Behold the new, the quiet Pierre Poilievre, the leader of His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition. The braggart of Carleton riding is now resident in Stornoway. His next stop is the prime minister’s office. Well, that is the scenario, as he planned it.
This is a man in desperate conflict with his planned progress. He has had too many ‘oops.’ He welcomed the ‘Freedom Convoy’ to Ottawa a year ago. He feted them. He is forever identified with the promise of more freedom to people who could hardly identify the freedoms they already had, in one of the freest countries in the world.
Yet they came. They brought bouncy castles and hot tubs. They brought air horns. It was party time in the old lumbering town on the Ottawa River. They defied advice to leave. The town was descending into chaos. Business was bad. Tourism in Ontario had taken a wrong turn.
The rider sneered at the complaints. His objectives came ahead of all else. He would go on to win the conservative leadership. The ‘Freedom Convoy’ helped him along. What was the cost of a temporary conservative party membership to help Pierre Poilievre on his quest of the leadership?
This is the guy who is going to fire the Bank of Canada’s governor for supposedly aiding Justin Trudeau in handing out money to Canadians, to help get them through the worst of the pandemic. He will tell you that conservatives never do things like that. Conservatives believe in a dog-eat-dog world—every man for himself.
Wasn’t it Pierre Poilievre who wanted the Bank of Canada to issue crypto currencies, just before Bitcoin lost about a third of its value? This guy is no economist.
There is a very long list of what Mr. Poilievre is not. He is not a leader. He seeks to divide people. He feeds on anger. Like any good conservative, he hates the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Radio Canada. He is unaware of the good they have done for our country. He has no experience other than politics.
He talks of an extreme right-wing conservatism. No expenditure unless there is an equal and opposite cost saving. And business makes the rules. He is a mean and cruel little man. He is earning his place in Hell.
