Lol...politics.
Watching the circus in the US with the Dems pulling every dirty trick they can muster on the Kavanaugh confirmation.
Liberals are a unscrupulous evil bunch!

The part that is becoming so evident is that Conservatives are becoming the fools in this dirty game called politics.
Even with a Republican majority in the Senate, they failed to confirm a conservative judge.  They broke ranks and folded like a cheap tent, while the Dems held tight with their lies and unending slandering like a rock!

Even in Canada we see this trend.  Cons are their own worst enemy.  They haven't fully learned the game yet, while the Libs are pro at it.  I suppose Liberalism, being the disease that it is, makes it easy to compromise any morals, truth, or ethics.  Just look at Canada's own Kokanee Groper Turdo.  Brushed off his own MeToo moment in a flash, even got to put the blame on all other males calling it an lesson for THEM.  If that would have been Harper in this culture of sexual accusations, the Libs would have had a train load of alleged rape victims ready to pounce at the hint of an accusation.  They would be like ravens/vultues circling over a carcass.   All to be totally believed and backed by the media no matter the evidence.  They would have buried him in less than a week with the media frothing at the mouth.

One more factual reality.  The Libs own the media, they are the media and that gives them the power to do whatever they they can dream up.  The power is in the media.  The CBC plays a huge role in the constant Liberal campaigning and brainwashing.  Harper's biggest mistake ever with his majority was not cutting the head off the CBC.  CNN is that same monster in the US.

USMCA Tade Agreement.
Spent most of the morning as I do most mornings watching BNN and it's pretty much unanimous with all the analysts it's a decent deal for Canada. They lost some ground but also gained some on others. As much as I hate to see Groper boy win at anything they say his team did a pretty good job. So hats off to him on this one. It will be good for the country gets a big cloud lifted and things can get back to business. A lot of companies were on hold waiting for this to be done.

Like a good Liberal, Justin increased the funding to CBC after the election. Give the useful idiots more taxpayer's cash and they will kiss your butt.  As I recall Harper made cut backs to the CBC. That is why Harper was, and is now, a boogeyman.


The Canadian auto industry has been saved.

Steel and Aluminum? What is going on there?

What about the Quebec dairy farmers.  This should be interesting.

As for us westerners, nothing appears to have changed in terms of tariffs .

Everything is Hunky Dory in Eastern canada.

Maybe Ms. Rempel is correct. There just might be a snap election.


Just my thoughts.


What are yours?



Posts like this are what got me kicked off the "Other Place".

Yup greylynx I think a snap election could happen this fall.

Turdo just made the USMCA deal and this is a plus for him.

Plus with the results of the Quebec election he must see the writing on the wall. 8)

USMCA

Meh, I sure won't tip my hat to Groper Boy.

I read up on the wins/losses pros/cons of this new deal.
Really it is more of a save than a win.  Trump used his negotiation tactics that pressured Turdo into this deal where Turdo really never gained anything, but gave up a bit.

A free trade deal is a good thing no doubt and that was really in jeopardy with Trudeau's Liberals.  They pissed off the US and were lucky to get what they got with the USMCA in the end.  It could have been much worse.  Do I believe a business oriented Canadian Conservative government would have done better.  Absolutely, and not down to wire like this one.

The threat of auto and auto parts tariffs were there as a scare tactic.  Those tariffs were never in NAFTA so kind of a status quo on the auto sector.  Actually there are clauses in the new agreement which put limits on Canadian auto parts exports.

Turdo lost on the Dairly supply chain management issue.

The new steel and aluminum tariffs are still in place.  May be negotiated yet but that is a major loss from the old NAFTA.

Losses in the Pharmaceutical industry.

Dispute resolution (Chapter 19) is in USMCA but it was in NAFTA as well.  Status quo is all on that one.  Turdo counting that as a win.

Trudeaus cultural and environmental bs issues were mostly rejected, no surprise there.

Really, a new agreement is place and that is good considering the alternative, but the fact is overall Canada is still behind on what we had with NAFTA.
Andrew Scheer has been publicly very critical of the financial aspects of this new deal.

Beware of the mainstream media reporting on this matter, they will take Trudeau's side always.  Read the deal summary for yourselves and then judge the wins vs losses to NAFTA.
In the end, Trudeau will tout this a big achievement for his government since he has very few positive achievements.  It is really just a compromised save though compared to the looming disaster it could have been.

On the Quebec election:

On the surface, seeing the Quebec Liberals lose is awesome.  Trudeau will have yet another Provincial level opponent to his carbon tax ideas.

Down deep, this CAQ can't really be counted on to do anything but keep money flowing into Quebec and beg for concessions for those "Quebec Only" deals.  Will they reject Bombardier corporate welfare from Trudeau, I doubt it?  Will that help us in Alberta in any way?
The positives in my mind are:  Opposition to Trudeau, Opposition to overwhelming Muslim immigration, Rejection of Carbon Tax.

In a perfect world, I would like to see the PQ win and then separate Quebec from Canada.  ;)

I didn't know this until today but steel and aluminum tariffs were never part of free trade they are exempt and fall under national security in the US and this has been in place since the 60's JFK instated that. And I agree we may not have won anything necessarily well we did on some parts but we stood to lose a whole lot so in that case it's a win. Could a strong respected leader have done better absolutely but we have what we have so it could have been worse. In all honesty we in our daily lives will see no change. There's. no doubt in my mind Trump wouldn't have been near a smart ass or near as cocky had it been Harper he was dealing with, Harper would have mopped the floor with him. Even Malroney, that was Malroneys job for years he was a high finance negotiator. But like I say I view it as a win considering the putz we have.

More trouble with USMCA.

Clause 32 is very dangerous.  Trudeau signed away Canada's right to make deals with China and Asia.  We must notify the US first of all details and they can veto the agreement and basically punt Canada from the USMCA.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/canada-usmca-1.4845494
"With its new trade deal, Canada surrenders sovereignty to a bully"
"We're obliged to inform the U.S. of any intention to pursue negotiations with a "non-market" country"
Will this clause torpedo the LNG project?

Did Trudeau get steam rolled by Trump?  :(
