The leader of the conservatives in parliament comes with both good news and bad news. You will never guess which is which. The first piece of news has to do with the libertarian elected premier in Alberta. The second piece of news is that the former governor general has told the conservative party leader to ‘get stuffed’ or words to that effect.
The fact that the former governor general is very much a gentleman tells us that he is probably a bit embarrassed by the disrespect of the vindictive little man. There is no suitable venue for Mr. Johnston to respond to insults to his honourable intentions and he knows it is best to continue to carry on in the direction he had determined in the first place and ignore Mr. Poilievre.
And if there is anything that really annoys Mr. Poilievre, it is being ignored. Mr. Poilievre is on a mission of destruction and he can hardly accomplish it in a vacuum. A good lie about someone needs a denial. That is what enables you to segue to the next and more serious lie.
Obviously, Canadians were not overly shocked to hear that the former governor general had friendly relations with prime minister Trudeau when he moved his family into Rideau Cottage in Rideau Park. Since the prime minister’s official residence, across the street at 24 Sussex Drive, was under repair, it was a friendly arrangement.
But poor, pissed-off, Pierre Poilievre had more news than his pique with the former governor general, who was appointed governor general by Poilievre’s leader, former prime minister Stephen Harper. Mr. Poilievre’s home province of Alberta is now under firm control by the leader of what is called the united conservative party, known in Alberta as the UCP. What could be considered the bad news is that the leader of the provincial government is a Looney-Tunes libertarian retread from the Wildrose Party by the name of Danielle Smith.
And if you think Danielle Smith is good news for Pierre Poilievre, I would respectfully suggest that you rethink that foolish notion. Danielle Smith is bad news for everyone.
