The Liberals keep using the talking point that both the NDP and the PCs were against these plants too.
The Liberals were adamant that these plants had to go were they were planned. They dismissed opponents as NIMBYS and I'm sure they'd have stuck to their guns had they been trying to build these plants in safe PC ridings.
That's what was scandalous about their behaviour. The Mississauga plant was being constructed when it was cancelled, and construction continued even after it was cancelled because a contract had already been signed.
It was a purely political decision but as TimG points out, it was done in the "public good". But it's sort of like saying you're going to build a landfill in the Middle of Downtown Toronto but decide to cancel it during an election, for the "public good".
At first I thought this had to be a scam, but it appears that more than one journalist has seen it. They even have slightly conflicting reports on who called Trudeau a faggot, and which Trudeau they were referring to, so it sounds like the story is actually based on a quick viewing of a video they aren't able to play back and verify very easily.Ford's lawyer's reaction is kind of a giveaway though. He said, “How can you indicate what the person is actually doing or smoking (from a video)?” And he's right. He could very well have been just smoking tobacco out of a crack pipe in a crack den. :rolleyes:I'm still willing to give Ford the benefit of the doubt, but that doubt is on shaky ground.
Unless the video actually surfaces, and it's obvious it's him this will just be another thing that comes out that doesn't really change anyone's mind about him.
Apparently a sitting Senator has never been removed in the history of Canada. Apparently you not only have to be convicted of a crime, you have to be sentenced for 2 years or more to be removed from the Senate.
