Interesting. What was their ruling on the use of reports from the CCPA and the Broadbent Institute?


Probably the same. These are not news sites, they are not valid sources of information.....but did you notice how often Andrew Scheer uses these types of studies to advance his agenda?

ALL the political Party's use studies put out by partisan think tanks in order to help bolster their own particular world view. So what's your point?

Show me where the Liberals have used anything but statscan in their statistics numbers? Sure they use centrist propaganda sites to bolster their popularity but not to argument reality as Scheer does regularly to advance his agenda.

And when you add to this his wish to loosen gun controls to allow automatic rifles in Canada, it's no wonder they're trying to brighten him up.


That's probably correct. Scheer is trying to paint an average, normal life for himself with the drugs, paper route schtick, but in reality, Scheer's father was a deacon at his church and has beliefs that don't align with average normal Canadians.

Interesting. My father had plenty of beliefs that don't align with mine. Surely we ought not to expect Scheer is a carbon copy of his.

LOL - and Justin's dad was a communist and his mom was a hippie drug abuser who partied it up with rock stars while leaving three small kids behind in Canada. Are their beliefs in alignment with average normal Canadians? I would hope not, as communism is terrible. What do parents have to do with this? And what do you think is a "average normal Canadian"? What a silly phrase.

Admitting to sniffing weed in his neighbours yard ( as opposed to the reefer madness he's like us to believe) still doesn't make him interesting.. we need more European type scandals in Canadian politics.
Andrew really couldn't help his father being a Deacon.. sheesh.
I think half of Canada grew bored with Harper for being so darn white bread. Wonder if he tried weed?

I remember that the Economist ran some sort of story about how Canada wasn't cool anymore under Harper. Why? Because we were too financially well managed and didn't run up big deficits. That's somehow cool, to run massive deficits. We're cool now, under those metrics!! We weren't cool because we didn't bend over to the horrible corrupt UN and do what they told us to do. Because we didn't get on board with the cool people and hate Israel. Because we didn't do enough to join the cool Euro-trash at "Climate Conferences" and pledge to destroy our economy with insanely stupid enviro-nut policies. Because we didn't support giant wealth transfers to third world dictatorships. We just weren't "cool".

Now we're so cool, countries send their junior agriculture minister to meet our head of state. We're so cool China tells us to get out of the country and won't even do a photo-op. We're so cool that the world laughed as our super-duper PM penned a tear-stained eulogy to a brutal murdering dictator, and then was bewildered when everyone collectively face-palmed at how dumb it was. We are just so darned cool!!

Didn't mind Harper but a pencil could have won against him

You do make a good point, Harper did run up some pretty big deficits. I stand corrected on that.

I just remember the journalist saying that just because our banks weren't failing didn't make us cool. I didn't know how to take that.

I see, was your father a Decon at your church? Do you have any religious leaders in your family? I do. The children are not brought up in the same way as other "normal" children. What a condescending thing to say.

Pretty condescending to think the deacon's kids are not normal. Judging everyone by your own experience won't serve you well in the long run.

One of my besties in high school was the preachers' kid. Very conservative at the time, but very liberal now. People change. Nobody's stuck with being what their parents modeled or who their parents' wanted them to be.
