If you are wondering who is poisoning the political air in Canada, it is that smarmy little man who leads the unfortunate conservatives in parliament. Pierre Poilievre has little time for civility, decency or truth. He is a little man in a hurry and hardly cares about those things that make Canada a very liveable country.
Poilievre is like a poisonous snake striking out at institutions such as the Bank of Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and even Canadian charities. He promotes gambling with uncontrolled Internet money as opposed to the respected Loonie. He wants to politicize the Bank of Canada. He wants to defund the CBC and Radio Canada after many years of unbiased service to Canadians. He attacks a reputable Canadian charity because it has the same name as the prime minister.
Mr. Poilievre stands in the House of Commons and sneers at our institutions. There is no telling what this man might do to Canada if he ever gets his wish to be prime minister. He regularly insults the prime minister instead of making any headway. He has no respect for the rules of parliamentary behaviour.
He is like an attack dog, cut loose. He attacks the liberals at every opportunity. He scorns the new democrats. The Bloc Québécois delight in his perturbations. The House of Commons is his playpen.
He attacks the carbon tax which is an attempt to cut back the harm greenhouse gasses are causing our environment. He has no answer when you ask for his solution. His friends exploiting the tar sands for ersatz oil will tell you that the impossibly expensive capture and store is the answer—but that solves less than half the pollution problems they cause.
He has no constructive plans if he can win the next election. I think he knows that Canadians want good government. That is not what he is offering.
