Conservative MPs & staffers rigged supply management debate

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

On this week's episode of The Gunn Show, Red Deer-based Conservative delegate, Denton Wierzba, joined me to explain how Conservative MPs and staffers organized against the party's grassroots to fix the debate over supply management at the Halifax convention.

While other policy meetings went smoothly and according to schedule, the supply management debate began half an hour late and was frequently delayed by MPs and staffers filibustering. Despite efforts by grassroots members to call procedural votes to get supply management moved up, the chair never recognized their right to vote.

President Trump has demanded that a renegotiated NAFTA include the elimination of supply management in Canada's dairy sector, but Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer are united in defending it. The majority of Scheer's own party want's it gone and he's already lost Maxime Bernier over the issue.

Why didn’t trudeau work with the Yanks?..trudeau works for his UN Masters..Check out agenda 21..trudeau…. and it looks like other politicians in Canada are following trudeau’s charge of destruction against Canadians..What else could it be?

All trudeau had to do was work with President Trump with Respect. He did not. What trudeau has done in the past and now was not in the best Interest of the Working Class/Blue Collar Everyday People.

I’m quoting from the Washington Post site and a comment on that site.. They(msm) are going after Bernier now the same way they went after President Trump…

“Maxime Bernier is far from the far right. He is a moderate with sensible views on compassionate immigration and free trade. This opinion piece is terribly misleading and inflammatory, so now I must choose to reject the Washington Post on the basis of extreme bias and inaccuracy.
Do make time to research Bernier, especially in Canadian journals and websites. Much commentary here assumes Ms Loreto’s article is accurate: it is not, and she should withdraw it.”

People need to read, The Art of the Deal. Much of what Trump says are negotiating tactics. Even saying that he isn’t interested in negotiating. Trudeau and Freeland should give it a read instead of rolling over and letting the world at their bellies.

“Screw Canada”? You mean the marketing boards for milk, poultry and eggs have NOT been “screwing Canadians” for generations now? I guess some people are a tad innocent on the concept of what it is to get “screwed”…

Hate is never manifested towards the person. , but towards the persons actions and deeds.
I don’t hate Trudeau. I hate his policies and what they are doing to the country.

“and the hate for Trudeau, is so great around here that you’d willingly screw Canada for purely political purposes.”

Trudeau’s hate for Canada, is so great that he’d willingly screw Canada for purely political purposes.

Trump admitted yesterday he’s not interested in “negotiating”. Throwing the farmers under the bus when the other guy’s not going to make any counter concessions (perhaps eliminating American dairy subsidies, but that’s not going to happen since their own dairy lobby is so strong). is not a winning strategy. It’s actually kinda just rolling over and letting him at your belly. It’s clearly a powerful bargaining chip, and if it must be played, it should actually achieve something. Trump’s bluffing about the auto industry, it’s so integrated that it would ironically do just as much damage to his own country.

I can’t help but think that the love for Trump, and the hate for Trudeau, is so great around here that you’d willingly screw Canada for purely political purposes.

Derek exactly, the free market. It worked well for New Zealand when they woke up in the 80’s, and it is still working well. I am sick of paying through the nose and having such limited choice. I also eat a lot of chicken and eggs and the prices are stupid high in this country. Canadian dairy and poultry farmers don’t want the change and that is to be expected, however it will happen eventually, I would like to see it now. Its not like the rug will be pulled out from under them. They will be paid out in some fashion to bring them down to earth.

Jamie MacMaster—I have said for months that if we lose NAFTA, Canada is screwed and the Canadian Public will blame their leader Trudeau. Unfortunately I was wrong as even today I heard Politically Ignorant Canadians saying “Trump is a Bully”, and they blame him for Freeland and Trudeau’s lack of common sense in negotiating.

We have to design a simple test before a Canadian can vote.

Of course they wouldn’t table supply management. The conservative party, like all other political parties have already made up their agenda. These get togethers are simply to direct the flow of support to preset directives. Years ago, I was invited to attend a provincial gov. meeting to help focus gov. funding and support in my field of work. Half way through the meeting, it became very clear the government already had a preset agenda. A funny looking little man stood up beside me and eloquently ripped the meeting apart. The government officials tried to act offended and surprised, but only came off as liars. This man was so well spoken and seemed to remember every exact phrase from the 8 reps in a 1 1/2 hour meeting. They had no alternative but to admit to the present agenda. Never Trust Politicians.

Jamie: “Just as our markets have to open up to Yank dairy products” so will theirs have to open up to ours since our dairy industry will now have to export their products to survive.

Low and behold, the American start to love our great Canadian cheeses with Balderson and other fine Canadian cheeses from the belle province such as OKA leading the way. Who would have thought that. Oh, the power of a free market.

Shrug. Given the reflexive anti-Americanism of the majority of Canadians, turdo is in a win-win situation.

If he doesn’t make a deal, the Dairy cartel will cheer to high heavens, and the blame for any tariffs that the US imposes on Canadian autos (and consequences) will be assigned by the majority of Canadians, to Trump.

If he does make a deal, here’s my prediction: the Canadian market will open up to certain Yank dairy products, Trump will relent on our autos, and the poor, screwed Canadian taxpayer will make up for any losses incurred by dairy farmers…..and then some.
