Oh boy, hope this spreads
It spread like a wildfire. Eyebrows have been raised south of the border already.

Talk about being disconnected from reality, but then she is running for the LPC and that seems to be a prerequisite for running with their current leader.
That, and being feckless…to wit Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister with about the most mealy-mouthed hollow spout of BS we’ve heard in…..we’ll…a few days, re: stabilizing the situation in Afghanistan.
(Link: Article on Liberal Minister’s Respect for Taliban)

We are working together to develop the necessary approach that we will take towards this Taliban regime in the coming days and to put down in front of them very important markers with respect to how they have to treat Afghans who want to leave the country,” Garneau explained.

What of any meaning did Garneau actually say?!? 🧐

They are planning in order to produce a plan to issue a wish-list to people over whom they have no leverage.

Buy a cheap house at the end of the runway, complain about the noise of aircraft.

(Or buy harbourfront property and complain about the island airport that has been there nearly a century...)
Or build a "rest and tranquility haven" on the outskirts of the Gagetown impact area, and then rage at base officials daily.

and sadly he is one of the smartest one in the Cabinet, I think their constant stupidity has worn him down.

Or, until they go on strike.

No garbage collection.
Arenas, pools and recreation facilities shut down. No summer programmes for kids. No grass cutting in parks. Island ferries shut down.
Daycare facilities shut down.
Licencing Commission shut down. No building permits, signage permits, taxi cab or "burlesque" licences.
No Department of Public Health inspects of restaurants, pools, beaches, city run health clinics and dental offices.
Water supply and treatment workers on the picket line.
No animal services.
etc....


that's why they have restrictions on zoning. They didn't change the zoning for altruistic purposes they changed it to collect more taxes on residential rather than run-down industrial and incidentally, give their supporters a huge profit on purchases of those industrial units that had been closed.

Just setting up signs for our local CPC candidate, a lot of people honking in support, i have doubts our new candidate can beat Wilkinson, but the LPC guy may fall afoul of voter anger, just as the previous CPC MP did. 70% turnout in the last election.

More bought-and-paid-for Toronto Star commentary 😉
... Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on the hustings Wednesday: “We will continue to work with our partners on the ground, we will continue to work with our allies, we will continue to make sure we will get everyone out that we can in the coming days, and continue to engage in the coming months as we help get Afghans to safety in Canada.”

Rubbish soundbites, signifying nothing. Canada, nor the U.S. for that matter, has no leverage against the murderous Taliban ...
Edited to add the bought-and-paid-for Globe & Mail's editorial board take: "Ottawa bungled the Afghan rescue operation, and Afghans relying on Canada will die because of it"
