Conservative party wants Canadians to pay for Covid tests on a daily basis.

Conservative party wants Canadians to pay for Covid tests on a daily basis.

My question is - what about the grandchildren that will have to pay for this?

The Conservative party truly is the party of fiscal irresponsibility. Just yuck!

The CPC twit continues to tout the nonsense of rapid testing. Rapid tests are only 40-50% accurate in detecting active COVID cases. That makes them useless. Would you drive your car to Vancouver if your brakes only worked 40-50% of the time?

There are 338 MPs plus hundreds and hundreds of staff that work for them in the parliament buildings. Almost a guarantee that some of them are immune system compromised. Those folks deserve the best protection possible, not pie in the sky 40-50% accurate nonsense from the dumb dumb wing of the CPC.

You can't use "rapid tests" as proof to fly in and out of countries for a reason - they aren't good enough! The CPC is demonstrating that they are incapable of rational thought. It is sad that the CPC has become the "party of stupid".

It's even worse than that. In reality all CPC MPs are already likely vaccinated. This posturing is just virtue signalling to avoid alienating their rabid anti-vax supporters. The CPC doesn't want to lose the 'stupid' part of their base (which is a large part of it). And they're willing to make our grandchildren pay for their stupidity by funding their ridiculous daily testing proposal.

I know yer just doin' yer del. ig. stuff... but dis deliberate fool: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blake_Richards

And yup, Elmer backed down, again: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politic ... -entering/

"Mr. O’Toole said the Board of Internal Economy (BOIE) “and the Speaker have ruled, and we will respect that. Of course, we also think, though, that we have to look at not dividing people on the issue.”"

Now ain't that a pretty bit waffling nonsense from O'Toole?

But meanwhile his CPC party whip says: "Conservative Party Whip Blake Richards sharply criticized the decision this week, saying: “While we encourage everyone who can be vaccinated to get vaccinated, we cannot agree to seven MPs, meeting in secret, deciding which of the 338 MPs, just elected by Canadians, can enter the House of Commons to represent their constituents.”"

So, does the CPC "party of stupid" know if it is punched, bored or screwed? Yet another another case of O'Toole goin' dis way - sort of lol, and the CPC party itself seemingly goin' dat way.

Which is it? What O'toole says? or What Richards says? Or summit else??? Or will it change again tomorrow??? Or the next day???

Yet another embarrassing disaster for lame duck O'Toole and another stinking albatross around the CPC's neck. O'Toole's failure to maintain a stance on any issue for the past year perfectly reflects how out of touch the CPC is, and why they've been rejected by the Canadian electorate 3 times in a row.

Yup, Elmer is saying one thing, while his whip is saying another.

Dang. Just when I was getting used to O'Toole saying one thing, and O'Toole saying another thing tomorrow.

Looks like they're getting an early start on losing their 4th election.

Here's a quote for you that will 'splain:

"Bobby Jindal was governor of Louisiana in 2013 when he warned fellow Republicans: “We must stop being the stupid party.” They didn’t listen."

When CPC aficionados and deliberately dufus opportunistic MPs play stupid, they sink O'Toole, and they sink the CPC.

Unfortunately, it's a lot easier to rile stupid people with BS, that to appeal to intelligent people with solid policies and programs.

The Conservatives have nothing to appeal to the latter, so they focus on fomenting hate and anger in the dullards.

It's why they just lost their 3rd election. Canada isn't the US South.

And yet it didn't explain anything. Other than it contained a great warning for the Liberals. They need to stop being the stupid party, without question.

And yet the only people we see "playing stupid" and being deliberate "dufuses" are the Liberal aficionados here. Who is this "Elmer" you keep speaking of? Is it code for Justin Trudeau or something?

This is so true, and a perfect description of the CPC's lame duck leader 2.0, Elmer O'Toole. Given the many embarrassing gaffes from the CPC's latest embarrassing leader we'll likely see die hard conservatives pretend to forget O'Toole ever existed, much like they did after Scheer similarly embarrassed the CPC on the national stage.

Yup, and no one knows this better than the Liberal aficionados and their paid DI's. They have no solid policies, no solid programs, nothing.

Simply untrue.
so they focus on fomenting hate and anger in the dullards.
And yet the only dullards we see "fomenting hate and anger" are Liberal aficionados. Because they have nothing else to offer.
It's why they just lost their 3rd election. Canada isn't the US South.
And why the Liberals lost their 2nd election. Canada isn't Communist China.
