look to Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi to see how to stand up to pro sports. Fighting with the Flames may cost him an election.
  13. America under President Trump

    To racists I'm sure that's how it must seem. No mention of the military from people Protesting.
