Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In light of Andrew Scheer's election as the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, we're re-posting this conversation I had with him on November 6, 2016, where we talked about many issues, particularly immigration:

Could we ever get a retrospect from our P.M Harper..would you interview him Ezra?
commented 2017-06-04 15:49:29 -0400
He has to stop using the ahah in his speech! It makes him sound like Truedum which is not a good sign at all. Sorry, that’s just my opinion!

Further to my previous comment “it is time we all unite behind Andrew Scheer.”

Here is why it is so important: I posted “Canada’s Debt, A Liberal Legacy” just prior to the last federal election: http://heinzegroup.com/insight.htm#13

“I’m always harping about the abortion situation in Canada, but one has to take this seriously when discussing refugees.
From 1974 to 2010, 3,200,000 babies were aborted. That is 3 MILLION! And how many were aborted from 2010 to 2017?
Technically, babies from the first 3 decades would now be grown adults with their own children. Kinda like Andrew Scheer.
And we are importing refugees to sustain our economy?
The argument is that Canadians are not producing their own. HELLO? "

Put the blame squarely where it belongs. Canadians long ago have had to make the hard choice of not having large families thanks to the taxation that Pierre Trudeau first implemented back in the sixties and then his successors piled on top of. Also don’t forget the leftard Premiers that have run the provinces into the ground with debt, fees, levies, and continue to overtax the populace. Then add on top of it the municipal level that continually raise property taxes and utility bills to finance their schemes and their own raises. Then the crème de la crème we now, thanks to the newest round of liberal egotists running the country, are BORROWING MONEY TO GIVE AWAY to other countries and importing welfare dependent newcomers. Working Canadians cannot afford to have large families because they are too busy paying for the governments’ overt taxation. Working Canadians get to keep approx. 45 cents out of each dollar earned after all three levels of government are done screwing them over.

“And we are importing refugees to sustain our economy?”
That is a story invented back in the sixties to cover the UN agenda that P.Trudeau signed Canada into regarding immigration.

Do the research, it is all online, yours to discover.

At the end of the Day we never get exactly what we want from elections or have the perfect choice. It is always a compromise. So we have choices to make. We have to pick the best (or for some least bad) from the alternatives we have. For Canadian Right leaning Fiscal, Libertarian and Social Conservatives it is time we all unite behind Andrew Scheer.
commented 2017-05-29 11:24:18 -0400
…and smaller government of course.
The other points you mentioned Proud, are actually human values. A rejection of a relativist post modernist attack on civilization as a whole.
commented 2017-05-29 08:37:28 -0400
What???????? No mention of protecting the unborn, rejecting same sex marriage and transgenderism,euthanasia, multiculturalism, smaller government, less Federal Government power, freedom of speech, opinion, and moral conscience.

Canadian Values definition—
No beating your wife
Do not eat your dog or cat
Do not kill your daughter if she wears jeans
Do not kill your daughter if she dates a Canadian
Do not make your wife wear Burkas unless she wants to
Only one wife at a time
Do not have sex with your son
Do not blow people up
If you work, do not cut off your bosses head
Do not kill people with your car or truck
If you know these values, you are vetted better than the Canadian Government could ever vet you.
commented 2017-05-29 00:50:48 -0400
Canadian values? – Fairness, reasonableness, not afraid of hard work if you can enjoy the benefits of it, a natural repulsion of official sleaze, aversion to bullies, love of this country, its people and its outdoors, CFL, NFL, a warm fire on a winter evening, eating terroir – smoked sockeye salmon, Wild goose confrit, Saskatoon berry preserves venison jerky, fiddlehead greens, cod brewis, Rappie and flipper pie, moose steaks, fresh caught dore from a Canadian shield lake and ……… an ice cold beer at the end of the day. Pretty much sums it, if your here for any other reason you are not Canadian

Leviticus 2013—Jamie was repeating part of my post about the dreaded Supply Management.
As usual when you don’t know what you are talking about you fire off names and insults instead of having a discussion.

Leviticus, I have personally witnessed a Dairy Farmer lease out his quota to a big milk company
and he receives a million a year for doing absolutely nothing.
You will never win this argument because none of the following Countries will give us a free trade deal until this communist cancer is eliminated. All of the EU, The USA is looking into it, and the Pacific Trade Deal is a no go, as New Zealand insists that Canada’s Supply Management is ended.
Leviticus you don’t live near the US Border, so you can’t understand the difference in prices. I paid $5.10 today for 4 liters of milk, while last month in Phoenix it was $2.50 for a US Gallon.
It is so bad that the Costco in Belingham, Washington, (near Vancouver) has a NO CANADIANS DAY so the locals can buy milk and cheese before it is all off the shelf. Add 35% exchange for Trudeau’s Dollar and Canadians still think it is a good deal.
Last of all, New Zealand ended their Supply Management years ago, and they now enjoy a huge Dairy Industry, selling to everyone in the area.

“Can someone please define Canadian Values??? "

Sure, PROUD DEPLORABLE.

Honesty, hard work, independence, self sufficiency, pride, standing up for what is right, helping those who TRULY need a hand….

I know, I know. I’m so old school, eh.

Leviticus 2013 – we have been subsidizing the Quebec dairy industry for over half a century, supply management in the form of supply quotas and price fixing was part of the deal. Are you old enough to remember the margarine law implemented by the dairy lobby? My Mom told me about how when margarine was introduced the dairy lobby had the government demand margarine producers do not color their consumer product – it was white like lard and very unappealing to the eye – this was planned to make cheaper margarine unattractive to consumers, so the manufacturers put it in malleable plastic bags with a yellow dye pack you broke and mixed up to make it the same color as butter.

Agri-biz lobby and supply control have had a major impact on the cost of consumer Ag products – supply control itself is a soviet invention but it is used in the inverse in the greed-head marketing boards in the crony klepto-economic system set up in our food supply chain. The producer suffers on both ends of this monopolistic supply system.

BTW I worked on my uncle’s farm for my growing years and he complained about these marketing monopolies.

What a crock.!!!
Our milk and dairy products being so overpriced is the result of protectionism, trade wars and unadulterated agreed as well as a political tool.
Are you willfully simple or do you bust people’s chos for fun with your rhetoric and complete misaligned and misunderstood knowledge of tariffs and why they exist.??!!
To make it clear for you it’s a weapon used by federal government’s, The people who need these products are consistently held hostage by governing authorities to fight there little battles.

The globalist claim to seal to being a greenhouse gas is ridiculously falls as it is invisible to infrared heat and that is what the false science says heats the planet…!! In other words it’s plant food designed to be beneficial or benign!. And what invisible to infrared heat means is it has no effect on holding any heat value because there’s nothing in it that recognizes infrared heat and holds the heat value.!!
Anybody with almost 0 understanding physics already knows this and that statement speaks so loudly to how uneducated the masses have become.!!
You useful idiots are wearing me down but you will never wear me out.!
commented 2017-05-28 16:44:31 -0400
Jamie McMaster… To avoid any broad and sweeping misinterpretation please define greenhouse gas…!
commented 2017-05-28 15:36:08 -0400
" He will support a sector by sector approach to reduce greenhouse gases in cooperation with industry and the United States. "

Then the only saving grace we may have, ANDREW STEPHENSON, are these words, “in cooperation with the United States”.

So you’re going to “defend Canadian values”. eh? I’m glad to hear that. The primary Canadian Value that I grew up with was honesty – here’s a test, Andrew:

“As Prime Minister, Andrew will cancel the Liberal Carbon Tax. He will support a sector by sector approach to reduce greenhouse gases in cooperation with industry and the United States. This will protect Canada’s environment while keeping jobs in Canada and more money in your pocket. "

Good discussion Ezra. You were polite as you always are but you were not shy about putting Andrew on the spot over some of the more prickly issues such as the bug bears of social conservatism. Social issues like same sex marriage and the legalization of abortion on demand. My guess is that Andrew (as his interview responses seemed to indicate) will not allow himself to become too enmeshed in divisive issues. As leader he will need to do a balancing act which involves creating as conservative a policy platform as possible while keeping the party within reach of the Canadian mainstream voter. As Stephen Harper knew and practiced, so Andrew Scheer appreciates and will continue to practice, to wit, unless a political party can get elected all the promises of great social reform do not amount to a hill of bull dung.

That would likely equal the majority of the electorate that voted NDP, Liberal, or Green in the last federal election….and more than a few Conservatives.
commented 2017-05-28 11:05:50 -0400
Until Supply Management in Canada is burnt to the ground, no Country or the EU is going to make a free trade deal with us. Andrew doesn’t seem to understand this point.

Having previously stated that I would be voting for the Christian Heritage Party in the next election if the Conservative Party of Canada didn’t come up with a true conservative leader and a true leader, I am hopeful after watching that short interview with Andrew Scheer…
It is now entirely up to Mr. Scheer to prove his worth and ability as a conservative, Conservative Party of Canada, leader! You have a truck full of opportunities to do just that Mr. Scheer before the next election – what with that lying, treasonous embarrassment that was shoe-horned into the PMO – Jihadi-Justin – stinking up the HOC with his evil, Globalist, Canada-hating treachery. Tearing Justin a new one is the least of it…
Canada is counting on you to show your worth Andrew – please don’t let us down.

His promise to kill the climate tax is a pretty good sign.
