Leaders Debate: Ezra Levant explains why every Canadian should be worried

Rebel Staff

Stephen Harper — whatever else you may think about him — has a mastery of Canada’s economy. It’s not just that he’s an economist by profession. It’s that he has steered Canada through a series of world economic crises since the 2008 Great Recession. Real life experience — what works and what doesn’t. And unlike his thinly-briefed opponents, he knows exactly how much the government has spent on everything from veterans to bridges. 

 Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair couldn’t care less about reality — they have other things on their minds.

Just watched the Debate on CPAC. When it was all over, they had a call in vote on who won the Debate. Harper came out the clear winner.
Trudeau proved one thing to me, he is a bigger idiot than I thought he was. Both him and Mulclair had to revert to their usual tricks, that is shouting and screaming to drowned out Harper.
The whole of the NDP’s platform, is based on when oil was $59.00 a barrel, as it is now 30% lower than that, where dose that leave the NDP.

Stephen Harper was definitely the one who stood out as a true statesman. I feel that Trudeau and Mulcair were both very very rude. Most everytime Harper tried to speak, they spoke and argued over him so you could not hear what any of them were saying. I think Harper was the most respectful and the one who knows how to keep this country on the right track. They keep blaming Harper for all the job losses. Maybe they should look at the Liberals in Ontario and why business’s are moving out. The Federal Gov’t is not responsible for what the Premiers do in their own provinces. Wynne is destroying Ontario. The NDP set it on a downward path in the beginning. NDP ruined Sask, BC, Ont, and now Alberta. There are 3 levels of Gov’t, all responsible in their own way and Harper CANNOT be blamed for all the problems of the provinces OR the situation the world finds itself in right now. But he is responsible to try to make sure that Canada as a whole comes thru as best as possible in this Gobal economy and I believe he is doing a great job.

You missed the point completely. There are conservatives in the comments section at other media sites that are willing to admit that Harper stumbled here or there or that they didn’t like a particular answer or that Trudeau/Mulcair nailed Harper on one particular issue.

Come to The Rebel and there is a Stephen Harper orgy going on. No one is capable of being critical or objective. It’s all about kissing Harper’s ass.

But come to

Thank you Rebel Media for showing this debate and allowing us to comment immediately. I really enjoyed it and I usually don’t watch debates. I must admit thought, that I muted it every time trudope and nulcare were talking because I’m getting tired of the bs. If they keep this up they’re going to have to start handing out shovels. Thanks again. Had a great evening.

Jimmy & Richard go back & read everything from the CBC. That’s your party happening.
commented 2015-09-17 22:42:27 -0400
Jimmy Da Silva didn’t hit anything,cbc,toronto star, ctv and all the other liberal rags are carrying justin trudummy’s water.So what if everybody here likes Harper 95% of the media hates him and that’s still not enough for you liberal hacks.Harper did win tonight,he’s a polished politican and never gets stumped and has a grasp on facts that’s why he’s been elected 3 times in a row and will be 4 after october.Check this link and tell me why we need change.

@richard Brinkman…And you use a source like the progressive The Huffington ComPost and their liberal spin as a scintilla of evidence. Trudeau was hyperventilating, exhibiting style over substance, didn’t strike any effective counterpoints that resonated, wants to run a series of deficits, and you somehow conclude the drama teacher distinguished himself the winner. Obviously, being “Liberal-minded” means never having to say your sorry or embarrassed.

Why don’t these assholes speak English?

Harper should have questioned Mulcair about the manifesto.
commented 2015-09-17 22:31:48 -0400
Wetting my pants over hearing Justin boast several times about Prime Minister Harper’s achievement that Canada’s debt to GDP ratio is so low. Now, with that in mind, he thinks that it’s a good idea to borrow money since interest rates are also low. On the surface, that sounded like a good idea to Greece too. Does he know what kind of people that moneylenders will be sending him when interest rates go up, as one day they certainly will? Does he realize that they’ll probably start by taking his thumbs?

JIMMY DA SILVA – you hit it on the nail Jimmy

Trudeau couldn’t answer a straight question honestly to save his life. So obnoxious and smarmy. He reminded me of a chatty cathy doll, pull the string at the back of his neck and he repeats the same answers over and over and over again.
It was difficult to hear all of Harpers comments over Justin and Toms screaming, and interrupting. Very annoying, and I think the moderator could have done more about it. The moderator was a dufus.
I know Harper is soft spoken, but I could swear his mike was turned down compared to the others, even when they were speaking normally and not yelling.
commented 2015-09-17 22:30:29 -0400
Basically during this debate the two newcomers’ Mulcair and Trudeau are talking pie in the sky!
It reminded me of something a Slaes Supervisor once told me when you don’t have a product on hand, you are not responsible, so you can have the cheapest price in the sales territory! These two Mulcair and Trudeau talk from an imagined Prime Ministers’ Perspective! Reality is actually quite different, PM Stephen Harper eas confident, passionate but calm and speaks from experienced REALITY!
commented 2015-09-17 22:30:17 -0400
Regardless if Harper won the debate or not – do we really expect anyone here to say that Harper really blew it or that Mulcair and Trudeau buried Harper in this debate?

The Rebel is Harper fan boy central. No matter how Harper does – everyone here will say that Harper ruled the debate.

Punch landed????

The federal government cannot get a pipeline through because of the PROVINCES!!!! Quebec is picketing. BC (my home province) is picketing. Blonde chickypoo from Ontario just said not being able to get a pipeline out of the country is HARPER’S fault? Really?
My hands are shaking, I’m so mad.

Trudy was a disgrace, even the Fish Wrap & Mail will agree.
commented 2015-09-17 22:27:33 -0400
When Mulcair and JT remarked about the 3-400,000 job losses, PM Harper missed a great opportunity to point out that the majority of those losses were in Ontario because of high taxes, high power cost and undue union demands all under a more than left liberal government.

I’d skip the post scrum too, why prostrate yourself before the jackals?
commented 2015-09-17 22:26:23 -0400
most MSM will proclaim Trudeau the winner – not so sure how The National Post will spin it
commented 2015-09-17 22:23:57 -0400
Been fun but now I gotta go get psyched up to handle the lies that the MSM will be spreading about the debate.
commented 2015-09-17 22:22:38 -0400
Only Ezra Levant and Brian Lilly can spin this to make it look as if Harper is walking on Water and somehow won this debate
commented 2015-09-17 22:21:26 -0400
Why did PM Stephen Harper nor get equal time to speak after the debate was over?
commented 2015-09-17 22:20:19 -0400
what happened to Harper on the post scrum?

Mr Brinkman …..clearly "winning the debate id a matter of will full assertion of ignorance that suits what YOU want to hear….Mulchair is a Sophist….
commented 2015-09-17 22:19:40 -0400
I watched those two bozos to see what our PM would say post-debate and NOTHING from the G&M!
commented 2015-09-17 22:19:28 -0400
“Trudeau clearly surprised me and won the debate.”
Don’t make me laugh so hard!! I nearly fell off my chair laughing.
commented 2015-09-17 22:19:26 -0400
The PM is clearly the “adult in the room” when these 3 get together. And also the one with the best manners. Hopefully the voters will recognize and appreciate this. I truly admire Harper’s intelligence and his quiet style, but I wish he’d gone ‘pit bull’ on Tommy the Commie over raising corporate taxes. Mulcair actually threw out enough rope to hang himself when he chastised Harper for manufacturing job losses and then suggests that taxing companies more would solve the job problem…… Wish someone would point out that if you raise a company’s taxes the LAST thing they’re going to do is hire more employees! Only a socialist could come up with such a self-contradictory idea.
