It was no fun. I recently spent some time digging into what the pollsters have been telling us. They can be such a dreary bunch. And if they don’t like something, they tend to lay it on. They sure have not been giving good news to liberals. They tend to blame it all on Justin Trudeau. We might as well blame him for everything else that is going wrong.
The other day, for example, we found that the Canadian Mint was going to introduce the new King Charles III Canadian coins. Not that many Canadians give a damn but how will they get those big ears on a dime? So, just blame Justin. He gets blamed for everything else these days. The first time I met Justin as an MP, he turned me off because I wanted to do something about the Canadian constitution. He sure doesn’t want to get involved in that circus.
I could always blame the conservative’s Poilievre. That poor schmuck actually wants to be prime minister. He is the one going around the country saying that “Canada is broken.” I guess I will never understand him. Imagining Canada with him as prime minister is a mean and cruel country.
It would be a Canada with no place for charity. He wants dog-eat-dog capitalism. He doesn’t like rules—not even those promoted by the Marquis of Queensbury.
And what is that damn fool going to do about global warming. He hates spending money on things like water bombers to fight the out-of-control wildfires that are consuming our forests. What would he do about the floods that destroy our roads and bridges? The damn fool thinks he can solve all our problems with more police and longer prison sentences.
The conservatives are sure spending a lot on this guy. They have spent the last year trying to make him into something that Canadians would vote for. He sure squints a lot without his glasses. The wife and kids look like they came from central casting. Now, if they could only come up with a humanity pill for him. Frankly, I don’t think he is a very nice person.
