Liberal =

Conservatives=

Green=

NDP=

Bloc=

Independent =

I will furnish my view later this week.

Got my vote!

Green MPs will be allowed to press for Quebec separatism in Parliament

Quote:
On the night before the federal election kicks off, the Green Party of Canada said it would not stop its members from pushing for Quebec separatism in parliament.

The party was reacting Tuesday to an interview on Quebec’s QUB Radio with Montreal-area MP Pierre Nantel on Tuesday.

Nantel, who is running for the Greens after he was booted from the NDP for secretly meeting with Green Leader Elizabeth May in August, told the radio station that he would vote to separate if there was a sovereignty referendum in Quebec.

Speaking in French, he said “we should separate quickly.”
Bold mine.

Why, yes. Yes, you should.

Frankly, with Kaybeck gone, that'd make Alberta staying in confederation almost tolerable. I said almost...

The Libranos: SNC Lavalin

Quote:
ProTip: Next time the RCMP come calling with questions, cite ‘cabinet confidentiality’.
The RCMP has been looking into potential obstruction of justice in the handling of the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., but its examination has been stymied by the federal government’s refusal to lift cabinet confidentiality for all witnesses, The Globe and Mail has learned.

This means individuals involved in the matter cannot discuss events or share documents with police that have not been exempted from the rule of cabinet confidentiality, according to sources, who The Globe agreed not to identify so they could discuss the RCMP inquiries.

In Canada, the principle of cabinet confidentiality is intended to allow ministers to debate decisions freely in private. As a result, discussions involving cabinet matters must be kept secret unless a waiver is granted. In the SNC matter, the Liberals say that the Clerk of the Privy Council, who heads the bureaucratic agency that serves the Prime Minister’s Office, made the decision not to offer a broad waiver to either the RCMP or to the Ethics Commissioner, and that the PMO played no role.

A source who was recently interviewed by the RCMP told The Globe that investigators indicated they are looking into possible obstruction of justice. The Criminal Code says obstruction of justice occurs when an effort is made to “obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice in a judicial proceeding.”

The national police force will pause the operation because of the coming election campaign. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to go to Rideau Hall Wednesday to ask the Governor-General to dissolve Parliament and call the vote for Oct. 21, and the RCMP has a policy to suspend politically sensitive operations during campaigns.
And on the eve of an election call. (They’ll question the timing)

Related to the above.

Suddenly Liberals Don’t Care About Obstruction of Justice

Quote:
It’s almost like the issue only matters if they can use it to attack someone else.
Shutting down the House of Commons committee can be dismissed as partisan politics. Denying the ethics commissioner full access to witnesses and documents was wrong and petulant.

But blocking the RCMP is Putinesque.
Curious, that...

Trudeau deflects blame for blocking RCMP probe of office

Quote:
Faced with questions about obstructing the RCMP from investigating his own office, Justin Trudeau stood smiling before the cameras and tried to hide behind the facade of the civil service.

“We respect the decisions made by our professional public servants. We respect the decision made by the clerk,” Trudeau said.

Which is strange because the reason the RCMP wanted to obtain documents from his office and speak to witnesses is because Trudeau didn’t respect the decision of the director of public prosecutions in the SNC-Lavalin case. In that instance, Trudeau and many in his office put extreme pressure on then attorney-general Jody Wilson-Raybould to overturn the decision of the director.
Bold mine.

Stange, Brian? Face it: this is the Prime Groper we're talking about here...

An auspicious start...

Liberal election plane damaged after media bus drives under wing

Quote:
Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s election plane sustained some damage in Victoria after a media bus drove under one of its wings Wednesday night.

The plane had just landed in the British Columbia capital after transporting Trudeau, his team and several journalists travelling with the campaign across the country for Day 1 of the federal election race.
There goes that $600 million...
