“Bring on the crazy”: Singh’s “publicity stunt” engagement bodes well for Conservatives

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


A couple of days ago Castro loving, feel-goodery spewing, Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh proposed to his girlfriend, and she said yes.

We are on different political teams, but marriage is great and I wish him many years of happiness with his new fiancée.

Singh invited members of the media to a "surprise proposal" and the media eagerly obliged, acting as stenographers and engagement photographers. One big, happy, family!

But this is what Trudeau has done to the culture of politics in Canada.

Singh wants to be prime minister and that means, at least on the deeply unserious left side of the Canadian political spectrum, being even more "Trudeau" than Trudeau himself.

And as annoying as it's going to be for me to watch all of this, as a conservative, I have to welcome it.

Conservatives need Singh to be as frivolous and ridiculous as Trudeau.

Rob Greeley,

Where did I say that I love Trudeau or even like him all that much for you to make a claim that I deem him my idol.

Are you just stupid and think anyone who disagrees with you, MUST worship Trudeau?

James Crockett…I’m not stupid……

Actually I disagree, Conservatives need a relatively strong NDP to take away Liberal votes. Other than that they need a fourth party like the Bloc in PQ.

Diversity = weakness and confusion . . . the Canadian way ! ! !

Nope. Trump is a dickhead. But he pisses all over turdo la doo.

So of course he was serious about Trudeau.

Heh, heh, heh. Yup, right. And then he sent him off to the dollhouse to play with Ivanka and the girls in the ‘Launch Event Women’s Entrepreneur Finance Initiative’ .

Sure, he was serious.

Andrew…you clearly did not travel into the United States in 2008/2009…and so on..It was not booming..It was busted.. "

How so? Do you feel nearly nine years (the Dow bottomed March, 2009) isn’t "the better part of a decade’? If so, what’s your cutoff? Similarly the job market net-created jobs in 2010, and each of the intervening years as well. Fun fact that you might appreciate,- 2017 was the worst year for job creation since 2010.

Andy, I am confident that our PM will do a bang up job. As Andrew ran minds us most Canadians are happy with the job he’s doing. He will do just as well on this file as he did with the trade agreement with China. "

Well Ms. Stephenson, a bit of clarity at last,, Indeed:
“we have done very well by NAFTA and will suffer if it’s revoked”… And as long as Kristy With The Red Dress On and the Boy Blunder keep playing their childish games with the most powerful economy in the world, the outcome is inevitable… "

How so? Trudeau’s done a pretty good job so far, I’d say.

Al Peterson,

Most Canadians are happy with Trudeau for the most part. Of course there are things that could be better or things that people don’t like about him, but unless you are living under a rock or in a Rebel bubble, Canadians are not looking to get rid of him – at least not in 2019.

Perhaps you shouldn’t focus so much on your seething hate for Trudeau and actually be aware of and understand what the Canadian people want, which appears to be completely the opposite of what you and your cute fringe group want.

Drew Wakariuk,

Good – please stay home in the next election to show your integrity. Canadians will thank you.
commented 2018-01-21 02:29:51 -0500
The problem, Shiela, is that you are assuming that Canadians will reject this shallowness. I fear they will only embrace it. I guess splitting the left’s vote by shallow means could work but I won’t hold my breath.

80,000 jobs have been lost due to NAFTA in the US. How many here? No wonder Trump is moving cautiously on this! "

Most of those jobs came to Canada… as a primarily export driven country, we have done very well by NAFTA and will suffer if it’s revoked…

“Paul McCullough McCullough commented 2018-01-19 17:53:45 -0500
Meanwhile former reality TV star, Donald Trump, is bringing trillions of dollars back to the American economy, has caused records to be set for the stock markets, has caused record low unemployment in among blacks & Hispanics & done it all in his first year.”

Yet, this is happening with NAFTA still extant. I’m really curious if anybody’s realized the problem with claiming economic ruin, when the US has been economically booming for the better part of a decade and has been breaking all sorts of records of that nature for years. Manufacturing jobs bottomed in 2012, and have been growing since … the problem is that it’s not creating jobs for unskilled workers, but that’s not due to outsourcing or NAFTA, it’s automation. Protectionism doesn’t address that problem, nor does blaming Mexicans. As in, without addressing the labour gap, all the walls in the world won’t create jobs for those who have nothing to offer that can’t be done more cheaply by robots. And, you can address that skills gap without protectionism … as the 96% of labour participants who have jobs despite NAFTA, can attest to.

… 2018 will be a continue dying in the polls for the NDP.
… Lose the flashy turban and clothes, get a shave, and get serious. "

I don’t see how the colour of his turban has any bearing whatsover on his competence as leader. I mean, if you had a problem with his policies, you could certainly address those … but you don’t.

The youngsters, Trudeau, Scheer, and Singh, are running rampant with their hairdos, pasted dimples, and stylish clothes. Really, three party leaders are going on their image and personality?
