Catherine McKenna’s terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

It’s been a tough go lately for Catherine McKenna, Canada’s shouty minister of — this makes me laugh — Environment and Climate Change. Or, as she says, with a straight face, "the minister in charge of the weather."

Imagine having a staff of 24 people working on her Twitter communications, and not one of them saying, um, boss, it’s a bit off.

She’s had a tough go of it lately, as voters in province after province have kicked out governments that supported Trudeau’s carbon tax, and have voted in governments that vigorously oppose them. The latest of course being Jason Kenney in Alberta; but Doug Ford before that, and even the Atlantic provinces.

The Liberals are behind in the polls. Her party’s going to lose office if this keeps up. 

Maybe that’s the time to do less, step away from the Twitter a bit.

But nope:

McKenna went to a bar in St. John's, got drunk, started shouting, and admitted she just shouts and repeats things because she thinks people will believe her if she does that enough.

That video was trounced online; editorials were written about it; it was proof that the government was not only unserious, and that McKenna was unserious, but that even they didn’t believe their own lines.

So she deleted that video, but did an interview with CBC trying to drum up sympathy. She was almost crying because she found a tweet, somewhere on the Internet, that was mean to her.

How do you top all that?

Well, you need some help from a foreign country: The Philippines.

TONIGHT I'll talk about her reaction to the news that the Philippines is sending back the tons of our filthy, unrecyclable garbage (including adult diapers) back to Canada.

You'd think our Environment Minister would be mortified. But here's what McKenna tweeted:

Anchors aweigh! The containers of garbage have departed the Philippines and will arrive in Canada in four weeks — where the waste will be turned into energy that'll power homes in British Columbia.

She’s… excited? She’s… happy? She’s… boasting?

So burning diapers will power homes in Canada, will it?

This weirdo is banning ships that would export ethical oil to Asia. But she’s giddy about welcoming ships bringing toxic garbage back to Canada?

Catherine McKenna is the most gaffe-prone cabinet minister in Ottawa. And — my favourite part is: she just won’t stop...

NEXT: Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter joins me to talk about this mess, and about the scrapping of the carbon tax in Alberta.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I’m calling this:
“Shouty Cathy’s Terrible Horrible No-good Very Bad Week”
Sing to “Danke schoen” (Wayne Newton)

Schadenfreude, I’m feeling Schadenfreude,
Thanks Old Yeller, for the joy again,
Pictures show, your shallow vain deceits,
Second heat, you’re no treat, stay on the street.

Schadenfreude, I’m feeling Schadenfreude,
Save those lies, Shouty Barbie don’t explain,
We all recall your dumb drunk pratfalls,
Lousy calls, Valleygirl squalls, unbelievable gall.

Schadenfreude, I’m feeling Schadenfreude…

If you view the video below you will understand what Justin Trudeau is instigating in Canada.
A long video but well worth watching……Sleep well tonight, Canada is being changed.

And once again, in the interests of answering journalism’s “5Ws”, what’s the name of the defunct company that shipped garbage instead of recyclable plastics in the first place? Who were the owners? Are they being held accountable in any fashion since Canadian taxpayers now are picking up the tab?
commented 2019-06-01 16:36:26 -0400
The Philippines did not agree to take our garbage. They agreed to take recyclables but we gave them garbage.
commented 2019-06-01 16:13:51 -0400
Philippines has taken garbage from us. We paid them to take it. Will we get our money back? What about compensation for the cost of shipping this a second time?

Even with a debilitated military, I believe that Canada would have had no problem taking them on,

Australia has been doing likewise with the understanding that it’s garbage would be recycled, but its just sitting there for at least seven years. Will they dare threaten Australia? Doubtful. But the Philippines understands that we have a politically correct wuss for a PM and a cabinet of like-minded fools and idiots.

Canada has become a laughing stock in the media and to governments around the world. Miss Harper much?

Ah, a student of the master:

Old Yeller drank so much screech in Newfoundland that she has now become St John’s Queen of Screech. Pity.

The worst part of this is that, once again, Canada is an international laughing stock.

Yup, the Liberals are back.

The most serious problem that Canada has with garbage can be found sitting on the Liberal Benches in Parliament. Triple A1 Garbage of the worst kind.

MIKE KRCHNAK commented 13 hours ago.
It is not about the planet, it is about removing the majority its inhabitants so the worlds elite may roam the land as they please.
Poverty is step one……………………………………

I agree with you Mike, except that I think they want to be rid of the White Race to make room for the cheap labour that Islam provides.

Canada continues down the sewer under the trudeau regime.
read the latest:

I personally don’t see it ending anytime soon as there are too many people living in this land who don’t give a damn about canada as they arrive daily and put their own in office to serve their needs only and canadians, well, canadians are more concerned with who will give them the most "handouts’ and their ability to continue shopping, shopping, shopping while also qualifying for more and more credit- to shop .
This land is a "Titanic’ which hit the berg 3 plus years ago and we are quickly descending to the bottom while our so called ‘leaders’ along with their special people are all in the lifeboats above.

Well Climate Barbie has now become Garbage Barbie. She is descending into a self-made hell! She is the quintessential Neurotic suffering from Neurosis. At least she spoke( the nly time when drunk), the truth once when she talks about shouting message over and over! We have seen that 39% Mental Midgets and their bauble headed friends certainly believe the Liberal Pablum.

In regard to effectively dealing with that hysterical soy-boy, beta-male, Jihadi-Justin-Groper and his overwrought, unhinged acting out and other tantrums is concerned…some advice:
“How to calm down hysterical women”
or, even better, there’s this classic:
As far as that delusional screecher Climate Barbie is concerned…the word GAG comes to mind…

I like that message to Justin ‘The Garbage Meister’ Trudeau, from Rodrigo…“EAT IT!”
I guess this is why it’s a bad idea exiling the enemies-of-Canada, like the LPC, et al, because like fetid rotting trash, it can come back…

The recycling of things like scrap metal and any thing else worth money is already being done. Two things can be done with the plastic,s. As mentioned below incinerate
them. The other use is to add them to road asphalt mix.
I find it hard to believe that shipping would even be considered. Heavily subsidized by the tax payer recycling fees.
commented 2019-06-01 08:29:04 -0400
Haul back rates for empty container ship,s are low. So recycling is another scam that can be used to fill these containers to make money. Anyone think some of these countries might be unscrupulous enough to dump it at sea? Creating a giant floating mass of garbage.

“Pathetic that he (Scheer) starts off his list of threats that Canada faces with the UN’s claim of the threat of climate change introduced by man-made emissions of carbon dioxide.”

Pathetic is right, RON VOSS. The Great Grinning Pathetic Putz.

Interesting that Climate Barbie Warrior Princess has now embraced garbage incineration. For years the Green Meanies have fought garbage incineration tooth and nail even though the technology has been clean for quite some time. In fact, their intransigence in this respect has greatly contributed to the debris in the world’s oceans that is so bad they now feel compelled to ban plastic straws.

I’m sure that after the October elections Climate Barbie would feel more at home on Saltspring Island, getting stinko with her friend Dizzy Lizzy… And just imagine then what a great bobbing and weaving bicycling pair they would make!!… Sheer comedy; sheer magic…

I love showing my Gosnell movie to my family and friends. I know it’s a privilege to witness. It’s so creepy to know that people can be so unconscionable. I swear Trudeau wants to drag society into hell to keep him and his dad company

Harold Hoff posted in part…"I’d humbly suggest: increasing taxation will shift a further component of the populace into poverty. That’s what is does – undebatable. "
Well Harold, that is what it is all about!
It is not about the planet, it is about removing the majority its inhabitants so the worlds elite may roam the land as they please.
Poverty is step one.
