Rex Murphy: This is the worst Canadian government ever

Post by Gone_Fishin »

Rex is spot on, as usual.

Rex Murphy: This is the worst Canadian government ever. Can there be any question?

It’s a mess. It’s a shambles. It’s an embarrassment. It is the worst ever by any reasonable measurement.

Judging by their performance on the most important files, the current bunch in Ottawa would need to hire a consultant to figure out how to get wet in a thunderstorm, and set up a task force to study how to tie their own shoes.

snip

One year into COVID our venerated House of Commons is a disembowelled, non-functioning, neglected wreck. The targeted disrespect of the absolute and central symbol and instrument of our democracy has no parallel. No “minority” government has ever operated with the smug insouciance and patented, virtue-perfumed arrogance towards the Commons as the Trudeau government. This is, when we step back, their biggest sin.

Since 1867 no prime minister has abandoned the House of Commons and downgraded its significance for so long a period and for such obviously self-centred and political opportunistic reasons. It is so much easier, so much safer, so much more convenient — to walk from the bedroom to the one-printer office and mail in platitudes and arias of evasion via Zoom.

What other government has parted ways with a governor general, and to top it off, a governor general brought in by the world’s No. 1 “male feminist” as a role model for young women and girls? The same male-feminist who conveniently loses all his top-performing female ministers. Someone should do a “gender analytics” study on Justin Trudeau’s cabinet.

Not to worry. It has lost a finance minister over ethics charges during the mightiest spending binge since the Big Bang. An attorney general, the prime guardian of our rule of law, was hounded out because she would not bend the rule of law. The most qualified and respected woman, a doctor of medicine no less (in other words a real doctor) could not abide staying in so carelessly unethical a cabinet. Thus, at the very time Canada would have wished the most competent person to deal with a once-in-a-hundred years medical emergency, Dr. Jane Philpott is not even in the government.

snip

The Liberals have given far more time and dedicated energy to the Derek Sloan affair (whatever that was) than the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, and the emergent threat of Alberta leaving the Confederation. (Query for serious panel discussion: Is Canada safe from Bidenism?) Alberta groans while the Trudeau government spends over $36 million for “stay-at-home chairs” for its civil service.

The country is in an economic coma. The House of Commons is a movie set. We are shamed in the international community. Contracts on COVID are all Top Secret. There is zero reliability on any projection made by a minister or the prime minister on where we are on vaccines and distribution. Rideau Hall is shortly to be listed on Airbnb. Farmers have been hit by fuel and carbon taxes. Newfoundland teeters on bankruptcy. The West has never felt so far out of things. I could go on.

Is this what was meant when the rosy words were first pronounced: Canada’s back?

To calm yourself, however, there is always this: Climate change.

Climate change. Climate change. Two billion trees. Two billion trees. Home chairs. Home chairs. Derek Sloan.

A perfect example of biased opinion reporting in Canada. Exactly the thing you accuse CBC of doing, yet they don't.

What is biased about this "reporting"? It's an opinion piece. It's not someone claiming to be impartial, like a news anchor, deliberately spinning something to the positive or negative, it's Rex Murphy giving his opinion. Which he's allowed to do.
Justin Trudeau- racist, elitist, liar. What a sick piece of garbage.

Considering that Rex Murphy was a card carrying Liberal for most of his life, twice running for a Liberal seat in Newfoundland-Labrador, it’s really disingenuous to accuse Rex of biased opinion reporting. Believe it or not, some Liberals have “woken” to reality and are calling a spade a spade.

So, “Cut to today, which sees the National Post hosting his increasingly Don Cherry-like ramblings. It's not that Murphy has become old or "irrelevant" or any other knee-jerk adjective like that. He has simply become worse than he was before. At this point, it's undeniable: Canada's greatest coot has become one of its very worst.”
This is just total trash. "One of its very worst"? removed
