“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FORSETH -- Today was to have shed light on the entire situation – not that any of us expected it to happen – despite the best attempts of the NDP’s Charlie Angus, and Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre

This afternoon, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came before the Finance Committee to answer questions about the #WECharity ... and the ensuing chaos that came about as a result of the government handing over nearly ONE BILLION DOLLARS ($900 million) to the WE Charity, before the contract was cancelled.

In the ensuing weeks, we have heard of multiple instances of the family of Justin Trudeau having various roles, and participating in events WE held ... and the same for the governments Finance Minister, Bill Morneau.

Today was to have shed light on the entire situation – not that any of us expected that would happen – despite the best attempts of the NDP’s Charlie Angus ... and the Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre.

I made seven comments as I watched the 90-minute exchange on the Canadian Parliamentary Channel (CPaC) ...


  1. OMG. the Finance Committee gas given #JustinTrudeau at least 10 minutes of "Boy our government is great" bullshit. #SkippyMustGo #cdnpoli

  2. Isn't #SkippyMustGo supposed to be explaining / apologizing for his extremely daft decision to use #WE given the direct involvement of his family? #cdnpoli

  3. Does #SkippyMustGo seriously expect us to believe he didn't know what hotel his wife stayed at, in London, for her appearance at a #WECharity event. I call LIE #cdnpoli

  4. I should have ... I didn’t ... I regret. Why is #JustinTrudeau always apologizing for his screw ups over and over again. #SkippyMustGo. #cdnpoli

  5. Just wondering why is it #JustinTrudeau wants to take responsible for all the good stuff to do with shoveling billions out in programs & grants. Not so much however when accountability has to be explained for screwups. You're responsible Justin & that's why #SkippyMustGo

  6. How much ...I'm looking for a dollar figure? You haven't done an answer so far" ... says #PierrePoilievre. No surprise but #JustinTrudeau is not / will not answering :(


  7. The House Finance Committee Chair says he is going to give #JustinTrudeau a chance to answer. Too bad that Trudeau refuses to answer any/all questions

Like I said, we were to get answer this afternoon, at least that's what we were informed would be happening -- that however, definitely did not happen.

PS ... I shouldn’t have used it, and so I apologize for my juvenile comment #SkippyMustGo

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su


I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
